Being a responsible business

Committed to operating as responsible corporate citizens

Our ethical business principles

As a responsible business we’re proud to uphold strong ethical principles, policies, procedures and practices in everything we do. This dedication shapes every aspect of our business, ensuring that we continue to be a trusted partner to our stakeholders. 

To meet the evolving expectations of best practice governance, we ensure we’re always operating responsibly and with strong internal oversight.


Framework of approach

Structure and responsibilities

Review organisational design for ESG governance and ensure the Board and management committees have a diverse combination of skills and experience to govern effectively.


Ensure that remuneration policies promote long-term sustainable success.

Policies and procedures

Continue to review policies, especially those aligned to business priorities, and comply with the obligations of the UN Global Compact.

Launching our enhanced ESG strategy

In 2023, we launched our new ESG strategy, built upon six key pillars. Developed following a thorough materiality assessment conducted by external ESG specialists and aligned to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, the strategy takes a long-term strategic approach to ESG within our business, for our people and to help our clients and candidates. Our ESG Committee is responsible for continuing to drive forward our ESG strategy.

Joining the UN Global Compact

In January 2023, we were proud to join the UN Global Compact, a voluntary platform for responsible business practices.  

This partnership aligns our strategy and operations with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), focusing on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.  

With over 20,000 participants in over 160 countries, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world. Our membership strengthens our commitment to ethical business practices and creating a sustainable future, alongside other leading global businesses.


We are committed to aligning with best practice frameworks and independent evaluation of our processes and ESG policies.

Operating ethically and responsibly

Part of our responsibility as an industry leader is to maintain the highest ethical standards in all our operations, as outlined in our Ethical Conduct Policy. We also maintain a zero-tolerance policy against corruption and bribery, which applies to all directors, employees and contractors undertaking work on behalf of the business. 

With regards to our impact on the wider workforce and society at large, the business is committed to protecting all workers’ rights in accordance with local labour legislation, and we remain vigilant for signs of slavery and human trafficking.
