Be a Hero – Make a Difference: Delivery Hero launches Employee Impact Program
“Be a Hero” is one of our core values here at Delivery Hero. It means that we support and care for each other, that we’re taking responsibility, and that we’re committed to making a positive mark in the world. Since so many of our Heroes around the globe have been striving to do something good and meaningful beyond their daily work, our Central Team in Berlin is launching an Employee Impact Program today. Our vision: Be a Hero – Make a Difference.
Hero Month – 31 days, 20 partners, one mission
As part of our broader impact strategy that focuses on giving back, environment, and diversity and inclusion, our Employee Impact Program provides a great opportunity for our Heroes to take an active role in their community and dedicate some time to a cause they are passionate about.
For Hero Month – which will be the month of October in Berlin – we are partnering with more than 20 organizations throughout the city that have a social or environmental focus. 15 of our employees decided to become Volunteer Champions and have been working closely together with our partners to create a great agenda for Hero Month – it’s a program from Heroes for Heroes.
As food brings people together and stands for life, hope and future (and as we are delivering food to millions of people around the world on a daily basis), for Hero Month we will be mainly working with food for giving back to the community: Our mission is to give food to people in need; to reduce food waste; and to educate especially children on healthy eating and sustainable living.
And this is just the beginning. Our first Hero Month in Berlin will be a pilot of the Delivery Hero Employee Impact Program. Of course, we won’t stop after October, but will proceed to have regular opportunities for our employees to give back. In 2019, we will roll out the program to more of our offices worldwide.
Make sure to stay tuned for updates from Hero Month in Berlin as well as from other global impact projects at Delivery Hero!
