OSF Digital helped create the OSF Digital Foundation (also known as the OSF Association) in Romania in 2020.
The OSF Digital Foundation operates independently from OSF Digital and contributes to various charitable, cultural, and educational causes in the communities where OSF also operates. Through this philanthropic organization associated with OSF, OSF employees have an organization to partner with to help leave a positive impact on those around us.
OSF Digital is a close-knit team. We have many colleagues for whom Ukraine is home. Since the beginning of the armed conflict in Ukraine, we have partnered with the OSF Digital Foundation to focus efforts on taking care of OSF colleagues and keeping them out of harm’s way.
In addition to the OSF Digital Foundation, OSF Digital established an OSF Refugee Fund for Ukraine to continue supporting and caring for our colleagues and the people there with immediate aid. This aid will be delivered directly by OSF Digital or through the OSF Digital Foundation or other partner humanitarian organizations.
To date, OSF Digital has helped several thousand people – colleagues and their families and people with no connection to our company. We have raised more than 400K USD so far, and we are using these funds to support the people of Ukraine.
We stand by you. We move forward together. Join us and donate now!
We believe it’s easier for young people to thrive when given the right tools and opportunities. As part of the OSF Digital Foundation, we created a scholarship program to help children from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds receive a high-quality education. We identify stellar students and offer them scholarships to give them a chance at a better future and to reach their full potential.
OSF strongly believes that as a leader in the IT services industry, we can—and must—use our inventiveness to improve the communities where we operate. For years, we’ve engaged in corporate social responsibility by giving back to our communities, focusing on children and families in need, education, and the environment. We sponsor children to attend summer camps, fund childcare center projects, support families during the holidays, and donate school supplies and basic necessities to children.
OSF Digital is a proud member of Pledge 1%, a worldwide program that encourages companies to pledge 1% of their equity, profit, products and/or employee time to their communities. Already, we’ve been giving back to communities around the globe where we operate. As a Pledge 1% member, we’re affirming our commitment to continue our support of charitable causes worldwide, focusing on children and families in need, education, and the environment.
Pledge 1% was founded by Salesforce, Atlassian, Rally and Tides in 2014. OSF Digital joins 9,000+ members in 100 countries that have taken the pledge.
While limiting our own carbon footprint, we also help our customers establish sustainable digital strategies in their organizations. As part of our goal to be environmentally responsible, we made it our mission to preserve and restore forests on a global scale. In 2019, we started a collaboration with Reforest’Action, an NGO with a unique crowd-planting model. Inspired by this initiative, we replicated our global digital footprint into a global OSF Forest. Check out the results we’ve achieved through this program.
As a company with respect for the environment, we minimize our use of electricity, paper, and water. Most of our processes are performed electronically, and we use recycled paper for those minor exceptions when paper is required. Our employees help reduce plastic consumption by using re-usable cups received in the OSF welcome kit. We’ve also eliminated single-use plastic cups from our water coolers.
OSF endorses employee initiatives that advance gender equality. In 2020, the women of OSF created the OSF Women’s Network to bring together female employees and achieve shared goals: raising the number of women employed at OSF to 50%, helping first-time moms cope during maternity leave, helping them integrate faster when they return to work, and sharing information and support to help women grow professionally and personally.
