Honoured for social responsibility by Minister of Trade and Commerce and Caritas
Certificate "socially engaged 2009" for the manufacturer of the Walser dental matrices, Dr. Walser Dental, awarded by the patrons Minister of Trade and Commerce Ernst Pfister and bishop Dr. Gebhard Fürst.
The owner of the Dr. Walser Dental GmbH in Radolfzell, Senator h.c. Gerhard R. Daiger, was honoured at the 16.06.2009 for the engagement which is voluntary and going beyond the real business activity in the context of a solemn ceremony in the house of the economy in Stuttgart in front of more than 400 invited guests out of economy, politics and church.
The SME Award for social responsibility in Baden-Württemberg is accompanied scientifically by the Institute for Social Marketing in Stuttgart and is a project of Caritas in partnership with the Ministry of Trade and Commerce Baden-Württemberg. An eleven-man jury whose occupation consisted of "high-carat personalities from economy and society" decided on the prize-winners. Under the name "LEA - performance - engagement - recognition" the voluntary social engagement of medium-sized enterprises became deemed worthy and moved in the focus of the attention in this evening.
Mentioned were projects of enterprises, who contribute together with a welfare association, a social organisation, initiative or facilities for the solution of public and social problem definitions in the areas of work and education, integration, family as well as culture and sports. So Gerhard R. Daiger, the managing director of the Dr. Walser Dental, shows commitment for over 16 years for independent, founders of a new business and unemployed for free.
For him it is primarily about the protection of the families; entrepreneurs get fast into financial difficulties by erroneous decisions as well as order and payment failures. The family suffers from it enormously. He gives valuable supports in the corporate management and safeguarding.
