Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

SingularLogic is committed to putting in place policies, procedures and practices to promote and foster corporate social responsibility. For us, corporate social responsibility equates to actions that dynamically support and advance our contribution in the following fields:

  • Society
    • Academic Community
    • Volunteering & Community Contribution 
    • Social Community 
  • Employees 
  • Environment

By implementing consistent practices and building lasting partnerships, SingularLogic seeks to provide support for important social activities and initiatives, promote best social practices and provide for vulnerable social groups.

Academic community

We aim to make young people more familiar with new technologies and to facilitate their access to the knowledge society. This is achieved by reinforcing the work done by educators through long-lasting and effective synergies and by providing direct support to the community of pupils and students through actions that promulgate their knowledge of, and connection to the modern labour market.

SingularLogic's contribution to the Academic Society:

  • Long-lasting partnership with the liaison offices of most academic institutions in the country to arrange student work placements within SingularLogic Group companies. Furthermore, each year we allow the very best students to stay on with the Company under an employment contract. For more information, see here !
  • Offer free, cutting-edge software to educational institutions and foundations.
  • Grant second-hand hardware and office equipment to primary and secondary schools.
  • Set up student study visits to SingularLogic’s facilities to allow them to get to know what we do, learn about our business activities and meet our specialist staff.
  • Participate every year in prestigious Career Days events organised by academic Institutions and student organisations in Athens and Thessaloniki.
  • Reinforce activities that promote youth entrepreneurship and pupils' innovation (i.e. we sponsored the "Call to Innovation" action by TedxAcademy, supported the participation of the "Kosteas Geitonas" private school in the "Virtual Business" competition of Junior Achievement Greece, sponsored the team of the ANATOLIA college for the "F1 in Schools" technology competition, and many more).

 

Volunteering & Social Contribution

By organising activities and supporting social initiatives, we promote the spirit and the importance of volunteerism and social contribution! We also consistently contribute to society by supporting charitable and non-profit organisations as a practical demonstration of our concern for our fellow citizens in need.

SingularLogic initiatives for Volunteerism and the Society include the following:

  • Since 1999, we have been collaborating with a mobile blood donation unit from the Amalia Fleming Hospital with our own blood bank in order to substantially support our people and their families in times of hardship. Twice a year, we are donating blood to this blood bank by organising the so-called "Blood Donation days" at the Company venues.
  • Collect basic commodities for destitute people, in collaboration with institutions and organisations providing social support.
  • Provide financial support to agencies and foundations (e.g. the Panhellenic Anti-Cancer Society, Unicef etc.)

  • We set up a Christmas "SingularLogic Love Buffet" in order to raise money for the financial support of NGOs / agencies chosen by our own people!
