CSR Policy

Last Updated: February 7, 2023


At OutsourcingHubIndia.com, it is our conviction that the engagement with social issues must be deep, meaningful, and formed on the bedrock of long-term commitment; for that is the only way by which real change can happen on the ground. This is also reflective of the fact that such an approach serves both, enlightened business interest and social good. We run our social programs on a strong foundation of ethical principles, good governance, and sound management. This includes, among other things, holding ourselves up to public scrutiny through a framework of transparent, rigorous reporting.

We are committed to further capacity building, empowerment of communities, inclusive socio-economic growth, environment protection, promotion of green and energy-efficient technologies, development of backward regions, and upliftment of the marginalized and underprivileged sections of society.
