As pioneers in the recruitment and facilities space, Cordant's industry leading services allow us to take care of people and property so clients can focus on their core business. We’re about more than a service transaction - we’re about helping thousands of people to live good lives. In 2017, we took the natural next and became a social business focused on building a stronger society. We're proud to release our first Social Impact report which showcases how we're welcoming a new era of positive impact, shared values and enhanced cooperation.
