Live a dream

This programme will give employees the opportunity to donate a week of their holiday to do voluntary work for people in need.

support for community projects

Community support

The VKR Group aspires to make a contribution to the communities that its companies operate in. This is why our support is aimed at projects in the vicinity of VKR Group companies.

It means that the Employee Foundation may grant funding to applications from non-profit clubs, associations and other organisations based within a distance of up to 50 km of a company within the VKR Group.

We give priority to projects with lasting impact and value, and give preference to projects linked to employees of the VKR Group. To be eligible, there is no requirement to have worked for the VKR Group for a certain period of time.

Healthy Habits 2022


When we are at work, we follow the company’s safety guidelines so that we do not get hurt or hurt others. But when we leave the workplace, we often forget to take those good safety habits with us. And the fact is that most accidents happen in our own homes.
