Standards of Business Conduct

We conduct business according to rigorous ethical, professional and legal standards and ensure compliance with the requirements of the Employment Agencies & Business Regulations 2003, (“The Regulations”) which governs and oversees the activities of all recruitment companies within the UK. The Regulations are monitored and enforced by the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate, with potential prosecutions and prohibitions for agencies that breach the Regulations.

We enthusiastically encourage all our recruitment staff to become individual members of the REC, which requires members to maintain minimum standards of Professional Conduct.

Our impact on the environment

Our objective is to reduce our impact on the environment, which includes factors that contribute to climate change, via a commitment to continual improvement and to give maximum co-operation in complying with environmental legislation and regulations.

All branch locations have been supplied with recycling facilities and are repeatedly encouraged to use energy saving light bulbs. We also insist that all IT equipment is switched off when not in use to prevent the unnecessary and needless waste of energy.

Our impact on communities

We appreciate that our business undertakings have varying direct and indirect effects on the societies in which we operate. We endeavor to administer all activities in a correct and responsible manner and believe that appropriate performance mirrors business success.

We continually review, update and improve our social responsibility programme and encourage our business partners to apply corporate social responsibilities applicable and fitting to their business.

We inspire our staff to participate in local activities and support charitable events.

Supporting charity

We are proud to support Byte Nite and Action for Children. We take part in regular fund raising activities and believe that it is important to give back to the community.

 

Equal Opportunities Policy

Savant is dedicated to creating an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all our staff are recognised and valued. Every employee is entitled to a working environment that promotes dignity and respect to all. No form of intimidation, bullying or harassment is tolerated.

Training, development and progression opportunities are available to all staff. Breaches of our equality policy are regarded as misconduct and lead to disciplinary proceedings.
