MET Group believes that knowledge and innovation created by talented staff members are the greatest business asset. Therefore, the company’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) strategy is also focused on talent management.
MET has supported the scholarship program of the Franciscan Order in Hungary for several years, assisting students with outstanding results, as well as teachers involved in helping talented pupils. MET is also among the main sponsors of the Franciscan Christmas Charity Concert, organized every year for an Autism Aid Center in East Hungary.
The company supports the Far-reaching Talent Foundation with the same motivation, providing free talent management programs for schoolchildren aged between 12 and 18, coming from socio-culturally disadvantaged backgrounds. The scholarship program of the Budapest Olympics Movement (BOM), also supported by MET Group, is intended to help the academic advancement of athletes with outstanding achievements. This initiative puts emphasis on education and sports at the same time.
In the area of medical research, MET donated a special Holter-EEG device to a Hungarian research team which has made a breakthrough in diagnosing epilepsy as a concomitant condition of Alzheimer’s disease. Early treatment of epilepsy might slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and help to preserve the quality of life of the affected individuals.
University partnerships established by MET Group seek to attract talents. The company is Global Corporate Partner of CEMS (Community of European Management Schools), a global alliance of 30 leading business schools, 75 multinational companies and NGOs. MET has organized Skill Seminars at renowned European universities (St Gallen University, University of Bath, Budapest Corvinus University).
MET Group Charity activities – at own subsidaries
As a nice tradition, MET Group has been supporting various charity projects and organizations with donations (long life food, good quality clothing, toys, books) from its own colleagues for years now. In 2017 MET launched a whole Charity Week to have enough time and possibility to collect in all subsidaries for specific local organizations. It was a great success, all the donations have found their deserved owners.
