A letter from our CEO that we’ve shared with our customers.
As we are all reacting to Russia’s horrific war in Ukraine, I wanted to let you know what our response has been so far.
Standing firmly with Ukraine, freedom and democracy, on March 1st, we suspended all our Russia-based customers. We do not have any Russia-based suppliers nor Belarus-based customers or suppliers. Should that have been the case, we would have suspended business relationships with all such parties.
We have not decided to suspend candidates with Russian IP addresses from taking our assessments for companies based outside of Russia.
The Codility team is global and comprises people coming from 30 different countries. While we do not have operations in Ukraine, Belarus or Russia, we have team members coming from these countries with close ones in active war zones in Ukraine. We have team members from other countries whose former colleagues or close ones are there too. Part of our global team resides in Warsaw, Poland. Together with our Warsaw-based colleagues, we have organized immediate support for close ones of our team members, engineering community and business community. We are currently sheltering in Warsaw dozens of people who managed to flee the war and we can help others. Please reach out to me directly if we can be of assistance to your employees or their close ones that are affected by this war and can make it to Poland.
We have pledged our engineering support to Ukrainian NGOs as part of the Tech To The Rescue initiative and will be matched with projects and teams that will benefit from our engineering expertise.
Our Women Employee Resource Group (ERG) has donated their funds to humanitarian aid in Ukraine. Our People of Color ERG is in the process of donating theirs specifically to aid refugees of color. Many of our team members decided to pledge their Codility mental health support allowance to humanitarian aid. We continue to work with the team on various aid initiatives for Ukraine and victims of this war. One of Codility’s key values is we’re human and I’m immensely proud of how our team demonstrates this through their actions.
If I can be of assistance to you or your colleagues, please reach out to me directly.
Natalia Panowicz, CEO
