Award in recognition of commitment to voluntary activities
Vienna Insurance Group employees also spend countless hours doing voluntary work during their spare time. The number of employees regularly involved in such activities can only be estimated based on the large number of nominations that have been submitted for the Award in Recognition of Commitment to Voluntary Activities, which was introduced in 2013. All employees are invited to nominate colleagues who they know do valuable voluntary work in aid of social causes and help the most vulnerable members of society. The winners are then selected from the nominations.
The award winners 2019 volunteer in a variety of ways for fellow human beings: from active commitment to seriously ill children and help for disadvantaged children, ensuring medical care in Kenya and Tanzania, supporting cancer patients and their relatives, voluntary work with the Red Cross or ecologically valuable activities – to name but a few. Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein presents these awards to highlight the importance of a sense of togetherness and solidarity in the community.
