Proudly Announcing our B Corp Certification

The mustard team are wholeheartedly excited to announce our status as B Corp.

Officially joining the growing community of accredited B corporations across the world. Becoming one of 2000 businesses in the UK, with a shared vision for the future.

 

The rigorous process covers all areas of the business including Governance, Workers, Customers, Environment and Community. As a Bristol-based creative recruitment agency, we have painstakingly assessed our impact and are committed to providing a better future for not only our clients and employees but also our community. We’ll be returning to this impact report year-on-year to assess our impact and identify areas of improvement. Providing key insight into our practices, as we strive to hit our enhanced sustainability goals of net-zero by 2030, 20 years ahead of the UK government’s SME net-zero goals.

 

We’ve already levelled up our community commitments, from increased volunteering allowances to fundraising for our Charity of the Year, The Grand Appeal in aid of Bristol Children’s Hospital.

 

The B Corp certification provides businesses with comprehensive, credible, comparable impact standards to support economic systems change. Founded in 2006, to support businesses to lead the way towards a new, stakeholder-driven model.

 

Our Directors hope that this spotlight on the recruitment agency will encourage others in the sector to aim for more transparency and accountability.

 

“We’re delighted to become a B Corp, it’s been a long process, but a needed one. We’re continually striving for higher standards throughout the business. The whole team are extremely excited to be listed amongst like-minded businesses that are taking steps towards positive change.”

– Dave Madden, Director, mustard jobs
