Our CSR programme
We take our responsibility as a business seriously,
and we are committed to making a positive difference wherever we can. Our Sigma Connected CSR projects capture the work we are doing to connect with people, the communities in which we operate and also protecting the environment.
Our approach to CSR
The Sigma Connected mission to ‘Improve everything always’ is at the core of our drive to being a responsible business. We then focus on people, the communities in which we work and the environment, delivering initiatives to make a real difference to people’s lives.
With a diverse workforce in three countries, we want to ensure that everyone in our team can come to work and be their authentic self and where respect is fundamental and heartfelt. That is why we created the One Me, One Sigma Community.
The purpose of the programme is to ensure all our colleagues, communities and all demographics are empowered, educated, represented, protected and aligned to our core values.
In addition to our diversity, inclusion and equality programme we recognise that our people are the heart of our business. It is our aim to create meaningful careers for them through training and leadership programmes as well as rewarding them with our industry leading benefits package.
Impact Sourcing is a key part of our recruitment strategy, across all our regions. Working with support agencies we look to disadvantaged communities or cohorts, both in the UK and South Africa, to identify high potential talent and support them into the workplace through specific training and dedicated support.
Our aim is to be carbon neutral before the end of 2030, and we are looking at the way we operate with less energy as well as investing in off-setting projects so we can achieve our goal.
In partnership with environmental charity Treedom, for each new member of the Sigma Connected team, we are giving a tree to farmers in Tanzania, Ecuador and Madagascar, with the aim of helping them with food and shelter while helping us become carbon neutral.
As part of this initiative, the Sigma Connected employees are given a virtual tree to plant in the Sigma Connected virtual forest. The gift recipient of each tree receives regular updates on what is achieved thanks to their commitment.
