The beginning of the year for many people is usually quite relaxed with the sweet aftertaste of family celebrations. However, for Sigma Software Group it was different.

Among the directions that are always in focus for us are education development, gender equality, being a reliable partner for our customers and a responsible employer for our constantly growing team. Every year Sigma Software publishes a thorough yearly report that embraces the main CSR initiatives.
In the new year we have already launched several exciting projects and partnerships:
