OUR CSR COMMITMENTS
A word from the Chairman
« At Grant Alexander, we are all committed to the companies and leaders we support. All of us are driven by the same conviction that our role is both economic and social. By helping companies and their leaders develop their performance on both fronts, we are humbly taking action… to build a future, a society that we fervently hope is more responsible and sustainable.
This social and ethical approach is part of our DNA and our values. We live it on a daily basis, in our practices but also in our choices of individual and collective commitment.
Our Lucie 26000 certification is very important for the whole group. It gives concrete form and structure to our social, societal and environmental approach and confirms our desire to take concrete action to become more responsible.
Together, let’s commit ourselves with enthusiasm to build tomorrow! »
The company committed itself to a certification process at the end of 2020. It mobilised its internal and external stakeholders to work on the principles of action on which to progress. After an on-site audit by RSEVAL, the independent certification committee composed of CSR experts awarded Grant Alexander the Lucie 26000 label in November 2021!
Lucie 26000 label
The reference label for CSR in France, it’s aligned with the international standard for social responsibility (CSR), ISO 26000.
With this label, Grant Alexander is taking a genuine process to respecting all its stakeholders (clients, employees, suppliers, partners, etc.) in accordance with the principles of sustainable development, and of continuous improvement, which is structuring and demanding for the entire group, in order to become more responsible.
And to lead this strong commitment to CSR and ensure its proper development, the group has appointed Léa Suarez-Baylac, Quality/CSR Manager and DPO. She will lead the 3-year progress plan, covering 50 commitments, around 7 central themes:
- Responsible governance and transparency
- Respect for individuals
- Quality of life at work
- Protection of the environment
- Protection of ethical practices
- Responsible products and services
- Commitment to the public interest
This CSR approach is at the heart of our corporate project, and our team has been committed for several years to various initiatives on the different social, environmental and ethical aspects.
We are an active member of Syntec Conseil in the Recruitment, Coaching and Outplacement, SD/CSR and Promotion and Communication commissions (on the gender equality aspect), to contribute to the development of our professions and practices.
All of our consultants are signatories of Responsible Recruitment Charter of the Syntec Conseil. (in french only)
In order to involve our external stakeholders, suppliers and service providers, to foster a framework of mutual trust, and to commit ourselves collectively to a continuous improvement process, we have drawn up a Responsible Purchasing Charter.
We are also an active member of “France Qualité”, within the working group on relational quality, and contributed, in 2020, to the association’s white paper on the “onboarding” chapter…
Since 2020, we have chosen to partner with the Professional Women’s Network (PWN), an international movement of women executives and managers working for gender equality.
Finally, since 2015, we have been a partner of an HR Think Tank, “le Cercle du Leadership”. This is a privileged place for sharing and collective reflection between leaders of large companies, and its vocation is to promote a humanist vision and innovative actions in the field of leadership.
Grant Alexander has participated since its inception in the “Opération Coup de Pouce” of Syntec Conseil’s Recruitment Committee, which offers executives looking for work a week’s worth of time to talk with headhunting consultants in order to motivate them and help them reposition themselves. This operation has been acclaimed by the consultants, who are happy to give their time for this great civic action.
Since 2019, we have been supporting the endowment fund “La Maison des Bien Aimés”, which fights against sickle cell disease in Togo, by participating in actions in the field and in the effort to raise awareness in France around this disease.
Grant Alexander has changed its practices and customs in order to act, at its level, on the environmental dimension, in favor of sustainable development. Initiatives have been carried out in our Paris offices, but also in the regions, particularly in Lyon, with the introduction of recycling and reuse of our waste by Elise, and in Paris with Lemon Tri.
