What do we mean by a responsible business?
At Avanade we’re committed to being responsible in everything we do, from our purpose – to make a genuine human impact – to forward-looking leadership and sustainability. Being a responsible business isn’t new to Avanade. As a leading digital innovator, we’ve long understood the power of people and technology to change things for the better.
Built on a culture of transparency, ethics, integrity, equality and inclusion, we strive to make a positive impact on the world in lockstep with our ecosystem partners. This guides the way we engage our people, our clients and our community.
When the COVID-19 crisis hit, Avanade employees answered the call to volunteer, recording more than 15,000 hours helping families, neighbors, businesses and community organisations.
When TBI wanted to create the future with infrastructure for energy-neutral homes, it turned to Microsoft and Avanade.
Connecting care teams
When the NHS was struggling to keep its care teams connected from remote locations, we helped rapidly implement Microsoft Teams for 1.2 million users.
Tech for online learning
And when children in underserved communities needed technology for online learning, we partnered with nonprofit InterConnection to donate refurbished laptops.
Avanade provides the tools, technology and expertise to help businesses embed responsible practices and behaviors across environmental, societal and governance challenges for their industry.
"JA now has over 100 million living alumni, many of whom are the world’s business leaders. Just imagine that one day Avanade will have actually helped reach the millions of JA alumni of the future. That to me is as impactful as you can be."
“The new technology is not just about what Seattle Goodwill is able to do now; it’s also setting us up for the future. It all ties together: The system enables faster production and improved output, which leads to a better customer experience. The customers buy more, which provides more revenue so we can help more students.”
“We’re excited to be working with Avanade to connect even more underserved individuals to vital technology, especially during this time of sheltering in place.”
“I just want to say to all employees at Avanade that we are so grateful to have the leadership, the talent and the partnership we are developing with Avanade. We know that we are going to help millions of people to do better in this country … thank you to all of the people volunteering all over the world.”
