As part of SThree, Real participates in with a wide range of global CSR initiatives focused on ‘transforming lives through skills and work’. As specialist recruiters, we use our expertise, skills and networks to help people from diverse and underprivileged backgrounds.
With the launch of the SThree Foundation in November 2016, we’ve been focusing more specifically on getting bright young people into the STEM industries.
In December 2017, we reached our £1 million fundraising target for SOS Children’s Villages supporting 35 life-changing projects and touching the lives of over 3,000 people around the world. Within the APAC MENA region, we have a mission to support children to get the best in start of life for SOS Children's Villages in Manila, Philippines. We had a target to provide children to go to elementary school with the educational materials, supplies and travel that they need. All of these children were neglected or abandoned which resulted in them coming into the care of SOS Children's Village. To hit our sponsorship targets, various events and fun-raising campaigns were held across the region. This includes the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge, sharing sessions during client event, internal raffle and many others.
Locally, other CSR initiatives include a partnership with local organisations to run interview techniques and workshops that have role playing and CV writing included. In Singapore, we have committed to reduce our carbon footprint as an office through recycling campaigns.
Real is also proud to be part of a life changing industry and actively supports global initiatives such as World Health Days, helping to fundraise and raise awareness around key health topics alongside our partners within the life sciences industry.
