Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

At HSO we take responsibility for our social, economic and environmental impact. We are committed to making a difference – for our employees, our customers and our planet.

Carbon Neutral Organisation

We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the carbon footprint standard; an internationally recognised standard for demonstrating low carbon credentials as an organisation.

Diversity and Inclusion

HSO UK is committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity amongst our workforce. Our aim is that each employee feels respected and is valued, based upon their skills, performance and commitment.

It is the continuing policy of the Company to provide equal opportunity employment to all employees without regard to the actual or perceived protected characteristics.

Fair treatment

All employees are treated fairly and with respect.

Disability Confident Employer

HSO is a member of the UK Government’s Disability Confident scheme. This helps us at HSO:

  • tap into the huge pool of talent amongst disabled people, and recruit, retain and develop people with the skills we need
  • increase our understanding of disability and how to make the most of the opportunities provided by employing disabled people
  • remove barriers that might be preventing disabled people and those with long term health conditions from accessing employment with us
  • play our part in ensuring that disabled people have opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations

Inclusive hiring practices

Here at HSO we are continually looking to increase the diversity of our workforce and create an inclusive culture where everyone can succeed. We understand that traditional recruiting does not always allow individuals who are Neurodiverse to demonstrate their strengths and qualifications. If you would like to apply for a position at HSO but are concerned about the interviewing process, please contact our recruitment team and we will work with you to ensure you have the opportunity to showcase your talents.


Each year we like to give to a number of charities, whether that be giving time, money or skills to support them. We choose charities that are close to our employees’ hearts as well as charities that support the industries we work in. It is important to us that we cultivate a culture of charity and giving among our employees.

2021 Platinum Quality Mark Award from Charities Trust

HSO are proud to have achieved the the Platinum Payroll Giving Quality Mark Award for our commitment to Payroll Giving. It demonstrates our organisation’s commitment to Payroll Giving and corporate social responsibility.

It is also an opportunity to celebrate our employees and the huge amount of support that their donations provide to countless good causes.
