The bk Group AG takes its own approach to social commitment.
As part of the company’s benefits strategy, which is based on the pillars of education, health and social affairs, the bk Social Days take place.
For this purpose, the company’s employees throughout Europe are released from their work for one day during the year in order to become socially involved. In particular, they are supposed to support local associations or organisations where their active help will have a direct impact. The employees themselves decide which associations they want to support within their teams.
In 2021, 17 organisations were supported in this way. From flood relief in the Ahr valley to construction projects and a wide variety of repair work – all departments of the bk Group lent a hand. Project management, planning and construction, finance, human resources, IT, operations, marketing and all our service technicians throughout Europe were involved.
The following organisations were supported as part of the bk Social Days 2021:
- Integrative kindergarten St. Johannis, Rothenburg o. d. Tauber
- City of Burgbernheim
- Regenbogenland children’s and youth hospice, Düsseldorf
- Bund Naturschutz Bayern e.V., Nuremberg
- Flood relief, Adenau im Ahrtal & Lukas Sermann Winery
- Toby Hendersson Trust, South Shields, England
- The Berliner Tafel e.V.
- City of La Roca del Valles, Spain
- Protestant Children’s Home e.V., Hilden
- Ronald McDonald House, Lübeck
- Burkhardswalde Primary School
- Youth welfare Creglingen
Community accommodation Murtzaner Ring, Berlin
- Help for children with cancer, Frankfurt
- Social rental management Loge R’éveil, France
- Animal shelter Rijpickerwaard, IJsselstein, Netherlands
- Children’s Youth and Family Aid Kastanienhof, Ansbach, Germany
All the helpers were particularly pleased with the thanks and joy of the people in charge of the various organisations. In addition to donations, many social institutions depend on volunteers and honorary helpers. The bk Group was able to actively support them.
Thus, the bk Social Days will take place again in 2022.
