Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

As a software manufacturer, Precisely Software Incorporated (parent of Precisely Software Limited) (“PSI”) has a largely remote workforce and does not own any of the worldwide office locations where it operates. As such, there are no dedicated programs or training for employees to improve the environment since employees work from home. PSI does, as a matter of company policy regarding the working environment of employees, follow environment, health and safety standards and procedures customary in the industry and/or local jurisdictions of its office locations. PSI only leases with property managers / landlords who comply with local laws, including environmental laws with recycling capacity and such terms are contracted in the various leases. In addition, PSI products and services are designed to be safe and to minimize their environmental impact by implementing industry standard protocols for same, e.g. click wrap agreements, paperless retention policies, downloadable software delivery (instead of tapes, diskettes or CD’s).
Covid-19 recovery

Covid-19 recovery

Precisely has taken great precautions throughout the COVID-19 global pandemic to keep our employees and partners at low risk for contagion. Our global offices were closed and employees were transitioned to work remotely from the safety of their homes from March 2020 until very recently, with very limited access permitted to essential personnel following strict masking and sanitary protocols. Now that Precisely is re-opening offices again, we have taken into account increased employee preferences for remote and hybrid working arrangements. We encourage all employees to be fully vaccinated.
Tackling economic inequality

Tackling economic inequality

Precisely participates in several salary surveys globally to ensure we understand the market for talent and the compensation market trends. We continually look at our own compensation data to ensure competitiveness and fair treatment, and set salaries based on the value of the job, not the applicant’s salary history. This combined with the continued efforts of Precisely’s Diversity and Inclusion Council work to create opportunities for those who may face barriers to employment or are located in deprived areas.
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

While not a classified as a diverse owned company, PSI maintains a robust diversity program lead by its Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) who is charged with driving diversity in the organization. PSI maintains an internal Diversity and Inclusion Council and also launched the Precisely Women in Technology program (PWIT) in 2020 in concert with the Women in IT Awards events. We also partner with Women in Technology in the UK to increase the representation of women in Precisely. PSI’s Executive Leadership team includes women in the following posts: the CHRO, CTO (Chief Technology Officer) and CDIO (Chief Data and Information Officer) and fifty percent (50%) of the members of the Senior Leadership Team are women as well.

In the UK

PSI does not have a supplier diversity program due to the nature of its operations and business. The only relatively material expense PSI has (other than staffing and rent) is computer hardware and software and those purchases are made from large worldwide providers who lead the industry for such hardware and software technologies. To remain competitive and viable, PSI must choose the industry leaders products, however, most if not all, advocate adherence to current diversity philosophies. PSI’s lack of reliance on a traditional supply chain is the reason for not having a supply chain diversity program.
Wellbeing

Wellbeing

The PSI CHRO is responsible for ensuring compliance with local occupational health and safety laws and regulations. The health and well-being of every employee is of vital importance to PSI. It is the policy of PSI to provide safe working conditions for all employees and the success of such a program rests ultimately with the employees. General requirements related to health and safety protections for employees are addressed worldwide in the various Employee Handbooks drafted in the local languages. PSI is presently looking to implement a new employee program and training to improve safety performance that addresses its current remote workforce that will likely remain as such for the foreseeable future. Given the nature of PSI’s business, activities do not require employees to wear protective equipment. PSI does ensure that relative health and safety issues and concerns are addressed regularly, e.g. COVID19, annual flu season, travel alerts, etc. In the UK we provide private health care and an Employee Assistance Program to support employee physical and mental wellbeing. We also work with Health Partners, who provide occupational health support to assist us on making the appropriate adaptions as appropriate.

In addition we have a Volunteer Time Off (VTO) Program and Policy is designed to provide our employees the opportunity to give their time and expertise to support activities that enhance, serve communities and create positive change. around the world. As well as benefitting our local communities volunteering can bring great personal rewards enabling our employees to build connections, develop new skills, and gain a fresh perspective, outside of the workplace.
