Since the outbreak began, Zscaler has been focused on helping people work from home to keep them safe and to minimize any disruption to our customers’ businesses. That is our number one priority as a company right now and, alongside our company values, it is what drives each of us every day in our work. But for many in the global community, the crisis has little to do with business as usual, and we have a responsibility to help those hardest hit by the pandemic from a health and economic standpoint. Today, Zscaler and its employees are answering a new call to support humanitarian organizations around the world.
Zscaler is helping employees double their contributions to certain charitable organizations that are working hard to help the global community get through the pandemic. We have selected a handful of charities to simplify and speed the distribution of funds. These excellent organizations were chosen based on their history and financial practices and because they correspond to the locations where most of our employees live.
For those of us fortunate enough to be healthy and working right now, let’s not lose sight of what is most important: family, friends, and community. Though we have jobs to do, our health and safety, and that of our communities, is of paramount importance, and these charities are providing critical aid in this time of need. I’m proud that Zscaler and its employees are doing what we can to support our communities. I encourage you to visit their sites and support them, or the charities of your choice, to the degree that you are able.
