Theorem’s unified, company goal is to positively impact each other, our teams and families within our communities and beyond. Our people-first approach to culture helped to further unify us and achieve our goal of navigating the challenges of the pandemic. Through agility and attentiveness to the individual needs of our employees and their communities across the globe, we ensured our teams and their families had the resources they needed to stay as safe and healthy as possible. As a result of our learnings and growth throughout the pandemic, we launched our award-winning Theorem Cares initiative in 2021. Read on to learn more about our award-winning culture.
The Three Main Goals of Theorem Cares:
- Offer employees stability across physical and emotional health and well-being
- Offer stability across working infrastructure
- Ensure teams maintain productivity without impacting client services
The Theorem Cares initiative is an ongoing strategy comprised of a variety of programs that support the company’s overall goals. From improving vaccine accessibility in India to implementing a business continuity plan with employee wellness at the heart, and beyond – Theorem Cares has made a positive global impact not only on our employees but also on our clients and local communities.
Goal 1: Offer global employees stability across physical and emotional health and well-being
With offices located in the US, UK, India and Australia, Theorem is committed to supporting each of our global employees to the best of our ability. While the U.S. was successfully rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine, the government-led rollout in India was severely ineffective – leaving our employees and their families with little protection as the Delta variant was ravaging the country.
Theorem took drastic action to ensure accessibility to vaccines in India. By partnering with local hospitals, we ensured equal opportunity for our staff and their families to be vaccinated and protected against COVID-19. We fully funded both doses for our team members, their immediate and extended families as the luxury of free vaccination is not accessible in India.
Additionally, the local communities in India were struggling with a lack of medical transportation for the ill due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To aid in the effort, the Theorem team donated ambulances to area medical facilities to aid the mobility of patients within the local communities surrounding our India offices. We also offered private transportation and security for employees and their families to accommodate transportation needs and safety during lockdown procedures across regions.
Goal 2: Offer stability across working infrastructure
Theorem’s core values were tested when employees began experiencing different and localized pandemic-related threats worldwide. Theorem’s top priority was keeping teams happy, healthy and protected despite individual circumstances. To combat this chaos, Theorem created and executed its Business Continuity Plan (BCP), shifting teams worldwide to a virtual, flexible working environment with minimal disruptions to client services.
Supplying Theorem employees with the equipment and connectivity needed to achieve a stable working environment at home was essential. For the employees based in India, we supplied bandwidth hardware, supplemental hardware for VPN and private network access, laptops and private transportation with physical security and surveillance video capability to provide safety for employees during lockdown transportation.
Goal 3: Ensure teams maintained productivity without impacting client services
The Theorem team facilitated healthcare access and mental health support services to global teams to ensure maintenance of overall physical, mental and emotional health and wellness throughout the pandemic and beyond. Theorem also hosted office-wide donation drives for charities and encouraged employees to contribute to philanthropic causes with Volunteer Time Off – such as Black Girls Code, the Anti-Racism Fund and Feeding America – to help address larger societal issues and ensure the progress of tomorrow for people of diverse backgrounds.
In addition, Theorem initiated an updated culture value methodology across the organization to enable the prioritization of both clients and employees. Our six values — collaboration, communication, pro-activity, client-centricity, adaptability, and accountability — have helped maintain a well-functioning, unified company despite the sudden global work from home mandates. These principles are the heart of our company culture helping to guide our employees as we all navigate this new normal.

“Quite an impressive COVID response, and well summarized. Thank you for your submission.

I appreciate how Theorem not only served employees, but the communities as well. All this while trying to keep your business operations intact during the pandemic – that would be a significant balancing act.”
“In terms of a Covid-19 response, it’s great that Theorem “repurposed a section of the company’s transportation fleet into ambulances and donated them to local medical facilities to aid the mobility of patients in the community.” Theorem’s business continuity plan and what it provided its employees during Covid is very similar to what other companies have done.”
