Interested in joining the Harrison Holgate team? Read why we’re one of the top recruiters to work for, and what makes our team so dynamic, fun, and rewarding…

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

Diversity and inclusion

At Harrison Holgate we believe that to build and sustain a diverse and inclusive organisation D&I needs to be driven from Board level down and integrated into every core people process.  We are critically aware of our role in this and regularly monitor our placement levels to track our own involvement. 

Increasingly, employers are recognising the business benefits of improving diversity and inclusion within their workforce.  This is from the top down, with diverse boards making diverse decisions and so on.  By recruiting individuals from a range of backgrounds, be it gender, age, ethnicity or sexuality, businesses gain access to a far wider variety of views and perspectives and this will impact productivity in a positive way.

CLIENTS

Corporate social responsibility

We take responsibility for the company’s effects on environmental and social well-being very seriously and we actively encourage our team members to give back to charitable projects.

Over the last few years we have been proud to have helped many different charities from Cancer and Heart research to local hospices and other volunteer organisations. During 2018 we embarked on one of our largest charitable projects in working with the Jubilee Sailing Trust to raise money for this worthy charity through sponsorship of the Lord Dannatt’s Challenge.

Jubilee Sailing Trust
Woodland Trust
Whitechapel Mission

During 2019 we focused on homelessness in particular within London and we have supported Crisis plus also the Whitechapel Mission. Whitechapel Mission are an inspirational charity who have been serving the homeless and marginalised for 143 years. They provide a day centre, skills training and career advice, activity programmes and specialist support for complex needs. Whitechapel Mission believes everyone deserves a chance, regardless of their background, race or religion and are open to all, without exception. They are open every day of the year and see as many as 300 homeless and vulnerable men and women each day. All without public funding. During 2019 we have made financial contributions and during 2020 we will be helping out by cooking and serving a breakfast service to the >300 people that visit each day.

During 2020 we have been thinking about the environment and in February held a Charity Quiz for over 100 clients raising money for the Woodland Trust. During the fun Quiz we raised enough money for the Woodland Trust to help them plant almost 1000 trees.
