Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a core value for both syncreon as a company and for our individual team members throughout the world. We understand that we are members of our communities and must proactively create strong relationships and share what we have and what we know with others.
Our global team represents a variety of cultures, languages and needs. We encourage our associates to be personally active in their community and support local and charitable organizations. As a team, we share a commitment to improve our communities.
We integrate environmental considerations into our corporate activities and actively strive to meet high conservation standards in fulfilling our responsibilities as a good corporate citizen. In recent years, syncreon has been bringing environmental issues towards the core of its business. We are constantly evaluating our progress against goals to make sure we are on track, and, if not, to ask ourselves how we can make better progress. The principles of our environmental policy are adhered to at all sites with the continuous addition of ISO14001 certification to an ever increasing number of our global sites.
HEALTH & SAFETY
syncreon values the health and safety of our workforce, customers, and citizens of the communities in which we operate. Our vision is to create an injury-free workplace and a company culture where environmental excellence is second nature. syncreon continues to be committed to providing employees with an environment that is not harmful to their health and well-being.
Our global team represents a variety of cultures, languages, and needs. We encourage our associates to be personally active in their community and support local and charitable organizations. As a team, we share a commitment to improve our communities and in the organizations that we support.
From our start in 2007, syncreon has supported a variety of charitable activities. In 2013, we organized on a global scale to unite the efforts of our local teams and established a focus for our volunteer work. Some years we work as a whole to assist a specific cause, in other years, we work individually and in local teams with a common intention such as enriching children's lives or promoting education. In all of our efforts, we seek to create and sustain value in the organizations and communities that we support.
Our focus for 2018 is Access and Empowerment for People of All Abilities. Our global team represents a variety of cultures, languages and needs and we encourage our employees to be personally active in their community, support local and charitable organisations and for this to have a meaningful impact for all of the people involved.
For the past few years our focus has been on Children, Body and Mind. We have supported causes that fight disease, hunger and support the education of our children. In 2017 we expanded on the success we have had with this initiative and continue the enablement theme in 2018 to support and maximize the potential of individuals within our communities and help them overcome the obstacles they face.
