CSR/Sustainability - Tangent has a strong and positive story to tell about its CSR initiatives but we were delighted to receive the external measure of our Policies, Procedures & Activities through the Silver award we received from Ecovadis towards the end of 2015. Much of what we have built up around CSR follows the tenets (see below) of the UNGC but we had not formally signed up to join the UNGC movement.- this we have now done and are pleased to include the Commitment Letter from Simon Dear, our CEO stating our commitment.

Tangent feature again in the Recruiter Magazines Hot 100

According to Recruiter magazine the Hot 100 List is a measure of performance and so to be recognised in the top 100 in a UK industry sector that has about 20,000 competing firms is particularly satisfying.
