Making Meaningful Change in Our Global Communities

Across the globe, our colleagues have always been generous, kind and committed to building a better world. Individually and collectively, we are passionate about using our time and talent to give back to the communities where we live and work.

Committed to Progress

Shaping the Present and the Future

At Perficient, we believe innovation is best achieved when every perspective is considered. We believe that diversity and inclusion are constant pursuits, and we recognize that the responsibility to help drive equity throughout the broader industry falls on us.

We’re taking steps to educate and create employment opportunities within our communities. And we're dedicated to providing a wonderful career experience, both professionally and personally.

How We're Making an Impact

Our corporate giving philosophy revolves around two core pillars, each of which are well-aligned to our business – advancing STEM education and improving health and well-being.

Our colleagues have always given selflessly of their time and talent, making our communities a little brighter each day. Here are some of our most recent initiatives.

Advancing STEM Education and Career Opportunities

Perficient is a company full of diverse and immensely capable colleagues, and we understand the importance of supporting the professional development of our global community. Yet there remains a gap in opportunities for STEM careers and education across our communities, especially among women in the field. 

We recognize the need to drive inclusion and equity, and we’re committed to pursuing progress in this critical area through our award-winning Bright Paths program.

Training the Next Generation of AI Leaders

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has changed the way humans experience normal everyday interactions and has redefined consumers’ expectations. We are proud to partner with the Mark Cuban Foundation to host free AI Bootcamps for high school students in the Dallas area. The foundation is focused on recruiting students from underserved communities to attend AI Bootcamps with a key concentration on introducing girls and students of color to the AI and machine learning space.

Spreading Kindness in Our Communities

At the end of 2020, we chose to pay it forward. We granted nearly $500,000 to those in our communities in need — and we did it one colleague and $100 at a time. Our colleagues enthusiastically responded to our kindness campaign, applying their funds to a variety of causes and bringing support and happiness to others all around the globe.

Committing to Sustainable Business Practices

Perficient recognizes and embraces our obligation to the environment, to our shareholders, and to society in general and strives to make substantive efforts to conduct business in a manner that positively impacts the environment.

Paying it Forward to Build a Better World

Our Perficient Gives charitable match program offers U.S. colleagues the opportunity to make donations to eight great causes via bi-monthly payroll deductions that are matched by Perficient. Each participating organization was carefully chosen based on its alignment to our Perficient Giving corporate philosophy.
