Supporting our Local Communities
ERIKS employees work hard to support local charities and good causes and we are proud to support them.
In 2019, ERIKS Belgium started a new program that allows employees to donate half a day of their paid work time to charity. Employees can select from a range of charities through the Time4Society program that has been running since 2008. The response to the program was really inspiring, with 100 employees taking part supporting many different causes. The program has been so successful that Karin Winnepenninckx, ERIKS Belgium’s Sustainability Champion and HSEQ Manager is looking forward to it running again in 2020.
ERIKS Singapore partnered with the ‘Joy in every bundle’ campaign, an initiative run by Food Bank Singapore and Fei Yue SAC that delivers food to those in need. Our employees got involved at every stage of the campaign, including contributing food, packing and delivering the bundles.
ERIKS Shanghai volunteered to repair and repaint the walls of the school playground. The project aimed to create an inspiring learning environment for the Songjiang Auxiliary School in Shanghai, China.
