Courage

Just like a well-functioning company, we also try to solve the emerging problems as effectively and successfully as possible. The continuous reassessment of our activities prompts us to develop new and innovative solutions. . During the past few years we introduced numerous pilot programs and forms of assistance that were not known in Hungary before, including micro-grants, innovative labor market programs and innovative ways of reintegration support for the ones in need. 
The same openness and innovative approach is applied when elaborating CSR programs: we take into account all technological and methodological innovations – that are beneficial both for the company and beneficiaries – to make the cooperation as effective as possible.
