D-Link has recognized that its actions as a responsible corporate entity can lead to progressive change in the society that it operates in. At D-Link social welfare is an integral part of its value system. D-Link now further pledges its support to Self4Society – a CSR platform recently launched by our Hon. Prime Minster that encourages employees from IT sector to actively volunteer towards social causes, and help build a New India.
The Self4Society platform is a noble initiative by the present government that encourages corporate employees to engage and contribute in social welfare activities. Self4Society is an app based platform that acts as a workspace for Electronics and IT corporates to organize employee engagements (Initiatives) for social work. Organizations can create their own initiatives under the identified National Causes.
“Taking up social responsibility is an ethical obligation for both individuals and businesses. Self4society is a brilliant platform for employee-corporate collaboration towards social welfare. We at D-Link whole heartedly support this innovative approach to CSR. We shall encourage our employees, partners to join us and collectively contribute to the nation building process,” said Tushar Sighat, Managing Director & CEO, D-Link (India) Ltd.

The outcome was that over 1.8 Ton of Garbage was picked and removed from Beach. D-Link has so far played an active role by successfully initiating 7 events in a short Span of time, including grand celebration of International Volunteers Day on 5th Dec 2018 along with National Payment Corporation of India -NPCI Team at Mumbai.

It is heartening to see that D-Link, its employees and partners have taken up the call from PM Narendra Modi for contributing to societal causes by volunteering their time, effort and skills.
