Putting people first is the ethos we place at the heart of our operation and everything we do.
This value is embodied by each and every member of our team and one which guides our business strategy and the way we conduct ourselves.
For Centric, Putting People First means two key things:
- Equality and diversity in the workplace
- Enhancing the well-being of the people we work with.
Our commitment to putting people first influences everything we do as a business and the communities we work in.
By really getting to know the people we work with; be it clients, candidates or our employees, we believe we can unlock potential, build trust and deliver success.
Firstly, we believe everyone should be treated equally and be given the same set of opportunities regardless of their race, age, gender, sexuality, disability or anything else that might be discriminated against. As the first recruitment agency in Wales to join the Stonewall Cymru’s diversity champion’s programme we are passionate about achieving legal and social equality for lesbian, gay bisexual and trans people in the workplace.
We strive to remove all barriers that prevent people from securing employment and ensure that opportunities are made available to everyone.
We practise what we preach. After identifying a sharp rise in the number of young people in unemployment, we pledged to help young people into work. Centric has taken on almost 10 young people through the Jobs Growth Wales scheme. We have nurtured and honed their skills, placing them on the path towards a successful future in the recruitment industry.
Our focus on people, and our personalised approach means that we match candidates to the right jobs and in turn create happy, motivated and dedicated work forces for our clients.
As a business we are passionate about giving back and the staff at Centric are extremely dedicated and enthusiastic when it comes to raising money for a good cause.
Each year we champion a local, lesser known charity as we feel it is important to give back to the communities we work in. Throughout the year we organise numerous events dedicated to raising money for that cause, with many of our team taking on their own personal fundraising challenges in addition to the company ones.
We couldn’t be prouder of the efforts of the Centric team who will face multiple challenges in 2018 to raise as much as we can for Breast Cancer Care Cymru. Challenges will include regional 10K runs, a triathlon, tough mudder and more. You can follow our progress and donate through our Just Giving page here.
Some of our previous fundraising highlights include:
- Charity golf day in aid of Casey’s cause
- 55 mile cycle
- Running the Newport half marathon for The Sparkle Appeal
- Fundraising for Cerebra at prestigious awards ceremony.
