More on ESG & CSR
Our ESG Mission
At HSO, we are fully committed to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the principles of the UN Global Compact and are guided by the applicable sustainability and ESG reporting standards and frameworks to achieve our goals.
1. Taking care of our people
Our talented employees are our greatest asset working in an exciting era of transformation to improve clients’ results. We take pride in providing flexible working arrangements where we team flexibly via a collaborative hybrid working model for purposeful working relationships
Our core global values are collaborative, entrepreneurial, ever evolving and value driven. We actively promote and endorse continuous learning and professional development through HSO Academy alongside ongoing training, mentoring and support to optimize our team members’ personal and professional growth and wellbeing.
Everyone at HSO has a genuine sense of empowerment where we are large enough to serve, but small enough to care.
Diversity & Inclusion
At HSO we are proud that our workforce is a growing dynamic, unique global community that is quality and performance driven. We are a global community of over 2,500 diverse individuals made up of 43 nationalities, 23 languages and spread across 30 countries which speaks to our commitment to be a fully diverse and inclusive employer.
Ultimately, our success is driven by the individual quality of the talent we work with to perform in their roles and deliver real value and performance for our clients. This is what makes HSO an authentic equal opportunity employer and only what we benchmark against when we are recruiting new talent.
HSO supports many community initiatives, driven by teams across our country organizations.
