Corporate Social Responsibility
When we started building software in 1991, doing what’s best for our employees and customers was second nature. As we’ve grown to a company of more than 3,000 strong, we are thankful that we have the opportunity make an even bigger impact on our communities as we sustain a culture that fosters generosity of spirit.
It’s our privilege to forge meaningful, long-term ties with the customers, partners, students, educators and non-profit organisations that shape our vision and values. These relationships make us who we are – a united, engaged workforce that is dedicated to being a positive presence around the globe.
What our Tech Outreach students have to say:
"This is a wonderful program that is very adaptable to all situations. You guys beautifully adapted to this coronavirus situation and handled it perfectly."
"Hy-Tech Club has given me an amazing experience over the semesters I have done it, allowing me to learn as much as possible. It's a wonderful resource for anyone."
"Hy-Tech club is the reason why I can code. They teach you so well and make it enjoyable that anyone who wants to learn or gain more knowledge in coding, I recommend the Hy-Tech Club."
Hyland’s ongoing partnership with St. Martin de Porres offers weekly training to 400 students in Cleveland, Ohio.
“We are thankful for Hyland’s 13 years of commitment to Saint Martin and our Corporate Work Study Program. Providing OnBase training to our students will not only expose them to the growing STEM field, but also provide them with technical skills to navigate database systems in any future career. This expanded partnership highlights how Hyland is committed to youth STEM education and invested in organizations working to address systemic racial inequities in Cleveland.”
Hyland participates in Computer Science Education Week with TECH CORPS, a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring students have access to computer science programs.
“With Hyland’s help, we will deliver engaging lessons to thousands of students around the world. Hyland’s support over many years has helped us pursue our mission of ensuring K-12 students have equal access to computer science programs, skills and resources that prepare them for college, credentials and career.”
“Access and opportunity should not be a barrier. As a tech employer, industry leader and father, I care both personally and professionally about access to high-quality computer science and technology programs that educate and empower. I am so excited to be a part of the national board of directors for TechCorps to help ensure K-12 students have equal access to computer science programs, skills and resources that enhance early learning and prepare them for college and careers.”
Diversity, equity and inclusion
Hyland is committed to creating a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Our decisions are rooted in support for individuals in our organization and our communities. We value individuality, inviting the different skill sets and viewpoints that diversity brings. Hyland aims to celebrate our people, engage our communities, grow our future workforce and support our customers.

Peace of Mind
Hyland encourages and empowers employees to support the organisations that mean the most to them. We offer 12 hours per year of paid volunteer time off, non-profit organisation board-matching to help them align skill sets and interests with local organisations, and gift-matching that helps their donations go even further.
We’re proud of our relationships with programmes and organisations that have a direct impact on our communities, including Adopt-a-Family, the Red Cross, United Way, Business Volunteers Unlimited, The Centres for Families and Children and the Cleveland Food Bank.
Annual day of service
Each year, hundreds of Hylanders roll up our sleeves and work together on a large revitalization project. What started at our headquarters in Northeast Ohio has become a tradition at our offices around the world.
Hylanders for Hylanders
We cultivate an environment where employees are family, and we actively engage in their well-being. Through a grant managed by the Emergency Assistance Foundation, this relief fund allows employees to make charitable donations to assist coworkers in times of need.

The annual 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk to benefit MetroHealth is an opportunity for us to get together, be active and support our Cleveland-area non-profit public health care system. In 2020/2021, Hylanders turned the Hy-5 into a virtual challenge that employees completed on their own. We look forward to continuing this event in person in 2022!
