Running a sustainable business for us is about striking a balance between the expectations of our stakeholders with our company goals. Clients, employees, investors, partners, academia and local communities want different things from us, and we are able to balance these through our sustainability strategy and robust engagement methodology. It is through continuous, constructive and responsible engagement that we are able to expand our efforts to realize a sustainable future for ourselves, and for our stakeholders.
Our clients are our most important stakeholders. We define the business problems of our clients in more than 50 countries and help them stay ahead of emerging business trends and outperform their competition in a sustainable future. We do this through Zero Distance, a ground-up, grassroots approach to ensure that each one of us is at 'Zero Distance' - to the end user, to the underlying technology and therefore to the value. We engage with our clients through a variety of platforms and interactions.
With over 200,000 employees representing more than 120 nationalities, we are employers of choice for fresh graduates and mid-career professionals. Women comprise 35.6% of our workforce. Our employees are initiated into the global culture of the company the day they join, and are encouraged to explore and find their areas of interest. We work towards keeping our diverse workforce motivated and engaged throughout the year.
Investors not only keep us afloat with their capital, but they also put their faith in us, and we explore every avenue of engaging with them to continue to earn their trust. All our innovations and new offerings are geared towards generating greater revenues so that our investors earn higher dividends. Be it through the annual general meeting or analyst meets, we have created multiple channels of engaging with our investors, besides building an exclusive platform to address investor grievances.
Our partners include technology partners, vendors and research institutions. We collaborate with our technology partners to create the best solutions for our clients. We depend on our vendor partners to keep our operations on track. Our research partners help us give more concrete shape to our ideas and visions on emerging technologies and resource-efficient solutions for our own use and for our clients.
As a technology services company, our success is critically dependent on the quality of talent we hire. Investing in academia is our way of giving back to the community that is responsible for creating our talent pipeline. We work with educational institutes in India to develop collaborative programs and supplement their curricula with the aim of raising the employability and aspirations of the students. We also recruit interns from globally renowned business schools to promote the culture of two-way learning.
We are committed to the welfare of communities where we have our operations since their well-being is crucial not only for the health of our business ecosystem, but also for all-round development of the society. Our responsibility towards nurturing these communities is part of our business sustainability strategy. We engage with individuals and groups through our CSR teams and volunteer groups in areas where help is needed.
