Organizations, like individuals, depend for their survival, sustenance and growth on the support and goodwill of the communities of which they are an integral part, and must pay back this generosity in every way they can back to the society. While we strongly believe that our primary obligation or duty as corporate entity is to our shareholders we are just as mindful of the fact that this imperative does not exist in isolation; it is part of a much larger picture wherein we have our entire body of stakeholders i.e. our employees, customers and vendors to business partners, eco-system, local communities, and society at large.
We evaluate and assess each critical business decision or choice from the point of view of diverse stakeholder interest, driven by the need to minimize risk and to pro-actively address long-term social, economic and environmental costs and concerns. The Company and the employees are to actively involve and participate in social welfare projects by voluntarily taking time off from work. We aim at solving some of the present challenges in the areas of education, health care, community development and contributing towards scaling up skill development initiatives by funding activities across the skill development value chain, capacity building and managerial support. We can also sponsor professional counselling for building awareness and mobilising people for enrolling in skilling courses with the right mindset.
This ethical standpoint, derived from the vision of our founder promoters, lies at the heart of the CSR philosophy of SK Finance. Because we believe that there is no contradiction between doing well and doing right. Indeed, doing right is a necessary condition for doing well.
