We are now a B Corporation. This means we have been recognised as meeting the very highest standards of social and environmental impact and join the likes of other B Corps such as TOMS, innocent Drinks and Patagonia.
Ann Swain, CEO of APSCo said:
“This is great news to hear that tml Partners have been B Corp certified and provides a fantastic benchmark for the UK recruitment industry to play a leading role in best practice ESG. I’d really encourage all our members to start on the journey of becoming a B Corp.”
tml Partners is run by Simon Bassett and Charlie Green and is the first specialist executive search firm globally to have their business impact and ESG strategy B Corp certified.
Bassett, CEO of tml Partners said:
“I’ve never felt profit and purpose had to be mutually exclusive in business, so from the outset of tml Partners we wanted to set a very high benchmark to drive change in our industry. If you’ve never heard of B Corp then I’d urge you to learn more about them. It’s a rapidly growing movement using business as a force for good. It’s so important now that we collectively work towards an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economic system for people and the planet. It’s been a huge collective effort across the tml team and we’d really like to thank all our colleagues and suppliers for their continued support on this journey.”
tml Partners commit five percent of their staff time to pro bono work, typically aimed at supporting those in NEET circumstances (not in employment, education or training) to get into apprenticeships. We work very closely to upskill a number of educational charities and also provide targeted grants as well.
Green, MD of tml Partners said:
“As a certified B Corp we have gone through a rigorous assessment, over many years, to ensure we meet the very highest standards in ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance). We’re now carbon negative and have stringent controls over our environmental impact. B Corps have to align themselves with UN Sustainability Goals they can impact. For us, as a recruitment organisation, the greatest impact we can have is on making a positive social impact. So we launched The Tomorrow Foundation which has a major focus on improving social mobility, creating fairer futures and having a meaningful impact on the community. It’s doing our bit to make a difference where we can and our staff love the personal impact they have too.”
This recognition is just the beginning. We are a purpose led business and strive to create meaningful impact, remove systemic barriers for diverse and under-represented talent and help create a fairer future for tomorrow.
