Children daycareBalancing family and working life forms part of the background of demographic trends and the lack of a skilled workforce is one of the major social issues we currently face.
Since 1st August 2008, VKF Renzel has been participating in the company's "FabeLand" working child nursery thanks to sponsorship from the AWO. The acronym FaBe stands for "family and career", and offers parents this opportunity with child care being provided for at the same time.
This gives our employees an advantage when it comes to finding an easy passageway back into work, and therefore allows our company to make use of your know-how as professional craftsmen.
Finding new potential Stem Cell Donors
Together with the German Bone Marrow Donor Center (DKMS) VKF Renzel launched a campain on Nov. 24th 2014 to find new stem cell donors. The goal was to find as many potential life-savers amoungst the VKF Renzel employees as possible. The support from the employe side was enormous and 95 new stem cell donors were found.
In Germany every 16 seconds a person comes down with blood cancer amoung many children or teenagers.
For a large number the transfer of healthy stem cells is the only life saver. Many do not find a suitable donor though.
The registration cost of 50€ per new donor were donated from VKF Renzel to DKMS.
