We firmly believe we have a responsibility not just for helping people into jobs but for establishing and maintaining sustainable and inclusive employment practices. This is not just a statement for us, it’s something we consider in all our processes and practices across the business.
Pertemps, like any major business, has an impact on the environment. We are committed to understanding what that means in our everyday lives and making every effort to minimise that impact to protect future generations. Among other initiatives, we are working to offset carbon emissions, reduce energy use, cut our vehicle fleet’s consumption and increase waste recycling.
Opportunity for all has been at the heart of Pertemps’ culture since we were founded in 1961. We are passionate about making a difference in the local communities in which we work, continually looking for ways of better supporting the people we work with. We will continue to sustain a long-term strategy which best serves the diversity of these communities, enabling everyone to maximise their potential.
Governance isn't just about control. it is about setting clear policy and minimum standards that are maintained across the business. We know we must demonstrate to everyone – colleagues, clients, candidates, suppliers, industry bodies and regulators, among others – that our ESG policies and procedures are not just ‘on paper’ but are truly effective. We are committed to this and will regularly update on our performance.
