As a UK-headquartered, pan-European organisation, we share the shock, sadness, anger and disappointment that so many across the globe feel as a result of Russia's actions against Ukraine. 

Democratic principles and the right to self-determination are core attributes of our "People" value. This is not negotiable, and we will not compromise on it. We condemn the incursion of sovereign democratic states by foreign militaries, and as such we call on Russia to immediately stop this senseless war and withdraw from Ukraine. We also call on Belarus to stop all direct and indirect aid to Russia in perpetrating their crimes against humanity. 

The majority of our staff is located in Poland — a stable democracy since 1989. We do not have any ties to totalitarian regimes, specifically those of Belarus and Russia. 

Supporting those seeking refuge and help during this time is of the utmost importance to us. As a company and as individuals, we are taking practical steps to extend our support to those who are crossing the Polish border. 

Russia under Vladimir Putin has developed into a rogue nation where human rights and sovereignty are treated with contempt. Belarus under Alexander Lukashenko has a similar track record. At Objectivity, we therefore call upon the leaders of the free world to implement the harshest possible sanctions against both Russia and Belarus; to engender change from within. 

What We’re Doing to Help

Actions speak louder than words. That’s why we're doing all that we can to help — e.g. providing financial aid, finding shelter for those in need, supporting our employees’ grassroots initiatives.

Financial Support  

We understand that financial support is extremely important in these difficult times. As Objectivity, we made a donation to an organisation supporting the Ukrainian refugees. Moreover, as a Founding Partner of the Tech to the Rescue foundation, we donated additional money to support the #TechForUkrainie initiative. Objectivity also conducts the Start2Help programme, which allows each new employee who joins the company to donate 150 PLN from company funds to a charity of choice, including the Polish Humanitarian Action — Ukraine. 

Help with Adaptation 

We are open to employ specialists from Ukraine and offer them a relocation bonus of 7000 PLN as well as the assistance of a real estate agency in Poland. Additionally, we organise training and reskilling programmes for technologies such as .NET (.Net Academy | Objectivity) and Low-Code (Mendix Academy | Objectivity). People coming from Ukraine are invited to participate in these initiatives, as it’s a great way to enter the IT world. 

Our People’s Initiatives 

Our #ObjectivityPeople have once again shown incredible will to help, and as a company we strive to support them in their actions. Objectivity’s employees can take three paid days off work for volunteering activities (this benefit will stay with us forever). Our amazing employees are bringing refugees from the border and hosting them in their own homes, engaging in fundraisers and donating necessary items, such as clothes, furniture, hygienic products, food, and more.  

In March, we are collecting hygiene products for the Różowa Skrzyneczka foundation: tampons, sanitary towels, panty liners, wet wipes, menstrual cups and more, which will be given to Ukrainian women and girls coming to Poland.  

We have also launched an internal communication channel dedicated to helping Ukrainians. Our employees use it to exchange and collect necessary information about providing possible assistance and support, as well as transport possibilities, accommodation, and volunteer activities. 

Mental Wellbeing 

We’re also aware of the impact that war in a neighbouring country can have on our people’s mental health and wellbeing. Objectivity continues to provide psychological and psychotherapeutic support free of charge to our employees to help make this situation more manageable. We’re in touch with our employees who are citizens of the countries affected by the conflict to offer them any support they need.  

During an online meeting with our employees, one of the volunteers explained how to deal with challenging situations related to helping war refugees. Moreover, a series of webinars on emotions related to war, anxiety, and stress are currently being prepared. 

Summary 

As Objectivity, we’d like to thank our employees for their wonderful engagement and compassion. We’re proud to see so many people volunteering and organising grassroots initiatives, while also supporting our top-down ones. Additionally, we want to emphasise that our actions don’t end here. We will be continuing our efforts and starting new initiatives for as long as the people of Ukraine require our help.
