"we care Days" - every year in April
For many years now, our global programs to promote a culture of safety and health have been running under the motto "we care". One highlight are our we care Days, which take place every year around April 28 to mark the World Health and Safety Day.
Communication campaigns, workshop formats and tools for everyday work help to make occupational safety and health issues an intensive topic of discussion directly at our sites.
In 2020, we used the hashtag #strongertogether to call on people around the world to work together through the pandemic and not slacken their efforts to comply with the measures. Because especially during the pandemic and in times of contact restrictions, it is important for us to take care of each other.
For this reason, the motto of the we care Days 2021 was #howareyou. Tools and tips motivated employees to honestly ask themselves and others "How are you?" and deal with the answer. An online participation campaign invited people to try out different things that make us feel good mentally. With feedback from around 40 countries, it was a complete success.
In 2022, the focus is on togetherness in the team. The period of contact restrictions in particular has once again highlighted how important social relationships are. Good cooperation and good interaction with each other have a major impact on health and help to better master tomorrow's challenges. With #bettertogether, we would like to initiate an open dialog about precisely this.
