Bringing value to our customers has helped us grow, both as a company and as professionals. We like to share what we have earned. Not just by reinvesting one third of our revenue in new ways to serve our customers. Not just by letting employees join in the profits. But also by giving back to those who deserve a little push.
It’s in our company’s DNA to make people happy. Our charity program is based on the same philosophy. We want to support passionate non-profit organizations to make a difference where it matters. Helping them to create a lasting impact, all for a noble cause.
Charity comes from the heart. It starts from personal commitment. Every year, we invite all employees to submit a charity organization that means a lot to them. We then vote as a team on which projects to allocate our budget to.
A new year is the perfect time to make resolutions and work towards new goals and challenges. Sometimes professional, sometimes personal.
At the start of 2019, CEO Anita Van Looveren challenged our colleagues around the world: “Let’s connect by running together for a good cause”. OMP pledged €20 to charity for every 1 km run at a series of global event, including the Antwerp 10 Miles.
“2019 is the year of connection at OMP,” Anita explains. “That’s why, in addition to our yearly tradition of charity donations, we made a challenge that will bring us together in new ways, making personal connections across the company and having fun at the same time. We hope to raise a lot of money. Imagine, if each of our 500 employees were to run 5km, that would be €50,000 for charity.”
With the OMP Running Challenge, we want to raise money and awareness for missing and exploited children around the world.
Also known as the European Center for Missing and Sexually Exploited Children, Child Focus finds missing, abducted and runaway children and helps sexually abused and exploited children. Additionally, the organization runs projects like Clicksafe, a prevention platform that educates children and young people about safe and responsible internet use.More information
