ISG is a strong proponent of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). We endeavor at all times to operate our business in a responsible and ethical manner; recruit and retain superior talent; support diversity among, and provide career opportunities to our people; be good corporate citizens and contribute to the communities in which we do business, and do all we can to protect the environment – directly in our own operations and by helping our clients and their suppliers become better environmental stewards.
In advising our clients, both buyers and sellers of IT and business process services, we consider the CSR impacts of those services on business operations and include those factors in our recommendations.
ISG is a proud sponsor of the Global Outsourcing Social Responsibility Impact Award (GOSRIA), given annually to the service provider that best demonstrates exemplary leadership in, and ongoing commitment to, activities that foster community involvement, fair operating and labor practices, respect for human rights, attention to environmental impacts, consumer issues and good governance.
The GOSRIA award was established in 2011 in partnership with IAOP, a global sourcing industry association that promotes professional and organizational development, recognition, certification and excellence to improve business service models and outcomes.
ISG encourages grass-roots community involvement from its employees through the ISG Cares program. Our employees are active in a wide range of charitable organizations in the 21 countries in which we do business, not only through their monetary donations, but in their direct commitment of time and energy to support fundraising and awareness activities.
