Digital innovation for a sustainable future
To thrive in the times ahead, we must apply a mindset that contributes to the greater good and align with the preferences and requirements of all stakeholders. Our mission is to make people, businesses, and society flourish, and we are just getting started.
Our sustainability report
To capture and provide insight into our journey towards a more sustainable future, we are thrilled to present to you the Fellowmind sustainability report. With this document, we want to make everyone aware of our ambitions and to show the steps we take to reach our objectives.
Making people flourish
Our circle of success starts with passionate people. People who are willing to go the extra mile and create a unique customer experience that leads to sustainable and rewarding relationships.
We strive to empower our people to bring their talents to the world by giving them the freedom to flourish and providing a workplace in which everyone can be their authentic selves.
Inclusivity and diversity
Being an inclusive employer is important for more than one reason. Inclusion leads to diversity. If everyone feels welcome and safe, no matter who you are or how you define yourself, we believe that it will attract others from different backgrounds. And at Fellowmind, that’s what we want to stimulate.
These are three of our initiatives to initiate diversity in the workplace further:
Female hire: The IT industry has a long tradition of being male-dominated. We have high ambitions to change that tradition. At Fellowmind, as of early 2022, 24 percent of the employees are women, and every year we raise our targets to increase the rate of female hires.
Non-binary inclusion: We welcome the fact that people can identify as non-binary and non-binary employees can feel included. At the same time, it gives us a chance to become aware of potential differences in employee experiences not only between men and women, but also those who identify as non-binary.
Hire people with disabilities: Fellowmind has recently hired new personnel, with help from a Dutch company called ITVitae, which works with education, training, and employment services for people with autism.
Ethical business partner
Our employees and customers belong to the same tribe. Being an ethical and reliable business partner is of high priority. We as a company can make a difference, both by having our own house in order and by having open discussions on sustainability and ethical dilemmas, internally as well as with our customers.
Building a Center of Excellence
In our mission to support customers with sustainable and data-driven processes, we will create a company-wide competence center called the Center of Excellence for Sustainable Offerings. With an international team of experts, we will team up with Microsoft to share insights about this vital focus area and provide our customers with knowledge of legislation and GHG (greenhouse gas) measurement.
Taking the lead on the Cloud for Sustainability
Microsoft Partner Pledge
As a Microsoft partner, Fellowmind has signed the Microsoft Partner Pledge. The pledge is about encouraging and supporting the adoption of technologies in a deep and ethical way and ensuring everyone possesses the right skills and opportunities to make the most of what lies ahead. The Microsoft Partner Pledge focuses on the following four critical goals: Digital skills for the job, Diversity & Inclusion, Responsible and Ethical AI, and Sustainability.
Bringing innovation to life
The agricultural sector faces great challenges with shortages of agricultural land and, due to climate change, also the availability of good water and soil conditions to meet global demands for food in the future. As the first provider in Europe, we have partnered up with Microsoft to collaborate with farmers, in the Farmbeats project, and help realize the future of the European agricultural sector.
