Social

Lifewood has been pursuing an impact sourcing approach to provide training and employment mostly to young generation and female workers from underserved communities in developing countries, enabling them to access the digital economy with better income and career development opportunities.

Having undergone initial training, they gradually improved in their job performance, income and wellbeing of their families. Their social and economic improvement generate positive effect in their community, encouraging other members to join the digital economy which enables flexibility in time and location of work.

The result is creating employment opportunities for many of those who have difficulty to work away from home and who need to take care of children and elderly at home. Apart from improving communities social and financial wellbeing, it reduces the technology divide between developing and advanced nations.

Governance

Strategic Management.

Effective Communication.
Lifewood corporate governance relies on clear, precise communication to achieve business objectives. Business owners must communicate with their teams to outline their tasks and clarify their goals. Staff also must communicate with management to gain the tools they need to accomplish their tasks.Without clear communication, the parties are left to determine their own best course of action, which can give rise to conflicts, inefficiencies and loss of productivity.
