Hays' relationship to the wider community has always been a cornerstone of our corporate strategy, because our business model supports organisations in finding the right staff for their needs. But our focus is not just corporate: we also help individuals find the right stepping stones along their particular career paths.
We are also very aware that our responsibilities extend beyond our immediate business activities. Even though our environmental impact as a personnel services provider is limited, we take great care in protecting the environment by saving energy and making concerted efforts to reduce pollution. For years now we have also helped support organisations for children with cancer, directly linking the amount of financial support to our business success: for every successful job placement we carry out we donate 10 euros to charity.
Hays Austria has once again contributed to the annual Island Camps by making a €6,000 donation in 2017.
For Island Camp 16-20, Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe brings together current and former young patients between the ages of 16 and 20 so that they can exchange their views and feelings about cancer in a safe and protected environment.
Another central theme at Island Camp 16-20 is the topic of growing up with its many facets as well as progressing towards independence. By engaging in numerous sporting activities, the participants get to test their physical limits and learn to cope with the limitations that their therapies and illness can impose upon them.

For many years now we have been supporting the psychosocial aftercare youth camps run by the Austrian children's cancer charity, Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe. There, those affected by cancer receive the courage and strength needed to cope with life after suffering with this terrible disease.
These camps, of which there are four each year, are for children and young adults between the ages of 8 and 20 who are living with cancer.
Under the professional care of a team of psychotherapists, teachers and psychologists, those affected can recover while being helped to deal with their cancer. The dedicated staff support participants in areas such as regaining and strengthening their self-confidence, discussing their illness with other campers and helping them prepare for their return to a normal life.
