Corporate Social Responsibility
Our Corporate Social Responsibility company policy outlines our efforts to give back to the world what we get out of it. We believe this is mandatory within our business to lead us to success and make us a brand of choice for both internal and external stakeholders. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) company policy refers to our responsibility toward our environment and surroundings both on physical and business terms.
At Amicus we believe we are one small component in a bigger machine. Our actions, no matter how small, allow us to work together as one to achieve the same goal of looking after our planet, communities and our colleagues. It’s integral to the function of our business to focus on our CSR to make Amicus an even better employer and a better service provider to our clients and candidates.
We want to be a responsible business that meets the highest standards of ethics, professionalism and awareness. Our CSR policy aligns with four major categories. Environmental, Philanthropic, Ethical and Economic Responsibility. We feel that these are the main pillars to leading a not only successful business but one that gives back and looks after those within and around it.
