Tata Consultancy Services Named to Civic 50 List for Sixth Consecutive Year, Confirming the Company’s Pioneering Model for Driving Social Impact

NEW YORK, and MUMBAI --News Direct-- Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)

TCS is proud to share that we have been honored by Points of Light for our high-impact community engagement programs and the organization’s ongoing investments in creating meaningful, lasting change. TCS has also been named the Information Technology Sector Lead for a fourth year. In addition, for the first time, TCS has been honored with the Strategic Volunteer Award for aligning employee volunteer time and talent with its strategic CSR programs. This is the sixth consecutive year TCS has been included on the Civic 50 list.

“Today, more than ever before, employees and communities expect businesses to play a leading role in response to global and local challenges,”

Launched in 2012, the Civic 50 list is determined by an annual survey based on Points of Light’s Corporate Civic Engagement Framework, which creates a roadmap for companies to use their time, talent, and resources to drive social impact in their business and communities.

“Corporate leadership and commitment to civic engagement is critical for strengthening communities,”

TCS was honored by Points of Light for its high-impact community engagement programs and the organization’s ongoing investments in creating meaningful, lasting change. Key milestones for TCS in 2021 included:

  • TCS’ signature STEM programs, via  Designed to encourage computational thinking and spark innovation among school students, these programs are increasing equitable access to STEM learning and preparing the students for the digital workforce of tomorrow.

  • TCS’s Tech 4 Good program logged 14,000 hours of pro bono time over four large-scale digital transformation projects for Internal Medical Corp, Peace First, and Pyxera Global, including a 2,000-hour pro bono commitment to build the ReScore app for the Council for Responsible Sport. Using cloud-based technology, the app enables sporting event organizers of all levels to measure, track, report, and verify their progress on a broad range of environmental and social indicators.

  • A 25% increase in corporate giving by TCS, including both cash and pro bono work, as a direct response to global crises, including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, educator and student needs, food insecurity, and multiple natural disasters.

  • TCS employees collectively participated in 1.1 million hours of diversity, equity, and inclusion training, including bias training and diversity leadership. The company also added five new employee resource groups to six already thriving global affinity groups. In addition, TCS celebrated the launch of the internal guide, “The Language of Inclusivity.” As a technology company with nearly 600,000 people operating in 46 countries around the world, TCS believes that acknowledging and respecting diverse identities is critical to business success.

  • TCS’ Purpose4Life and Leaders with Purpose programs encourage employees to volunteer for worthy causes in their local communities. To date, TCSers in the U.S. have volunteered over 300,000 hours of their time, most of it aligned with the company’s STEM programs, earning TCS this year’s Strategic Volunteer Award.
