That’s why Klauke commits to numerous projects that provide genuine help quickly, without the red tape.Children and education are especially important to Klauke.
Social Commitment in Idea Management
Do good - true to this motto, our idea management implemented an employee idea some time ago. The employee's suggestion was that the cash bonuses they receive for winning new ideas would go as a donation to the Burgholz Children's and Youth Hospice, which has been supported by Klauke for some time. Many colleagues support the implementation with their donations and so the sum of 600 euros was collected for the year 2017, which was handed over at the end of March by the idea collectors together with the Klauke idea manager.
We support a House of Life
For some years now there have been no gifts from Gustav Klauke GmbH at Christmas time. Instead, donations go to, among others, the partnered Burgholz Children's and Youth Hospice. Some employees were already aware of this commitment after the last summer party, others not yet. For this reason, Gustav Klauke GmbH used the last company meeting to familiarise other employees with the facility and the associated donation. The event was crowned by the fact that each employee had the option of donating the amount they would have received for attending the company meeting. We were thrilled that more than 1/3 of the participants took advantage of this opportunity and so the proud sum of 3,500 euros was collected. We know for use that this amount will go straight to those needing it. This makes summer time sunnier for us!
Social Institution Day
For some years now, Gustav Klauke GmbH has supported the children's and youth hospice in Burgholz with financial donations. But that's not all. Therefore, on June 25, six employees set out to help with the organisation of the summer party to benefit the Social Institution Day. At two booths provided to us, everything revolved around the children's entertainment. From face painting to can throwing to many other games of skill a varied programme was offered, which was well received.
First job insights at Klauke
Especially in the professional world, theory and practice are very different. This is why we encourage school students to get an early "taster" of different professions. In cooperation with the Bernsdorf Secondary School 2-3 times a year, 1-2 students have the opportunity to experience various professions during holidays or school placements, e.g. in the assembly area of Klauke Bernsdorf. These placements usually last four days to two weeks. Our experiences with this cooperation are consistently positive and we hope to be able to support the life journey of young people in the future.
Together for a good cause
Guided by the Klauke in-house craftsmen, our apprentices and trainers were active in the former IHK building on Elberfelder Straße. A residential group was set up there for children and adolescents in need of intensive care. The Klauke trainees decided to take on the task of giving the entrance a more friendly design. Product design apprentice Dennis Nowotny says: "We want to bring in some colour" because the old colour scheme was kept more sterile. Selma Ergül, who helped alongside trainer Martin Schmulder, explains that our trainees should use these projects to learn to work for other people's benefit and solve problems as a team. The Klauke trainees are planning the next social assignment in a children’s hospice.
Tool donation for polytechnic
Klauke Slovakia regularly donates tools to “Stredná odborná škola polytechnická“, the leading polytechnic in Dolny Kubin to support the training of skilled workers in this region.
Help for disadvantaged people
Help for the socially and mentally disadvantaged is close to our heart. Klauke Austria provides support to the Morgenstern Association and offers those with learning difficulties, as well as socially disadvantaged youths and young adults, traineeships in the workshop and office at our Austrian subsidiary in Leobersdorf.
Klauke "does school" in the region
For some years now, we have supported schools in Remscheid and the surrounding area - by donating items such as board games, rucksacks, colouring pencils, footballs and tools, for instance. Specifically, Klauke participated in the reconstruction of the burned out "GGS community primary school Eisernstein" in Remscheid. We also supported the schooling activities at the BZI Remscheid (Industry Vocational Training Centre) and gave learning materials to many disadvantaged children.
