In recent years, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become an increasingly prevalent concept among industry leaders. The general idea behind CSR is, of course, a noble one — organizations develop initiatives designed to serve the interests of society through heavy consideration of the impact of their activities on customers, employees, shareholders, communities, and the environment across all aspects of its operations. CSR as a practice extends beyond philanthropic activities and reaches out to the integration of social and business goals.
Dell Technologies has developed its own CSR plan, one that focuses on the creation of technologies that drive human progress. The company reflects this in its values, culture, and how the business is run. Dell takes pride in the fact that it is changing the world for the better by advancing sustainability, cultivating inclusion, and transforming lives with technology.
How Dell’s CSR initiatives are impacting its partners
As a forward-looking organization, Dell knows that a responsible and inclusive business leads to innovation, makes team members proud, and builds trust with customers and partners. To that end, Dell believes that positive social impact is a business imperative and essential to the organization’s success.
But how is this executed in the real world? The following are some recent examples of Dell’s work:
Collaborating for a circular economy
Working with Dell’s recycling and supply chain partners, the organization has developed a circular process for recovering rare-earth magnets from recycled hard disk drives coming and reusing the material in new magnets for tomorrow’s hard drives.
Empowering faster diagnosis
By way of its unique partnership, Dell continues to support and contribute to expanding the use of the Translational Genomic Research Institute's world-class genomic analysis tools for complex diseases.
Championing privacy rights
Dell continues to champion privacy rights in advocating for a U.S. federal privacy law for not just its partners but, in fact, all U.S. consumers, so that one day we can all rest assured knowing that our privacy rights are protected.
Dell’s CSR blueprints and social impact plans have already made an impressive impact on the planet as well as the organization’s global community of partners. And these successes are being recognized across the industry. For the seventh year in a row, Dell has received the distinct recognition as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies® by the Ethisphere® Institute.
Dell was also recognized with Insight’s Hunger Award in 2020 for its many socially impactful initiatives. The award is given to partners who consistently generate new opportunities in their service to clients, demonstrate their commitment to inclusion, and whose efforts are most representative of Insight’s core values.
