Company Social responsibility

Motor Presse Stuttgart supports social involvement by its employees

Within the framework of its “MPS helps!” programme and in the form of free time and funding, Motor Presse Stuttgart supports employees and management personnel who are actively involved in helping people in need. Whether homework supervision, addiction support, involvement in the railway mission or courier trips on a voluntary basis for reading promotion projects – within the framework of “MPS helps!”, a wide variety of activities are possible for personal dedication by Motor Presse employees. This can also take the form of employees making their professional skills available to social facilities or projects.

More than ten years of engagement for the non-profit company “eva”

Motor Presse Stuttgart supports eva (Evangelische Gesellschaft Menschen) which has the goal of enabling people to live dignified lives and alleviating hardship. A goal which Motor Presse Stuttgart has been promoting with monetary donations for more than ten years.
Whether cake sales by trainees or menu vouchers including voluntary donations in the canteen: this financial support comprises the proceeds of numerous minor and major campaigns by employees. The money collected primarily benefits two projects by the non-profit organisation: “eva’s Tisch” and “Wärmestube”. The former provides around 100 people in need with a filling and inexpensive daily meal. The “Wärmestube” (warm room) offers homeless people a place where they feel welcome and can spend several hours of the day in the company of others.

Refugee aid initiatives

This initiative launched by employees at Motor Presse Stuttgart helps in the integration of refugees by means of various projects over the short, medium and long term. The proceeds of numerous in-house campaigns permit direct and immediate material aid. But this is only one aspect of the employee initiative. The focus is on medium- and long-term collaboration with local refugee accommodation services in an effort to provide inhabitants of these facilities with specific integration assistance.

Sustainable disposal of electrical equipment

Motor Presse Stuttgart collaborates with the AfB (Arbeit für Menschen mit Behinderung - work for people with disabilities) in disposing of its electrical equipment. As Europe’s first non-profit IT organisation, the AfB specialises in accepting obsolete IT hardware from companies, certifiably deleting data and recycling it for re-use. This process conserves natural resources and reduces emissions. Another feature of the concept is its inclusion of disabled people. Furthermore, with the aid of these recycled IT devices, people with less money to spend are also given an opportunity to access modern IT hardware.
