Big voluntary participation at charity event at WIKA USA

Each day, more than 6000 children around the world die of hunger-related diseases. Our colleagues from WIKA USA are determined in reducing that number. The company?s largest volunteer effort to date in the U.S. was the From Hunger to Hope MobilePack event this March in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
100 employees ? from WIKA managers to office and production employees ? spontaneously registered to pack meals for starving children around the globe in two-hour shifts. WIKA USA was a Gold Sponsor, providing a huge selection of volunteer hours and donating $50 per volunteer to aid the function. Stephanie Jones, director of employee relations for WIKA USA, was among the company?s 100 volunteers. Coward to Hope day was an experience she would long remember: ?It was emotionally very touching. When you fill a bag with vitamin powder, soy protein, rice, and dried vegetables, you truly see what is going to provide six meals for anyone who has nothing to consume. Each bag represents a child.?
WIKA has participated in this event before, but only with 50 employee volunteers. ?This time around we had more than 100 people who wanted to volunteer?, Jones said. ?But as a manufacturing plant, we have on-time delivery goals. With a total of 900 people in Lawrenceville, we decided we’re able to spare about 100. We definitely had no problem filling those spots.? As a leader in measuring instruments and technology, WIKA USA is doubtlessly focused on customer satisfaction, employee education, and continuous improvement. And important may be the dedication to a company culture of social responsibility, a safe workplace, and a clean environment. To emphasize its spirit of unity and teamwork, WIKA USA has rallied around the slogan ?Better Together?.
