People Serving People

Our Community Outreach

We help people, One Caring Interaction at a Time

SYKES in the Community

We are proud to participate in and support numerous community initiatives around the world. From promoting local exercise programs to enabling the delivery of clinical health services around the world, we understand the importance of giving back.

Below is a sampling of a few of the community and public service programs in which we participate:



ComprometeRSE is SYKES Latin America’s corporate social responsibility strategy. This strategy was inspired by the United Nations Global Compact and the ISO 26000. It is currently supported by more than 2000 volunteers in the region.

Domestic Violence Awareness

More women die from domestic violence each year than died in the 9/11 attacks. In the U.S., one in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. For men, that statistic is one in seven. In an effort to raise awareness of the tragic and devastating affects of domestic violence, SYKES recognizes each October as U.S. Domestic Violence Awareness Month by developing and delivering manager programs and awareness information to all employees.
