Community Engagement


For us, social responsibility is a matter of course and forms a fundamental part of our approach to responsible corporate management. Through various social projects, especially at our business locations, and in our sourcing countries, we address the current challenges being faced locally, and support people both inside and outside our company.

Social commitment starts with our own employees, but it doesn’t stop there.

We support people who find themselves in need, or at a disadvantage, and help them to help themselves – at our own business locations and in our sourcing markets. In this way, we seek to promote solidarity and enable opportunities and advancement in our society.


From one day to the next, suddenly everything is different. Any one of us can be hit by a sudden and serious stroke of fate. That is why the Bernd Freier Fund, set up by our company’s founder and owner, provides assistance for employees and family members. The fund is open to applications from all employees who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own, and offers financial support in difficult life situations.


Reaching out and lending a hand.

‘You are welcome’ is the name of our employee initiative in which we show solidarity with people in need living in the region surrounding our company headquarters. The initiative is funded by a budget set aside by our management team, which is then managed independently by the initiative, and used to support good causes. The main focus is on clothing donations, which are primarily given to social institutions that support disadvantaged children and young people.

Furthermore, s.Oliver has been sponsoring Special Olympics Germany for many years.
