Corporate Social Responsibility, or CSR, helps many companies drive positive change and create healthy workplace cultures.
It’s little wonder organizations across the globe are embracing their role as responsible corporate citizens. Many of them continue to see the benefits of developing robust CSR programs and policies that help contribute to the betterment of the world and their employees.
For its part, Kyndryl is committed to driving progress in three community engagement areas: future forward education, inclusive economy and climate action.
Here, Pam Hacker, Kyndryl’s new Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility, talks about the importance of CSR initiatives on a global and local level.
CSR can encompass many things. What are Kyndryl’s CSR focus areas?
Hacker: Our global CSR strategy is built on how we show up and make an impact in the 60 countries where we operate — and how our employees are driving progress in the communities where they live and work. Having such a massive global footprint means we have a huge opportunity to usher in positive change. A large part of my role is to ensure that Kyndryl’s social impact is not only connected throughout all countries but also connects back to our three social impact areas of future forward education, which supports equitable access to student-centered and technology-enabled education; inclusive economy, which focuses on investing in bold ideas that build a representative economy in which all individuals and communities participate in and benefit; and climate action, our commitment to mitigating the impacts of climate change.
