It offers employees a chance to learn new skills and experience civic engagement. Paul Ypinga emphasizes, "Doing good makes you happy."

Strengthening group spirit: Team experience with depth

Volunteering not only contributes to individual satisfaction, but also strengthens the group feeling within a company. Emile Peels, former director of ABC E Business, shares his experience: "People know how to find each other better on the shop floor afterwards. Meaning something together has added value."

Together for Eindhoven makes it easy for companies, large and small, to make a difference. With activities like "Warm a Heart, Give a Coat," they offer opportunities for involvement. Emile Peels concludes, "Whether you're a big or small company, if you want to, something is always possible."
