Action Mensch at Klauke
At Gustav Klauke GmbH we don't just focus on work. There's also a special value here with regard to our suppliers and customers. Gustav Klauke GmbH has been supporting Remscheider Lebenshilfe with orders for years. As a whole, people with disabilities can be fully integrated into a work process and are very happy and committed to the cause. This is how they experience the appreciation they deserve and the work they do gives their lives structure, providing them with an important support. The latest project we've carried out together with Lebenshilfe has been creating a tool according to the latest safety standards for the de-insulation of our cable assemblies, which is required during training and trade fairs to demonstrate how our pressing tools work. These display pieces are used during every tool presentation and in this way the Lebenshilfe employees also become part of the large Klauke family. We believe such a successful combination is a win for everyone.
Klauke supports the Burgholz Youth Hospice
The focus here is very much on promoting facilities that have made it their aim to support families in difficult situations – such as the Burgholz children’s and youth hospice in Wuppertal.
Company on the final journey
The Burgholz hospice supports dying children and young people on their final journey together with their parents, brothers and sisters. The facility allows families, including brothers and sisters, to move into the hospice to be with the sick child. During this time, the relatives are also looked after and offered psychological support.
A place of laughter, hope and sorrow
The carers at the children’s hospice want to create beautiful memories for the families during such a difficult time, and for the place to become a second home to them. And so at the Burgholz hospice, they laugh, play, cry and mourn. “The important thing is that the families don’t incur any extra costs during their time with us. That’s why we are very grateful for Klauke’s financial support”, emphasised Kerstin Wuelfing from the Burgholz hospice.
Klauke employees support the commitment
And the Klauke workforce is also happy to contribute to this great cause. The proceeds from a prize draw at Klauke’s 2015 family festival amounting to 2,500 euros were also donated to the hospice, for example. “We are glad that we can pass on our family philosophy in the form of this commitment too”, says the head of the Klauke HR department, summing up.
