Finding it challenging in the current labor market to employ and retain dedicated, reliable staff?

By adopting a more purposeful approach, businesses have the power to create real change and bring disadvantaged people into the labor market; whether they’re young people, people of color, people with a disability, the long term unemployed, returning citizens or recently arrived migrants and refugees.

 

Want to make an impact for the environment, a social cause or to improve staff loyalty? By making small changes to the way you purchase, the impact can be enormous. The average Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) budget of most companies is around 100 times smaller than its procurement budget. If you have long term contracts with existing suppliers, we can work with them too, helping them source tier 2 and 3 goods in a more sustainable way.
