CR Report: Our Employees
We are CSC: EMPLOYEES strong
Our company thrives because our employees cultivate relationships and commit significant time and energy to our clients and the business. Through education and mentorship, diversity and wellness, we continue to prioritize the growth and development of each of our EMPLOYEES employees.
Supporting Employee Diversity
This year we launched our Employee Resource Group (ERG) Program to provide global and regional forums where employees with similar professional interests and shared perspectives meet to advance best practices, share ideas and form professional and mentoring relationships.
Women in Leadership is dedicated to attracting, retaining and motivating women with deep industry experience and broad perspective, to support our increasingly global and diverse client base.
Hispanic Network promotes cultural awareness and leverages networking opportunities for Hispanic community outreach. Members are encouraged to volunteer and take advantage of cultural experiences within their respective communities.
Gays, Lesbians and Everyone Else promotes awareness around lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, provides a forum for employees to network, and engages in outreach activities to promote CSC as an LGBT-friendly organization.
Black Employee Network provides a forum to exchange ideas, network and create a collaborative environment for internal and external stakeholders. Goals include promoting cultural diversity, professional development and personal and professional growth through leadership and education, while leveraging opportunities for community outreach.
Strengthening Our Cultural Awareness for Business Impact
Forming and sustaining effective business relationships requires more than a cursory knowledge of a country’s culture, ethics and working practices. Whether our employees are moving overseas, working on a virtual/global team, or doing business across borders, to be highly effective in today’s international business arena they need a deeper cross-cultural understanding. We offer them a cultural effectiveness toolkit that gives valuable insight on how to successfully interact with people from different cultures.
Using Virtual Worlds to Engage Employees
In order to continually attract and keep the brightest talent, we are using Second Life technology, creating a “CSC Island” as an interactive social media platform that communicates the CSC story as it links regional/local information with enterprise content.
We used the virtual world to celebrate CSC’s 50th anniversary, and continue to evaluate how it can expand employees’ knowledge of our company and its history so they may perform better in their roles.
Educating Our Leaders
To ensure that our senior management — and our leaders of tomorrow — are well versed in corporate responsibility and its broad, positive impacts on our business, we regularly brief them on various aspects of the CR program. As part of our CR governance, senior leaders from all facets of our business volunteer on our CR Board.
CSC’s Educational Assistance Program is one of several ways that full-time employees can gain additional skills and knowledge to enhance job performance. Through one of the industry’s most generous employer-provided tuition assistance programs, CSC employees may apply for reimbursement for course work in pursuit of a degree at an accredited institution, as well as for certification examinations or professional designations.
Learn at Work Day
We encourage workforce learning in support of our growth initiatives, through an investment in learning programs, technologies and activities for all of our employees. CSC’s Learn at Work Day is an annual event that promotes workplace learning and showcases our formal and informal opportunities that are accessible to every employee.
Employees from across the globe partake of this educational spotlight of information, skills training, and networking that can help them to reach their development and career goals. Some of the activities that spanned all regions included:
- The Global Chief Learning Officer (CLO) webinar showcased new trends to help employees sharpen their skills, improve performance or prepare for certifications
- Virgin Racing, a key CSC client and new partner, provided a Formula 1 car racing simulator for the day.
- A just-in-time, peer-to-peer coaching session exercise provided recommended tools and instructions on how to give or receive ‘Feed Forward’ coaching
- Regionally sponsored events included workshops, learning exhibits, virtual book clubs, games and webinars
- Social collaboration Web sites and regional CLO blogs shared personal viewpoints on what employees can do to grow their career
The event offered our employees the toolsets, knowledge and opportunities to make new connections and start networking.
We received significant recognition this year for our diversity in action and for our stellar educational learning programs.

Many veterans around the world work for CSC. Within the U.S., over 9,600 veterans are currently employed by CSC, representing over 20% of the U.S. veterans workforce. Employees who are called to active duty in support of national security are often absent for long periods in order to fulfill their military service obligations. During their absence, these employees are provided with additional benefits that exceed the federal requirements, including salary pay differentials and extended options for healthcare coverage, retirement savings and other company benefits.
