Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) Program 2021
T-Systems in the UK wants to be the company of choice for customers seeking a socially and environmentally responsible technology partner with leading Cloud-based services, mobility solutions, and secure intelligent networks. It also aims to attract employees seeking a professional and respectful environment to fulfil their career ambitions. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) continue to be a part of our overall employee engagement strategy and we now collaborate closely with Nordics to move toward a joined-up view and synergies.
In 2021, we continued to focus on the following activities:
Social & Community Engagement
We are continuing with the not-for-profit “giving something back” strategy which encourages all staff to take paid time off work to carry out not-for-profit activities.
Low Carbon Society
A team made up of different departments at T-Systems UK has championed new ways of working to help reduce the time and energy spent travelling to and from work. The aim is to “work smart” and use collaboration platforms and tools to reduce travel, our carbon footprint, and costs. We have reduced our office footprint in Glasgow and we are now occupying Regus-type accommodation in Glasgow and Manchester. As part of our MIS-strategy we will be consolidating our datacenters into Germany and reducing our infrastructure footprint in the UK by 2024.
In 2021, we continued to communicate the benefits of the Badges recognition platform. This is a way for employees to give positive feedback and appreciation. It makes recognition available to all employees throughout the UK and internationally.
Every month, all the Badges are compiled into a single list and the Leadership Team picks the three top achievers to receive a monetary Magenta Award.
We have consistently had weekly updates promoting the “stay safe” campaign in relation to the COVID-19 epidemic.
COVID-19 safe working space
So as to ensure safe workplaces for our employees during COVID-19, we have encouraged people to work from home and provided the relevant IT equipment including screens. Travel has been reduced as all engagements are done through online platforms. In relation to those wanting to work in the office – the offices have been made COVID-safe with designated seating areas (in accordance with government regulations), including use of multiple cleaning and sanitizing solutions and products, one-way entry and exit systems, and a weekly deep clean. These measures ensured that the wellbeing of the employees was achieved while maintaining productivity. We have introduced an office log system with our Security Officer, so we have a record of all those entering T-Systems premises. Employees are required to perform a COVID-19 lateral flow test prior to attendance, which is logged on the NHS App .
