Changing the world,
one step at a time
16th September 2014
Corporate social responsibility is about companies doing the right things. Committing to ethical business practices, contributing to economic development of our community & society, being the custodian of the environment, and helping improve the quality of life of the workforce and their families.
At BMC Software India, CSR is a deeply ingrained belief of doing business by contributing valuably. We work with non-profit organizations, and help with community projects (health/wellness), by partnering and bringing in sustainable and innovative CSR activities. Our aim is to make the most meaningful impact, or bring about a considerable positive change in our communities. Our goal is to give back to our society more than what we take from it.
Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". And we, at BMC India, dedicate our efforts towards the cause, one step at a time. Education ranks top in our initiatives. We are associated with many schools and colleges, supporting, sponsoring and helping with the educational needs of many underprivileged students.
The impact we aim at creating, is not about just the financial aid we, as an organization, provide. We bring in an important element of personalization. Most of the initiatives and activities that we undertake involve volunteering efforts from our workforce and their families. It is heartening to see the high levels of commitment that our people bring to the programmes. Their involvement and devotion to the society is incredible. Their concern for the environment is selfless.
We recently also signed up to help further the cause of Lila Poonawalla Foundation by signing up to sponsor the education of 10 underprivileged girls.
Our initiatives to serve the environment witnesses high participation in activities like planting saplings, and saving natural resources & energy by recycling and reducing wastage. Our new facility is a good example of sustainable business practices.
We look at CSR as a source of opportunity to bring in sustainable innovative ideas to help people, and enhance our environment for the future generations. We pride ourselves in helping bring ‘new life after dusk’ to Sakur Village with our innovative CSR.
To sum up, we believe in Corporate Social Relationship (rather than responsibility) where we help channelize resources to ensure that people around us become more productive. And the environment is protected in every possible way.
BMC employees contribute their best work to deliver the future of IT through transformative products and solutions that enable customer agility and efficiency. And it is wonderful to see them contribute effectively and walk an extra mile to contribute to the socio-economic development of the community at large. The inspiration we draw from our people, motivates us to give back to the society as much, equal or more, as we take from it.
