Corporate Social Responsibility is at the forefronts of our minds – we strongly believe that as a successful company we should be contributing back to the society through a number of projects, both in the Czech Republic, where our HQ is based, but also across other countries we run our business.
In order to make our CSR a reality we have empowered every employee to take an active part in supporting our longstanding commitment to spend 1% of EBT to the social responsibility, and have launched a new project called Philanthropy and You in 2017.
The project. Based on a simple notion that every employee may donate up to 200 EUR in 2017, 300 EUR in 2018 or an equivalent in the local currency to a charity of choice by signing a simple contract amendment has been a great success, and enjoyed an overwhelming participation of 78% amongst all employees, many of whom continue to support the selected charities on their own.
As we want to encourage our employees to spend even more than money – their time- with non profit organizations in need - we launched BeBetter Day in 2018 - one day off for volunteering in any non profit organization of their choice – employees spent this day usually by manual work in senior houses and found this experience very useful for their personal growth.
There is one project we support on a long-term basis and is connected to our business:
TruckHelp Foundation – a foundation supporting families who have lost a father during his work as a professional driver.
In coming years we want to continue with our unique Philanthropy and You programme and enjoy both donation and meeting with people in need.
