Corporate Citizenship

Social engagement is part of our sense of responsibility and firmly embedded in our corporate values.

Social engagement – or corporate citizenship – has always been an integral part of our sense of responsibility as a company. This is a tradition that dates back to our founder, Fritz Henkel, and is firmly embedded in our corporate values. Together with our employees, retirees, customers and consumers, Henkel and the Fritz Henkel Stiftung are able to support sustainable social projects around the world. They both support activities in the areas of social needs, education and science, fitness and health, arts and culture, and the environment. 

Corporate Volunteering: Voluntary social engagement of our employees and retirees

Social Partnerships: Henkel as a company promoting social projects around the world

Corporate Citizenship in North America

Employees from Henkel in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, were there to cheer on and assist athletes in both the winter and summer games hosted by the Special Olympics of Connecticut (SOCT) in 2015. Henkel employees helped at the hand-washing station during the winter games. During the summer games, they took over the roles of marshals, lane judges and result runners during the cycling competition. Over 3,000 athletes participated during both games, which Henkel supported as a sponsor. 

During the opening ceremonies of both games, the SOCT honored Henkel’s company sponsorship and participation with a plaque. “It was rewarding for all of us involved, and a great way to extend Henkel’s reach into our community,” says Mike Shannahan, who helped during both events and accepted the plaque on the company’s behalf.

The Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Founded in 1968, Special Olympics provides year-round training and competitions to more than 4.4 million athletes in 170 countries. 

Henkel North America supported over 65 MIT projects and donated to over 400 charities in 2014. Employees participated in over 30 team volunteer activities! That’s passion!

Henkel employee Duane Hinkson supported the organization ParaDYM (Paraprofessionals in Digital Youth Media). In collaboration with schools and organizations, ParaDYM develops programs that promote media literacy for children and youths in the Hartford, Connecticut area.
