Social purpose, climate change and modern slavery are challenges all businesses face. In order to properly tackle these issues, we have a detailed framework of policies and procedures in place across handl Group. This covers our approach to human rights, health and safety, the environment and the community.
Protecting data and information
As we work with sensitive client data, we ensure all personal information is processed lawfully. We understand data protection is a crucial component to the success of our operations, so we make sure our businesses and clients feel confident when working with us and adhere to the principles of data protection as set out in our Data Protection Policies.
Managing environmental performance
With the current climate, we know it’s important to deliver our services to clients in an environmentally sustainable manner. We recognise the importance of being environmentally conscious of our brands’ carbon footprints contributing to climate change and the resources we use. That’s why we’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint and using resources wisely.
Our brands echo our commitment to the environment and ensure opportunities for working sustainably – such as recycling bins – are already in place. For the brands which don’t yet have the facilities in place to do this, plans are taking shape to ensure a more eco-friendly approach is taken in the future.
Health, safety and employee wellbeing
At handl, we want our employees to enjoy each and every working day. That’s why we believe that a safe working environment is not just the right thing to do, it’s also good for business, reducing sickness absence and increasing retention rates.
Each and every one of our portfolio brands has at least six dedicated, qualified First Aiders in place, on average. As we know health doesn’t just cover our employees’ physical body, we also have a dedicated Mental Health First Aider on site to ensure our employees’ mental well-being is cared for.
