We believe we have an obligation to do what we can to make the world a better place. We also look for the same kind of social responsibility in the clients with whom we partner.
Starting close to home, we are committed to the well-being of all our people and provide a flexible, family-friendly working environment. We provide one day’s paid leave each year so our staff can support causes that they are passionate about. Whether it’s participating in the Oxfam Walk or the annual Cycle Challenge, we allow our consultants to give back and still meet their work obligations.
As technical experts, we also believe that we have an obligation to share our knowledge with the community. That’s why we are actively involved in organisations like the Australian Oracle User Group, as well as the Project Management Institute of Australia and Australian Institute of Project Management.
We also do what we can to minimise our impact on the environment. We recycle paper and print cartridges, use energy efficient light bulbs and minimise travel where we can. Skype, conference calls and constantly seeking new ways to make remote teams work better are all part of our daily routine.
However there’s only so much that we can do alone. That’s why we support two organisations that are doing great things to make our world a safer and more sustainable place.
Supporting Aussie Kids
As a family-friendly organisation, Prescience Technology supports an amazing charity called ACT for Kids, a not-for-profit organisation which gives direct parenting support to over 1,200 families through their network of ACT for Kids family centres. ACT for Kids tackles both the causes and effects of child abuse. They teach kids how to stay safe, and they speak up for kids through informational and social change campaigns. ACT for Kids also run one-on-one counselling services for kids and families who are already suffering abuse-related trauma.
In 2008, Prescience provided funding to support the development of a sensory room in ACT’s Wooloowin centre in Brisbane and in 2009, we funded the construction of a small water play area in one of their centres in Brisbane and the replacement of their play area sun shades. In 2010, we maintained our commitment with the purchase of new books and resources, again for the Wooloowin centre.
Regenerating and protecting our great, green world
Prescience Technology is a proud supporter of the Australian Rainforest Foundation (ARF) and a regular participant in their Adopt-a-Square program.
ARF is a non-profit organisation dedicated to education, research and habitat rehabilitation for Australia’s tropical rainforests. The Adopt-a-Square program enables ARF to purchase vital land for conservation and ensure the rainforest receives hands-on attention from local people. Prescience Technology recently adopted a small part of the World Heritage Daintree rainforest area, so that it remains a strong and vibrant part of our Australian culture, environment and lives for decades to come.
