Recruitment firm targets sustainability
A recruitment firm has announced its commitment to promoting sustainability throughout its business practices.
D7 Recruitment has introduced a series of measures aiming to reduce the company's environmental impact, including entirely home-based working consultants, therefore negating the need to travel into an office.
At the same time the firm has instituted paperless operations, with communications, such as payslips, being e-mailed to employees.
"Nearly £5 billion is wasted on energy in the UK every year. This is enough to give every man, woman and child £84 a year. When you think of things like that, we all have to do our bit," said D7 director, Angela De Souza.
"This is a really important area we are embracing, but we are making it fun too," she added. "We have even started running competitions amongst our staff as to who can run the most energy efficient home office."
Among the other measures introduced by the company as it aims to promote sustainable practices include introducing video CVs for job candidates and corporate videos for business clients looking to attract workers.
