Social commitment from GSE PROTECT
During the course of its 40-year history, GSE PROTECT has not only made its mark as a leading provider of high-quality security services, but is also active in the area of “Corporate Social Responsibility”.
The network “Corporation - YouthPartner”(UPJ e.V.) works primarily in projects helping to solve social problems, by creating new links between companies, non-profit organisations and public administration bodies. GSE PROTECT focuses on the following areas:
Round Table “Youth and Economy” is a network and a platform for socially engaged companies in Brandenburg, operating under the patronage of the Brandenburg State Premier. The participating corporate representatives meet regularly, share their experiences and initiate exemplary corporate citizenship projects in their region.
The goal of the “Service Learning” project is to let students learn about the concept of public welfare, acquire economic skills and promote democratic concepts, as well as developing a sense of responsibility and making them aware of social issues. This project is special since the teaching methods allow students to link social commitment with subject-related learning. GSE PROTECT gives employees time off on a regular basis to accompany students from the Oberlinhaus school and a Potsdam comprehensive school during integrative field days.
In April 2013, GSE PROTECT signed a cooperation agreement with the coordinator of the State Government for the “Tolerant Brandenburg” action plan. Both partners agree to work together for a strong, active democracy using the action plan as a basis, as well as opposing all forms of right-wing extremism, racism and hostility towards foreigners.
