Ethics and Integrity

As a member of Global Compact Network, Quidgest is actively engaged with the fight against corruption in all of its forms, including extortion and bribery. Our Business Code of Principles is our commitment to running our operations with honesty, integrity, and openness.

 

Inclusion and Gender Equality

We promote gender equality and the #girlsintech movement to drive women’s ability to empower themselves through technology. We are strongly committed to diversity and inclusion and believe that by improving the diversity of our workforce we will better reflect our customer base and wider society. We believe our strong engagement to diversity is a source of business strength and we are proud to be the first tech companies led by a woman, our CEO Cristina Marinhas.

 

Digital Skills for all

From our first steps we dreamed of driving a world where everyone embraced technology as an essential tool for training new skills of present and future generations. This dream has become our mission. Digital skills are for everyone. In an increasingly technological world, we intend to respond to the challenges and overcome the idea that the IT market is limited only to those who know how to program.
