The wellbeing of our employees and society are important to us. By acting in a socially responsible way, we can improve the quality of life of today’s and future generations.
Social Corporate Responsibility
#falkenfam for a better society
Falken demonstrates its social and societal responsibility
Falken traditionally places considerable emphasis on social responsibility and diversity at the local level. In this context, each year, Falken supports good causes in its local region and is making five 1,000 euros donations to five charities in Offenbach in 2023. The donations are going to the Tafel Offenbach e.V. (food bank), the Tierschutzverein Offenbach (animal welfare charity), the Kinder- und Jugendfarm OF e.V. (charity farm for children and young people), the Frauen helfen Frauen e.V. (women helping women charity), and the Hessische Gesellschaft für Ornithologie und Naturschutz e.V. (charity for bird and nature conservation) (HGON).
National Scholarship Program – we are committed to young talents
“As a company that always wants to perform excellently, we have been delighted to support the students who deserve it according to their results for a few years now,” says Markus Bögner, COO and President of Falken Tyre Europe GmbH. “With the National Scholarship Program, we’re assuming social responsibility in general, and we’re also giving better opportunities to committed young people. We’ve been working very successfully with the university’s students and alumni for a while, so our contribution is not only consistent, but also a contribution to our city of Offenbach.”
Bikes for the #Falkenfam
Falken offers its employees bike leasing options
For a long time now, travel by public transport has been subsidised for Falken employees. In addition, to meet the employees’ desire for a more sustainable and healthier lifestyle, bicycle leasing was introduced. This fits in very well with Falken's comprehensive health programme. As well as other health-promoting measures, the company also provides discounted offers at selected fitness studios, swimming pools and bouldering halls via “qualitrain” for instance.
Benefit for the environment: Flexibility in the workplace
The globally active company SRI has further developed its virtues: as an example of this, Falken Tyre Europe was one of 15 Offenbach companies to receive the “UFF – Family-friendly Company” award in October 2021. The seven-person jury had particular praise for the flexible working hours and opportunities for working from home. In addition to the commendable, creative solutions for balancing family and work at Falken’s facility in Hessen, the motto “Work from home”, which works in practice, also has pleasing benefits for the environment. Ultimately, it’s clear that everyone who doesn’t absolutely have to commute to work every day saves resources, produces fewer CO2 emissions and reduces noise emissions.
