FOR VAPIANISTI AND THEIR FAMILIES IN TIMES OF NEED
VAPIANO establishes 'V-CARE' social fund for employees
VAPIANO has created its own social fund which in the future will provide support to Vapianisti in times of need through no fault of their own.
"Accepting responsibility and actively caring are values that are firmly entrenched in our Vapiano family culture" stresses Jochen Halfmann, CEO of Vapiano SE, in presenting the 'V-Care' plan.
It is not just the company's employees worldwide who will receive support from the social fund. Their partner or children will also benefit if they are in need through no fault of their own and are unable to support themselves financially. To give the option for contact to be anonymous, for some time now there has been an ombudsman at VAPIANO who is bound by a duty of confidentiality. The allocation of funds is decided quickly and non-bureaucratically by a specially composed committee comprising Human Resources, Finance and the operational business, the aim being to provide immediate support in the event of extreme misfortune such as long-term illness, serious accident, and flood, storm or fire damage.
The company has provided spontaneous financial assistance in such emergency situations in the past. With the V-CARE social fund, there is now a tool in place that will enable VAPIANO to act more quickly and directly.
With one aim:
