Capgemini celebrated its 10th Annual CARES Day - the company's annual day of service where employees volunteer together, with clients and partners, to help improve the communities where employees live and work.

Employees volunteering to help improve communities

Capgemini celebrates annual Cares Day

Capgemini's annual community service programme unites employees from all business areas across the United States and Canada to volunteer in their local communities. In some cities, local clients and partners participate alongside employees in Capgemini Cares Day events.

Capgemini encourages its employees to volunteer, donate, and participate in this day of service. The day enables its employees to network with each other, engage with clients and partners around community efforts, and serve their communities.

Capgemini empowers each city to select which charity they will support for this day, with each community supporting a local organization from food banks and homeless shelters, to park clean-ups and more. The company has a core planning team that spans across functions and strategic business units, and its team members still have the freedom to choose which organizations they want to support.

Some cities chose one charity and some chose multiple charities. Cities have the freedom, one of Capgemini’s core values, to decide what this event will look like in their city.

Commitment to Capgemini's seven core values

Capgemini Cares Day

Capgemini Cares Day demonstrates the company's commitment to the seven core values. The seven shared values exist at the heart of the company and influences the way Capgemini meets client needs while respecting the regulatory requirements of each country in which it operates, and the way the company promotes ethically sound practices within Capgemini and in its partnerships.

Capgemini's seven core values are:

  • Honest, loyalty, integrity, uprightness, a complete refusal to use any underhanded method to help win business or gain any kind of advantage.
  • Boldness, implying a flair for entrepreneurship, and a desire to take considered risks and show commitment (naturally linked to a firm determination to uphold one’s commitments).
  • Trust, meaning the willingness to empower both individuals and teams; to have decisions made as close as possible to the point where they will be put into practice. Trust also means giving priority, within the company, to real openness toward other people and the widest possible sharing of ideas and information.
  • Freedom, meaning independence in thought, judgment and deeds, and entrepreneurial spirit, creativity. It also means tolerance, respect for others, for different cultures and customs, an essential quality in a Group of over 200,000 people of around 120 different nationalities.
  • Fun, means feeling good about being part of the company or one’s team, feeling proud of what one does, feeling a sense of accomplishment in the search for better quality and greater efficiency, feeling part of a challenging project.
  • Modesty, that is simplicity, the very opposite of affectation, pretension, pomposity, arrogance and boastfulness. It is about being discreet, showing natural modesty, common sense, being attentive to others and taking the trouble to be understood by them.
  • Team Spirit, meaning solidarity, friendship, fidelity, generosity, fairness in sharing the benefits of collective work; accepting responsibilities and an instinctive willingness to support common efforts when the storm is raging.
