ICT recruits and assesses employees exclusively in terms of their potential and capacities for a specific job. We also do our utmost to create a positive working environment based on open and honest lines of communication, and free of discrimination, bullying and/or intimidation. ICT aims to create a multicultural environment and currently employs people of different nationalities. Employees have access to all the available information within ICT they need to help them develop and choose the best training courses for them.
“Corporate social responsibility is a natural part of our organisation. ICT wishes to work with integrity and transparency towards all its stakeholders, including shareholders, customers and its employees.”
Projects such as PowerMatching City, USEF and the Energie Koploperproject (energy leader project) in Heerhugowaard have indicated our experience in sustainable projects. We are participating in a number of projects, such as electric transport solutions with Dutch company GreenFlux (charging points at the ICT offices), and with gConcepts, to develop an innovative Telematics concept for electric city transport. ICT is also working on Cloud solutions for various clients. ICT recently launched a pilot project in its own organisation – the ICT Energy Community Pilot project – a smart energy service ICT developed in-house. This solution provides participating households with insight into the energy consumption of their own homes. Once successful, we will roll-out this project externally, incorporating insights and improvements from ICT employees who are taking part in the pilot.
ICT’s sponsorship policy
ICT links its name to a number of social organisations from 2015 onwards. The basic premise is that these are officially recognised and certified organisations that they have a link with sports, culture or corporate social responsibility.
Dutch ALS foundation
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is one of the most serious and debilitating conditions of the nervous system. Although research into the disease has been is conducted all over the world, its cause is still unknown. With an average life expectancy of three to five years after diagnosis, there is little hope for a future as yet. The relatively small number of patients means that players in the pharmaceutical industry and governments have low research budgets for this condition. ICT is investigating how it can contribute to the foundation.
Rijksmuseum – Rijksclub member
Following extensive renovations, the Netherlands largest museum, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, reopened in 2013. The museum is home to the Dutch state’s collection of art and historical artefacts. Being a Rijksclub member gives us the opportunity to invite our employees and clients to the museum for an outstanding view of Dutch history and culture down the centuries.
