Find a way to empower employees to make a positive impact – and enable them to measure it.
More and more people are looking for a meaningful job and a fulfilling career.
They want to contribute to something greater than “just a job” – something that is bigger than them. But how will they ever feel that they’re making a big difference? How could they measure their impact? What would that kind of job look like in a big company? How, as a part of a big system, would employees be able to tell that their work matters?
That’s what Do School next Entrepreneurship for Good Program: The Future of Work Challenge is all about. Posed by H&M Germany, the Challenge invites you and 19 other young entrepreneurs to spend 10 weeks on campus in Berlin. After that, you’ll move on to implement your own venture over the course of the next 10 months.
H&M’s business concept is to offer fashion and quality at the best price in a sustainable way. Since it was founded in 1947, H&M has grown from a single women’s wear store in Västerås, Sweden into one of the world’s leading fashion companies, with six different brands, around 3,900 stores, and 132,000 employees in 61 markets.
H&M’s business operations aim to be run in a way that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable for both present and future generations. H&M has a responsibility towards everyone who contributes to their success, including those who are not employees of H&M.
