Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe e.V., Ravensburg, has suggested the ifm group of companies for the award as volunteer-friendly employer. The certificate was presented ceremoniously on 26 September 2018.
The ifm group had rendered outstanding service in the field of voluntary commitment in civil protection, reasoned Johanniter Unfallhilfe e.V.
Mr Thomas Strobl, Deputy Minister-President and Minister of the Interior, Digitalisation and Migration, in person presented the reward in the context of a ceremony in the large assembly hall of the local government building for the district Schwarzwald-Baar in Villingen-Schwenningen on Wednesday, 26 September 2018 at 20:00 h.
It is of special importance to the state of Baden-Württemberg to recognise and promote the support of volunteers by the employer. Therefore the Minister of the Interior yearly awards volunteer-friendly employers providing outstanding support to committed helpers with their voluntary work in civil protection. ifm does not only release committed employees when they are needed for their voluntary work right away but also provides them with special parking lots so that they can reach the scene as quickly as possible.
