‘Bringing Smiles’ is the theme for our overall global CSR initiative. It essentially stands for bringing joy and smiles to young minds through digital technology and technology intervention. Brillio has committed to achieving a goal of reaching 100,000 young minds, aged 10-16 years old, globally by 2020. The company aims to be an influential part of their lives, helping to shape their careers over a span of 6-7 years, supporting and mentoring them. The organization aims to achieve this with the help of its employees; who have volunteered to pledge 100,000 hours of their time.
Brillio’s initiatives are all employee-centric. Recently we conducted an internal survey amongst the millennial employees asking about the three things that inspire them to be a part of Brillio. Undoubtedly, CSR was amongst the top three. This is mainly due to the inclusion of the employees in our initiatives and challenging them to strive better.
Volunteering is recognized a great deal in the company, and takes a structured course. To give you a perspective on the numbers, 5000 volunteering hours have been clocked to date and impacted 5000 young minds. Brillio recognizes its employees’ efforts through various reward-based programs. One such example is our ‘Hike and Smile’ initiative at Brillio, which encourages and rewards our top 10 employees based on number of hours volunteered; with a fully sponsored mountaineering/hiking trip

Just over a year ago, we came together to embark on a journey to bring smiles to over 5000 lives and have committed to helping many more. The gratification of our efforts brought on a sense of togetherness that transcended through Brillio. Now we are embarking on a journey to integrate sustainability in all our future efforts through our new “Bringing Smiles – Sustaining Happiness” Initiative. We together plan to explore, inspire and ignite the spirit of Sustainability and embed the mantra of ‘Act Responsible, Think Sustainable’.
