Conscience at work

At Customer Analytics, we see Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as more than just a roster of activities. It is an extension of our approach to work and life. Our philosophy of 'proportion' and 'balance' is incomplete without our accountability to the society we function in.

CSR

We are proud to work with causes and organizations that empower the disenfranchised and enable self-reliance.

Our contributions could be in kind, buying supplies, setting up career training opportunities or paying educational dues; or as human capital, through volunteering efforts. Some areas we like to target are: children, children with special needs, health care for children and the elderly, hygiene, education (tuition support, providing supplies or computers) and contributing to maintenance of buildings to support these activities.
