Corporate social responsibility

Social and sustainable entrepreneurship in our DNA

Social and sustainable entrepreneurship (ESG) is an essential part of who we are as a company and the way we work. We help public and private organisations to reach their goals more effectively and always look beyond the bottom line.

Our organisation works as sustainably as possible. All our employees work from home or travel to our office in Utrecht by bicycle or public transport. We work almost exclusively digitally (paper-free) and rent our offices at a social organisation with social and ecological goals, providing meat-free catering with minimal food waste. The offices also contribute to urban nature, through a courtyard, beehives on the roof, a ‘plant hospital’ and a plant care service during holidays.

On a social level, we deliver our Social Return goals primarily through social purchasing. The facility management and catering of our offices are provided by people with disabilities, with otherwise limited access to labour market opportunities. Bizaline is a recognised training company: we regularly provide young people a chance to start their careers with us through internships. Our staff is composed of a mix of nationalities, younger and older people, men and women, leading to an inclusive company culture.

In terms of our governance, we treat all our stakeholders with honesty and transparency, including customers, employees, and our flexible shell. We are a horizontal company that actively involves its employees in strategy development and decision-making, and we promote active discussion on our collective direction. Data security and privacy are important considerations in the design and continuous improvement of our software. We also offer 25% discounts on our products and services to organisations with social goals.

“As a strategic advisor, it is clear to me that organisations are most successful when they operate from their intrinsic values. What are the needs our there, and how can we contribute to a solution? For all our clients, we try to put the needs of the 'customer' (or user, or citizen) at the heart of the organisational goals and objective. That is how we maximise our impact on a better world.”
