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.
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.
