Introducing People & Planet

Social responsibility is important to us. Whether we are helping people find their dream job or supporting businesses by closing their skills gap and harnessing the power of technology, we aim to make a positive difference in the world.

It’s also important to us that we support every member of our workforce in being their authentic selves and progressing in their chosen career path at Tenth Revolution Group. We strive to create a workplace where all our employees can contribute towards protecting the planet and helping their local communities.
To ensure we can fulfil this mission, we developed People & Planet in 2023 to bring together our pre-existing Diversity Matters, Wellbeing Matters and Sustainability Matters programs. This also includes our TRG Cares initiative which is focused specifically on giving back to the community and supporting charitable causes.
Each pillar of People & Planet is characterized by its own identity and strategy, but by consolidating these programs, we have sharpened our focus towards meeting our common goals and;
