In October 2017 the Cordant Group transformed into a social business putting people and communities before profits. This included a range of initiatives that were announced including capping wages for the highest earners at 20 times that of the lowest paid worker.
After launching as a social business five strategies were created to encompass how the Cordant Group operates. One of those strategies is to Promote Social Business. To support this Cordant Cleaning has partnered with a number of businesses including:
Forward - Blue Sky
Blue Sky is all about finding work for ex-offenders. Having a job or apprenticeship can help break the cycle of re-offending and addiction. A job can bring purpose, a connection to the community and independence. Cordant Cleaning work with Blue Sky to find cleaning positions they can work in.
Becoming Disability Confident
Disability Confident is a scheme that is designed to help businesses recruit and retain disabled people and people with health conditions for their skills and talent. Cordant Cleaning is part of this scheme and looks to provide working opportunities for people with disabilities.
Mencap is the leading voice of learning disability. Everything they do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers. Cordant Cleaning is proud to work with MENCAP and help find work for people with learning disabilities.
