Corporate social responsibility

Since our company’s inception, s.com has been a leader committed to being a great place to work, a thoughtful steward of the environment and a caring citizen in the communities where we live and work.

We are passionate about sustainability, connecting people and career opportunities, and improving the quality of life for those we employ. We also understand that our clients wish to do business with companies that share their values and demonstrate good practices in managing their environmental and social impacts.

While s.com will continue to evolve the way we operate, we remain resolute to the corporate and social commitments made to our clients, associates and world in which we operate. These commitments focus on Human Resources, Health and Safety, Facilities and the Environment, and Business Continuity.

Inclusion and diversity

At s.com, we actively encourage diversity in the workplace and are proud to employ people from a variety of social and ethnic groups throughout our business. We provide our employees and associates a work environment free from discrimination related to sex, gender, race, religion, age, ethnic or national origin, disability or any other inappropriate base.

As part of this commitment, our uniform hiring practices ensure that we adhere to all EEOC regulation and minimum age requirements and we include diversity, harassment and ethics training as part of our new hire on-boarding.

Health and safety

S.com strives to provide a safe and healthy working environment for our employees and the associates we place on assignment. In order to provide good workplaces for our people, we fully comply with all health and safety legislation, regularly reviewing our policies to ensure that they reflect and legislative changes.

We also expect our clients to align with this approach. To further ensure a healthy and safe environment, we encourage a proactive and positive attitude regarding safety and injury prevention.


Facilities and the environment

Our environmental impact as a people-based organisation, with no manufacturing facilities and limited transportation requirements, is minimal. We are, however, committed to following best practices in the day-to-day conduct of our business, including the use of sustainable and recyclable materials wherever possible, establishing recycling programs in all facilities and automating manual processes that have allowed us to greatly reduce paper consumption.

Efforts allowing us to reduce our carbon footprint include establishing “power down,” energy saving policies for electrical and computer equipment, installing motion-activated light switches for offices and conference rooms, and embracing telecommuting for logical areas of the company.
