Basel Social Award 2015

People who are limited in their capacities due to social, mental or other health problems have difficulty in finding and securing suitable training or employment. That is why the Canton of Basel-Stadt promotes the professional integration of people with limited capacities. Every year it recognises the exceptional efforts of one to two companies with the Basel Social Award. The prize money worth CHF 10’000 is presented at an awards ceremony.

The Basel Social Award was presented for the first time in 2003. Since then, five companies have been honoured with this award. These companies are active in different industries, ranging from architecture to insurance.

The qualifying criteria for the award would be a company that shows above-average commitment in its training or employment of people who are limited in their capacities due to social, psychological or other health reasons. Also companies that promote special prevention or integration programmes for people who are limited in their capacities through their assignment of orders. The companies can apply themselves, or they can be registered by a third party.

Do you want to register your own company for the competition or do you know of a socially committed company that you would like to put forward for the Basel Social Award?

The invitation to tender for the Basel Social Award 2015 is open until December 31, 2014.
