DANX Carousel group launches a new foundation to support employee development, charitable causes and local projects
As a group, we believe that it is important to give back to the communities we serve, and with this initiative, we are committed to making a positive difference and driving societal change.
The purpose of the DANX Carousel Foundation is to promote the positive social impact of the DANX Carousel group – both within our business and the near communities. The projects and activities supported in the foundation will be based on and promote the group’s three values: Caring, Learning, and Ownership – with a particular emphasis on the values of Caring and Learning.
The foundation’s focus will be on supporting learning and development initiatives as well as charitable causes and local projects in the communities where the group operates.
Learning and development
Providing the best circumstances for learning and development is something we see as vital – especially in order to strengthening our own workforce and to continuously provide high standards when it comes to our services.
With the DANX Carousel Foundation we will support different learning and development opportunities for the group’s employees. These will be either directly related to the specific role of the employee or be training that serves as a steppingstone for developing into a new role. The foundation will also support external talents that are:
- Directly linked to DANX Carousel employees through family
- Are working within the logistics industry, or
- Are connected to DANX Carousel as subcontractors/independent hauliers
Community support and donations
As a European logistics specialist that operates in many different geographical areas, we see it as natural to support the local communities where we are present and give back to the people who support us. Besides providing funds for different forms of learning, the DANX Carousel Foundation will also support charitable causes and local projects in the communities we operate in.
The focus will be on promoting relevant causes within i.e. diversity and inclusion and positive social impact – aligning this with our value of Caring as well as our work with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Every year the foundation will select one larger charity to partner with and work with for a longer period of time.
Malene Vig Hjarnaa, Chair of the Board of the DANX Carousel Foundation comments on the launch of the initiative: “The DANX Carousel group takes great pride in being a company that values giving back – both to our employees but also the local communities and broader society. The launch of the DANX Carousel Foundation is a great example of that and something we are very proud to be able to do.
The foundation will be the focal point for our efforts related to charitable causes and we look forward to being able to have a positive social impact and make a change in the communities we serve.”
