Wavestone : Statement of non-financial performance 2020/21

Oct 13, 2021

10/13/2021 | 04:32am EDT Message : our own values Engaged in a CSR approach for 10 years now, Wavestone has made it a key part of its strategy. Wavestone is recognized for its extra-financial performance and aims to remain a cutting- edge company in terms of CSR. Wavestone has been in the top 3 in its category in the Gaïa Rating for the past 5 years (2nd place in the category of companies with revenues between €150m and €500m in 2020). Improve client satisfaction and support clients in sustainable performance Promote employee engagement, well-being, and quality-of-life at work The CSR strategy is structured around 5 key commitments: Act for diversity, and create an inclusive working environment where everyone is free to be themselves, and has the same opportunity to fulfill their potential Be a corporate citizen that behaves ethically and responsibly Minimize the impact of our activity on the environment 02 to CSR 2nd in the «Youth" 72/100 "Gold" Commitment "Despite a difficult context in 2020, the year was rich in CSR news: continued implementation of our client satisfaction policy, development of our investment in skills sponsorship, management of the health crisis in a responsible way for all our stakeholders, and finally the integration of ESG criteria in our financing contract". Hélène Cambournac, CSR Manager Hélène Cambournac, CSR Manager, discusses Wavestone's social commitments, particularly in terms of skills sponsorship. Hélène Cambournac What are Wavestone's social commitments? As part of our CSR approach, our commitments aim to establish Wavestone as a good corporate citizen and to support projects with social value. At Wavestone, this commitment to society is reflected in our contribution to sponsorship, firstly through mentoring actions where our employees provide help and support on a particular theme. For example, in France, we support the students of the Georges Villebon Institute, or the association Elles bougent, which aims to increase the number of women in the tech industry. Secondly, Wavestone makes the skills and expertise of its employees available to organizations with a social mission, through free consultancy assignments. The organization of Powerday, Wavestone's international solidarity day, aims to help organizations with concrete projects in the field or through skills sponsorship. Finally, the Wavestone Foundation, through financial sponsorship, supports associations that work for disadvantaged children. Can you tell us more about skills sponsorship at Wavestone? Skills sponsorship consists of carrying out consultancy assignments on behalf of associations or foundations, without being invoiced. The challenges of these missions can be like those of traditional consulting missions, i.e., IT transformation, organization, logistics or change management. These so-called«pro-bono» missions require the same skills, the same high standards and the same commitment as usual consulting missions, and we impose the same quality of delivery during their execution. Any consultant can be asked to contribute his or her expertise to this type of mission. What impact has the Covid-19 crisis had on Wavestone's commitment to sponsorship? The crisis has led to an explosion in the needs of associations and the firm has organized itself to meet this demand. We set up a sponsorship crisis unit to contact our various non-profit partners and foundations and identify their urgent support needs. Despite our staffing 04 constraints linked to the partial activity, we were able to support organizations such as the APHP and the French Red Cross on issues directly linked to the Covid-19 crisis. In addition, practices have been mobilized in this particularly troubled period to achieve a high level of social commitment. In the 2020/21 financial year, we therefore devoted 0.79% of total staff time to social commitment. This rate was even achieved without Powerday, which contributes 0.2% each year. What is the outcome of these actions and what are Wavestone's long-term objectives? If we take stock of the 2020/21 financial year, around 200 consultants were involved in 80 pro-bono missions, for around thirty associations. We have therefore greatly accelerated our commitment. With the return to more sustained activity, the staffing of these missions will become even more challenging. The needs of associations and foundations are still numerous, and we wish to maintain our commitment in particular to our five key partners: Make.org, Share it, La Croix Rouge, Femmes@Numérique and Solidarité Internationale. In 2021/22 we intend to continue to accelerate our investment in skills sponsorship and aim to devote at least 1% of the firm's time to general interest organizations. To achieve this, we have set up new actions such as the reorganization of the sponsorship team to be even more efficient in the management of demand, or the launch of our «solidarity campaign» for which we asked our employees about the theme they wished to prioritize in the context of these missions. The fight against climate change was the most popular theme. As a result, 20% of the contribution in skills sponsorship will be dedicated to projects related to this subject. Share it x Wavestone: the digital transformation of social impact projects Share it is a Tech for Good accelerator at Station F. Through a support program, Share it codes digital solutions for social entrepreneurs and associations. The goal: to help social entrepreneurs increase their impact and support more beneficiaries. To meet the needs of social entrepreneurs, Share it relies on the business and technological expertise of Wavestone consultants. For example, Share it worked with Ticket for Change, which creates engagement programs that reach over 70,000 people to create a dashboard that automates the measurement of the impact of their training. Wavestone consultants have also worked with Share it and Signes de Sens to develop a plug-in that instantly translates any word on the web into sign language video: La Bulle Elix. Over the past 2 years, Wavestone has supported 10 projects, which have had an impact on tens of thousands of people. To find out more, visit Wavestone's website, section «Read our client stories». Wavestone commits to the feminization of the digital industry with the Femmes@Numérique foundation The Femmes@Numérique foundation was created in 2018 under the aegis of the Fondation de France, to fight against the chronic lack of women in digital. Committed to professional equality between women and men, Wavestone is involved with the Foundation with the desire to have a positive impact on society and inequalities. The firm has been supporting Femmes@Numérique for over a year on all its projects. A dozen consultants from different practices (public sector, cybersecurity) have been involved in projects such as the strategic support of the Foundation, the development of its reputation or the hosting of a community of female professionals committed to the feminization of digital professions.
