SIX Social Days

SIX has been conducting a "Social Days" initiative for several years.

Demonstrating commitment and making a difference

Each year, around 200 SIX employees in Switzerland do their bit for society and the environment in collaboration with not-for-profit organizations. There are different projects to choose from. SIX releases the employees concerned from their duties for a day so they can take part. A partnership has been in place with the Philias foundation since 2011 to implement the "Social Days". The foundation establishes contact with the various organizations SIX would like to work with.

Projects that are close to the heart

The projects supported by SIX are devoted to topics that are close to the company's heart. These include, for example, the areas of the environment, integration, the disabled, the needy and the elderly, and children and young people. Through the "Social Days" we want to make a contribution to the ecological and social development of the local and regional community. This year, SIX has maintained and repaired hiking paths in Switzerland, worked side-by-side with the employees of the St. Jakob Foundation workshop for the disabled, and helped socially disadvantaged people create and update their job application documents – to name but a few.

"There is nothing nicer than helping others. I recommend taking part in the "Social Days" wholeheartedly!"

Strengthening existing values

SIX is committed to supporting the community around it. That is why the projects supported by us put people in the centre.
In addition, we want not only to offer our employees a professional environment that opens up new perspectives, but also to encourage them to think beyond their work cubicle and to do their bit for the greater good.
