Auto forwarded by a Rule
Hot off the press…
Successful, innovative companies tend to aspire for a greater purpose that goes beyond the bottom line. At Dell, we have always believed that technology should be about enabling human potential. This belief has been a core part of our culture for the past 26 years, and today we define our company’s purpose around that singular idea: delivering technology solutions that enable people everywhere to grow and thrive. Our progress against these results can be found throughout this Web site and in our summary corporate responsibility reports.
We consider our commitment to our planet, our communities and our people integral parts of our business strategy. It’s a commitment driven by the types of goals, strategies and accountabilities that characterize every part of our business. And it’s one that persists through all business cycles. Each year we strive to be better — to create technology that can change the world and that makes a positive difference in the lives of our stakeholders. That’s why we continue to be inspired by possibility and guided by purpose. Read our most recent summary report on Corporate Responsibility.
Our strategy for corporate responsibility is simple – to take responsibility for our actions. To do that, we believe we must recognize where we can make the most measurable impact and align our commitments. From there, we then develop measures for reporting our progress and communicating that progress. Learn more about our progress to advancing our corporate responsibility initiatives.
Moving our business forward responsibly is an important tenet of our commitment to corporate responsibility. We understand that being a trustworthy company means we have an obligation to operate more efficiently, optimize returns and manage our company with integrity.
