Our Social Responsibility
Payara believes that having a social responsibility to our team, our community and our environment makes a difference. We work hard… but also play hard and value opportunities to connect with the wider world sharing common goals to make the world a better, healthier and fairer place. Payara supports many initiatives to do this – see our policies to find out what we support and stand up for- but we also try to give back to the world in which we live by interacting with it in positive, meaningful ways. Have a look at the social projects we are involved with, what our team is volunteering for, or to see what we do together to make a difference.
We operate our company in the same spirit as our open source software. All of our company policies are transparent and available for review.
Encouraging young people to develop their future selves is very important to everyone at Payara. We support students, colleges and schools to do this by volunteering our time and resources to get involved in many initiatives.
At Payara everyone is encouraged to become involved in giving back. As individuals and as a business we volunteer our time, carry out fundraising activities and offer sponsorship to help improve the world we live in.
With a globally-based company, it’s important to bring the team together on a regular basis. We hold a Virtual Payara Day each quarter and an annual Payara Week to shape the future direction of our company and operations. We also regularly participate in fun company events – like parties and baking buddies, and take our new starters out for a group meal.
Our Commitment To Payarans’ Wellbeing
Payara’s vision includes respecting and caring for the individual, supporting them to develop to their full potential. We have established high standards of both physical and mental wellbeing, and therefore we actively encourage all Payarans to take part in, or reflect on, diverse wellbeing activities. We have engaged with the local UK government initiative ‘Worcestershire Works Well’ – an organisation that shares our passion for workplace health and offers advice and accreditation for all forms of wellbeing – from which Payara is proud to have earned accreditation for a proven commitment to our team’s wellbeing.
