Luxoft and Polish Business Run among best projects in CSR
We at Luxoft are helping change the lives of others…one event at a time.
In the latest report by the Responsible Business Forum, an organization which has been focusing on addressing CSR in Poland for nearly two decades, Luxoft and charity race Poland Business Run were recognized. The publication, “Responsible business in Poland 2017. Good Practices”, is one of the most prominent and largest overviews of CSR activities in Poland.
The Poland Business Run (PBR) charity race supports those living with mobility disabilities. As a long-term partner and sponsor of the project, Luxoft co-organizes the run in various cities, with 2017's event in Cracow and Wroclaw. And that year, we helped raise money for 22 individuals with mobility disabilities. The money goes toward the purchase of prostheses, orthopedic equipment, rehabilitation services and psychological support.
We’re happy to say the Poland Business Run is a flagship CSR initiative of Luxoft in Poland. At Luxoft, our CSR activities are based on three pillars characterized by the United Nations: ones that support education, activities related to diversity and equal opportunity, and programs that promote health and overall well-being – with PBR encompassed in the third pillar.
“Supporting the Poland Business Run is a great honor for the company,” said Łukasz Macuda, Managing Director of Luxoft Poland. “It’s a great experience to see what a difference Luxoft can make. And for our employees, participating in the run is a creative way to take care of their own health and well-being. It is also a great lesson of teamwork and – last but not least – it is a ton of fun! Helping your community is something everyone should do.”
