We understand that a good education is crucial to the Ukraine’s future. It allows us to compete on the global stage, so we actively invest in technological education. We support a number of schools and universities, including:
We offer annual scholarships to the best students of the UCU Computer Science Program and reward our employees’ high educational performance via a corporate bonus scheme.
We believe in lifelong learning and shared knowledge. Since 2015, we’ve facilitated six IT Camps for more than 100 Ukrainian ex-combat veterans, allowing them to gain the knowledge and skills to become IT specialists.
We annually run hundreds of internal and external educational events and engineering courses and our experts take part in meetups and industry events, in the Ukraine and abroad, to share their knowledge. They volunteer as lecturers, author new ELEKS’ educational courses and serve as ambassadors for learning and development.
We recognise that opportunities can change the lives of those facing difficulties. We provide ongoing support to 6 children’s charities:
We’ve participated in the ‘St. Nicholas will not forget you’ charity program, which donates Christmas gifts to orphans in the region. And in 2017, ELEKS launched a fundraising campaign to buy infant resuscitation equipment.
We recently sponsored the printing of Brayle fairytale books and created subsequent audio-versions, for children with poor sight.
In 2018, we ran the ‘Touch the Greatness’ project – 3D printing 10 miniature Ukrainian monuments to allow those with blindness to interpret some of our greatest architectural feats. The project was commended by the Centre for CSR Development Ukraine.
We’ve donated our Medical Information System Doctor (Dr ELEKS) licenses to all Ukrainian military hospitals and a number of civilian healthcare institutions. We also provide ongoing support for a number of healthcare initiatives:
We know the planet is facing increasing pressures. That’s why we adopt the ECO ELEKS model: eco-friendly energy saving, recycling and waste reduction processes. We don’t just want to maintain the status quo. We want to restore natural balance and leave behind a better environmental legacy for future generations.
ELEKS partners with initiatives that promote a healthier lifestyle. In 2016 we supported the Ivano-Frankivsk Bike Marathon and the Biggest Morning Workout in Lviv. In 2017, we helped create an outdoor public exercise space in Lviv, as a part of the ‘Communities in action’ project – supported by the European Union. We promote employee participation in a variety of athletic activities.
The breadth of knowledge and understanding that ELEKS has within its walls allows us to leverage that expertise to make superior deliverables for our customers. When you work with ELEKS, you are working with the top 1% of the aptitude and engineering excellence of the whole country.
Right from the start, we really liked ELEKS’ commitment and engagement. They came to us with their best people to try to understand our context, our business idea, and developed the first prototype with us. They were very professional and very customer oriented. I think, without ELEKS it probably would not have been possible to have such a successful product in such a short period of time.
ELEKS has been involved in the development of a number of our consumer-facing websites and mobile applications that allow our customers to easily track their shipments, get the information they need as well as stay in touch with us. We’ve appreciated the level of ELEKS’ expertise, responsiveness and attention to details.
