1: We are fair, legal and ethical in our resource planning and recruitment procedures, with specific regard to actively promoting diversity and inclusion within the workplace.
2: We exercise good recruitment practice and apply this equally to temporary, contract, interim, fixed term and part-time workers.
3: We will aim to deliver the highest standard of candidate experience, with ongoing communication during the recruitment process, including two-way feedback for all those interviewed.
4: We will offer and recommend flexible working arrangements and adaptive working practices, wherever possible, as a way of boosting inclusion and enhancing the attraction of talent.
5: We ask that those managing and delivering the recruitment process (whether internal Abacus staff or client businesses) work to recognised standards, undertake any relevant training/qualification, and commit to continuous development.
6: Our supply chain will deliver good recruitment practice throughout, including where different resourcing models, such as recruitment process outsourcing or vendor arrangements, are in place.
7: We will help to address youth employment through our recruitment procedures and making recommendations to our clients; for example, through the provision of apprenticeships and traineeships, and by working with recruitment organisations who have signed up to the REC’s Youth Employment Charter.
8: We will regularly review our recruitment procedures alongside feedback from candidates (those appointed and not appointed). We will keep up-to-date with new recruitment/resourcing approaches and adapt them as necessary.
