Babble Signs the Microsoft Partner Pledge

Babble signs Microsoft Partner Pledge for an Inclusive and Sustainable Future

At Babble, we’re excited to announce that we’ve committed to the Microsoft Partner Pledge, marking a new chapter in our journey toward greater innovation, collaboration, and sustainability.

As ‘A Force for Good‘, this initiative underlines our dedication to fostering a culture of continuous learning, innovation, and growth, paving the way for a brighter, more inclusive future in technology.

Our Commitments

As a longstanding Microsoft Solutions Partner, we are proud to sign the Microsoft Partner Pledge. This embodies our commitment to working together to address key societal challenges and create a more equal and sustainable future. We believe that technology has the power to transform the world for the better, but only if it is used responsibly and inclusively.

Growing Talent in our Industry

At the core of Babble, we believe in equal opportunities for success, regardless of background or experience. We are passionate about nurturing talent in our industry, especially by making it easier for our staff to develop their skills and get certified – with the aim of growing their careers.

Currently, we are actively partnering with training experts to empower our engineering team in achieving Microsoft certifications. We are aiming to have at least 10 engineers reach high-level certifications within the next 6 months, but that’s not all.

We’re also collaborating with industry leaders to educate our sales and tech teams on their cutting-edge products. By prioritising continuous learning and development, Babble is paving the way for talent growth in our ever-evolving industry.

Enhancing Diversity and Inclusion

We are a company that values and embraces diversity in all its forms. We are actively building and implementing solutions and services that bring all our people together within Babble. The goal is to connect people beyond the work they do every day, promoting a sense of belonging and understanding with groups of people who can unite on common issues.

We are doing this by using technology, including Microsoft collaboration tools, to create spaces within Babble where unique experiences and interests can be shared. This includes sharing news, asking for support or advice, or simply spreading messages of positivity. We believe that by creating these networks that extend beyond the workplace, we can build a more inclusive community where diverse voices and perspectives are celebrated and everyone is heard and valued.

What’s more, charity is close to our hearts at Babble and an area where inclusivity and diversity are championed. Many of our teams are focused on charities and initiatives that are aimed at battling poverty and supporting quality and inclusive education, with the overall aim of reducing inequality across the board.

One example of this is our sponsorship of Ride Across Britain 2024, an epic cycling event that allows us to raise significant funds and support others who share the same goal. Our aim for 2024 is to surpass the impressive £1.1m we raised in 2022.

Charity events like Ride Across Britain allow us to support organisations like the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation – a remarkable charity who are committed to funding research to find effective treatments of motor neuron disease and achieve their goal of A World Free of MND.

Shaping a Desirable World

In order to truly create a desirable world, we believe it’s crucial to focus on building sustainable and responsible practices from the get-go. We’ve made it a priority to link our strategies and business objectives to our vision for a more sustainable world.

We are currently working with The Sustainability Group using the FuturePlus framework to assess our impact and contributions in a variety of environmental, social and governance fields. Using this method means that we have access to data with a score to measure against our ambition. This way, Babble can accurately monitor its performance and make continuous improvements towards achieving our sustainability goals.

Since joining The Sustainability Group, Babble has achieved remarkable milestones in the past year, such as implementing crucial policies, gathering environmental data, and conducting comprehensive sustainability training and engagement throughout the company. This includes actively minimising our energy use where possible, putting in place recovery and recycling programs, and evaluating our major suppliers for their environmental practices and potential impact on the environment.
