Social accountability

Taking responsibility

We place considerable value on an atmosphere based on partnership, both in our customer relationships and in our daily contacts with each other. That's why our conduct within the company is shaped by a friendly, open and responsible climate.

We carry these guidelines within us and use them in many ways. In our home region, the Neckar-Odenwald-district, for some considerable time we have been focusing on the targeted promotion of young professionals. Five training places, for example for mechatronics, technicians or draughtsmen, are filled every year. Beyond this, we have a long-standing partnership with the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Mosbach in the field of Business Administration (BA).

At the same time hawo sees itself as part of the broader picture. That is why we are actively involved in improving hygiene standards around the world—for example in Cambodia, Peru and the Ukraine. In each of these countries we have donated entire work stations for the packaging of sterile goods, to help prevent infections. hawo is actively engaged in the training of staff in the projects to achieve a functioning sterile supply in the long term. And it was for this reason that hawo has been awarded the LEA title “Socially committed repeatedly in recent years”.

The award for social responsibility among small and medium-sized businesses in Baden-Württemberg, Leistung-Engagement-Anerkennung (LEA), is an acknowledgement of voluntary engagement above and beyond the immediate business activity.
