Going beyond business
At uQualize+ we are committed to making a contribution to the community and to society. We organize and participate in yearly charitable events, and sometimes complete consulting projects and trainings on a pro bono basis. This space is dedicated to news and information related to our corporate social responsibility activities and other initiatives.
Pro Bono Work for Medair 2017
Medair is a humanitarian organization inspired by Christian faith to relieve human suffering in some of the world’s most remote and devastated places. One of our colleagues spent one week with Medair in Jordan on a pro bono project with the aim to improve the inventory and stock process of medications at a local site. The project focus was to improve the accuracy and timeliness of the processes. After project closure, we remained in touch. Half a year later, uQualize+ was happy to learn that the improvements were continued and hope these will be maintained in the future.
Pro Bono Work for World Vision 2015 /2016
Pulling up the roots of poverty and planting the seeds of change is what the NGO World Vision constantly works on. In 2016, one of our colleagues spent a pro bono week in Kinshasa/Congo to deliver Lean for a World Vision group of 40 persons. The focus of the improvement was around the child sponsorship process which ensured that the sponsors continuously received feedback with information and pictures of the child they were financially supporting. This type of feedback keeps everybody engaged and ensures that the sponsor can see the effect of the donated money.
During the previous year, another pro bono week resulted in a Lean training for 40 participants in Dakar /Senegal which focused on the improvement of the ordering process for aid goods.
In pro bono projects, uQualize+ provides resources and knowledge free of charge. The employees who want to contribute on a voluntary basis get additional holidays granted.
Company Charity Triathlon 2015
We did it again: A charity triathlon! Doing sports together, having a good time and getting to know your colleagues better was the motivation for this year´s team event which took place in Bad Aussee. Another motivation was contributing to something greater by producing an incredible number of joint triathlon kilometers which got “translated” into a 4.113.- Euro donation. The beneficiary is for the second time ”Die Möwe”. This organization helps children who are victims of domestic violence. With the raised amount of money one child can receive therapy treatments for approx. 2 years. For more information please visit the MÖWE webpage.
