Team challenges – everyone can make a difference
Around the world, our employees tackle tasks in their local communities, offering direct and individual support to nonprofit institutions and social organizations. Not only financial resources but also helping hands are often needed to make a difference together.
Employee engagement: Plus you – learn how bank employees help society with practical hands-on support
For years, the bank has supported participation in non-profit projects as part of its Team Challenge programme, which is possible through paid leave. This strengthens not only team spirit by bringing entire departments together to work hand in hand.
There are many possibilities to make an impact together. Whether it is renovating local community facilities, mentoring, empowerment of the disenfranchised or assistance for refugees and victims of natural disasters: Bank employees offer effective support.
In many cities and communities in Germany, Deutsche Bank employees help refugees to find their feet. Through local Team Challenges, volunteers prepare temporary accommodation, organize meet-a-friend festivals, cooking and sporting events, assist with bureaucratic formalities, and arrange leisure activities, or collect clothing, toys, and other goods.
In 2015 around 850 projects with social impact were brought to life by 11,113 employees. And over the next 3 years, 1,000 Deutschbanker in Germany will make themselves available as integration coaches for refugees.
“Everyone was thankful for our engagement, which they didn’t expect from a bank.”
