About IBM Corporate Service Corps: IBM Corporate Service Corps is a global pro-bono initiative through which IBM deploys teams of top achieving employees to emerging market countries. These global and multicultural multi-ethnic teams spend one month on the ground working with local government, nonprofit civic groups, and small business. Participating IBM employees offer skills that include technology, scientific research, marketing, finance, human resources, law, and economic development. By the end of 2015, IBM Corporate Service Corps will have dispatched approximately 2,800 IBM employees originating from over 60 countries on engagements to 38 countries -- making this pro bono problem solving program the world's largest of its kind.
