We continue to ensure that our business practices, policies and activities contribute, as far as possible, to the sustainable and positive development of all of our clients and communities; whether local, national and international.

 

The four cornerstones of our of our corporate social responsibility are:

  • community engagement

  • employee relations and human rights

  • environmental practice

  • ethical conduct in business.

 

This mission statement for HMSL combines these elements into three parts:

 

  1. HMSL and Sustainability

  2. HMSL and its Staff

  3. HMSL and the Wider Community

 

Strategic benefits for HMSL include:

 

  • The recruitment and retention of staff who are increasingly empowered in their work and proud to work for HMSL

  • The enhancement of our external reputation as a respected employer

  • Assurance for business partners who want to engage with a responsible organisation

  • The continuation of our good relations with medical and nursing communities, plus continued recruitment of staff and students from those communities

  • Consolidation of our excellent ratings within our field of operation

  • Engagement with the local and national agendas for environmental action and carbon reduction in the medical and recruitment sectors, which will in turn improve our ‘green’ reputation and our placing in relevant league tables

  • Less easily measurable benefits, which come from inspiring and engaging our nursing communities by showcasing our work and by hosting debate and dialogue
