How can employees worldwide be inspired to get involved in social issues?
As part of its corporate social responsibility measures, Deutsche Bank launched the "Born to Be" program, which bundles various educational initiatives for children and young people worldwide. Education is the basic prerequisite for social development and a means for people to escape poverty. The mentoring program now desired was to fit perfectly into the education portfolio and support socially disadvantaged youth. The particular challenge: The solution had to enable measurable results, as well as be scalable so that it could be used company-wide and by all employees regardless of location.


Multilingual Live Mentoring modules on educational success, job preparation and study support
Our actions:
Creation of new, multilingual Live Mentoring modules and provision of proven modules on the topics of educational success and career preparation
Adaptation of the modules to Deutsche Bank's CI and branding
Provision of materials for internal user recruiting
Connection with NGOs and mentee recruiting
Live webinar training for mentors
Preparation of scientific impact studies
With the help of our digital mentoring platform, hundreds of Deutsche Bank employees were able to support teenagers and young adults in their preparation for their professional lives. Virtual volunteering is now successfully used by Deutsche Bank in over 13 countries. Our partnership, which has been in place since 2016, is also constantly adapting to new situations: In the wake of the Covid 19 crisis, for example, new online mentoring supports are launched to help schoolchildren and young female students to catch up on missed parts of their curricula.


Online mentoring not only supports mentees - mentors also benefit: They develop their social skills and identify measurably stronger with their company.
