Besides safety advisors, all employees can use RiskReporter. By giving your colleagues the tools to report what they see, you empower them, and enhance safety awareness too. Plus, Wolters Kluwer can even provide you with the campaign material to facilitate the roll out of RiskReporter in your company.
HOPE: Promoting Financial Literacy
Our community investments are long-term partnerships between Wolters Kluwer and local organizations that help improve the quality of life in a targeted community. One example is our Governance, Risk & Compliance division’s long-standing partnership with non-profit Operation HOPE in the United States.
HOPE’s ongoing mission is silver rights empowerment, making free enterprise work for everyone. As ‘the’ nonprofit private banker for the working poor, the underserved, and struggling middle class, their goal is to be a best-in-class provider of financial literacy empowerment for youth and financial capability for communities.
Over the years our GRC division has been happy and proud to help by providing products, knowledge and leadership in various programs such as the ‘Banking on Our Future’ initiative. To date, this program has reached over 910,000 students in more than 3,176 schools and community-based organizations in the United States and South Africa. You can follow OperationHope on twitter or check out the HOPE video over on YouTube.

Our Company values and sustainability strategy are deeply intertwined. In 2016, we renewed our values to help us become a more tightly knit ‘One Wolters Kluwer’ with a common global culture. But it appears that employees from our Tax & Accounting offices in Germany and Spain were one step ahead of us.
Last year, in their free time, led by Jens Riebeseel, a manager at Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting Germany, a team from Spain and Germany embarked on an amazing journey to build camaraderie, and challenge themselves to the limits of what they thought possible.
The goal they set for themselves: to compete in, and complete, the notorious Marathon des Sables (Sand Marathon)—the ‘Toughest Footrace on Earth’.
Together, they spent six days under a scorching desert sun, hiking for more than 24 hours over the rugged Saharan terrain. Get an impression of their incredible journey:
