Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

At Edita, we believe that charity starts at home, and that is our responsibility to encourage and nurture the growth and wellbeing of our staff and the communities in which we do business.

Our training programs are intensive and robust, actively helping ambitious employees to advance their careers, and thus improve their standards of living. More than this, at the Edita Sales Academy and the Edita Manufacturing Academy we are not only teaching the trade, but the presentation, relationship management and other soft skills needed to thrive both at work and in life. Edita also has a program in place under which we pay for MBAs and other certifications for promising employees.

Extending this idea somewhat, in 2014 Edita contributed EGP 10 million to the Tahya Masr (Long Live Egypt) fund. This fund was designed to encourage wealthy individuals and companies to make voluntary donations. Funds are being used to support the economic growth and wellbeing of the country, with a focus on the needs of the underprivileged.

We will continue to implement CSR initiatives where we feel they are most needed whether at a company or country-level.
