Social Responsibility Programs

Diversity and Inclusion
  • Our people are our biggest asset and Diversity and Inclusion is not something we overlook. It is part of our business DNA, and guides us to make informed and ethical decisions to ensure we always do the right thing.
  • We are committed to building smart, healthy, diverse and inclusive work environments for our people and providing equal opportunities and fair treatment in employment.
Volunteer days
  • Each Irdetee has 10 volunteer days every year so that they can give back to their communities. When people get together and work towards the same goal, their impact becomes much bigger. As they say, “one plus one equals three”.
  • From cooking meals for refugees and the homeless to fishing plastic out of canals in Amsterdam and removing trash from the mountains in Beijing – our Irdetees are creating a positive impact everywhere they go.
Irdeto Tech Garden
  • Every year, we host a ‘Tech Garden’ event for children to share our knowledge, passion for technology, and plant some “seeds” about the importance of science and technology.
  • Here, we host some sessions with fun activities around Lego, DIY model making and 3D printing. For the older teens, we deliver more advanced workshops and interactive games on Scratch (programming language) and Crypto Code to learn about Morse code, Caesar cipher and ancient code that was used during the wartime.
Irdeto Moves
  • Irdeto knows how to move – it has great athletes that represent our company in their local communities and even international marathons.
  • In 2021 Irdeto Moves brought together 181 Irdeto colleagues across our 14+_ global offices who participated in a monthly challenge to stay connected, keep active to take care of our well-being, all while raising funds for to the fight against COVID-19.
  • Our goal? To move together for 50,000 minutes and donate $5,000 USD to COVAX. The results? 107,865 active minutes, $10,000 USD raised and 2,000 COVID vaccines donated to COVAX – doubling our initial goal ?
  • This initiative continues – alternating between the organizations we support.
