CSR Our People

Putting people first

Our standing as a global technology leader reflects the passion and commitment of our people. We strive to create a workplace where people can continually grow and explore, and where employees can realize more fulfilling and productive careers. This drives Cisco’s strong performance and allows our people to help change the world for the better.

Promoting diversity

We are committed to maintaining an inclusive and diverse workforce. The more perspectives we can draw on, the better we can solve global challenges. Cisco has always been committed to paying our people fairly and equitably across our global company. We are proud to have taken a national leadership role in advancing fair pay for everyone as one of the 28 founding signers of the White House Equal Pay Pledge.

Making a difference

In the recent fiscal year, employee donations and matching funds raised US$12 million for nonprofits. And through Time2Give, thousands of Cisconians took advantage of five paid days off to volunteer for causes that matter to them.

Girls rock IT

Our global, employee-led initiative inspires young women to explore technology.

Striving for a better world

We want to make the world a better place for our employees and neighbors in the communities where we operate. Our employees made significant contributions of their time and treasure in our fiscal year 2017.
