Connection and involvement of SKB with the community
Care and responsibility towards people and community in which we work and live is one of the basic values of SKB.
Even after joining the Société Générale group, SKB retains its orientation - we are involved in our community, which is shown by various forms of assistance to cultural, sporting and humanitarian organisations and their projects.
We are well aware that success of a company is measured by the success of the community in which it operates. We realise our philosophy of harmony with community by dedicating a part of our generated income as our direct contribution to various social activities – cultural, educational, humanitarian and sporting.
Our social responsibility is reflected in transparent business practise, based on ethical values; we respect life, work and creativity of our employees, closer community and wider social environment. We strive for good interpersonal relationships and healthy and positive environment, so we try to help different associations and individuals with similar values.
By purchasing Gorenjka's doll, SKB in the Sponsorship in Slovenia charity project
In April 2013, we joined the Sponsorship in Slovenia charity project under the auspices of the Friends of Youth Association – Ljubljana Moste Polje and by purchasing Gorenjka's doll we became children's sponsors. We handed out the donation check at the second Festival of Chocolate in Radovljica, visited by 20,000 sweet-toothed fans. We are happy that as sponsors we can provide smiles to children and youngsters in need.
SKB and Cosmopolitan in search of a Cosmo female journalist
At SKB, we also participate in the search for the best individuals. We have thus sponsored the "Cosmo female journalist" multimedia challenge organized by the Cosmopolitan magazine. Five candidates will help co-create the magazine and its website during a 3-month internship. They will acquire new knowledge and extensive journalistic experience and the best candidate will also be rewarded. At the end of the internship, the jury will select the winner among the candidates and she will be employed by the Cosmopolitan magazine.
The candidates visited us at the beginning of the challenge and each of them opened an SKB personal account. To be able to manage their finances also during their fieldwork, we have enabled them free use of Modern banking channels.
SKB for a good cause
In SKB, we began to collect plastic bottle caps in December 2012 on the initiative of the "Never give up" association. By collecting bottle caps, employees will help children with special needs and families who have been down with their luck. By each tonne of collected bottle caps, we will donate 350 EUR for a good case.
Employees of SKB also collected money to help Mladinski center Malči Beličeve (Malci Belic Youth Care Center) within the framework of the SG Talents & Partage association. We helped children in the care center by donating six shower cabins. In the spirit of mutual help, we will continue to raise funds also in 2013 and thus make someone's day more beautiful.
