Henkel Ibérica’s initiative for a charitable purpose

Employees in Spain and Portugal “moved with heart”

Raising the employees’ awareness about the importance of having a healthy lifestyle – both at work and at home – while contributing to a charitable purpose: that’s what Henkel Ibérica’s initiative #Wemovewithheart was all about. Employees in Spain and Portugal were invited to join a variety of activities – from a relaxing yoga session to an intense Zumba class. For each employee participating, Henkel Ibérica donated two euros to a regional social organization.

The “smiling” heart

And the result of the successful initiative: The “smiling” heart created through the team efforts.

Henkel Ibérica celebrated the World Day for Health & Safety at Work, and about 750 employees from different locations in Spain and Portugal joined the activities. The highlight of the day followed the slogan #Wemovewithheart: Each participant got a heart-shaped magnet which formed a giant heart together with the colleagues’ pieces.

The sum raised will be donated to the Volumont Association in Montornès del Vallès, a regional social organization supporting projects such as delivering food to people at risk of social exclusion or assistance to dependents. The association is located in an area in which Henkel has been present for more than 50 years now.
