Recognition

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.

In 2023, Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein presents the Award in Recognition of Commitment to Voluntary Activities for the eleventh time. Within the VIG Wiener Versicherung Group, this award honours employees who engage in voluntary work in their spare time. The VIG Wiener Versicherung Group has over 25,000 employees in more than 50 companies and 30 countries, including Wiener Städtische Versicherung and Donau Versicherung in Austria.

The 2023 award winners from Latvia, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Poland, Romania, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina volunteer for fellow human beings in a wide variety of ways: : From active commitment to cancer patients, telephone counseling for children and young people, supporting migrants and the elderly in different areas of life, distributing food to the needy, participating in charity events, organizing and carrying out fundraising campaigns, to sports training with the disabled, voluntary membership of the volunteer fire department, social engagement in development and disaster relief, or participating in activities for a cleaner environment.

Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein presents these awards to highlight the importance of a sense of togetherness and solidarity in the community.
