  • Vodafone supports employee engagement and fills the donation pool for creative ideas
  • Donation amount: 56,000 euros to 20 national aid organizations
  • This fundraising campaign is unique in Germany

Düsseldorf, April 12, 2022. Collect ideas and therefore raise money for a good cause – sounds like a fantasy? Not with Vodafone. At Düsseldorf Communications Group, flashes of inspiration pay off twice: for the company and for good reason! Thanks to Innovative Idea Management, approximately 16,000 employees had the opportunity to provide ideas and suggestions for day-to-day work, products or customer service throughout the fiscal year. About 1,300 payments were received in the last fiscal year. And it is precisely this process that makes Vodafone’s donation pool for social enterprises swell. Supporting the commitment of its employees, Vodafone has now been able to deliver around €56,000 to 20 relief organizations across the country. This also includes the children’s home in Munich, which is now subsidized with €2,800 for a good cause.

This fundraising campaign is unique in Germany: when Vodafone employees submit a proposal to improve the company’s idea management system, an in-house expert deals with a flash of inspiration. Prepares a report in which the usefulness of the idea is accurately evaluated. If the report is prepared within 14 days, Vodafone will pay a fee into the reporter’s donation pool as an acknowledgment step. This incentive leads to the fact that many good ideas of employees are evaluated immediately and perfectly as well. Above all, such large sums are raised for good reason. In the last financial year 2020/2021, an impressive amount of €56,000 was reached. Now this expert donation pot will be distributed.
