From baseball to water sports - a donation programme for PKV employees has brought numerous voluntary projects forward in 2020. And there is another piece of good news...
Cohesion and commitment are important values in PKV's professional life. The company therefore welcomes all the more the fact that many colleagues are also intensively committed to good causes in their private lives. At the beginning of 2020, the management therefore decided to provide financial support for voluntary work by employees.
In the new donation programme "PKV Extra", PKV has made an amount of up to 5,000 euros available to act as a donor or sponsor for projects in which employees are active themselves. In order to support as many projects as possible, a maximum of 250 euros per employee is made available. It is also easy to apply for these grants via an app on the company's social intranet, and the award is decided by lot.
In 2020, PKV was able to support a total of 16 projects with the help of its employees, for example the support association of the Langendamm primary school, the Quadengel Ostfriesland, the Wilhelmshaven Waves baseball club, the Frisian Wehde youth sports community, the TuS Obenstrohe and the Grabstede volunteer fire brigade.
In view of the high level of voluntary commitment of PKV employees and the many projects in the region that are worth supporting, the management has decided to continue the programme in 2021 with up to 5,000 euros once again.
