How We Get Involved at Our Locations

Employees are given two days per year to support social projects that are important to them.

We want to get actively involved in our locations’ local neighborhoods. We are convinced that it is not only the community that benefits from our involvement, but also Zalando as a company. All our employees can spend two days per year volunteering at local projects of their choice.

In volunteering projects, our employees can try their hand in a new environment and make a difference together.

This Commitment Sets Zalando Apart

This commitment is only beneficial if it brings value to the supported projects. To ensure the quality and efficacy of our engagement, we have teamed up with the social business, Vostel. This social start-up specializes in organizing and supporting meaningful voluntary activities. Vostel acts as an advocate for the projects we support, performs needs analyses and provides project partners with regular feedback loops. Only in this way can all sides really benefit from volunteering support.

In 2018, 1,158 employees provided support for 91 initiatives in 1,302 shifts.
