CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
The IBA CSR program says that in its daily operations the company is guided by the principles of ethical behavior, transparency, respect for the rule of law and international norms, and respect for human rights.

IBA Group is dedicated to developing, rewarding, and promoting top talent. In addition to salaries, bonuses, and trainings at leading IT companies, IBA has an electronic Honor Board and publicizes clients’ letters of thanks to individual employees in its intranet. Being a company of varying age groups, IBA conducted a restructuring that resulted in the appointment of more young talented people to leading positions.
Through the bulletin board, IBA employees raised money for children who needed to go abroad for operations, collected signatures to protest against the killing of homeless dogs and cats by local authorities, and found families for abandoned puppies and kittens.

The IBA Green IT CSR section includes the following activities:
- Acquire only the equipment that we really need
- Limit the use of paper (workflow automation and common printers for several floors)
- Use power management tools for monitors and hard discs
- Use efficiently the existing equipment
- Replace outdated equipment with new and more effective on schedule
