Corporate responsibility


 

Social responsibility

Social responsibility

Curo recognises the importance of conducting business in a socially responsible manner. This is demonstrated in the way we deal with our employees and talent community, as well as customers and the wider population.

We consider that social responsibility is an integral element of good business management. Our staff mix accurately reflects the multi-cultural nature of international business.

The relationship we have with our clients is based on honesty and transparency. The testimonials we receive and our high rate of repeat business proves this an ethos that works.

But we also interact with the wider community, and our primary charity is Spreading Smiles. It’s a children’s charity based in India. Please visit www.facebook.com to view some of their tremendous work.

Industry responsibility

Industry responsibility

Our Directors are innovators and thought-leaders, proud to work in the talent solutions and services industry. It’s an industry that contributes £billions to the UK economy and we strive to ensure we act with integrity, care and respect.

We are members of the The Recruitment & Employment Confederation and comply with all of the requirements detailed in the Employment Agencies Act 1973 and Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003.

Environmental responsibility

Environmental responsibility

Curo is a virtual business, all our staff work from home. This reduces the need for employees to travel to a central office, thus eliminating the greenhouse gases produced by transport (82% of greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, much of which comes from vehicles).

Our homes are more energy efficient than ever before, and research from the UK government reports that households showed the second greatest improvement in energy efficiency recently (Dept. Energy & Climate Change, 2015).

As part of our staff induction, we give energy saving advice for homes which is provided by the Energy Saving Trust. We also encourage staff to recycle as much of their waste as possible and limit the use of printing at home.

Data responsibility

Data responsibility

We apply our core values of integrity, care and respect to the way we process data. We take care to ensure it is accurate, we respect that much of the data we handle is sensitive, and our integrity ensures we comply with all data legislation.

Naturally, we are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) under the guidelines of the Data Protection Act 1995 (reg no. Z3549955), and aware of the powers of the Employment Agency Standards (EAS) inspectors.

In addition, we comply with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) and are currently reviewing our data processes so we are ready for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
