If our employees do something good on their own initiative, they can count on our help. We support the volunteer efforts of our employees for community projects – by matching them with appropriate organizations, giving them time during working hours and providing expertise, in-kind donations or financial support. Employees are involved mostly in on-site social projects, but even long-term activities are possible – for example, a social fellowship program or a sabbatical to work on a development aid project.
For over three years, I've been committed to the "Year of Care", a tutoring project at a school in the north of Munich.
The Year of Care initiative is a collaboration between Roland Berger and the ghettokids e.V., a nonprofit organization that cares for disadvantaged children and young people in the Support Center in Munich Nord.
I give the students tutoring in math, German and history. I am always pleased to see how proud the kids are after the lesson when they have learned something. For me, it is very rewarding to do something outside my profession. This project allows me to see many things from a different perspective.
Without the support and confidence of my employer, my involvement would not have been possible. Roland Berger makes an important contribution to my job satisfaction by promoting corporate volunteering.
Here is a short video to give you an impression of the Year of Care.
We are an integral part of our society and make sure we play our part. Find out more.
Before joining Roland Berger, I did several internships with the United Nations. Throughout my experience with Roland Berger's Casablanca office, I was involved in strategy projects in the public sector and was therefore at the core of Morocco's development. But I wanted to know more about non-governmental efforts toward alleviating poverty. Through Roland Berger colleagues, I got in touch with the Grameen Creative Lab founded by Prof. Muhammad Yunus, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006. The Grameen Creative Lab develops and promotes his concept of "Social Business" and the vision of serving society's most pressing needs.
I volunteered for three months and supported mainly the following areas: advising companies that want to create a social business, helping implement "Social Business Investment Funds" and developing a holistic approach for social business in Morocco. More than a break, volunteering has been a great personal and professional experience. My colleagues from the Grameen Creative Lab have become friends and we share a common vision of what a better world could look like!
