SThree’s purpose is to bring skilled people together to build the future. Bringing people together in person may be a little more difficult right now, but that doesn't stop us uniting together to support local communities.
Across the UK, our people are coming together to make a difference - you can take a look at some of our initiatives below.
Liz is an Associate Business Manager for Computer Futures in Manchester, managing the public sector team which supplies interim professionals to the NHS and Housing Associations. This has given her a great insight into the NHS, which she cares deeply about. Her support for the NHS goes beyond her role at SThree, and came into sharp focus with the progression of the Coronavirus pandemic in the UK. It all started with a WhatsApp Group.

Some of our colleagues in Glasgow were able to use their volunteering hours recently to help one of our charity partners – Refuweegee – to decorate their new office. Refuweegee helps welcome people to the city when they have been forced to leave their own homes and countries. The charity provides refugees who have arrived in Glasgow with welcome packs including clothing, food, homeware, toys and games amongst other means of support. Selina and her team were super welcoming to our SThree volunteers and were really grateful for their assistance.
CSR takes shape in various forms across SThree - find out more and learn about all the ways you can get involved.
Giving back is hugely important to us at SThree - it's part of the fabric of our company. That's why we offer our people five volunteering days to support an initiative of your choice. You could use this time to help a local community project or you could choose a charity that's especially close to your heart.
We have a variety of programmes in place across SThree that seek to support career pathways - these range from initiatives that aim to help from disadvantaged communities and projects that support emerging STEM talent across the globe.
We are committed to ensuring our environmental impact is minimal and we actively work to reduce our carbon footprint. As a global business, we've made a pledge to reduce our emissions by 20% by 2024.
Through annual carbon reporting we identify our main emission factors and actively work to reduce these through changing our business practices and influencing the behaviours of our people and suppliers.
Our people are integral to making SThree what it is. And we're committed to creating an environment that priorities their wellbeing above all else. Our refreshed 2020 D&I strategy details our vision to become leaders of diversity and inclusion within the staffing industry.
We also offer personalised learning and development programmes that help our people to progress their careers in a way that's right for them.
Every year, we play our part in supporting a range of communities. Download our most recent CSR report to find out more about what this means.
