In Esoft, we are a passionate, action-oriented team that purposefully help real estate agents to market and sell properties. With over 20 years of experience delivering media solutions and effective marketing tools to brokers around the world, we know what we are talking about. We are working diligently to set tomorrow’s global standards for how we conduct our business including IT security, system reliability and customer service. We live our values of quality, credibility, openness, innovation, care and passion every day, in our engagement with our customers, suppliers, and, most importantly, with each other.
Our presence in the Nordics and Vietnam influence how we perceive our responsibility towards our employees and communities.
For Esoft, sustainability means:
Our strong focus on always delivering high and consistent quality means that we prioritize development of the right competences. We have a strong focus on training and upskilling of our employees and ensuring that we have a diverse organization in terms of gender and people with determination.
A good work environment and strong sense of community is an important value proposition across our organization. Across the entire organisation, we build on our Nordic values and tradition for employee benefits (such as private health insurance and subsidised canteen), and thereby provide above standard work environment for our employees outside the Nordics. The main risk that Esoft faces when trying to secure a healthy and safe working environment while ensuring our employee’s well-being is their physical and mental well-being.
To strengthen our work environment, especially in Vietnam, we have had a number of workshops focusing on how to improve this. In 2023 we will continue doing workshops focusing on work environment and employee conditions.
The environmental footprint of our operations is mainly related to emissions from our car fleet when driving out to customers, our IT hardware setup and our business travel. In 2022 the Group established our CO2 baseline and are continuously working on reducing the footprint from our operations. Our overall ambition is to run operations as environmentally friendly as possible.
We have a strong focus on running our business responsibly and ensuring that we have good governance in place and respect human rights. The main risk in terms of respecting human rights is first and foremost data privacy and security due to our business handling large amounts of data on behalf of our customers. As a large part of our operation is located in Vietnam, which generally ranks low on Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, this has been of specific importance throughout Esoft’s history.
In 2022, the Group held a number of sessions regarding data privacy and security to strengthen the focus on human rights. No human rights violations have been registered in 2022. For 2023 the Group will continue to train regarding data privacy and other human rights aspects.
In 2022, we have informed all our current and in-scope business partners about our anti-corruption policy. In 2022, there has not been identified any cases of corruption or bribery. In the future, we will communicate our guidelines and expectations regarding anticorruption to employees and business relations through of our code of conducts.
Over the past 15 years we have built a sustainable model around training and employing disadvantaged people in the community here under people with determination. We do this in collaboration with local NGOs and educational institutions in our community. We are satisfied with our efforts regarding our work with social and employee condition in 2022.
This indicator enables us to monitor the company’s performance and effort towards sustainability.
