2016 Corporate Responsibility Report

Support for refugees

In view of the massive challenges involved in aid work for refugees, our Board of Management set up its own task force in August 2015. It pools our various aid programs in Germany to ensure that support can be provided faster and with less red tape. In 2016, up to 100 intern positions and about the same number of apprentice positions have been filled with refugees. Deutsche Telekom employees also initiated over 100 corporate volunteering projects. Further information is available here.
