Group included in FTSE4Good Index for work on ESG practices

We’ve been recognised as part of the FTSE4Good Index as we work to energise progress for all

FTSE4Good award badge

Specialist Staffing Group's parent company has been recognised as part of the FTSE4Good Index for our work in building a sustainable future and empowering communities across the world.

Compiled by FTSE Russell, the FTSE4Good Index measures the performance of companies demonstrating strong environmental, social and governance practices.

This year alone, the Group has delivered over 1,500 hours of volunteering support, much of which has, and continues to be, in direct response to Covid-19.

The economic impact of the pandemic is disproportionately impacting people from underserved communities, and we are using our skills and network to help.

We are collaborating with community partners such as Pep-up Tech, UrbanEd, Generating Genius, Joblinge, Halogen Foundation and the Aleto Foundation to support greater access to STEM career pathways. So far this year more than 250 people have accessed the programmes we are part of.

We encourage our diverse and inclusive workforce to utilise paid volunteering leave to develop skills, diverse thinking and deliver social value in our communities.

And we contribute to causes that have a demonstrable link to our business; including employability and raising aspirations, empowering communities to solve challenges with STEM solutions, diversifying the STEM talent pipeline, and carbon offsetting to strengthen renewable energy offerings in developing countries.

We have also created a diverse workforce and inclusive culture, where all of our people share our common principles; build trust, care then act, and be clear then aim high.
