Corporate Social Responsibility: Community Engagement Programs at PSL

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Colombia has traditionally meant philanthropic activities with very little focus placed on long-term, inclusive and engaged business practices. CSR continues to be something that only larger corporations can spend time and resources on to develop and implement robust, company-wide programs. It makes sense considering that 95% of Colombian businesses are micro-businesses of 1-10 people. However, that does not mean that businesses are not investing in CSR practices, but rather that the practices may not be formalized. As individuals and companies push for more sustainable and robust CSR practices, the role of CSR in Colombia is quickly evolving.

Companies that actively engage in the communities in which they work and pay close attention to the impact made on the well-being of society, tend to have a strong inclination to make better products, support local economies, invest in staff development, and engage in other activities geared towards improving quality of life and communities.


PSL was founded with a strong commitment to always positively contribute to the societies in which we are engaged and working. While we strive for the company to succeed as a business venture, our work will always be conducted with the clear purpose of making a difference, providing meaning and ultimately contributing to the nations in which we operate. As a software outsourcing provider with a nearshoring model, our work extends far beyond the borders of Colombia, so we make an effort to ensure our CSR impact extends far beyond our offices in Bogotá, Medellin, and Mexico City.

As such, PSL directs robust CSR initiatives both internally and externally, and what follows is an introduction to the activities initiated or attended by PSL employees in 2017 within the sphere of Community Involvement and Development.
