WOM is aware of its responsibility as a company. The fact that we are a medium-sized company with not even 500 employees around the world does not stop us from orienting our strategies and activities according to the principles of a sustainable global economy. Rather, it is important to us to set an example and lead by example – even on a small scale. This is fully in line with our principles of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), which have become an important part of our entrepreneurial thinking and acting.
When terms such as pin shot, jet or snake technology are soon being thrown around at WOM, it is not about the latest medical technology developments but simply the most important football shooting techniques. “Foosball” tables have arrived at the Ludwigsstadt and Berlin sites. But this is not all about having fun during breaks. The collected game money is doubled at the end of the month by the company and donated to the charity BigShoe e.V. from the Allgäu.
Since 2014 WOM supports the charity project BigShoe e.V. from the Allgäu region and is a sponsor of the registered association. BigShoe charity activities have become an important part of the CSR concept of the company. Hertha BSC Berlin, a long time supporter of the charity as well, presented three signed Hertha jerseys to raffle off to the employees in Germany, Hong Kong, and the U.S.
The excitement was great during the preparations for four children of our WOM employees to interview Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière concerning the aid initiative BigShoe.
