Building a sustainable business

ingrid armstead

Building a sustainable approach to business has been at the heart of Robert Walters’ culture throughout the past 30 years. It started with creating a fulfilling environment for our people to work in and instilling a belief in doing recruitment the right way.

In turn we developed a genuinely passionate group of people who wanted to look after our candidates and clients for the long-term. Our people stayed with us, developing their careers for the long-term.

They grew the business across the globe, taking that unique culture with them. Their passion extends beyond the business to supporting the communities we work in today. Whether we’re developing great relationships with clients, working hard to engage our people, partnering with charities, or encouraging diversity, that’s all part of our sustainable business strategy.

Our approach is to keep charitable and social initiatives relevant to our local communities, building on the strengths of our people and making them integral to our business strategy. This means social responsibility isn’t an afterthought, it’s part of how we operate.

We’re working hard to do more though - we’ve retained our FTSE4Good status since 2008, and nearly 27% of our people are working in ISO14001certified offices – the International Standard for Environmental Management. Now, our CSR Working Group is pushing forward a globally aligned approach to take forward the best of what we’re already doing, as well as launching new initiatives.
