Team day for a good cause

At our Hamburg location we work with more than ten local Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs), supporting our partners’ work through financial, product and time donations.
Departments making time for teambuilding has long been a tradition at Beiersdorf. Employees leave the office for a whole working day to experience something special together as a team. Our colleagues often use these team days to make a joint contribution to a good cause: Depending on the needs of the local NPO this can be a workshop, support for a specific event, or a “hands-on” activity.

For example, in 2018 our employees spent a day with the association “Hände für Kinder” (“A Helping Hand for Kids”) and helped to prepare its summer party. Other teams supported the association “Verikom” in producing CVs drafted during its communication course for refugees, or provided an insight into how job applications are processed. Our colleagues are even happy to help out with renovation work, for instance on the premises of “Aktion Augen Auf” (“Eyes Open Campaign”). They also help take elderly people on a day out, who would otherwise no longer be able to do this without additional help.

team days with social engagement

At the end of the day there are always four winners: Our teams, who thoroughly enjoy making a social, needs-based contribution and coming closer together as a team through this; our partner organization’s respective target group, who benefit directly from the joint engagement; the NPO, which is able to meet its needs with our support; and us as a company, through proactively integrating our employees in our commitment to society.
