Around 70,000 employees in the Lufthansa Group’s joint accounting system can now join the voluntary donation scheme in a first step. The desired amount is then automatically deducted from the net salary and transferred to help alliance at the end of the month. Whichever option an employee chooses from the five available, be it the spare cents donation or the maximum amount of 15 euros, the donation will help improve the prospects of people around the world.
“What’s important about Payroll Giving is not the donation amount, but rather the sum of participants. The more employees join the scheme, the more of a difference we can make together”, says Bettina Volkens, Chief Officer Corporate Human Resources and Legal Affairs, and Jürgen Jennerke, Chairman of the Lufthansa Group Works Council. Lufthansa is the ninth of 30 DAX companies to introduce the voluntary donation scheme.
