Tech Cares Award Winners: Unveiling Leaders in Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the B2B tech industry shows a company’s commitment to supporting employees, communities, and the environment. There are a variety of ways a company can partake in CSR initiatives, and the TrustRadius 2023 Tech Cares Awards recognizes those who have gone above and beyond to do so.
Areas of focus for the 2023 Tech Cares Awards were:
- Robust diversity, equity, and inclusion programs
- Charitable donations and fundraising
- Workplace culture, including support for remote and in-office employees
- Demonstrable support for environmental sustainability
Now, for the fourth year running, we are thrilled to announce and celebrate the Tech Cares Award winners. Furthermore, in scouring through the multitude of exceptional nominations received, we noticed several emerging trends in CSR among B2B tech vendors that other tech companies can apply within their organizations.
Vendors going beyond profit-making activities
It’s not every day vendors are recognized for making a positive impact on society or the environment. Receiving that positive brand image can go a long way in a buyer’s eyes. Buyers, especially millennials (65% of the workforce), want to align themselves with brands that participate in CSR. That’s why Tech Cares Award winners are given a badge to wear proudly on their website, social media, and any marketing collateral. If you see that badge, you know they’ve done something positive for their community.
We were blown away by the outstanding nominations received for the 2023 Tech Cares Awards. On top of the 165 winners on this year’s list, we noticed:
- 9 Vendors have made the list for all four consecutive years
- 43 were consecutive winners from last year
- 106 are new to the Tech Cares Award list
Those vendors are really showing commitment to CSR. We are inspired and applaud their efforts!
Exploring B2B CSR trends
Shaping a more inclusive and compassionate tech industry doesn’t happen overnight. But it is happening, and we are excited! In the many Tech Cares submissions received this year, we noticed that tech companies are expanding their breadth of focus in CSR. They’re donating to those in need, lifting up women in tech, and making inclusion-for-all real.
TrustRadius couldn’t be prouder of what we’re seeing out in the real world. Some of these trends have been on the rise for the last couple of years, but some are newer to the game. Here’s a list of eight top trends in CSR for B2B tech companies:
- Sustainability and the environment
- Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)
- Generous donations
- Community impact
- Employee well-being and development
- Support for women in technology
- Education support
Companies we’d like to highlight for excelling in these trends
What a remarkable and inspirational shift toward prioritizing corporate social and environmental impact and responsibility. By fostering innovation and diversity, supporting education, and our planet, these vendors are truly making a difference.
