In the environmental realm, NICE reported a decrease in scope 1 and scope 2 CO2e emission intensity. NICE recognizes climate change as one of the biggest threats to society, and in this context is committed to improving the organization’s institutional capacity to assist with climate change mitigation. NICE’s cloud-centered strategy promotes efficient energy consumption for customers, without them needing to compromise on high-quality solutions. NICE has put an increased focus on sustainability in its products that reduce carbon emissions because of minimizing dark data. NICE is also proud to have chosen data center providers that mainly consume electricity sourced from renewable energy, resulting in low data center emissions, and NICE continues to collect data on carbon emissions and water consumption to increase transparency.
When it comes to social activity, NICE increased its employee headcount to nearly 8000 employees at the end of 2022. NICE understands that its employees and communities are essential to its success. NICE also shifted to a hybrid working model, providing flexibility for employees. Furthermore, NICE launched several leadership development programs such as Lead2Win, Growing Peas in Space, and the Accelerated Leadership Program in 2022, which have proven successful in providing managers with new skills and knowledge, leading to better decision-making and increased effectiveness in managing teams. NICE continues its commitment to empowering girls to explore and excel in technology through its Code:Coda program to address the gender gap and improve the diversity in the high-tech sector.
In the area of corporate governance, additional highlights of NICE’s ESG report include that in both 2021 and 2022, 100% of NICE’s employees participated in comprehensive compliance training. The report also highlighted, because of NICE’s continued focus on customer experience, the NPS score improved by over 20 points. Additionally, in 2022, the overall satisfaction with the different domains improved by up to 5 points year-over-year.
