As a global leader in customer management, we have a responsibility to invest our talent and resources by supporting our communities’ capacity to build a stable, skilled, and healthy society. Our multinational footprint provides an incredible opportunity to reach out to the communities in which we operate. Through our Social Responsibility program, we address issues that are specific to local needs and relevant to our business. We build lasting community partnerships with groups that support the following:
We have resources dedicated to the Convergys Community Action Network (CAN). The mission of Convergys CAN is to connect our company’s capabilities with the talents and skills of our colleagues in ways that enhance the quality of life in the communities where we live and work. Each year, funds are allocated to our sites to support our social responsibility platform. We encourage and provide opportunities for volunteerism at all levels of the organization. Convergys CAN supports local programs in every country in which we operate.
To further demonstrate our commitment to Social Responsibility, Convergys voluntarily sought and achieved Verego Social Responsibility Standard Certification. Verego, an independent third party assessor that ensures the effective management of corporate responsibilities initiatives, thoroughly evaluated our operations, physical sites and policies against world renowned standards to award us enterprise wide certification in Leadership, Ethics, People, Community and Environment, a total of 5 out of 5 full certification awards.
