A Sense of Belonging

We’re passionate about promoting greater diversity in the tech sector and creating a workplace and culture where all of our employees feel a sense of belonging and are empowered to be their authentic selves.

Inclusion is everyone’s responsibility – from senior executives to our newest apprentices. And what we’re achieving today is just the beginning. We promise to champion diversity and inclusion for all minority groups with ongoing learning and training, as well as career progression opportunities for everyone.

Our Commitments

A Sustainable Future

At Softcat we take sustainability seriously. It’s not just about talking about it or writing it in a report, but it’s about living and breathing it. That’s why we’ve now set goals that align Softcat to the most relevant areas of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Every day we are looking for more ways to do things better. And as part of our team, we’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas too.

Giving Back

Our social commitments are central to the Softcat culture. If you want to find out more take a look at what we’ve been involved in.

You’ll be encouraged to get actively involved in our charitable work. There’s all sorts going on, from sponsored events to raise funds for the homeless, to charity Christmas albums. Since we began nominating an annual charity in 2009 we have raised well over a million pounds for our chosen causes.
    Charities we have supported include:
  • Dreams Come True
  • The Bubble Foundation UK
  • Tuberous Sclerosis Association
  • Comic Relief
  • Children in Need
  • Wycombe Homeless Connection
  • St Mungo’s
  • Threshold
  • Macmillan Cancer Support
  • Cancer Research UK

We’re a business that believes in doing the right thing when it comes to actively protecting the environment. Our “green team”, managed by our CEO, is responsible for raising the green agenda across the company. We look at every aspect of what we do, from recycling tea bags in our compost ‘wormery’ to choosing the most efficient pool cars. Cisco recently named us their UK and Ireland ‘Responsibility Partner of the Year’ and we’ve even featured positively on a Channel 4 documentary covering the green credentials of UK businesses.

We’re very proud of the people and culture at Softcat – and we’re firmly focused on making sure employees are happy with working life. Our open-plan offices reflect our culture, leaders are visible and available, and communication flows easily. Achievements are regularly recognised, both informally and formally including seasonal parties, quarterly team socialising budgets, and our staff recognition ceremonies. We’ve consistently placed highly in the Great Place to Work awards, and our Glassdoor approval rating is exceptionally good.

Our Love2Volunteer campaign focuses on promoting and encouraging our employees to demonstrate the difference we can all make together. We give everyone two free charitable days that they can choose to use at any of the many scheduled volunteering events we have throughout the year. Those events are focused on four key areas; Animals, Community, Environment and Homeless; where we will give something back to those that need our help and support.
