Is social engagement and volunteering important to you? It is important to us as well. This is why we at BASF support the volunteering of its employees. For example, social team-events are very popular. Here, teams work together with a local nonprofit-organization for a day and experience activities which are different from their everyday-tasks, while strengthening their team-spirit. BASF teams have for example renovated a local youth center, created a playground for a public swimming pool and organized a field trip with residents of a nearby senior citizens’ home.
BASF employees volunteer all across the globe: In 2015, the company conducted an idea contest called “Connected to Care”. Employees were able to submit ideas for social projects and realize them together with colleagues, friends and in cooperation with a nonprofit-organization. BASF supported the most popular projects financially and provided day offs – because we want to shape what really matters to us.
