We are aware that audius is primarily a product of our employees' expertise and professional work. But not everyone in the world has the same opportunities for education and further personal development. This is why we strive to help people that do not have the same positive prospects as we have due to their living conditions—people who live on the breadline urgently needing our help.
Youth development is also be seen by us as part of a company's social responsibility. By providing internships and project days, audius supports a variety of projects with the goal to contribute to youth development at an early stage. This investment in future obtains high priority at audius - both due to economic reason and sociopolitical necessity.
Sport is our passion - and sport ties. It fosters the team spirit as well as it's a precious compensation for working life. The engagement in this area has got a high significance to us. That's why we support several sports clubs throughout our region.
