ABOUT US

The question of responsibility for people and systems will occupy us in the future more than ever before. Those, who would like to make socio-political change, must act and provide their own impulses. It is of vital importance to offer solutions for people and to build networks with strong partners. This in particular applies to the issue of developing the following generations, which is of great importance, as they will shape our future. As a charitable institution, it is the aim of the ICA Foundation to pave the way for and open opportunities for as many people as possible. For people, who bring potential and engagement and need our support.

Developing the next generation and gaining new employees are highly relevant social issues, which no organisation can overlook anymore. The ICA Foundation provides you with the opportunity to give a signal for the sustainable support of talents. Become a part of this movement and go down this road together with us. With your support, we can shape the future and provide the skilled professionals within our branch the necessary strengths and confidence.

Now is the time, which we will later describe as a turning point. Our kitchens and our organisations need people who enjoy doing what they do and who are good at it. They need people with potential, who use their talent and
find the best possible environment ready for them to do this.

„The right way for the future“

Shortly after their establishment, the ICA Foundation was already able to gain reputable members of their advisory board. What motivates them and why do they dedicate themselves to this? Three questions for Adrienne Axler.

MS AXLER, YOU BELONG TO THE FIRST MEMBERS OF THE FOUNDATION’S ADVISORY BOARD, WHICH IS ACTIVE IN THE ICA FOUNDATION. WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO DO THIS SO EARLY ON?

In principle, I always decide very quickly, when I am convinced by something. In the case of the ICA Foundation, it was already clear to me early on that this initiative is on the right path. I say this out of personal conviction, as well as from the viewpoint of the company, Sodexo, which I represent.

Our future is in the hands of our youth and it is immensely important that we create the right
conditions for that now. The company Sodexo shares the vision of the foundation to improve the quality of life in our branch, to offer equal opportunities and to provide good basic conditions.

WHICH EXPECTATIONS AND HOPES DO YOU HAVE FOR THE ICA FOUNDATION?

I prefer to sit at the wheel, rather than be a passenger. Therefore, it is of personal importance to me to be involved from the beginning onwards and to use the opportunities to participate. Aside from active involvement, I hope that the work of the ICA Foundation is good for our company and that a win-win relationship can be established from our cooperation.

HOW WILL YOU USE YOUR ACTIVITY IN THE FOUNDATION FOR YOUR COMPANY?

Sodexo would like to position itself as a partner of the foundation, in order to increase our
attractiveness. However, this does not only succeed through visibility and relevant branding. It is the employees who embody the ideas of the foundation. People, to whom we provide the opportunity to get their foot in the door of our industry, or to develop themselves further within it. We very much appreciate the high level of engagement of Gerhard Bruder and the ICA in valuing and making our work known. The more we actively convey the enthusiasm and passion for gastronomy together, the higher are our chances.
