Corporate Social Responsibilities
We live by our core value of “Serving Others” and have committed a total of 1000+ volunteer hours every year to supporting our local community and underprivileged individuals and groups. TEKsystems China pays special attention to the benefits of disabled children and has established long-term partnerships with multiple non-profit organisations locally to provide donations and regular volunteer service. Each year, we rally our people to give back to our community and make contributions to others. This is an important way to build up our inner spiritual pillar and help those in need at the same time. A great way for our people to gain happiness and satisfaction outside of the office.
