We have a reputation for operating at the highest level of integrity. Our strong commitment to responsible business practices is reflected in everything we do — from the transparency of our communications with shareholders, as shown in our Corporate Governance structure and policies, to the unparalleled benefits that we offer to our temporary employees and contractors. We strive to provide a great work environment for our employees and to be a beacon of integrity for our clients.
Our’ approach to social responsibility is driven by our Global Values, Vision and Strategies that determine the way in which we do business. We are committed to: respect for people, clients and community and the role of work in their lives; sharing our knowledge and expertise to develop sustainable workforce practices throughout the world; and striving for excellence through innovation to develop socially inclusive working environments for the long-term. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics promotes honest and ethical conduct throughout the organization, as well as provides a mechanism to report unethical conduct via our Ethics Hotline to help preserve the culture of honesty and accountability throughout the Company.
Our’ business is, in itself, socially responsible because everything we do is geared toward connecting people with jobs, which enables individuals to support themselves and their families. Our free training programs allow all of our permanent, contract and temporary employees to improve their skills and grow in their careers, thereby improving their long-term career potential. Our outplacement services ensure that, when a client has to eliminate jobs, it is done in a manner that enables individuals to receive the support, training and career counseling they require in finding their way back to employment.
We strive to be socially responsible in every aspect of our business. And we often focus our resources with special initiatives in which we can have the most impact, helping to create a bridge to employment for disadvantaged individuals through various workforce development programs around the world. We are also dedicated to increasing awareness of, and opposition to, labor practices that exploit individuals, particularly those who are vulnerable.
