Community Involvement & Development
As an organisation that touches millions of lives throughout the UK and Ireland every day, Fujitsu has a significant responsibility to help address social issues affecting the communities in which we operate. We regard this engagement with community stakeholders as a key part of securing long term sustainability for our organisation. The work we do in the community is guided not only by the needs of communities, but by issues that are important to Fujitsu.
Fujitsu is keen to use the skills of its employees in supporting local community and charitable activities. The company encourages active participation in both company and locally initiated programmes and offers one day volunteering per year for such activities.

As well as partnerships, we have our own regionally Impact on Society (IOS) groups, which manage requests for funding and sponsorship and coordinate local volunteering activities on behalf of the Company. These groups are employee led and work closely with organisations in the communities in which we are based. Through IOS, employees are encouraged to contribute their time and knowledge to worthy causes. IOS groups also provide financial support for events such as sponsored runs and bike rides and engages with charities and CASC-registered organisations at the request of employees.
