Social inclusion

At HITSA, we work on making social inclusion a part of our culture. The aim is to create social value while generating economic value.

In the words of HITSA’s Managing Director, Henrik Andersen:

“My goal is to make all those who work at HITSA feel like a family, with the rights and obligations that go along with that. We help each other and we expect things from each other. We need to create something positive, not only by producing urban furniture where there is a need, but also by making a difference to ourselves and others.”

This means that we employ trainees, apprentices and permanent employees who have all been on the fringes of the labour market. This could include people with problems such as substance abuse, criminal offences, illness or something else. They work here in  internships, and in jobs with special or even normal working conditions. Out of the approximately 110 people we employ, roughly 25 have joined the company as a result of our work with social responsibility.

We also take social responsibility for our permanent employees. Anyone can find themselves in a crisis because of illness, stress, family circumstances or something similar. We help our employees get through periods of crisis, with the aim of keeping them in the labour market.

HITSA is not a charity, and one of our basic principles is that each employee must generate economic value. We see good opportunities for everyone to develop their potential and create value if they are given the right conditions and the support they need.

Social responsibility has been a part of the culture at HITSA for many years. From 2018 to 2022, Den Sociale Kapitalfond Invest was co-owner of HITSA, and during this period efforts to promote social inclusion were further strengthened. In 2022, CROWD (Creators of the Outside World) became the owner of HITSA, in part due to our focus on social inclusion.

We have established KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) for our work to promote social inclusion. We record the number of employees, apprentices and trainees from the fringes of the labour market and how long they stay with us.
