Social Value in the UK

DXC’s vision goes beyond delivering excellence for our customers. We are committed to delivering excellence for our communities too. We achieve this through our focus on social value – the positive impact we create for society through the work we do. Our UK Social Value Practice strives to contribute to a better world through impact-driven programmes – for people, for our planet, and to protect our supply chains. 


Our inclusive culture powers our results. We are building an inclusive, high-impact culture based on equitable practices and diverse employee perspectives.
