Working environment
Quality of Life

At Softtek we know that talent is diverse. We respect the identity and living conditions of every person. We promote equal treatment and opportunities.

Traits of a Softtekian:

  • #BePolite→ Make “hi,” “please,” “thank you” and “bye” part of your daily vocabulary.
  • #BePassionate→ Stay passionate and proud of what you do.
  • #BeBold→ Think outside of the box; challenge limits.
  • #BeOutstanding→ Make a habit of excellence.
  • #BeExemplary→ Be a model for others to follow.
  • #BeProactive→ Anticipate the needs of your customers.
  • #BeUnforgettable→ Leave a mark; transcend.
  • #BeKind→ Be willing to help others.
  • #BeUpright→ Do the right thing, with honesty, integrity and respect.

It is very important for Softtek to learn about our people’s perceptions of their relationship to the organization, the environment they work in and their individual interests. We conduct a workplace environment survey which encompasses more Softtekians each year.

The development of our Softtekians is crucial to the success of the organization, so we're always looking to improve and enhance training opportunities.

Softtekian Empowerment Skills
In 2018, we evolved the PowerSkills training program to the Softtekian Empowerment Skills (SES) program, aimed at helping leaders maximize their strengths and fortify their skills. The model is based on the eight leadership skills that Softtekians must learn and put into practice to increase their productivity, and thus the profitability of the business.

We have prepared a Quality of Life Model for our employees because we are convinced that achieving a balance between work and personal life is ideal for human development. The model is intended to help our people achieve their fullest potential.


Fundación Solidaria
Pro Bono Projects

Our goal is to positively impact communities in all regions where we are present. To do this, we carry out activities that improve quality of life and opportunities. That’s why, we carry out activities on behalf of the localities with the intention of contributing to improve their quality of life and opportunities.

This is an educational program focused on bringing technologically talented youth into the workforce, particularly those who have had limited access to education and job opportunities because of external situations. For five months, young people receive training in web programming and human development so they can get a job and improve their lives.

This year we succeeded in having 50% of the program’s graduates obtain jobs in fields including but not limited to information technology, consumer, government, electronics and logistics. This resulted in an average increase of 47% in their household income.

We want to make technology accessible to all, which is why we support nonprofit organizations in automating their internal procedures to increase and improve their impact on the communities where we operate. We have given ourselves the task of creating solutions for our beneficiaries that make their institutional processes more efficient and allow them to focus more on helping communities.

Environmental Standards

Environmental Standards

Softtek is committed to environmental protection, which is why we create and promote innovative technological solutions and programs that meet environmental requirements wherever they are developed.

Our environmental policy underscores our responsibility toward the environment and stewardship of natural resources. Its purpose is to encourage a culture among our associates that brings about a new awareness and a change in responsible consumption habits toward water, energy, waste management and disposal of computer equipment, phones and cables.

We are committed to operating in an efficient, innovative and sustainable manner in order to benefit the environment. Therefore, we have internal initiatives to raise awareness among our associates about energy consumption, so we can reduce our use of fuel and thus our CO2 emissions.

Want to know some of our initiatives in place to reduce energy consumption go and click here.

Our activities do not generate significant direct emissions of greenhouse gases, although employee travel does contribute, so we encourage the application and use of global tools to help reduce our environmental footprint and promote the use of communication technologies that cut down on travel. Our goal is to control and manage this mobility and offset the collateral damage caused by fuel use.

We have a computer recycling and donation initiative to best dispose of equipment that is still in good condition or that has useful components for reformatting or reuse, thus extending their useful life.
