Our Goal – While our reach is global, we aim to make a positive impact on emerging economies where we operate. Our goal is to create, strengthen and sustain fruitful relationships in our IT communities with companies, customers, employees and partners alike.
Our Strength – Our strength comes from the generosity of our teams who work to make a difference in the world by supporting business and investing resources in community projects. Pentalog is involved in various educational, environmental and social activities. Our latest project is the set-up of a natural disaster support line to help respond to natural disasters in the Balkan region.
VALUES & PRINCIPLES
“MY SUPERPOWER IS TEAMPOWER”
We’re proud to say our employees are the heartbeat of the company and some of the most talented IT specialists out there. Lots of CSR actions are initiated by our own – and their genuine desire to give back.
We value this and are committed to offering our entire team a climate of growth, healthy competition and diversity.
Pentalog’s core values are upheld on a daily basis through our CSR model:
Transparency with our clients, partners & employees
Growth and continuous improvement
Trust in our employees.
Diversity & Representation in all leadership positions
Culture of knowledge sharing and distribution
Research and development activities
Communication through continual customer/colleague dialogue
EDUCATION & DEVELOPMENT
“NEVER STOP LEARNING”
We want to impart our passion for IT and thirst for knowledge into the younger generation by helping them dip their toes into the professional world of IT. Through trainings, internships, tech meetups, hackathons, partnerships with universities and PentaBAR events we give them a leg up over their peers to succeed in today’s business and technological environment.
PentaStagiu, one of the most popular IT training programs in Romania, has helped over 350 students and graduates become proficient in different programming languages and gain practical experience in the tech field. In order to expand PentaStagiu, we are constantly seeking and strengthening partnerships with universities in Romania.
The SmartOffice Hackathon in Pentalog Chisinau, for example, tested out our participants’ ingenuity by challenging them to build web and mobile applications that involved automated processes, robots, sensors and other kinds of artificial intelligence.
“WORK HARD, PLAY HARDER”
One of the most important CSR initiatives made in 2017 was to join forces with SOS Attitude. This NGO is focused on creating response networks for natural disasters. We recently organized a team building exercise with SOS Attitude where Pentaguys learned how to respond in the case of natural disaster and how to offer first aid to victims.
December is Generosity Month at Pentalog, where we take time to give to the impoverished, making donations, and participating in charity organizations such as Shoe Box. We also organize Christmas fairs every year to raise money for social causes. Pentalog’s Bucharest agency regularly partners up with Casa Valentina and the Brasov agency in supporting the Copiii de Cristal and Raza de Speranta associations.
Pentalog employees enjoy and encourage a healthy lifestyle by organizing and participating in a host of athletic events for charity and for fun.
Through PentaSport, we organize our physical activities. PentaBike, for one, consists of friendly bike competitions and PentalogOpen organizes internal tennis tournaments. We also hold Board Games Nights, PentaPuzzle events, PentaKids reunions and Christmas parties to network and boost team morale.
In the Brasov Heroes competition we ran to support children with autism and joined Walking Month in Cluj, an event to raise funds and buy two community vehicles that would taxi the disabled. We also participated at Casiopeea’s Cross in Bucharest to help raise funds for breast prosthesis and Swimathon Iasi to support a various local initiatives.
Pentalog also sponsors rugby team, CS Manastur Cluj who embodies our own values: excellence, passion, courage & team spirit.
