Corporate Social Responsibility is not only an image-building strategy, but primarily an effort made every day in order to improve the living and working conditions, increase awareness of both producers and consumers, as well as to promote positive values and approaches in different areas important for the common good and balanced development. At KONTEKST we implement CSR in the following areas:
1. Pro-environmental initiatives
A socially responsible company cares for the environment in which it operates. It does not allow the objective pursued to jeopardize natural balance, but takes actions to avoid air and water pollution and reduce the amount of waste produced. To save the planet, at KONTEKST we use electronic solutions instead of paper documentation: we issue electronic invoices and certificates and offer certified translations with electronic signature.
2. Fostering diversity and culture at the workplace
A company that offers its employees not only stable employment, but also a friendly environment and acceptance has a better chance for a more dynamic development. What does fostering diversity and developing organizational culture at the workplace mean? We understand it as, among others:
– Respect for the fellow workers
– Anti-discrimination policy
– Intercultural openness
Promoting diversity and respect is in the very nature of KONTEKST. In October 2018, KONTEKST joined the group of Signatories of the Diversity Charter issued by the Responsible Business Forum
3. Commitment to charity actions
Willingness to help others, both locally and globally, promotes social responsibility and contributes to the development of the economy. Such endeavors strengthen bonds between the enterprise and the society. They also have influence on the team’s proactive attitude. Our company is a translation partner of the Responsible Business Forum and has been supporting the Polish Humanitarian Action for years now, providing translation services free of charge.
4. Customer relations
Last but not least, building customer relations on trust and respect is also a part of responsible business. A company that treats partners fairly is more likely to develop long and stable relations with them. At KONTEKST, partnership is the core value in contacts with our customers, as well as our team members.
