Corporate responsibility

Impellam Group operates across an incredibly diverse set of geographies. Our responsibility to the societies, environments and economies we are a part of is embedded within our Virtuoso culture and lived through our mission to help people find meaningful work and building better businesses; creating value for our colleagues, candidates, customers and supply chains.

Modern slavery
Modern slavery

We are an international people business and we focus on harnessing the extraordinary qualities of people who make a valuable difference to businesses, communities and economies. We are committed to continually improving our practices to combat human trafficking and slavery, and encourage the same high standards from our suppliers and other business partners – recognising that all people should be treated with dignity and respect.

Equality, diversity & inclusion (ED&I)

Impellam is committed to bringing its people, candidates, clients and suppliers together to realise a vision for an equal, diverse and inclusive organisation. We are proud of our inclusive culture where colleagues are encouraged to bring their authentic selves to work.

In 2020, we reviewed and refreshed our approach to ED&I to recognise our renewed commitment to our people, candidates, customers, and supply chains we are a part of. Our regional focus on ED&I is governed by a global programme across the Group to bring our efforts together under shared leadership and governance - balanced with Group wide, regional and brand-specific actions - to deliver the people and strategic benefits of a clear strategy and established roadmap; making Impellam a more diverse and inclusive business everywhere we operate. Under the direction and leadership of Global Group Directors and Regional Management, with direct sponsorship from our Group Chief Executive Officer – the ED&I programme and steering group includes colleagues from our key regions, the UK & Europe, North America, Australia & New Zealand. We understand that creating real change takes time, which is why we’ve set out our strategic objectives for equality, diversity and inclusion over the next three to five years.

Impellam's environmental impact
Environmental impact

We are committed to following environmental best practices in the day-to-day conduct of our business, which includes the use of sustainable and/or recyclable materials where possible. Regular environmental reviews are taken, and parts of our Group have achieved ISO 14001 accreditation in relation to environment management systems. To keep our people informed on best practices, all Impellam people undertake environmental awareness training, and environmental audits of key suppliers are continuously implemented to positively engage and influence suppliers’ behaviours.
