Socially Responsible Business
HCL Foundation (HCLF) was established in 2011 as the CSR arm of HCL Technologies. It is a gold standard not for profit organization, that matches the national and international development standards and brings about lasting positive impact in the lives of people, through long term sustainable programs, implemented in full engagement with HCL’s own employees. Our gold standards are Credibility, Transparency, Accountability, Outreach to the Unreached, Sustainability & Up scalability.
Spread across internationally, HCL Foundation works in rural and urban areas towards poverty alleviation through long term investments in holistic education, employability, environment, health, water, sanitation and hygiene, disaster preparedness as well as response. Gender transformative and inclusive approaches form the backbone of the overall program strategy. There is a heavy focus on young people as they form majority of the world’s population. Having said that, HCL Foundation does not limit its interventions to this age group alone. Rather, it works through an integrated development approach.
Whereas its rural interventions in India are led by NGOs doing path breaking work on rural development, identified through a democratic and robust process via HCL Grant and through its flagship direct project in Uttar Pradesh called Samuday, employee engagement is central to the HCL Foundation’s urban projects and many projects are led by employees themselves, under constant supervision by HCL Foundation. These projects essentially contribute to Nation Building and the Global Sustainable Development Goals.

The launch of the iBelieve network within HCL is a monumental step in that direction. At HCL, we are committed to women empowerment and celebrating the contribution of women in the organization as well as in our lives.
