Vocacio is a Bristol-based business that has reinvented the way traditional recruitment is done.  

They are paving the future of talent attraction by creating engaging job descriptions using video which are shared with a top network of candidates. Vocacio then manage large volumes of applications & host initial interviews using video.

By removing the need for in-person interviews, they are doing their bit to lower the carbon footprint of a very resource-intensive process. To learn more about how Vocacio are harnessing technology and innovation to drive their deep engagement with sustainability, we spoke with Saskia Horne, Office Manager.

The Context: a business that needed help to understand their carbon impact 

Our vision at Vocacio is to build a ‘people-over-profit’ recruitment business, with sustainability at its core. We always want to do our bit to protect our planet, ensure we do some good in the world and work towards being net zero.  

One of our current, main goals is to become B Corp certified.  To achieve our ambitions, we need to have a strong understanding of what our current impact looks like and where we could improve. Not only that, we need to have robust data at our fingertips to use for various reporting purposes. 

The Challenge they faced: how to get accurate and robust data to support key reporting needs

As we set out on our environmental sustainability journey, we initially didn’t have a clear way of understanding our emissions problem areas, and we didn’t have the manpower to invest in this exercise nor the money to buy in consultants to help. As a result, we couldn’t easily understand what kind of environmental impact we were having. 

As one of our main focus areas is becoming B Corp certified, we need to be able to report on various areas of impact with robust data and use it to make targets for reduction.  It was hard for us to justify the business cost of bringing in consultants to help with this application.

The Spherics solution: Quick, smart and simple 

At Vocacio we use Xero for our accounting, so the integration with Spherics was really easy. Within a few minutes we had our carbon footprint report. This provides us with simple metrics and analytics that we use for our reporting and measurement needs.  

Spherics does the heavy lifting for you, simplifying the process, which allows us to make informed decisions with confidence.

Spherics turns out to be thousands of pounds cheaper than a consultant & the reports are real time, so they update with each business decision we make, empowering us to make informed, best practice decisions around our operations. 

The Results: A trusted carbon footprint to support B Corp certification

Spherics helps Vocacio measure their carbon impact and make informed, evidence-based decisions around sustainability. It helps us have clearer discussions with our board whilst also inspiring our clients and suppliers to look more deeply at their own impact.

The metrics that Spherics provides us with also makes our B Corp reporting so much simpler, helping us on our journey to becoming officially certified.

Finding Spherics has allowed us to be one step closer to our goals.
