We know that the sustainable profitable growth of our Company depends on the economic, environmental and social sustainability of the communities we live and work in. That’s why we put sustainability at the heart of our organization and embed it into both our strategy and day-to-day activities.
We have ambitious plans for the future. Growth and long-term value are the main drivers. Achieving this growth in a sustainable and responsible manner is an absolute precondition. That is why we formalized our ESG commitment and strategy framework in a charter.
Our ESG strategy sits alongside our business strategy and has three pillars: Environment, Social and Governance. Far from being an add-on, it is core to our ambitions, operations and success.
The ESG charter set outs the strategic pillars of our ESG strategy and how we will implement this strategy into our businesses. This charter is a guideline for all internal and external stakeholders involved.
Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations
House of HR has identified and integrated the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as an internationally recognised framework.
We have identified six SDG's regarding which we, as a company, have the biggest impact in the light of our three strategic pillars.
SDG 3: Good Health and well-being
House of HR ensures a good working environment and contributes to the well-being of its employees. We are committed to a safe workplace and a healthy work–life balance. We want to help all people in need so that we can add value to our communities outside of our direct stakeholders.
SDG 4: Quality Education
We pay attention to the personal development and guidance of our employees, workers and clients. We invest in trainings for their personal and professional growth. Through our people, we make a difference to our clients and we are able to help our clients achieve their goals.
SDG 5: Gender equality
As a company, we strive for effective participation at all levels. We do not tolerate discrimination against individuals on the basis of age, origin, pregnancy, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, family situation or any other characteristic that could be described as discrimination.
SDG 8: Decent work and economic growth
Work is the basis of our DNA. We support and subscribe to economic productivity, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation as conditions for a better society. We promote entrepreneurship, and we aim to provide our clients with the best solutions for their challenges and goals.
SDG 10: Reduced inequalities
House of HR and its employees treat all individuals and partners equally and fairly. To reduce inequality, we also implement specific initiatives to support people who are further away from the labour market and help them to integrate more easily.
SDG 13: Climate action
We support environmental issues being a top priority for society. We will therefore keep on working to reduce our carbon footprint and energy use. In addition to creating awareness among our Happy Rebels, we are committed to continuing to invest in initiatives enhancing climate action.
Without any doubt, the most prominent example of our ESG commitment is JobRoad. This international non-profit organization is helping people to re-integrate on the labor market and hence, into society.
Deeply convinced by the fact that work is the ultimate way to re-integrate vulnerable people in society, JobRoad is a European network organization for people holding a significant distance towards the labor market. The non-profit organization has a double goal: to combat the acute shortage of workers, and the promotion of integration through work.
JobRoad started in 2016 in Belgium and has since then been steering people from vulnerable groups towards suitable employers to obtain valuable jobs. Through its highly personalized approach, JobRoad breaks through barriers such as language, mobility and competency as they all obstruct the access to work.
JobRoad is networking between four partners: employers and their partnering agencies, authorities and intermediary organizations. They all work together to fill vacancies with untapped talent.
JobRoad’s social impact is huge, needless to say. It gives stability through work, boosting confidence and self-esteem, it offers income and helps vulnerable people take their lives back in their own hands.
