London, December 2023: Sainty Hird & Partners, the executive search and assessment firm, today announced that it has become a Certified B Corporation™ (B Corp™).
By becoming a B Corp™, Sainty Hird joins a global community of for-profit leaders pledging to use business as a force for good. Joining this community is testament to Sainty Hird’s commitment to accountability, transparency and being a leader in the executive search and assessment space.
The non-profit organization B Lab oversees the B Corp™ verification process, which evaluates a company's social and environmental performance. To attain Certified B Corporation™ status, businesses undergo a rigorous examination of how their operations and business model affect their employees, customers, communities, and the environment. Achieving a minimum verified score on the B Impact Assessment is a prerequisite for certification.
The processes to become a B Corp™ took Sainty Hird over a year, and its accreditation will be reviewed every three years to update its impact assessment and recertify as a B Corp™.
Rupert Mathieu, Partner at Sainty Hird, commented on the announcement:
“We are delighted to be an accredited B Corp™. This announcement reflects not only ourvinternal good practice but also our commitment to helping and finding leaders for all our clients committed to being forces for good including, for example, the appointment of a new Chairman for Enso, a finalist for the 2023 Earthshot Prize.
Throughout 2023 we have made a series of strategic announcements, including the roll-out of our board and executive assessment services, and the launch of our Technology & Digital practice.
We believe that as our service offering continues to grow, so too do our responsibilities to our colleagues, clients and the communities we operate in. This includes a responsibility to meet the highest standards of performance across a range of social and environmental metrics – and consistently being transparent and accountable for these.”
