Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Our CSR engagement for employees is focused on four areas: education, employability, infrastructure enhancement, and local initiatives. The company supports NIIT University, a non-profit institution, with a view to providing quality education for meritorious students. The primary objective of the University is to promote learning and knowledge, and to improve the quality of higher education around research, technology, and sustainability. NIIT Technologies also works closely with institutions like NIIT Foundation, Noida Deaf Society, and other partners to scale CSR initiatives.
NIITians are encouraged to volunteer with various NGOs affiliated to the NIIT Foundation to work with underprivileged sections of society.
NIIT Technologies supports and encourages NIITians who participate and contribute to social causes by providing them four days of paid CSR leave so they can freely devote their time and effort to supporting NGOs of their choice.
This platform allows NIITians to volunteer and financially support various initiatives for marginalized and underprivileged sections of the society. For example, NIITians have been actively involved in supporting the rehabilitation of people affected by natural disasters like the Chennai and Jammu and Kashmir floods. NIITians have also generously volunteered to teach students in the government schools and work with youth at various slum clusters to make them employment-ready.
In collaboration with NIIT Foundation, NIIT Technologies has recently launched a CSR initiative called “Shiksha,” a Career Development Centre at Dankaur village in Greater Noida. Shiksha intends to impart education, employability training, and digital literacy to the youth of Dankaur and nearby villages. It offers industry-specific courses including Showroom Retail, Food & Beverages, Data Entry, and BPO. Soon it will introduce courses like Basics of IT, Advanced IT, Social Networking and English Foundation.
