CSR is a natural part of IT Offshore

May 25, 2020

CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) has become one of the latest “fashion words” within European business, but in the IT Offshore context we have long worked with CSR. We may not have used the term CSR to the same extent as now, but in reality it has always been the essence of what have been experienced in daily work with Offshore locations.

It is not only a sensible business decision but also a human and logical approach to develop offshore locations through transfer of Scandinavian values ​​where possible. However, note the word “possible”. One of the biggest mistakes that can be done is to try and twist and transform an Offshore location into a look alike Europe.

CSR must be practiced with great respect for the local culture hence don’t try to force your own culture on to the offshore team. The culture differences is actually what can be one of the strengths – if used correctly.

We do not have a naive idea that we can change the world, but we can influence our foreign employees through our management style and our business culture. By doing so we encourage to pick up and transfer some of the values ​​that lie in Scandinavian management and the business culture.

At CrossWorkers, it is a natural thing that we educate and train all our employees in national culture and business (onshore) culture. CSR in the offshore context is therefore not a question of trying to impose one’s own culture but a mutual day to day learning and respect for all cultures – a effort that needs focus both Onshore and Offshore.In addition, the more practical activities like office environment, equipment and training activities of all sort are naturally a must to make sure that the physical settings are not hindering the business activities.
In CrossWorkers’ case, there is also implicitly a CSR activity in Denmark, as we actively use Danish employees with a dual cultural background, who know the local culture and speak the language at the Offshore location.

This is sound business logic, but it also allows Onshore employees with other ethnic backgrounds to take full advantage of their linguistic and cultural background.

When it comes to IT Offshore, an extra exciting angle applies to CSR. Namely, the fact that customers who use IT Offshore through their engagement naturally participate in the CSR activities. In other words, there is an opportunity to make a sound business decision while at the same time taking active social responsibility – both nationally and internationally.
