Corporate Social Responsibility is at the heart of our employee empowerment ethos. Our main objective is to have a positive corporate impact in relation to Workplace, Community and Environment through six main pillars of success.

We are proud to be a member of Business in the Community in Northern Ireland, promoting opportunities for women in the workplace and being a part of a significant number of award winning community initiatives including Time to Compute and Time to Read. These initiatives involve employees volunteering to teach children computer skills and to help them to improve their reading. .

We are also passionate about the IT talent of the future and endeavor to extend as many opportunities as possible including STEM events, University Open Days and even Open Door Sessions where Schools from across NI have come in to speak to our IT professionals and see where they could be working in the future.

For Allstate Northern Ireland, the CSR programme is about the integrity with which the company governs itself, how it fulfills its mission and the values it has and what it wants to stand for. Allstate NI recognizes the growing significance of being an ethically and socially responsible organization and is driving forward an enhanced way of doing business in Northern Ireland through its engagement in a multi award winning corporate social responsibility program in which all managers actively participate.
