CASE STUDY: Corporate voluntary work

Our Corporate Voluntary Work Plan provides an effective solution for those workers and member-friends committed to resolving social problems.

Values education makes us grow as persons, and is a key element within Eroski's training policy. Given this, our Corporate Voluntary Work Plan, aimed at all workers and at Fundación Eroski member-friends, provides an effective solution for those committed to resolving social problems.

This initiative, promoted by the Eroski Healthy Idea and started in summer 2005, aims to become a link to establish stronger relations between customers, workers and the NGOs with which we work. Thanks to this programme, member-friends and workers so wishing can share their holidays with the most needy, visiting on-site some of the programmes of the NGOs with which we work most closely.

The Fundación Eroski assumes the cost of the trip of those selected for the voluntary work and the accommodation costs are borne by our partner NGOs.

In 2005, two workers spent their summer holidays in Peru helping the NGO Federación Niños del Mundo. In 2006, nine workers and Fundación Eroski member-friends spent three weeks of the holiday period carrying out voluntary work.

From 2007, we have extended the Voluntary Work Programme to include environmental concerns. Our workers will now have the chance to work helping the conservation organisation SEO/BirdLife for one or two weeks during the Easter or summer holiday periods in natural spaces of great environmental importance:

  • The Doñana National Park (Huelva).
  • The Tablas de Daimiel National Park (Ciudad Real).
  • The Alto Tajo Natural Park (Guadalajara).
  • The Delta del Ebro Natural Park (Tarragona).
  • The Santoña Marshes Nature Reserve (Santander).
