Our principles

At Staffline, we place great importance on the role we play in helping to support local communities and the environment surrounding us.

We understand the importance of integrating our business values and operations to meet the expectations of our stakeholders. These include clients, employees, flexible workers, regulators, investors, suppliers, the community and the environment.

We recognise that our social, economic and environmental responsibilities to these stakeholders are integral to our business. We aim to demonstrate these responsibilities through our actions and within our corporate policies.

Staffline recognises the value of Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) and the vital importance of delivering our purpose to put people into work.

As a business focused on recruitment, skills and employability training, we play a pivotal role in changing lives and empowering communities in both the UK and the island of Ireland.

Given the size of our business, it is important that the Group provides leadership and sets an example in operating sustainably, not only in the corporate space but also more widely as an organisation of influence in society and in our communities.

“Our focus is to make a positive difference to people’s lives and deliver social value to the communities in which we operate.”

Our approach.

Our purpose drives our activities. As a major recruiter and training provider across multiple sectors, we play a crucial role in both preparing people for employment and connecting them to suitable opportunities, which supports local communities and wider society.

Our strategy.

Our sustainability strategy sets out how we deliver against our responsibilities and is based around four key pillars, covering environmental, social and governance issues.

1. Making a positive difference to people and society

This is our key focus and the area where we can deliver the greatest positive impact.

By developing skills and delivering training and support services, we transform lives, including those of many people from disadvantaged backgrounds, helping to unlock potential, improve prospects and get people into fulfilling jobs.
