This Earth Day, we look at our dedication to being a responsible business and why our clients choose Impact as their ethical recruitment partner. Working positively with our team, clients, candidates, and wider community is part of our DNA. We believe a more sustainable world starts with us taking action!

Diversity & Inclusion

As people who really want to make a difference, we’ve talked to lots of clients about how important it is to bring in candidates from different backgrounds, especially those that have faced difficulties and our ED&I manager Dan, works closely with our team and clients to inform and educate, we asked him why businesses need to diversify their hiring process.

‘Diversifying the hiring process is great for both businesses and professionals from marginalized and under-represented groups. Whether it’s anonymizing CVs or having a diverse interview panel, companies are at their best socially and commercially when they’re able to attract and retain talent from diverse backgrounds. Knowing that you’re playing a part in ensuring a fair and equitable process for all feels rewarding. It’s a win-win at the end of the day!’

AfroYanga is happening this summer!

As part of our Social Impact programme, Impact is excited to be collaborating with one of our community partners Living Free UK to organise AfroYanga (meaning ‘African Pride’) – an annual Pride event that celebrates LGBTQ+ Migrants, asylum seekers, and Refugees of African descent and allies in the U.K. This is a special evening to inspire and celebrate through insightful discussions and workshops, professional networking and an Afro-themed entertainment with food, music, and drinks.

For more information on how to get involved, please contact Daniel.

Employee Involvement & Wellbeing

We appreciate the pressures of juggling life and work and ensure all of our team are looked after within a supportive and fun environment!

Our ‘Community Programme’ benefits charities and community groups, as well as promoting a sense of achievement and positive team building like our most recent trip, where the team headed outside of the city to plant trees.

Our team’s wellbeing is our top priority, so we enhanced our benefit package to introduce critical illness cover – a benefit we hope our team will never need, but we know how important it is to have the reassurance and support!

Ethical Business Values

We’re committed to using our position as a force for good! In 2019 we were accredited as a London Living Wage employer which means that every member of staff and our temps will earn a real Living Wage, plus we insist that all our 3rd party contracted staff are paid above the Living Wage too.
