Henkel supports the volunteer projects of its employees and retirees through the ‘Make an Impact on Tomorrow’ (MIT) initiative. MIT projects related to education and science, health and fitness, art and culture, and social issues and the environment are especially encouraged. Employees and retirees can apply for donations in kind or product donations for their specific project, or for special paid leave for time-consuming voluntary engagements.

Capturing the best moments
Taking place for the tenth time, the MIT photo competition at Henkel showcased stunning photos, ranging from volunteering at an orphanage in Uganda to developing sustainable villages in India. Henkel employees and retirees from 28 countries around the globe have actively contributed and submitted 125 photos from their MIT projects.
In the photo competition, employees could vote for their favorites among the submitted photos. “This year we have received more photos than ever before. They impressively show how much blood, sweat and tears are behind each picture. At the same time each photo gives a personal insight into the project”, says Nadine Frey from the Corporate Citizenship team. Each one of the winning projects will be supported with 500 euros by the “Fritz Henkel Stiftung” foundation.
