Corporate Social Responsibility
Sustainability is central to our business practice
At arvato we seek to provide value to not only our customers but also the society at large by utilization of our core competencies in areas where we can meaningfully and effectively help to cope with challenges in our social environment. In these efforts, we systematically focus on selected topics that stand in close relationship with our areas of business.
Our mission is to encourage social change. Together with partners from all sectors of society, we seek to identify challenges and problems in the community at an early stage, and develop exemplary solutions.
As a decentralized organization, arvato firmly believes that the people on the ground, in a specific country and a specific market, know best what is good for their business and their employees – as well as what is good for the society in which they build and operate their businesses. We at India, hence firmly believe that educational initiatives are of immense important to drive our growth, our economy, our country through a public-private partnership route.
Education is a big enabler towards creation of modern self-sufficient economies. We firmly believe that while education should be spread at the grassroot level but should also enable economic empowerment of under-privileged sections of the society. Hence the objective is to have people from this section contribute as skilled workers thereby making a positive contribution to the competitive advantage which India today carries as a substantial provider of high quality skilled labour-pool.
Enabling young Indians towards economic independence
One of the key initiatives arvato has undertaken in this field is setting up a Community Technology Center (CTC) in collaboration with one of our technology clients with the aim of helping underprivileged members of society gain access to electronic media. arvato India today provides computer-based training programs covering basic to advanced level technology applications at its premises in Gurgaon. The program also looks at encouraging internal skill development by way of certification and growth path towards higher training tiers. At the end of the program, each qualifying student also receives a merit Certificate.
For this endeavour, arvato India has also teamed up with various non-governmental organizations in the Delhi/NCR region which are involved in the areas of workforce development and learning from a long time. The initiative was successfully launched with the help of internal volunteers from arvato India. All the trainers go through an internal selection process to ascertain their suitability as instructors.
