Since the formation of Linedata almost 25 years ago, we have put the development and well-being of our employees at the heart of our strategy. We have invested locally in many charitable initiatives in the areas of education, health and environment.
Every day, this commitment embodies the values of our 1100 employees - smart, passionate and caring - who are dedicated to building a shared sustainable future with all our stakeholders.
Building on our long-standing commitment, we would like to reinforce our social footprint and take a step further in serving the general interest, by redistributing a share of our results and by supporting actions that have a positive impact. This approach strengthens and conveys the fundamental values of Linedata.

Our Fields of Action
Societal - Linedata Charity
Linedata Charity is our leading charitable corporate program that supports projects around the world in Health, Education and Environment. In Uganda and in each of our offices, our employees are involved in many initiatives - food drives and fundraising, as well as donations of toys and blood.
Building Student Residence for a new university hospital in Uganda
The co-funding, with a German bank, of Student Residence for a new hospital in Kampala, Uganda, is one of the major projects of our Linedata Charity Program.
The new campus will include a University Centre with state-of-the-art academic facilities, Student Residence, and a hospital of international standards, providing world-class medical and nursing care. The hospital will grow in phases to 600 beds over time.

Our other charities around the world - Some examples
Linedata is involved in helping its employees with their commitments to support and promote education in several countries.
- Over five years, nearly 300 students at the Jwa primary school in Siliana, Tunisia, have received school kits which have enabled better learning conditions.
- In India, 3,600 students from rural areas of Maharashtra State, a suburb of Mumbai, also received school kits.
Our employees work for many causes in the field of health:

Also in Tunisia, in collaboration with the "Amel Tounes" association, a collection of plastic caps has been set up. For every 400kg of caps collected the association will provide a wheelchair to people who need it.
Diversity, equity, and belonging
Linedata strongly believes that a work environment which promotes diversity, equity and the well-being of its employees is of great value. Linedata's workforce is now made up of 34.5% women* and we have set ourselves the goal of exceeding 37% by 2024.

Well-being at work
Our attention to our employees is firmly reflected in the friendly and collaborative working environment we offer. To encourage employees to spend time together, many face-to-face or digital events are regularly organized to strengthen the spirit of belonging and social ties. Relaxation sessions, workshops on nutrition and other initiatives are offered to employees to nurture their well-being. We are also there to assist the teams on matters of mental health or stress management, because "it is OK not to be OK".
The aim of the «Life@Linedata"» annual barometer is to listen to all employees in order to create a flexible, positive work environment and offer a unique experience where everyone can reach their full potential.
Each country uses its results to propose short-term and long-term action plans to enhance the working environment.

As a software company, we are aware of the impact of our digital activity on the environment, which is why we want to contribute positively to global environmental issues by reducing our carbon emissions.
In 2022, Linedata calculated its carbon footprint to define its objectives and its carbon trajectory.
Each employee contributes by adopting pro-environmental behaviour, such as making the most of collaborative tools and changing their digital habits. We also take care to reduce our environmental impact in other areas through several actions: the reduction of CO2 emissions from business trips, the promotion of home-to-office green transportation and the guarantee of best environmental practices in all our offices.
Our partnership policy fully incorporates environmental actions. We regularly engage with our service provider partners and favour cloud hosting solutions for our customers. Within Linedata itself, we opt for hosting our data in the Cloud allowing a reduction in our emissions.
