10 Years of Social Active Day

3. December 2021 ·

10th anniversary: supporting good causes – from Austria to Georgia

Over the past decade, thousands of employees in 22 countries have given a total of 300,000 hours of their time to help people in need.

5 December is International Volunteer Day. Introduced in 1985, this special day focuses on promoting and honouring commitment to voluntary activities worldwide. Every year, employees at the Vienna Insurance Group – Austria’s largest international insurance group – can spend one working day volunteering in support of good causes. Titled Social Active Day, this unique initiative was launched in 2011 – in the middle of the economic and financial crisis – by VIG’s main shareholder, Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein.
