Staffing agencies are empowering businesses with sustainable hiring solutions and eco-friendly expertise.

“Now more than ever, it's important to focus on building a sustainability program.”

Jody Mousseau VP of Sustainability Development, Aquent

The rising focus on sustainability, encompassing environmental health, social equity, and economic equity for future generations, is reshaping businesses globally and opening up new avenues for staffing firms. This theme took center stage in a recent article in SIA's Staffing Stream titled “The Next Big Thing: Corporate Interest in Sustainability.” The piece references a LinkedIn report indicating a significant increase in the proportion of “green talent”—professionals skilled in sustainable practices or engaged in green jobs—from 2015 to 2021. The article includes commentary from Jody Mousseau, VP of Sustainability Development at Aquent, who underscores the urgency and financial incentives for companies embracing sustainability. Mousseau highlights factors such as the Inflation Reduction Act and growing investor emphasis on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) scores, which are propelling businesses toward sustainable practices. Additionally, the piece discusses Aquent's recent venture into sustainability-focused staffing solutions aimed at assisting companies in hiring professionals for diverse sustainability roles and initiatives. As businesses seek to navigate sustainability, there is a growing need for knowledgeable professionals. Mousseau advises firms to start by asking questions and understanding that sustainability is a new and evolving field for everyone.
