Datamatics has been actively participating in community outreach activities across all the locations. We have been instrumental in providing help to societies during natural calamities/pandemics and any such situations:
Datamatics Philippines was part of a fascinating urban community BASECO, that has emerged from reclaimed land that the Bataan Shipping and Engineering Company previously occupied. It has developed into the largest urban poor community, housing approximately 103,000 individuals. As a part of our CSR initiative, the Philippines team visited Barangay 649 in BASECO Port Area, Manila, to donate motorized fishing boats to three deserving families. The beneficiaries were selected by the Employee Engagement team with the assistance of the Barangay social welfare office. The event brought happiness, improved health, and a sense of well-being to everyone involved as they participated in activities like Zumba, painting the fishing boats, and sharing meals. Volunteering employees felt a sense of accomplishment, and the beneficiaries expressed gratitude for receiving fishing boats that would undoubtedly provide them with opportunities for a better life.
Toclong Kawit Cavite Community has a population of approx six hundred families, which include 4500 individuals. The women are predominantly fish/mussel vendors, and the men are construction workers. Datamatics - Philippines team initiated a project to provide a safe and sustainable water source to the community's residents. A deep well and water pump were installed. A small livelihood program and event were conducted for the youth.
Due to the explosion of the Taal volcano on January 12, 2020, in the Philippines, many families from Batangas lost their homes and belongings.
Datamatics - Philippines team did a voluntary outreach initiative to help the people affected by the Taal crisis. Essential items and food were distributed in the evacuation centers. The employees voluntarily contributed generously to help needy people.
Many Filipinos needed immediate help after suffering the brunt of Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco), which came only a week after Super Typhoon Rolly (Goni), 2020's most potent storm. To respond to this call for help, Datamatics collaborated with our client Domu Brands employees and took the initiative to do a fundraising program and organize outreach for San Rafael, Rodriguez, and Rizal residents.
Datamatics adopted a village in Navapada, Wada District, Maharashtra in collaboration with TERI (The Energy and Resource Institute) to provide solar lanterns with one solar charging station on the occasion of the festival of lights - Spreading Light and Enlightening Lives. Datamatics donated 82 solar lamps. It was a part of a campaign launched by TERI in 2007 called Lighting a Billion Lives with a vision to provide clean and affordable source of light to un–electrified or poorly electrified villages of India. This effort has not only brightened their lives but also empowered them to lead better lives.
Datamatics conducted various initiatives during Covid 19 pandemic across locations in India.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, as migrants are dispersed in multiple regions of the country, Datamatics undertook the responsibility of helping the migrants stranded in Mumbai. As a part of our CSR initiative, we volunteered to help the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to help the migrants by setting up an emergency response centre in two days and monitoring the migrants across different regions in Mumbai to supply food to them.
Free COVID Vaccination Camp at Datamatics office, in association with Primary Health Centre, Govt. of Puducherry, was organized for both employees & their family members.
1st vaccination camp conducted on 10-Jul-2021 with 141 beneficiaries and 2nd Vaccination camp was conducted on 8-Oct-2021 with 150 beneficiaries.
Datamatics also enabled the smooth execution of a free COVID Vaccination Camp for over a thousand people at Puducherry by helping the Primary Health Centre with various computer equipment and providing critical IT infrastructure components.
Similar campaign was also carried out in other offices.
Datamatics Partnered with the Wockhardt Foundation by supporting their Anaaj+ program and was able to help over 1000 families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic by providing them with groceries and hygiene essentials.
Some Datamaticians, along with the HR team, interacted virtually, keeping social distancing in mind with residents of the slum, to understand their challenges. As unemployment among the youth on account of COVID-induced layoffs, was a challenge. We initiated a Talent Pool study with local representatives' help, looking at possible employment opportunities at Datamatics.
Datamatics took note of the dire situation during the second wave of COVID (delta variant), especially the rural villages without much access to primary healthcare that were hit the worst and moved swiftly to help. We tied up with Ms Aneesha Dalmia, President of the Rotary Club of Delhi Premier and donated a 45-litre oxygen plant to the city hospital in Haryana's Palwal district. This plant can cater to 10 regular or 5 ICU oxygen beds. The City hospital supports five villages in its neighbourhood, with a combined population of 20,000. It was a massive relief for the villagers to have the necessary support accessible.
This timely support of the oxygen plant has saved precious lives and helped make Palwal's rural villages self-sufficient in medical amenities.
During the 2nd wave, cases surged, the backlog of structured & unstructured data, and timely updation and results were the need of the hour. We helped upload the data on the ICMR portal per their guidelines by creating unique entries and submitting records. Nashik Municipal Corporation appreciated our timely support.
As a part of that Community Care philosophy, we part-adopted a slum (Sambhaji Nagar) in Mumbai, which was under complete lockdown due to large numbers of COVID cases with no other means of survival. Datamatics partnered with the Wockhardt Foundation by supporting its Anaaj + program and catered to the needs of over 1000 families affected by COVID-19 by providing groceries & hygiene essentials.
Urgent support was provided for the supply of food to the underprivileged at the onset of Covid-19 by partnering with Vichi Agro Products Private Limited, Mumbai.
Datamatics Puducherry catered to the healthcare and sanitation needs of the Puducherry community by handing over the representation of Mobile Toilets (10) and bathrooms (2) donation to Indira Gandhi Medical College & Research Institute [IGMCRI] (Govt. of Puducherry) for Covid-19 rehabilitation centre, as a part of CSR initiative.
The Datamatics team, in the presence of CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) and Health Secretary Dr T. Arun IAS, did the handing over to the honourable Chief Minister Mr N. Rangasamy on 15-Jul-2021. On July 16 2021, the Covid Transit point at IGMCRI got inaugurated by Lt. Governor Dr Tamilsai Soundararajan.
Speaking about the various initiatives for the Puducherry community, Dr Rima Ghose Chowdhury, CHRO and CSR Leader, Datamatics, said, "Datamatics Puducherry office has always partnered with the State in various social initiatives around community healthcare and employment. We are happy to do our bit for the Puducherry community and will continue to contribute in our small way in the future."
In 2020, Datamatics donated 500 Masks and Automatic Hand Sanitizer to the Police department to support their services and help them stay protected while protecting us. A similar initiative also took place in Nashik.
Datamatics continuously put efforts in creating employability to all in the society.
We have outsourced a range of projects and processes to home-based professionals. These home-based professionals are known as Knowledge associates. Homemakers and physically challenged people, many retired people, students and freelancers have been associated with Datamatics as Knowledge Associates.
The KA model provides homemakers with an opportunity to work from the comfort of their homes and, at the same time, helps them manage their homes and be independent. It not only provides them means to earn but also allows them to learn new processes, gives them a break from the daily house chores and provides mental stimulation.
The KA model also has been a boon for physically challenged people who find it difficult to get employment elsewhere. Datamatics has been associated with Chembur-based NGO "NASEOH" for the last 10-12 years. Datamatics provided work to these people and donated Computers to NASEOH. Since then, more than 50 physically challenged people have benefited from this facility.
Datamatics has been associated with over 5000 Knowledge Associates for the last 20 years. These KA can work from any corner of the country.
Apart from home-based professionals, Datamatics provides work to Rural BPOs, helping to employ people in rural areas.

We work towards creating more awareness and acceptance while providing more support.
Individuals in remote rural areas need better employment opportunities in their towns and villages and are forced by circumstances to migrate in large numbers to the cities.
Datamatics creates employment opportunities for such people by recruiting locals in their offices.
