Doing business the right way
As part of our focus on doing business the right way,
we believe in local engagement.
Discovering Hands trains blind and visually impaired women to use their outstanding tactile sense to test for indicators for breast cancer. Their instructors have worked with us over the years to offer training on how to regularly perform the screening on our own. Additionally, in 2021, we decided to sponsor one 10-month instructor training for a blind or visually impaired woman. A worthy cause that helps a person with disability receive the necessary job training and enables Discovering Hands to grow their team and teach more people to screen for breast cancer.
Employees get together a few times a year to pick up trash in public areas and parks in Vienna and properly recycle the trash afterwards. This is a worthy cause that allows employees to spend a few hours together outdoors while doing something for the environment.
Ronald McDonald House
We have partnered with Ronald McDonald House in Vienna over the years, providing room sponsorships so that families have a comfortable and welcoming environment to retreat and relax a bit as they spend time away from home for their child to be able to receive life-saving medical treatments in Austria. In addition to the sponsorship, employees regularly get involved baking sweet and savoury dishes around holiday seasons to put a smile on these parents’ and kids’ faces as they are going through a really difficult time in their lives.
Organisation "Pferde Stärken“
The organisation "Pferde Stärken" works with children on the autism spectrum as well as with their siblings. Over the years, we’ve gotten involved with general donations or by supporting a specific family in need to be able to enjoy the therapeutic programmes offered at "Pferde Stärken". We are also looking at ways to get employees involved more directly and allowing them to donate their time in addition to financial contributions.
Pride Biz Ally
In support of our focus on diversity and inclusion, we are also allies of Pride Biz Austria, an organization that supports LGBTQ in business.
