Support & Opportunity: Corporate Citizenship in Education (GoTeach)
Knowledge is the resource of the future – and the only resource that actually multiplies when it is shared. Many of today’s social problems resulting from unfair wealth distribution could be avoided if social systems would intervene earlier to ensure equal access to opportunity.
With our Group-wide GoTeach program, we have made it our responsibility to help improve educational opportunity and employability of young people, especially those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds. Our motivation is twofold. First, as one of the world’s largest employers, we rely on access to skilled and qualified employees around the world. Education is a key factor in determining Deutsche Post DHL’s overall productivity and innovation capacity. GoTeach therefore supports our goal of becoming Employer of Choice. Secondly, in today’s rapidly changing world, education contributes to greater stability and prosperity – both for individuals and for the societies and markets in which we conduct business.
When it comes to our GoTeach activities, our employees share not only their time but their own individual skills and experiences.
