Windsor Group offers more than human resource services and recruitment solutions.

It’s called the Windsor Difference. We engage and collaborate with our partners across sectors to deliver an extensive social enterprise program, providing value to our clients and candidates.

Windsor Group is a ‘business with a conscience’, demonstrated by the support we offer individuals and ethical values-led businesses to achieve social good.

Our commitment to social impact means we help you to excel at what you do through our extensive social enterprise program. The purpose of this program is to build the capacity of both individuals and organisations by promoting skill development and knowledge sharing across industries. We engage and collaborate with peak bodies and our client partners to identify topics of interest and knowledge gaps. This consultation process informs the subject matter of our annual program. Our social enterprise program includes:

  • Professional development opportunities for staff.
  • Monthly networking lunch forum invitations to Chairs of Boards, CEOs, Senior Executives and HR Managers.
  • Peer group forums for staff and Executives at all levels.
  • Public forums on key topics of interest for different industries.

Windsor Group is making a difference through fostering knowledge insight and connections across people and organisations who are striving to deliver similar social outcomes.

Statement of Achievement: Social Enterprise

In May 2017, Windsor Group underwent an evaluation by Dr Lyn Alderman, Principal Evaluator. The purpose of this evaluation was to determine the extent to which Windsor Group achieved our ambition to re-invest profits into building the capacity of people and purpose-driven, socially-conscious organisations. A social enterprise is defined as an organisation that operates as a business with a significant focus on contributing to social good.

Our ambition has been realised based on the findings of the evaluation. The foundation of this achievement includes:

  • the re‑investment of Windsor Group’s profits into capacity building events,
  • ‘Charity of the Month’ promotions,
  • workplace giving
  • and a strong belief of staff in social good.

This evaluation recognises the work we have been doing at Windsor Group for a number of years. Our results for the first half of FY18 are displayed in the diagram.

Windsor Group is a member of Queensland Social Enterprise Council (QSEC).

Help bring epilepsy out of the shadows

Time/Date:   Tuesday 26 March

Location:      National

During March, join Epilepsy Queensland Patron Wally Lewis and thousands of other Queenslanders, businesses and schools to support Purple Day for Epilepsy.

Purple Day (26 March) is a highlight event of the national epilepsy awareness campaign throughout March.  It is an opportunity to have fun with all things purple, the internationally recognised colour for epilepsy, and at the same time help raise funds and increase understanding of one of the world’s most common serious brain disorders.

This year, Epilepsy Queensland hopes to raise $100,000, which represents $1 for every Queensland child and adult living with epilepsy.  Funds raised will help Epilepsy Queensland reach out to more people with epilepsy and their families to provide ongoing support, information and advocacy services.

To help achieve this target, people are encouraged to get involved by hosting purple themed fundraising events such as morning teas, buy or sell merchandise or collect donations. In addition, they can also raise funds to climb Brisbane’s Story Bridge on Purple Day.

Anyone can get involved by wearing purple on Purple Day and sharing a ‘purple selfie’ featuring one of the many purple illuminated landmarks across the State or at our Purple Day celebration event.

To get involved or for more information: visit and register online at www.epilepsyqueensland.com.au/purple-day, call 1300 852 853 or email purple@epilepsyqueensland.com.au.
