Social Active Day

Since 2011, Group employees have had the opportunity to spend one working day a year doing voluntary work for charities and social institutions.

Staff are involved in a wide variety of activities, ranging from renovation work at support and care facilities, food collections, helping out at soup kitchens and social supermarkets, working with socially disadvantaged people or those in need, through to accompanying the elderly on outings.

The initiative has been extremely well received in the various Group companies, and of course senior managers have also done their bit.

As in the past few years, the statistics for Social Active Day 2016 were very impressive: around 4.400 Group employees from 46 Group Companies and 20 countries of Vienna Insurance Group helped others with knowledge, time and Support.
