ID are proud to announce that they have officially signed the Microsoft Partner Pledge as of November 2021. Sustainability has been a focus for us here at Intelligent Decisioning Ltd. for some time. Our ongoing flexible working arrangements help in reducing commuting emissions, and we limit paper-based work where possible. We have also provided apprenticeship and work experience opportunities that have allowed students to explore the industry in greater depth. In fact, two of our current full-time employees joined us as a result of these schemes.
Alongside over 200 other organisations, ID have committed to promote the five critical goals outlined by Microsoft through their partner pledge.
We too believe ‘in the role technology can play in addressing broader societal challenges’. We aim to focus our support on:
