Boyden Interim Management is committed to operating its core business in a socially responsible way. Our goal is to manage the executive search process to benefit our clients -- with an eye to the society at large.
Over the coming months Boyden will be assessing all of our processes; by listening to employees, candidates, clients, and stakeholders we can start to understand the issues most important to them, and their expectations for Boyden's response. In this way we can design programmes and goals in a systematic and transparent fashion that counts the company and clients as a team.
As our understanding grows, we can refine our recommendations for consultation and implementation of new Corporate Responsibility mandates.
Our leadership position in the global community gives us a distinct perspective on responsible stewardship of the world. Due to our unique structure, we are able to commit to establishing a presence in up-and-coming communities -- an investment in making a positive impact on both business and the environment.
In addition to including environmental awareness in our business philosophy, we have made concrete changes in the way we work every day. We understand the case for responsible and ethical purchasing, and work with each local Boyden office to follow new guidelines. Boyden staff have always supported and volunteered with local charities, arts and activities in each community, and are proud of their worthwhile contributions.
