About stc CSR
A pioneer in giving back to its community, stc has been committed to its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, Jusoor, since the beginning of its establishment. We are proud to contribute our services, employees’ time and expertise, along with our resources to help a wide variety of causes and charities.
‘Jusoor’ is an Arabic term that translates to ‘Bridges’, which defines the focal point of our existence. We aim to connect people to each other and empower them through facilitating the flow of free exchange of experiences, ideas and information within the community.
Our philosophy is aligned with two key guidelines:
- Bahrain 2030 Economic Vision
- Empowerment of the Individual
We engage with our community through Non-Government Organization (NGO) partnerships through facilitating the flow of information to the communities where we operate to create the empowered individuals. Our prime focus is on the empowerment of people in the community.
We take care of our employees and the wider community through initiatives such as our volunteering programme that supports active community service.
We ensure compliance in internal recycling campaigns that are held to reduce the waste resources, through the implementation and placement of various recycling bins in addition to the use of other recyclable items throughout the year.
The use of technology is important and stc strives for sustainability through the best use of technological practices.
Jusoor’s strategy is based on creating partnerships with its stakeholders; employees, customers, government, contractors, suppliers, in pursue of a win-win relationship for the sustainable wellbeing of all, with focuses on:
- Supporting community empowerment
- Minimizing environmental and social impact of its supply chain practices and operations
- Treating employees with respect & fairness
- Supporting volunteerism
