We can learn a lot from the construction industry. Building Social Value has been developed by the Considerate Constructors Scheme in conjunction with a number of leading construction companies and industry clients across the UK. By using the scheme to carry out the report, contractors and clients gain a professional, third-party report, which helps to evaluate the impact of the site in creating social value.
It's not often we see this with IT solutions, hopefully with this change in procurement rules we'll start to see more IT solutions demonstrate their social value.
Our Pega Government Platform helps some of the largest and most complex government agencies achieve policy objectives and improve lives. Pega’s clients report that Pega gives them the fastest time to value, extremely rapid deployment, efficient reuse, and sharing processes at a global scale.
“We will now develop proposals for government’s biggest suppliers to publish data and provide action plans for how they plan to address key social issues and disparities – such as ethnic minority representation, gender pay, and what they are doing to tackle the scourge of modern slavery.”
