A Message from Nancy Josephs, CEO
Veritext has long been committed to leading the litigation industry in all dimensions. This includes best-in-class service, including a responsibility to our employees, clients, and partners; a strong acquisition and organic growth strategy; and a dedication to incorporating advanced technology-based solutions with the utmost security. Equally as important, Veritext is committed to ensuring that we make the world a better place for generations to come. Forces such as climate change, global health issues, inequality, and exclusion can give rise to catastrophe; Veritext is committed to combating these forces. To that end, our company is open to challenging the status quo and rethinking how we operate in order to align our business with sustainable development.
A company is only as strong as the impact that it creates. Recent events have shown the extent to which accountability, transparency, collaboration, and corporate responsibility are the cornerstones of sustainable enterprises. Charting out a path to long-term sustainability is a multifaceted proposition that requires business leaders to devise and implement stakeholder-driven strategies and initiatives that make positive impacts, both internally and externally.
Internally, companies must create inclusive spaces where employees feel safe, heard, and cared for. This is not only the right thing to do given our duty of care to our colleagues; it is also imperative given our fiduciary duty to our shareholders. Externally, we must grapple with how our operations impact the fight against climate change and deforestation, human rights, and other global challenges. It is our responsibility to identify the issues that are most material to our businesses.
At Veritext, we are firm believers in the promise of technology to enable the innovative, cutting-edge solutions that we provide to our clients. Over the last two years, that conviction was put to the test by the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, it persists, with technology continuing to generate benefits for our primary stakeholders. As we expanded our company, we were able to scale up our landmark platforms to even greater heights. In doing so, we were able to downsize our office footprint and reallocate resources toward initiatives for boosting the well-being of our workforce.
As we engaged in these activities, our leadership focused on the long-term vision of building an innovative platform that would not only advance our business, but also lay the groundwork for a more sustainable company. We recognize that we are still at the early stages of our sustainability journey; nonetheless, we are confident that our track record of success in harnessing the forces of innovation and translating them into technological solutions will be an asset to us in this regard. We understand the challenges that lie ahead of us and the critical role technology must play in our sustainability journey.
