Corporate Volunteering – Five working days per year for social engagement
In 2013 we launched a corporate volunteering programme for all employees of our company group Austria-wide, which grants them time for social engagement. Over 700 employees have already taken advantage of this offer and worked for organisations such as Caritas, Hilfswerk, Lebenshilfe, Soma, Wiener Tafel and the Austrian Red Cross. The great response led management to expand the programme in 2018 and to grant five days per employee and year with full pay, rather than one as before.
What matters is personal initiative. In the scope of corporate volunteering, employees can take action themselves and advocate for important causes. They also have the chance to recommend projects and organisations that are important to them and which they would like to support.
