Dear Schwarzkopf Community,
Beautiful hair is not everything - especially not in times like these. Many of us are struggling with fears and uncertainties and we’re taking your concerns very seriously. This makes it all the more important to keep your body and soul healthy and balanced. It lies at the heart of our company to continue providing you with inspiring articles that are positive. And there is other news we would like to share with you that makes us proud to be part of Henkel:
Henkel is launching a comprehensive global solidarity program to support employees, customers and affected communities. The Fritz Henkel Foundation will donate one million euros to the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund launched by the WHO (World Health Organization) and the United Nations (UN) Foundation.
With a further one million euros, the Fritz Henkel Foundation will directly support various organizations and partners around the world and promote the voluntary engagement of employees in the fight against the crisis.
Henkel is also donating five million body and household products worldwide. These include hand disinfectants, soap, protective clothing, detergents and other cleaning products. Our Corporate Citizenship team will distribute the products in close cooperation with charitable organizations and local authorities to ensure that the supply packages reach those who need them most. Additionally, Henkel will manufacture disinfectants in selected production facilities to support public institutions and professional groups.
In addition, our colleagues from the hairdressing business have launched the "HelpYourSalon.com" platform to support hairdressers and their salons. This platform enables established salons and freelance hair stylists to sell vouchers as well as receive donations. This means that the hairdressing trade can be supported financially even when they can't be open.
Crisis management teams are in place within the company. Their top priority is to ensure the safety of employees and business partners worldwide and to maintain operations under challenging conditions. All information on the solidarity program can be found here:
We are all hoping that the situation will improve - let's be strong and optimistic together. Stay healthy and confident!
Your Schwarzkopf Team
