Supporting People and Communities Around the World
At Computacenter, around the world, our people are key to enabling success for our own business and our customers’ too. We are guided by company values that are at the heart of how we operate as a business and are used in every aspect of our people engagements, from recruitment through to recognition, and throughout our people's career development. With activities across multiple sectors, covering different areas of technology, and operating across a diverse range of geographies, our people make everything we do possible and create the first pillar of our sustainability strategy.
Social value within Computacenter cannot be reduced to metrics alone which is why we are committed to addressing the lived experiences of our people, from supply chain to new recruits, creating a better tomorrow for our people and communities. As we commit to an even brighter future ahead, we have instituted a framework of values and programmes to support our people both at work and through their engagement with the communities that we operate in.

Our business is about technology. But first of all, it's about people.
At Computacenter we have brilliant people driving brilliant outcomes, each and every day. To truly enable our people to be the best they can be and deliver for our customers, we must attract and inspire the best talent in the markets we operate in. We develop and train our talent to reach their full potential, delivering great service for our customers, and driving engagement across the business.
Over the last 40 years, Computacenter has grown from a single location business to an international company. As we grow, maintaining the values and culture that we hold dear have helped make us the company that we are today.
Our Winning Together values drive our culture so our people can continue to deliver for Computacenter and our customers. Our values impact everyone and everything, and will help us build a business for the long term.
We know engagement is key to our success and that a highly engaged workforce helps us deliver better outcomes for our customers.
We have several forums for engaging with our people including Workers Councils in seven countries across Europe, a UK National Forum, 13 recognised trade unions, and over 200 elected employee representatives. In other countries the employee voice is represented by People Panels and Employee Groups.
Ros Rivaz is our nominated Non-Executive Director aligned to our people and regularly engages with employee groups from across the business, reporting feedback and insight directly to the Board.
Reward & Recognition
We ensure that our reward and recognition models are
applied fairly and aligned with performance.
Pay for performance is at the heart of our reward philosophy, and we align remuneration with each employee’s contribution while meeting applicable legislative requirements, including national minimum wages and equal pay. Pay reviews are undertaken annually for all Group employees as detailed in our Pay policies agreements.
Our global recognition tool ‘Bravo!’ helps us to foster a high-performance culture through recognising and rewarding one another’s great performance. It has been a crucial component of employee engagement since March 2020, and we were proud that the scheme was shortlisted in the Employee Benefits Awards 2022 for ‘Best motivation or recognition scheme’.
Diversity, Inclusion, and Wellbeing
Driving a healthy, diverse, and inclusive business is important for our people and our business.
One of the most important factors in Computacenter’s growth as a global business is ensuring that all our people feel valued, respected, and supported to reach their full potential. High performing teams with diverse experience, skill sets, and new perspectives give us a strong competitive advantage and allow us to provide the best service to our customers. The Group has a dedicated D&I manager who works closely with our HR managers and Business Partners to embed D&I into our people vision.
We recognise the importance of delivering social value through our internal and external communities and support our people to deliver activities where they can make the most difference through selected charity partners, social outreach, and volunteering.
Our main aims are to:
- demonstrate our commitment to the wider community;
- motivate staff by encouraging teambuilding activities in a worthwhile cause; and
- communicate Computacenter’s core values to customers, staff, and other stakeholders. We continue to support initiatives to raise money for local charities, as well as supporting activities proposed and run by our employees.
