Ecovadis, which provides procurement professionals with sustainability ratings of suppliers, awarded Start People a score of 81%, placing the company among the most sustainable 1% of temporary staffing agencies in the country.

A real, positive impact

The Ecovadis assessment looks at a wide range of sustainable topics, including environmental performance, HR practices, business ethics and responsible purchasing. The score awarded to Start People France confirms that it is having a real, positive impact on the lives of employees, clients and the community.

Training temporary employees

One area in which Start People France excels, is its commitment to training temporary employees, boosting their long-term employability while at the same time meeting their current employer’s needs. 80% of the company’s training plan budget is allocated to training temporary employees.

In 2018, special efforts were also made to improve the employability of young people (18-30) and disabled candidates. Through special recruitment campaigns, training sessions and awareness initiatives Start People France managed to hire and place more than 1,100 disabled temporary workers.

For more information on Start People France’s philosophy and the personal experience of Damien Sedrick, a disabled worker who found permanent employment thanks to the support he received, see the report on the Recruit Holdings website.

Recruit Global Staffing respects, celebrates, and capitalizes on each other’s differences, such as diversity in nationality, race, religion, gender, age, disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, and more. We strive to close the opportunity gap. That is why we fully support the Week of the Anonymous CV of Unique, one of our brands in the Netherlands.

A recent study by Unique shows that an initiative like the Week of the Anonymous CV is needed urgently. In a survey by Unique, 56% of Dutch employees responsible for HR indicate that personal data always play a certain role in the application process. Despite the fact that they may not want this to be the case. The survey was held among 620 HR-employees.

A foreign sounding name

Age discrimination is particularly common: 4 out of 10 interviewees sometimes did not invite someone because of age. This is followed by place of residence, photo, gender and origin. 

Week of the Anonymous CV

To draw attention on discrimination consultants of Unique during the Week of the Anonymous CV will only use CVs that are stripped of personal data. By focusing on work experience, talent and motives of the applicants, Unique wants to hold up a mirror to Dutch society. The first Week of the Anonymous CV took place in October 2018.

Equal opportunities

Diana Magielsen, Operational Director of Unique: “With our second Week of the Anonymous CV we want to make people think twice and trigger a change in mentality. We believe that everyone should have equal opportunities on the labour market. By removing the personal data from the CVs Unique wants to show that people and their talents and ambitions are the most important. We don’t tolerate discrimination based on personal data.” 

Keep the conversation going

Magielsen: “We consider this a very important social issue. We feel a strong obligation to address it. The Week of the Anonymous CV helps us to keep the conversation going and to create awareness for the importance of diversity and inclusiveness. Having to go against the tide is a confirmation that this week is desperately needed. And we like to take that pioneering role!”

Australia is in the middle of an important transition from fossil fuel-based energy systems to more renewable energy options. At its current rate, it is on track for a goal of 50% renewable electricity by 2025. The transition also creates job opportunities. As the workforce manager for a huge solar project in North West Victoria, Chandler Macleod Group is making sure that these opportunities benefit the local community.

Australia’s top solar spot

In 2018, Chandler Macleod Group (CMG) was appointed as the workforce management provider for a new 112 Megawatt Karadoc Solar Farm being constructed by Beon Energy Solutions. Remotely located in North West Victoria - Australia's top solar spot due to the state's highest solar exposure and average sunshine hours - the farm will generate enough power to supply 110,000 homes.

Prioritizing social value

Chandler Macleod Group was tasked with recruiting and employing a diverse and strictly local workforce of 300 people. Chandler Macleod Group partnered with six local community groups to ensure that the majority of the construction workers were locally sourced, and that people were from a variety of different backgrounds including female, indigenous and mature workers and the long-term unemployed.
