Award in recognition of commitment of voluntary activities
Since 2013, the principal shareholder of Vienna Insurance Group has awarded the award in recognition of commitment to voluntary activities to honour Group employees who volunteer their free time to help others in a special way. Nominations for this award are made by fellow employees, and a jury selects the winners from the many nominations submitted.
In 2017 the winners were employees at Group companies in Austria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Georgia and Lithuania. These people serve their communities in a wide variety of ways: by teaching disadvantaged children; working for hospices, assisting persons with mental disabilities and carrying out neighbourhood, refugee and homeless support – to name just a few.
