Sustainability at the Staffing SBU
Our activities to help promote a sustainable society
The Staffing SBU plays an integral role in the SDGs Domino Effect. By working to create optimal matching between candidates and clients, which directly leads to "SDG 10. Reduced Inequalities," we are also contributing to the achievement of "SDG 5. Gender Equality." This is particularly the case in countries and regions where female participation in the labor market is low. Through this, we can also contribute to "SDG 8. Decent Work and Economic Growth."
Additionally, we firmly believe that it is important to protect the human rights of all stakeholders, including temporary agency workers as well as our management and employees, and ensure diversity and inclusion while operating our services. On this point, we adhere to the United Nations Guiding Principles for Businesses and Human Rights", and continue to raise the standards of our services, including our Staffing business.
