Sustainability

Our sustainability approach is based on four focus areas: Governance and Delivery, People, HSE, and Community. They are critical for the growth of the organization and the development of resources in a safe and productive environment.

Governance and Delivery

Governance is the responsibility of our executive leadership team for setting out the objectives and the strategies in line with our mission. The executive team makes sure our operations are run in the most effective and efficient way in compliance with our code of ethics. It’s also the executive team’s responsibility to make sure we use the most efficient tools for ERP and CRM and a unified platform for financials across our operations. The executive team conducts yearly audits to ensure compliance with policies and alignment with strategies.

Sustainability in delivery translates in the solid long-lasting relationships with clients. We work very closely with each client making sure we meet or exceed expectations. Our strategy includes local offices to ensure proximity to the clients, web based tools for more responsiveness and continuous follow-up during project and after delivery for client feedback and evaluation of the performance.

Community

Progesys is committed to contribute time and equity to Operation Enfants Soleil, for aid and research for sick children, as well as Centraide Diapason-Jeunesse, an organization encouraging youth aged 12 to 17 in Laval to remain in school or return to school.

The company contribute also to other community events such as the Educational Programme Pathways and the event Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie.

The 1/1/1 Pledge is an effort to invite technology entrepreneurs and their companies to commit resources (time, equity, product) and integrate philanthropy into their business.

In this program, an organization commits 1% of its time, equity and product or services to the community.
