Giving Back: Corporate Social Responsibility at Syntel
Syntel is committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and promotes and encourages employee participation in community programs. Syntel has donated resources for various charitable sources, including the United Way, Special Olympics, Friends of Oakland Family Services, the Boy Scouts of America, and St. Judes Children's Research Hospital.
Syntel’s own Corporate Social Responsibility vehicle, S'Prayas, was formed in 2006. In 2009, Syntel’s S’Prayas was presented with the 2008-2009 Award of Excellence for Corporate Social Responsibility by the Indian Educational Society-Mumbai.
Parallel to our organizational mission, Syntel employees harness their passion, talent, and innovation to create opportunities for underprivileged children throughout the world.
The efforts of hundreds of Syntel employee volunteers are organized as S’Prayas, with the mission of Enriching Young Minds.
S’Prayas believes in empowering children to believe in themselves by giving them the key to open doors to the world outside – that key is education. This mission is carried out through a variety of educational programs teaching computer literacy and real-life skills that will aid in securing a better future. Programs are carried out at Syntel-sponsored learning centers as well as other locations within local communities.
The annual S’Prayas calendar is filled with sports, arts and environmental campaigns. Activities range from factory and museum visits to exploring parks and planetariums as the volunteers of S’Prayas continue to dedicate their time to Enriching Young Minds.
