Nina, Corporate Communications Manager

Nina has been working in Corporate Communications at CHECK24 since February 2021. As part of the CHECK24 Helps initiative, she oversees social commitments and is responsible for monitoring policy and legislative developments. In the interview, you can find out the initiative's goals and what has already been achieved.

Hello Nina, please introduce yourself briefly.

Hi, I'm Nina and I've been working at CHECK24 in the Corporate Communications department since February 2021. Before that, I went through the classic path for communication professions: I studied Communication and Economics for my Bachelor's degree and Media and Political Communication for my Master's degree. After that, I did a traineeship at a PR agency, and from there, I went to CHECK24!

What exactly are your tasks as Corporate Communications Manager?

My area of responsibility is very diverse. I appreciate that about this field of work, especially the corresponding structure here at CHECK. I would roughly divide my tasks into two areas:

1) our comprehensive social commitment (CSR) with the CHECK24 helps initiatives and

2) political issues.

The first area is looking for suitable partner organizations and discussing possibilities for support or cooperation with long-standing partners. In addition, of course, there is the communication of these commitments - both internally and externally. In the second area, my focus is on monitoring political and legal developments - for example, I look at which new regulations could be relevant for us.

Let's take a closer look at the CSR topic. First, what is the focus of CHECK24 hilft?

The initiative was founded in 2016 and has supported numerous projects with almost 5,5 million euros. The focus is on helping disadvantaged children and young people as well as nature. The initiative has three pillars:

1) Customers can donate their points collected at closing for our major partner organizations, such as "A Heart for Children," in the points donation program.

2) In the sponsorship program, we support regional organizations such as Berliner Straßenkinder e.V. (Berlin Street Children).

3) In the employee engagement program, we support the voluntary work of our employees - because voluntary work is an indispensable pillar of society.

What goals is CHECK24 hilft pursuing, and what has already been achieved?

We want to take on our responsibility as a company - for a sustainable society and to protect our livelihoods. This includes, for example, helping to improve the educational and future opportunities of disadvantaged children and young people together with our partners. For this purpose, we annually organize a special event for children of Arche together with RTL - Wir helfen Kindern.

In the field of nature, it was initially about starting with ourselves - that is, identifying our "footprint" and implementing measures to reduce emissions. As the next major projects, we have started a cooperation with WWF Germany, and with the Stiftung Deutsche Landschaften (SDL) and the Schutzgemeinschaft Deutscher Wald (SDW), we have planted 100,000 trees in Germany.

The best thing about CHECK24?

Steep learning curves are guaranteed at CHECK24 - I always learn something new here!

What were the highlights of recent times?

There were a few. I'd mention three examples: At the ZDF fundraising gala "Ein Herz für Kinder" at the end of 2023, I had the opportunity to be present live in the studio audience and officially represent CHECK24. That was really exciting! Additionally, a few weeks prior to the gala, we filmed a fun segment announcing our donations.

With RTL - Wir helfen Kindern, we organized a nature day for the kids of the Berliner Arche at a meadow orchard of the Stiftung Deutsche Landschaften, where they planted a tree and learned a lot about our local nature.

And last but not least: A tree planting event with the Brandenburg Minister for Environment and Climate Protection as part of our 100,000 Trees Initiative.

And finally, please tell us what makes CHECK24 unique for you.

For me, CHECK24 means permanent learning and further development. We don't rest on our laurels and constantly think about what we can improve. Steep learning curves are guaranteed here. In addition, you quickly take responsibility for your topics/projects. And what I appreciate most is the speed paired with healthy pragmatism. I have never encountered endless coordination and approval processes here. It's great that we work directly with the CEOs here and that they don't sit somewhere isolated in huge individual offices.
