"One of the things I love most about Sanderson is that we are a business built on integrity. Our people, service and decision making demonstrate this every day and our commitment to do the right thing extends to the approach we take to our environmental impact. This is why we were one of the first recruitment companies in the UK to be approved and signed up to the Science Based Targets initiative.”

Fast Payer Awards

In 2023, we were proud to have been awarded the Fast Payers Award from Good Business Pays CIC.

This means that we’re in the top 6% of reporting companies to pay suppliers in 27 days or less.

Given how turbulent the business world has been in the last few years, Sanderson takes immense pride in continuing to be included in the Fast Payer Awards. Our suppliers are integral to our continued success, and we must ensure that we treat them as genuine business partners by paying purchase invoices on time, every time.”
