Social Impact

At Sharesource, we want to make a positive difference in the world- because life is simply too short not to. That’s why our purpose is to ‘provide meaningful work and experiences to Stem graduates in developing countries’.

This allows our clients to benefit by making a difference in the world- meeting their social responsibility goals

The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” – Barack Obama

Be Proactive

When we commit to making a difference, we commit to doing it now. It’s not enough to create a goal for future social impact. One good way to think about this is through a story called The Bag of Potatoes. Watch the video (right) to see what we mean.

I like to encourage people to realize that any action is a good action if it’s proactive and there is positive intent behind it.” – Michael J. Fox

Create Value

Our stakeholders should be better off after working with us. This includes both our clients and team members. As part of creating this value, we also prioritize environmental sustainability.

There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.” – Ray Goforth

Be Fair, Open and Honest

Fairness, openness, and honesty are non-negotiable at Sharesource. We believe that business should be win/win for everyone involved, no matter the circumstance. We treat others with respect and prioritise fairness.

Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values.” – Ellen DeGeneres

Fun, Passion and Love

We want our teams to feel like they’re working with their family. Work isn’t just about work, and we prioritise fun and passion. This is achieved by offering meaningful work for every team member.

Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” – Oprah Winfrey
