Helping to create a new normal for giving back
Hindsight Software is proud to have joined Pledge 1%, a global corporate philanthropy movement that is creating a new normal in which the act of “giving back” is integrated into the DNA of companies of all sizes. We are rising to the challenge to pledge 1% of product and employee time to good causes.
Spearheaded by Atlassian, Rally, Salesforce and Tides, Pledge 1% is already empowering over 1,500 companies in 40 countries to make a difference to charitable causes of their choice.
"Serious fun - having fun while solving a serious software development problem for customers - is one of our company values, so joining Pledge 1% and supporting charities is something that will surely be an enjoyable and rewarding experience, and is therefore perfectly aligned to our company ethos," comments Alan Parkinson, Hindsight Software CEO & Co-Founder. "We are still a small company (especially by comparison to the likes of Atlassian who is a partner of ours!) but this doesn’t mean we can’t start giving back to the community. Pledging 1% is achievable and the idea works well because the actual contributions will scale as we grow as a company."
Employees at Hindsight Software have a range of skills and interests on both a professional and personal level, and it’ll be exciting to see where these lead us over the coming weeks and months working both as a team to contribute our time, and also individually with the support and encouragement of each other. In terms of donating our product to charitable causes, we operate in a niche market but many charities have in-house software development teams and our products can certainly be useful to them helping them get software development right, first time.
