As a company with operations around the world and an integral part of its local communities, Lufthansa Systems is firmly committed to its responsibilities in this context.
Since all of our community activities focus on people, most of our efforts are directed towards social projects and programs.
Part of honoring our responsibilities involves the organization of regular collections for charities. Public holidays are a good opportunity to raise money for children in need, for example, and even our team-building events tend to focus on promoting a good cause.
One beneficiary of the proceeds is the help alliance – the aid organization of Lufthansa Group. This organization currently handles around 40 projects worldwide, most of which aim to give young people access to education and enable them to live a self-determined life.
In collaboration with the help alliance, the Lufthansa Group organizes the ‘Impact Weeks’, a non–profit program that promotes innovation in emerging countries. The initiative is open to all interested employees in being trained as Design Thinking coaches and providing on-location support for university students. In the past years, several colleagues from Lufthansa Systems have been among the volunteers who supported the initiative and they participated in projects in Rwanda, Colombia, Nepal, Ghana and Jordan.
We are also especially proud of the #active4helpalliance initiative that was launched by a group of our employees.
With this initiative, company management donates ten cents to help alliance for every kilometer chalked up by a Lufthansa Systems employee on their bike or on foot.
And it has proved very popular with staff as a group activity that boosts fitness and team spirit and, above all, means raising money for a good cause. Everyone can make a contribution, large or small, and help honor the company’s community responsibilities while engaging in a sporting activity.
