The intranet platform aims at providing interaction, co-creation, collaboration and engagement concepts to answer the technological developments and expectations of the Generation Y.

According to Roche Head of Corporate Communications Stephan Feldhaus’ vision: “Every day RocheNet gives each employee world-wide a single point of access to the information, applications and expertise they need in order to make decisions that will support the achievement of business objectives, maintain the core values of the company and enable them to develop their careers at Roche.” The Roche intranet team therefore thrived to align their strategy to the company goals: by 2025 digital natives will make up 50% of their workforce.

Supporting a good cause is at the very heart of our ambitions. Throughout the years we have carefully researched and selected charities that are close to our heart and deserve special recognition.

Charity Partner 2018

The German children’s cancer charity is committed to supporting children, who have been diagnosed with cancer, as well as their families and helps them to improve their quality of life. Their everyday work comprises counseling, accompanying families through their journey to recovery and the support through social funds should families run into financial difficulties.

The German children’s cancer charity supports and finances patient-oriented research projects in order to increase the young patients’ chances of a full recovery, ensure safe treatments and find new therapies so that long-term implications can be reduced to a minimum or completely eliminated.

They also established the ‘Waldpiraten-Camp’ which is located close to Heidelberg and is unique in Germany. It’s a rehabilitation, recreation and leisure camp which helps children to regain their strength and build-up their courage after winning the battle with cancer so they can return to their everyday and happy life.

Charity Partner 2017

DKMS is a not for profit organization and was founded on May 28, 1991, by a private initiative and due to the blood cancer patient Mechtild Harf. With more than 7.1 million registered stem cell donors and international locations like Germany, USA, Poland, Spain, and the UK, the DKMS family is the largest association of stem cell donor centers worldwide. At the present time, at least 18 DKMS members donate stem cells for blood cancer patients around the world each and every day.

Every 15 minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer in Germany. Whether children or adults – no one is safe from this disease but with the donation of stem cells, we may be able to defeat blood cancer. For a transplant of stem cells to be successful, the patient’s and donor’s tissue characteristics need  to be an almost exact match – which is a challenge, since the probability of finding a perfect match lies anywhere between 1 in 20,000 and 1 in several millions. Therefore we need to get as many people as possible registered, to increase the chances of finding a matching donor for every blood cancer patient.

In principle, anyone between 17 and 55 years of age can be registered as a potential stem cell donor. The most important thing is that you are physically fit, do not suffer from any chronic diseases, and you don’t belong to any risk groups. Your tissue characteristics are determined by just using a simple swab from the inside of your cheek or by a blood sample. After providing DKMS with your swabs or blood samples and your signed consent form, you can be a part of the DKMS family – and get the opportunity to give a blood cancer patient a second chance at life. Individuals as well as entire families, companies, associations, and many celebrities have joined us in serving a good cause – with more and more signing up each and every day.
