Sustainability for the Economy, for Society, and for the Environment
Sustainability is an integral part of how Strictly Staffing Inc. conducts its operations. As we strive to achieve our organizational goals, we do so in a manner that stimulates the local economy, promotes social equity, and reduces our environmental footprint so that we can both meet our current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Strictly Staffing Inc. aspires to meet and exceed governmental standards of sustainability in our operations. As a member of the Halifax Chamber of Commerce, Strictly Staffing Inc. shares in the Chamber's priorities established in September of 2009, focusing on Economic Development/Growth, People, Competitive Positioning, Health Care, and Sustainability. We have drawn on these common priorities in the creation of our own sustainability policy. Our goal is to become a local model of sustainability for society as we pursue our mission and play a proactive role in implementing sustainable practices in our community.
Locally owned businesses like ours reinvest in the local economy at a 60% higher rate than national chains. We do our part to support the Nova Scotia economy by seeking to form partnerships with local businesses and by working with local suppliers, contractors and sub-contractors where ever possible. Choosing Strictly Staffing as a Human Resources solution means supporting our local economy without compromising on service quality.
We make strong contributions to community development programs in Halifax, particularly in the staffing industry. For example, we maintain relationships with Nova Scotia’s Black Business Initiative, the Immigrant Settlement and Integration Services (ISIS) and the WorkBridge to assist those who may face barriers to employment. We also regularly support charities like Feed Nova Scotia and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
We assert a strong preference for environmentally friendly products and services when making purchasing decisions, when making puchasing recommendations to our clients, and when selecting project partners and subcontractors. Working with us is a "green" decision!
