Balancing Profit with Purpose

Purpose continues to drive how we think and act as a business at Xander. To enshrine this commitment, we are currently processing our application to become a B Corporation, which means we will be legally required to set DE&I goals and annually report our progress.

Our Journey to Change

We have identified a series of areas where we pledge to be more diverse and inclusive in how we recruit, train and embed talent. We’ve curated a list of goals to hold us to account, some of which we have already achieved. However, we recognise that our journey to create meaningful change takes time, and we aim to meet these goals by 2024.

Our partners

To achieve the change that we want society to reflect, our mission is rooted in the communities that we serve. We’ve partnered with several charities and social enterprise projects, which our Xander Associates play a major role in supporting these initiatives, so that we can continue to eradicate all forms of discrimination.

“Lots of companies talk about making a difference, but few build it so deliberately into the core of their organisation. Xander are focused on changing the employment landscape for individuals with disabilities, and their dedicated support for these important social enterprises will allow us to drive change across society. Thank you for standing up and making this happen.”
