Our motto at the Allére Group is that “we make it our business to know your business.”
To us, that means relationships are everything.
Every good relationship is founded on trust, credibility, and care, and our business makes maintaining these strong, positive relationships our highest responsibility. Not only do our clients feel these values in our partnerships, but so do our employees, suppliers, and community. The Allére Group recognizes its role as a trusted part of the economy, our society, and this world. We aim to use our position to add human benefit to this planet, as well as operational excellence for our clients.
The United Nations SDGs provide a high-level overview on the pressing issues that are facing the global community. We at The Allére Group use high-level goals like these as well as our personal touchpoints with our community to set our sustainability and diversity priorities. We’ve listed some choice goals and initiatives that we’re actively doing our part in:
SDG 5 – Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
We at The Allére Group pride ourselves on being a WBENC certified business. We regard this status as a recognition of our role as leaders for women in business. We bring representation to the table in with our clients, helping them to meet their gender parity goals. We also take an inclusive and holistic look at recruiting to actively break down barriers that historically have held women back. We’re proud to say that half of our team, and most of our leadership, is female. We continue to use our trusted position in the economy to create positive change.
SDG 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth
As a staffing firm, issues of work are close to heart. We believe that finding the right fit is the most important part of our service; worker wellbeing as well as company culture are downstream from these efforts. We hold a trusted position to source, screen, and select people our clients may want to work with. We strive to eliminate any biases that may persist in our field; we try to open doors for people as much as we can and in so doing, unlock opportunity for our clients. This means being sensitive to the issues of workers from all age, racial, gender, sexual, socio-economic, immigration, and disability statuses. We work every day to do better in learning about and responding to the changing needs of workers.
SDG 13 – Climate Action
Being a trusted part of the economy, The Allére Group can’t ignore one of the most pressing issues of our time: climate change. Many of our clients have set goals to reduce their impact on the planet, and we aim to be a partner they can rely on in this space. We strive to be low impact in our operations wherever possible. Emissions and resource-use have been scaled down immensely already and we are looking at ways to reduce further. We have realized that the most important part of our efforts has been acting as leaders and guides for overcoming the inertia to change. We try to adopt those roles in our relationships with workers and suppliers to be a change-maker in our community.
We have identified the following priorities as the ways we can make the most impact on the SDG’s we have targeted as an organization:
• Reduce office space, commuting, and paper usage
• Provide work arrangements that work for people
• Maintain our excellent diversity
• Maintain our WBENC status
