Our Local Initiatives

Our community philosophy is to support skills acquisition, education and social inclusion. We collaborate with partners that offer a range of activities, and give our people the opportunity to get involved close to where they live and work.

Helping Young Professionals Realize their Potential in France

In France, Capgemini and Sogeti partner with an organization called "Nos Quartiers ont des Talents", which helps young graduates from disadvantaged areas find gainful employment. Approximately 30 Sogeti employees, some of whom are members of the executive committee, mentor graduates each year.

Creating Sustainable Futures in the UK

In the UK, Capgemini is a leading member of Business in the Community (BITC), a business-led charity working with companies to improve their business performance while creating a sustainable future for people and the planet. It is also a patron of The Prince's Trust, an organization providing training, mentoring and financial assistance to disadvantaged young people. Between 2008 and 2011, we raised over £1m (€1.2m) for the Trust.

Capgemini Philippines: a small community, a big difference


Capgemini Philippines set up a CSR group in Manila with the following objectives:
  • Reach out to different organizations to volunteer around natural disasters,

  • Engage people do become involved in outreach activity. 
The CSR group signed a one-year contract with GEA Timber Ventures Inc. to finance and help with reforestation by planting trees on land in Bamban, an area that is home to the indigenous Aeta community. 

Transforming communities together in North America

North America has an active Community program. One example is our contribution at New York Cares Day, on October 13. A group of Capgemini employees from the New York area came together, rolled up their sleeves, and volunteered to help transform public schools in the New York area, painting, gardening, cleaning, and organizing material. The team also raised over $660 for the New York Cares organization. 

Mobilizing our Efforts for a Big Impact

We apply Capgemini's core values of freedom and respect in our communities by encouraging and enabling our local teams to support the causes that inspire them. In recent years, our community activities have included:

  • Building classrooms for children with Down’s syndrome in Guatemala
  • Supporting urgent relief efforts for earthquake victims in Chile, as well as flood victims in Queensland Australia and Northern Brazil
  • Organizing charity, sporting and cultural events across North America with the help of the United Way
