Donations over flowers
At VDI Wissensforum, employees have embraced the principle that giving is more gratifying than receiving. That’s why they collectively decided to forgo the usual birthday bouquet. The money saved will be donated to charitable causes. Management was thrilled by this idea and even topped up the donation amount. “The focus of our donations was on supporting and educating the young, as this is very close to our hearts,” says CEO Timo Taubitz. Three different organizations have now received a total donation of €3,000 from VDI Wissensforum.
