Empower Champions are responsible for helping Empower Translate to fulfil its commitments in the Market Research Society inclusion and net zero pledges, of which Empower is a founding signatory.

The ‘champion’ roles are an addendum to both staff members’ existing role and come with additional remuneration.

Ruth Partington, chief executive at Empower Translate, said: “Our team leapt at the opportunity to actualise our commitment to building a better world for ourselves and others, and I am immensely proud of them.

“I believe company size is irrelevant when it comes to the MRS pledges; it’s about agility of approach. We decided on a job description addendum to ensure that our team have the space, resources and accountability to fully commit to tangible goals.”
