Responsibility

Prognos assumes responsibility – in our projects, for our employees, for the future. Sustainability is more than a topic for us, it is our point of orientation.

„A system that destroys the preconditions on which it is built is profoundly uneconomic.“
Christian Böllhoff

For more than 60 years, Prognos teams have been conducting research in numerous projects on the future of our society, politics and economy. Also as an employer and as a company, we are driven by the question of how we can live and work together in the long term - on a global, regional and personal level.

Sustainability – thought of in entrepreneurial, ecological and social terms – is therefore much more than a topic of consultancy for us. It is also the benchmark on which we base our actions. Both externally and internally. 

Sustainability at Prognos

The subject of sustainability is not only firmly anchored in the range of services we provide to our clients. We also assume responsibility within the company itself. Colleagues across locations regularly get involved with a wide range of experience and activities for an environmentally conscious everyday working life, for the future of our company, for the economy and society, for each other. For us, living sustainability means acting with foresight in all areas.

Economic Initiative for Sustainability

We design our processes and working environments to be resource-efficient and assume responsibility for the well-being of our employees. Last but not least, we create and maintain future-proof jobs through strategic corporate management. We also publicly acknowledge our social, ecological and economic responsibility: Since 2017, Prognos has been part of the Sustainability Business Initiative of Baden-Württemberg and has thus committed to reporting on its sustainability activities. The Economic Initiative for Sustainability (Wirtschaftsinitiative Nachhaltigkeit), WIN for short, pools the experience and knowledge of companies committed to sustainability – and was co-developed by us. 

 

A corporate culture of appreciation

Prognos consistently works in an interdisciplinary manner. We learn from each other, bringing together different perspectives, listening to each other and being open to different approaches and the paths and views of others. It goes without saying that we respect and value each other as people. This has been part of Prognos AG's genetic code since its foundation in 1959: Our project teams have always brought together researchers from different disciplines and age groups.

Today, our teams work at nine locations in three countries. They are shaped by the different backgrounds, perspectives and lifestyles of the team members. We find this to be a great asset - as individuals and as a company. This is also why we are particularly committed to ensuring that the professional requirements are compatible with the private needs of our employees.

    Social Responsibility

    For us as a company, responsibility also means demanding and promoting the social commitment of teams and individuals. And it works: every year Prognos employees at all locations get involved in good causes - with full commitment because they choose and initiate the projects themselves. Prognos supports them organisationally and financially. The range of supported organisations and initiatives is huge.
