What we stand for

Our values
During its long history, Macmillan Education has been concerned to build a reputation for decency and integrity and to preserve a strong ethical code. Currently, we are working towards achieving the additional environmental standards set out in the UN Global Compact 2006 and are committed to continue aligning our operations and strategies with the ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.

Current objectives

  • To build a truly diverse and culturally sensitive workforce by encouraging short- and long-term job mobility between our international companies based on talent and merit.
  • To encourage staff retention from diverse backgrounds at both entry level and in management positions.
  • To continue becoming a carbon neutral group of companies.
  • To encourage and work with our staff and suppliers to uphold the ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour relations, the environment and anti-corruption as set out in the UN Global Compact 2006.
  • To work with governments and educational institutions around the world to promote education for all.
