Our employees and sales agents are committed to helping others and raising funds for good causes. The German non-profit staff organisation “ergo:wir helfen” (ergo:we help) supports children in need of special attention and care. With its own corporate volunteering programme, ERGO further promotes staff activities for those in need.
"ergo: wir helfen e.V."
The charitable association "ergo: wir helfen"(ergo:we help), run by our employees, lends its support to social and community initiatives and organisations in Germany, such as medical and psychological care in Germany for injured and traumatised children from war-torn areas of the world.
ERGO Corporate Volunteering Programme
Many of our staff members wish to get involved with charitable projects. Under the slogan “Join in and lend encouragement”, since 2015 ERGO has offered its staff Members the opportunity of spending a day together with their colleagues getting involved in social facilities. Be it offering hands-on help, a group outing or imparting knowledge – staff members could choose between various projects supporting or meeting with senior citizens, disabled people, children, disadvantaged youths or refugees.
Inclusion at D.A.S. Netherlands
In 2013, D.A.S. Netherlands has made one million euros available for the conversion of barrier-free workplaces and the procurement of special aids within its organisation. The ERGO company has also been cooperating with the organisation “Emma at Work” since the end of 2013. This organisation helps young people who have been disadvantaged due to a long illness and disabilities to enter the employment market. One employee has already been given a job through “Emma at Work”. In 2014, we want to employ another four to five disabled employees with the assistance of the organisation.
