This is our Hays story, join us and start yours
Our purpose at Hays is to create opportunities and improve the lives of our employees and the communities in which we work.
This is who we are at Hays, where we inspire our people to do the right thing and shape the world of work.
Opportunity For All
Equity Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) is integral to all we do at Hays. We believe that a culture built on trust, respect, equity and inclusivity will enable us to live our values, achieve our ambitions and deliver our purpose. Not only is it the right thing to do, but it is the right thing for people’s careers and for our business. Equity is the foundation of everything we believe in - giving everyone the same opportunities allows us all to develop our full potential. We believe that diversity of thought, perspective and belief brings about innovation and creativity in the workplace. We tie it all together with a culture based on inclusivity, creating an environment where people feel they belong, and every voice is heard.
Live Well Work Well
We believe there is no limit to what people can achieve when there is a harmony between work and home. When we live well, we work well. We create an environment to support everyone to balance the pressures of work and life. We recognise that life events create different demands for each of us. Our flexible and agile work practices and our parental benefits are just some of the wellbeing initiatives in place to ensure that you are fully supported through your work/life journey.
We're committed to making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. Hays Helps encourages you to spend time volunteering and fund raising to make a difference. The aim is to improve the life and work prospects of people who may not have the same opportunities as others. We also support and encourage activity that protects the environment and promotes sustainability.
Our Net Zero pledge
We believe that the drive towards a more sustainable, low-carbon way of life to tackle climate change is vital. We want to be part of the solution to climate change globally and recognise the significant opportunities which ‘Green’ and ‘Sustainable’ economies present. That’s why we have made a global commitment and pledged to become ‘Net Zero’ in terms of carbon emissions.
Moments that Matter
At Hays, we believe that the right job can transform a person's life, and the right person can transform a business. This is the 'magic' of recruiting. These are moments that matter and we are dedicated to helping our candidates and clients make the right choices, for now and for the future.
Change in the world of work is a constant. Our mission to be lifelong partners for our clients and candidates and our purpose to create opportunities for everyone, require us to stay one step ahead. This means being bold, agile and open to ideas and change. We constantly question, challenge and seek to improve our ways of working and the tools we use every day.
We embrace careers without boundaries by creating opportunities for high performing individuals to develop their careers globally. Our mobility program offers the flexibility for you to advance your career in any one of our 250+ offices worldwide. We actively encourage movement and change in your career. Start your career in Singapore then move to Sydney; become a Manager in Tokyo and then a Business Director in Toronto; anything is possible.
A Learning Culture
Our purpose is to create opportunities; we believe foremost in empowering our own people. To help you realise your potential, our promise is to provide an open platform for continuous learning and acquisition of new skills through our extensive blended learning, coaching and training. We pair senior leaders with aspiring talent on mentoring programmes. We engage external experts to coach our top executives. We personalize coaching for our people leaders to learn the art of management. We put you at the centre of your own learning and let you build a career based on your self-development.
We believe your strong sales drive, commitment to our clients and candidates and the results you deliver should be celebrated. We provide a rich and diverse reward programme that allows us to recognise all your achievements. We create a purpose-driven work environment with total transparency; our uncapped commission scheme, fast track promotion contracts, competitive incentives and loyalty benefits are just some of the ways in which we reward and recognise your success.
