What we do

What we do

We are the largest and most successful recruitment business globally.

At Hays we match thousands of the right candidates to the right jobs every single day across more than 20 different industry specialisms.

We operate across private, government and semi-government sectors. Our recruitment teams are backed by equally talented human resources, information technology, marketing, legal, compliance and finance teams.

Our role as recruiting experts

All our professionally trained recruiting experts focus on an industry specialism. They become experts in their field; knowing the market and roles available, the leading companies, the skills required and the key people involved in the recruitment process.

Our consultants work in close partnership with senior decision makers to understand their client’s needs and deliver an outstanding recruitment service. These relationships and those they develop with their candidates are vital to a consultant’s personal success, and the success of our business.

About Hays - How we do it

How we do it

We have developed and are deploying an improved model, one which we call Find & Engage. This takes the best recruitment practices and candidate relationships our consultants have developed over many years, and combines them with new technology and data science techniques available today to ensure we find the best candidates for any given role.

This approach puts the relationship back at the heart of recruitment, but uses digital technology, machine learning and data science to operate on a massive scale that has not previously been possible.

How we do it

ED&I extended

Our Equity, Diversity & Inclusion journey

As a leading voice in the world of work, we drive change with our customers and their own ED&I targets and journeys every day. We know that this change starts with us and we are committed to ensuring that all opportunities are equal, no matter the gender, race or background of an individual. As part of this process, we have outlined Our Promise around our shared beliefs, commitments as a company to ED&I initiatives and the actions that we will take to ensure that everyone at Hays feels able to bring their whole selves to work and flourish with us.

Our promise

Our Beliefs

We believe that diversity must be evident across all levels of our business and reflect the markets and communities we serve. We need a culture built on trust, respect, equality and inclusivity so that we can live our values, achieve our ambitions and deliver our purpose - and know that we must implement changes where appropriate, that make significant and lasting change so to deliver our promise.

Our Commitment

We will support equity, diversity and inclusion in all its forms, whether this is in attracting talent to join Hays or in realising potential and progression opportunities within the business. We will encourage people to speak up and speak out so that all voices are heard and be open to learning from these opinions. Finally, we will commit to influencing our customers, both in creating opportunities and improving lives in all that we do and in supporting our clients, suppliers and partners to deliver on their own Equity, Diversity and Inclusion ambitions

Our Actions

In FY21 we will engage third-party experts to assess whether the routes to ‘getting in’ and ‘getting on’ in Hays are truly fair, balanced and inclusive, share these results with our staff, and commit to delivering the changes required to realise our promises in conjunction with our Global and regional D&I councils. We will build upon the introduction of inclusive recruitment and unconscious bias training in our own recruitment practices and continue to improve lives in the charitable endeavours we undertake each year as Hays staff.
