Engagement | innovation | Identifying challenges and shaping the future – that’s a mission not just for us as a company but also for more than 12,000 young scientists each year in Europe’s biggest contest for young people. At this year’s regional heat of the Jugend forscht competition in Dortmund, the youngsters presented work with strong similarities to our own.
Engagement | 786 wishes and 786 gifts – from an “outdoor slide” and a “nice soft toy” to a toy vacuum cleaner and traditional gifts such as a soccer ball or a doll. Together with our colleagues from thyssenkrupp we have been lending Father Christmas a helping hand for several years now.
Engagement | Five years after the devastating earthquake in Haiti the children of Delmas 2, a slum in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, can return to their old – and now new – school. The “Collège Verena”, a major school complex comprising primary, secondary and preschools, was almost completely destroyed in 2010. thyssenkrupp employees donated several hundred thousand euros to rebuild the preschool, library and auditorium. We want to say thank you – with children’s smiles, because they are priceless.
Engagement | thyssenkrupp employs about 500 people in South Africa – a country facing major challenges. Poverty, unemployment and hunger are still part of everyday life for many people. That’s a good reason for us and our employees to invest a great deal of time and effort into improving the situation for local people.
Engagement | A good childcare center makes everyone happy: children, parents and employer. thyssenkrupp’s Miniapolis in Essen is a good example. And it’s won an award.
