BearingPoint's corporate responsibility strategy includes our responsibilities to our people, our society and our planet.
Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY)
BearingPoint is proud to be associated with the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). CRY is a self-supporting registered charity which means that it operates completely without Government funding. BearingPoint developed CRY’s website to help promote the organisation and its much needed activities. BearingPoint staff also help to raise funds for the charity through sports and social events and other public sponsored activities such as marathons, bake sales and a Point2Point cycle.
It is with this type of support that CRY has been able to:
- Support the Centre for Cardiovascular Risk in Younger Persons (CRYP) in Tallaght, Dublin 24, where families and individuals can be evaluated in a timely and systematic fashion without financial cost.
- Provide counselling and support to families affected – CRY’s goal for 2021 is to launch a Helpline supporting families and those living with a lifestyle change because of a diagnosis. The helpline will be provided free to all and will be delivered by trained volunteers.
- Raise awareness of sudden cardiac death through media campaigns.
For more information on the services they provide please visit www.cry.ie or call CRY on 01 4142235 for fundraising information.
BearingPoint has run monthly CoderDojo events for children of staff where children learn all about digital technology! Children (from as young as 5) came to these events with their parents to learn how to code, develop websites, games and more. These events were run by staff on a voluntary basis, they were a great learning experience for children and are always fun for everyone involved. We are also working with a local education centre to help school teachers bring coding into the classroom, through our Coding for Girls initiative
Techies for Temple Street
The ‘Techies 4 Temple Street’ Treasure Trail is an initiative from Ireland’s technology industry to bring the sector together for a fun, challenging event and to raise funds for a great cause – Temple Street Children’s Hospital, making an impact to the lives of sick children across Ireland.
The three hour event challenges members of the tech community, and their trusted advisors and partners, with technology oriented questions and clues utilising digital media platforms on the day to chart teams’ progress.
BearingPoint were the proud winners back in 2017, beating 130 other teams, consisting of over 1,000 members from the tech community who raised €225,000 and we’d really love to win it again.
“To bring tech teams together for a team building treasure hunt around the city for such a fantastic cause is a brilliant idea and one we’re delighted to be part of. Our teams have participated in Techies 4 Temple Street since 2015 and each year the feedback is better and better. It’s a fun day out for the team and is a standing event on our calendar each year – we wouldn’t miss it!” Gillian O’Sullivan, Country Lead – Ireland.
