Cisco is transforming how people and businesses around the world connect, communicate and collaborate with leading networking and security solutions. They are focused on powering an inclusive future for all through the technology they build, their scale and extended ecosystem, their commitment to corporate social responsibility and social justice, their teams, and the support they bring to their communities.
Cisco puts people, technology, and resources toward Powering an Inclusive Future for All. Cisco focuses it's effort on five key areas:
Cisco received Great Place to Work acknowledgments with 95% of employees saying the company is a great place to work. Cisco employees are also highly engaged in the social impact efforts with a whopping 80% of employees participating in community action projects. For a company with 80,000 employees, this is beyond impressive.
One of many examples of Cisco's work is their mission to help indigenous populations. Indigenous Tribal nations on Tribal lands are the least connected to high-speed internet. MuralNet is a non-profit working to help Indigenous people gain control of their internet access. See the story about how Cisco is narrowing this digital divide here.
The way companies engage their employees and create impact is more important now than ever before. We face global and societal challenges, and companies have the power to make a difference.
Creating impact and engagement at this scale is incredibly challenging. That's why we felt it was essential to launch the WeHero 100 to highlight the top 100 companies making an impact.
WeHero announces a new company to the WeHero 100 monthly, with the goal of raising awareness and motivating more companies to focus on impact.
Join us in celebrating these change makers!
