Postmaterialism policyEdit

IntroductionEdit

The postmaterialism policy has the intent to make a postmaterialist attitude an educational goal. The goal is, of course, not to brain wash an employee into becoming a convinced and consequent postmaterialist, but to motivate the employees as a group to consider a postmaterialist attitude and also to encourage philosophical dispute.

DonationsEdit

  1. The employer should recommend an adequate donation level of employees (e.g. in relation to church tax), either on salary statements or similar communications.
  2. The employer should educate employees about sensible donation opportunities and donation goals and invite employees to make donations regularly or systematically.
  3. The employer should set an example and donate to worthy causes and inform the employees about donations made by the employer.
  4. The employer should not collect donations inside the company but leave that to certified organizations.

Educational measuresEdit

  1. The employer should offer continuing education for the topics corporate social responsibility, corporate volunteering and postmaterialism.
  2. Employees should be invited to choose these educational offers and not to see other educational measures as generally more career-enhancing.

Corporate citizenshipEdit

  1. The employer should set an example and implement a corporate volunteering policy.
