In our efforts toward creating a fairer, more equitable world and enabling younger generations to utilize all necessary resources for their career success, we have collaborated with Teach For All and supported their activities with donations. Teach For All (www.teachforall.org) supports and connects a global network of independent organizations working around the world to ensure that every child has access to an equitable and excellent education. In addition, we run a global Back To School campaign.

During FY2022, Luxoft employees completed more than 33,300 hours of training, including 18,000 IT-based courses and 15,100 hours of non-IT-based training. Among the programs run at Luxoft is the Leadership Academy Program, which helps participants bridge the gap between the behavior of a doer and those of a true leader, teaching participants how to apply effective tools and methods specific for management roles.
The Project Management Academy is designed to systematize and improve on existing project management knowledge and skills. It is for project managers and team leaders who have the potential of becoming project managers in the foreseeable future but who have limited experience in managing projects as well as other related competencies. There are also English classes, online speaking clubs, and local language courses for relocated employees that take place on a regular basis across our global locations.
