GS2 Partnership: Leading the Way as a B Corp Certified Recruitment Agency

Hey there, welcome back to the GS2 journey, striding towards a greener, more conscientious future. We're excited to share our latest milestone: Official B Corp Certification! Dive in below to learn about what this certification means, how we earned it, and the incredible benefits it brings to both our team and our clients.

Understanding B Corp Certification

Let's start with the basics: B Corp certification. It’s granted by B Lab, a nonprofit organisation that assesses companies based on their performance in five key areas: governance, workers, community, environment, and customers. It's not just a label; it's recognition granted to companies that uphold the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. B Corps don't just chase profits; they purpose with prosperity, ensuring our decisions positively impact our employees, customers, community, and the planet.

Why B Corp Certification Matters

In recent years, the significance of B Corp certification has soared. Consumers are increasingly mindful of the social and environmental footprint of the brands they support. They're actively seeking out businesses that align with their values, making B Corp certification a beacon of trust and integrity.

The GS2 Partnership Perspective

Why is B Corp certification particularly crucial for a recruitment agency like us? Because we're not just matchmakers; we're influencers. Our role in shaping the workforce means we have a responsibility to champion social and environmental considerations in every placement we make. Pursuing B Corp certification was a natural step for us and hopefully, many more businesses around the world. 

Our Journey to Certification

Earning our B Corp stripes wasn't a walk in the park. We rolled up our sleeves and made significant changes to our operations and policies. Naming every challenge an opportunity for growth and learning. The assessment process pushed us to be better, to do better – and we emerged stronger for it.

Becoming B Corp certified has transformed GS2 Partnership from the inside out. Our team is more engaged and motivated, knowing that they're part of something bigger and leaving the world better than they found it. Clients and partners recognise our commitment to sustainability too - strengthening our relationships and opening doors to new opportunities.
