Recruitment agency donates 10% of each placement to sustainability

Signal of change / Recruitment agency donates 10% of each placement to sustainability

By Kate Evans / 08 Nov 2017

This signal was originally written on 31 March 2017.

Planet Graduates, a UK sustainable recruitment agency passionate about contributing towards environmental sustainability, is donating 10% of the returns on every placement it makes to environmental projects and organisations. On average, this is £400 per vacancy filled.

So what?

This shows how a recruitment process can in itself have the power to influence our future. PG will be able to donate to a vast range of projects, targetting in particular the clients' local area, to bring the impact - and PR opportunities - closer to home.

The practice is comparable to the tradition of tithing - where businesses contribute to causes they believe in, particularly a church. What might the impact be if other agencies and industries follow suit, making the environment their central concern? And how far could this go towards a shift in business attitudes?


What might the implications of this be? What related signals of change have you seen?
