/About us/Our commitment
are not only topics tackled within the consulting services that we provide to our clients. At pro.mara consulting, we are committed to contributing to the society in which we live – as a company as well as personally.
represent the basis of our Pro Bono work, which is an inherent part of our company philosophy and our people development processes.
Since 2009, we have been supporting startsocial – a German business plan competition for charities under the patronage of the German chancellor. Apart from Pro Bono consulting, we are supporting the competition with presentations and articles for startsocial publications and events.
Internal company events regularly comprise a volunteering aspect. For example, prior to our 2012 Christmas dinner, we helped a kindergarten in Hamburg to clear out their attic.
In 2010 and 2011 we also supported the Social Café in Hamburg, for example with a workshop on Social Impact Measurement and personal coaching for two social initiatives – Mentor and filmteam Hamburg.
We also spoke at the CSR weekends of Mannheim University and in a seminar on values research at Hamburg University. Furthermore, we regularly donate part of our revenues to social initiatives.
is a natural part of our business operations. Even as a young company, it is important to set priorities within the sometimes conflicting goals of the triple bottom line contributing to economic, environmental and social development.
Economic stability and people development are top priorities for us as a young and dynamically growing company. Our team consists of full-time and freelancing consultants. This provides us with the flexibility to adapt to a growing client base as well as to the needs of our individual team members. An appropriate compensation, attractive development opportunities and flexible work arrangements are characteristic for our work environment.
Regarding environmental responsibility, we pay attention to buying FSC certified paper and to avoiding unnecessary waste. As a consultancy, intense business travel is part of our everyday life. Wherever feasible, we try to reduce our business travel. However, in favor of an appropriate work-life-balance, we leave it up to our employees, which mode of transportation they choose to take.
