Award in Recognition of Commitment to voluntary activities



We are proud of you

There are many very good reasons to volunteer for people, animals and the environment. Our Award in Recognition is one of them, albeit a small one of course. But we want to show that we appreciate all our staff who do voluntary work in their spare time. And there are quite a few of them! As demonstrated by our "Award in Recognition of Commitment to Voluntary Activities", which was launched in 2013. Every year, all VIG employees are asked to nominate colleagues who they know do great unpaid work in their spare time and who are committed to important issues. Finally, the winners will be chosen from among all the nominations.

In 2023 they were colleagues from VIG insurance companies in Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland, Austria, Romania, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. They all do voluntary work for the benefit of their surroundings. The Activities range from supporting cancer patients, providing telephone counselling for children and young people, assisting people with a migration background and elderly people living alone, distributing food to the needy, organizing fundraising campaigns, providing football training for people with special needs, being a member of a volunteer fire brigade, volunteering for disaster relief or taking part in activities for a cleaner environment.

"It is in my nature to help others. Many years ago, I met someone who introduced me to the Association of Blind Athletes. I started by lending them my car. Later, I added more functions such as being a guide during sports events and trips. Basically, I spend all my free time with visually impaired athletes. Why? They are my second family and I am glad when they are happy."
