One reason many TCS employees cite for choosing to work for the company is a shared desire to improve the communities in which we live and work.
When the COVID-19 pandemic began to impact our communities, TCS employees wasted no time in coming together to offer their financial support.
To recognize this generosity and maximize the impact on communities in this time of need, TCS is matching donations by employees across the world, with the nonprofit beneficiaries localized to the communities in which our employees live and work, selected on need and impact.
In India, we’ve supported the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM-CARES Fund).
In the United States, employees have helped provide food security in partnership with Feeding America - ensuring access to essential supplies for the homeless, poor, elderly, and laid-off workers with Feeding America.
In Canada, donations have provided temporary aid to workers laid off due to COVID-19, and provided mental health support through phone referral programs. We’ve also distributed emergency medical supplies to local authorities who need them the post.
In the Netherlands, employees have helped provide underprivileged children with laptops for distance learning.
In Switzerland we’ve supported those who financially suffer the most from the Covid-19 crisis - especially the working poor and handicapped who have lost their jobs and won’t get sufficient enough financial support from the Swiss government.
In Italy, employee donations have gone to Protezione Civile (Civil Protection) which is a government structure in charge of defense, security, and response to disasters.
In Germany, support have been given to NGOs providing women and children shelter and temporary protection owing to increased domestic violence during this period of lockdown.
Other beneficiaries include the National Emergencies Trust, Australia’s Royal Flying Doctors Service, the New Zealand Red Cross, ABS CBN Kapamilya Foundation and the Hospital of Makati in the Philippines, the People's Association in Singapore, the Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Hong Kong, the National Disaster Management Agency in Malaysia, the BNPB Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana in Indonesia, King Mongkut's Institute of Technology, in Ladkrabang, Thailand and the Shanghai Soong Ching Ling Foundation in China.
