Amman September 2011
For the 4th consecutive year and since joining the international UN Global compact initiative in 2007, TactiX Strategic consulting reaffirms its continuous support and has recently submitted the second communication on progress report with the focus on the Human Rights principal.
TactiX was among the first from Jordan, representing small and medium sized enterprises, to join the renowned inititiative and has submitted the first 2009’s report highlighting efforts on the environmental fronts. The second report summarizes endorsed actions regarding the human rights principal tapping on Tactix’s new organizational restructuring, recruitment policies and internship programs, performance measurements and indicators, working environment and employees’ open communication channels.
TactiX Managing Partner, Nasif Khoury commented: “To sustain a growing business, companies should maintain an equal balance nurturing the pillars of this foundation; whether it is the clientele base or actual assets, the human capital is definitely on top of this list, otherwise expansion will be limited. At TactiX we strongly believe in creating the right working atmosphere and we are proud of our environment which embraces a group of talented members contributing to our performance, clients’ satisfaction and brand equity in the market we operate in.”
Khoury added: “Success is not only about making profit, it is about creating an imprint with sustainable growth and this can only be achieved through the dedicated efforts of team members to secure a solid track record with excellent reputation. Being members in the Global Compact initiative is definitely a value added asset and we will always cherish our name and will continue to serve our employees with full dedication and support.”

UN Global Compact Initiative:
The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. By doing so, business, as a primary driver of globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere. As social, political and economic challenges (and opportunities) — whether occurring at home or in other regions — affect business more than ever before, many companies recognize the need to collaborate and partner with governments, civil society, labour and the United Nations. This ever-increasing understanding is reflected in the Global Compact's rapid growth. With over 8700 corporate participants and other stakeholders from over 130 countries, it is the largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative in the world.
Endorsed by chief executives, the Global Compact is a practical framework for the development, implementation, and disclosure of sustainability policies and practices, offering participants a wide spectrum of work streams, management tools and resources — all designed to help advance sustainable business models and markets.
