CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR) AT GENPACT IN Q2

When we talk about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at Genpact, we are describing both a mindset that injects socially responsible thinking into every aspect of our business, as well as a strategy for using our expertise and skills to create positive change in the communities that we are a part of.

All around the world, our people make this happen – through their commitment to Genpact values and volunteering for community development.

CSR is one of our core beliefs. Corporate Citizenship plays a critical role in shaping our company’s success. As we grow, we will harness the energy and talent of our employees and leverage our distinctive strengths to contribute to the economic, social and environmental benefit of the communities where we live and work, with special focus on developing employability.

2013 was crucial to our European CSR journey. We are dedicated to community development through our three pillars:

1. Employability: Training people to help them gain employment, which we believe is the most powerful way to create long term community impact.

2. Environment and Sustainability: Caring for the environment we live and work in.

3. Inclusion: Enabling inclusive growth, education, health & sustenance of under-privileged groups.

Our teams across the world contributed passionately through volunteering, payroll giving, donations and disaster relief support. Our Leaders drove this passion for CSR through personal example and active participation while constantly inspiring the people to do the same. And the most exciting part was that many of our clients engaged closely with us in our CSR programs, coming forward to support our efforts through resources and personal time.

Europe CSR results are a statement of our passion: $ 6,500 employee donations, 146 CSR events organized across sites, 11 528 volunteers involved in various campaigns.

 

2014 raised the bar higher, making Europe drive more initiatives:

• Education: Tutoring for Community Children, Mentoring for Single Parents, Trainings for NGOs, Back to School, Community Library

• Health: Blood Donation Campaign, Health Awareness & Ergonomics Seminars, No Tobacco Day, GenpActive (unique health program encouraging an active lifestyle)

• Inclusion: Children’s & Elders Day, Art Saves Life, Habitat for Humanity, Pet Food Drive, Food Bank

• Environment: World Water Day, Earth Day, Cleanup, Greening & Planting Campaigns, Fair Trade Campaign

The results for the first part of the year look promising: 90 events organized, 1660 volunteers, 8200 hours spend on contributing to our community and $ 3250 donated by employees. Plus our $ 100,000 worth corporate donations in Morocco to 8 NGOs comprising mainly of IT equipment and office furniture.

 

Genpact Europe has a 5 year Gold partnership with United Way, with 1,123,065.80 $ donated, over 160 projects financed, 101 volunteers directly involved in the selection of UW programs, more than 700 volunteering hours and a number of 35,000 lives changed.

And we continue the journey, as we are planning to beat our own records and end 2014 on top of the previous year. We always keep our hands on and big hearts open, as we truly believe that “Sharing is Caring”.
