Third annual corporate social responsibility report emphasizes Insight’s people-first approach to technology in the new digital world
TEMPE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ: NSIT), the global integrator of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™ for organizations of all sizes, today released its 2021 Insight Corporate Citizenship Report, formally sharing how the company’s environmental, social and governance business practices positively impact the company’s teammates, clients and communities.
This year’s report emphasizes Insight’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and, during a year marked by several incidents of social injustice in 2020, our continued actions to support a team-oriented workplace of diversity, equality and inclusion. The disruptions of 2020 accelerated a long-brewing shift to digitization for most organizations, and Insight leaned into helping clients make the rapid transition through smart solutions tailored to: highly dispersed workforces, cybersecurity, strategic use of data powered by the cloud and at the edge, process automation, digital commerce and mobile applications, and IT supply chain optimization.
“The world and the IT industry have seen unprecedented change over the course of the past year. But what remains constant is our commitment to building meaningful connections, and the power of technology to connect people in the most meaningful of ways, even when they can’t be together in person,” said Ken Lamneck, Insight president and CEO. “The perseverance shown by our teammates – most of whom transitioned to remote work but many who remained working on-site to equip essential workers on the front lines of the COVID fight – reminds us that people come first in our business. Our corporate citizenship report celebrates that dedication.”
As a member of the United Nations Global Compact, Insight is globally committed to supporting human rights and fair labor, reducing environmental impact and standing against corruption. The company holds its worldwide network of more than 5,000 trusted partners to the same ethical standards through its Vendor Code of Conduct.
