Corporate Social Responsibility
At Zensar, we believe that as organizations grow in size and scale, they must play an active role in public welfare. Their accountability must go beyond business interests. Towards society at large. And in transforming communities they operate in.
So, from the very beginning, we have endeavored to make a positive contribution to the underprivileged communities by supporting a wide range of socio-economic, educational, health and environment initiatives.
As a conscientious corporate citizen, we want our CSR initiatives to have a lasting and positive imprint on the society. Zensar Foundation, an independent trust operating under Zensar, leads the company’s philanthropic outreach programs. Many of our community projects and programs are driven by active participation from Zensarians – that is, of course, keeping with our philosophy that employees are our biggest `change agents’ not only in the technology marketplace but in the broader society.
A commitment beyond Business…
Zensar’s CSR programmes focus on creating sustainable development and livelihood for local communities. Zensar Foundation has adopted a small community of about 2000 people in Ambedkar Nagar, near the Zensar campus in Pune, for sustained community development programs. The Foundation facilitates programs pertaining to livelihood creation as well as women-children welfare; and gives direct assistance and resources to individuals, families and other charitable organizations. Over 85 per cent of the community belongs to the Scheduled Caste and thus the Foundation’s work in the community is a core tenet of its Affirmative Action initiatives.
Our CSR agenda rests broadly on four pillars – health, education, socio-economic initiative and environment initiative.
