Our responsibility as an agency is, of course, especially to our clients. For us at Skills, however, this concept goes much further - just as we understand sustainability in a broad context.
As professional communicators, we share responsibility for public opinion and the mood in our country. We take this mission very seriously. We regularly initiate charitable projects ourselves (e.g., "Journalism and Democracy," Respekt.net), participate in others, get involved against injustice and xenophobia, and pitch in when help is needed - also in the form of fundraising campaigns.
In the spirit of our social responsibility, we support various projects and organizations that serve a charitable interest: From the children's aid organization SONNE-International to the Harley-Davidson Charity Tour and the Mauthausen Committee Austria to Shark Project.
In a team, you always bear responsibility for each other. Beyond respect and support, at Skills this means, for example, exchanging ideas and strengthening cohesion within the framework of team events, enabling further training, responding flexibly to individual life situations and ensuring that no one is left behind even in difficult situations.
Skills is committed to ethical and professional standards and the further development of the communications industry in Austria and internationally. We have actively participated in the founding of the Austrian Ethics Council for Public Relations, Managing Director Jürgen H. Gangoly is active in the world PR association ICCO, Skills partner Karin Wiesinger on the board of the Public Relations Verband Austria (PRVA) and the entire Skills leadership team has been involved for many years in teaching and speaking activities at universities, colleges and private educational institutions.
We have not only accumulated extensive expertise on the subject of sustainability - ecological, economic and social - over many years, which we make available to our clients (e.g. with our expertise in the field of sustainability reports or with reputation gap analysis), but also live it ourselves. Under the motto "Green Skills," we have been striving for years to reduce our ecological footprint.
