ATS Group is highly committed to the society in which people live and work. Social commitment, safety, health and the environment are taken into account to a great extent in daily company policy. In practice, this commitment to CSR translates into very concrete actions:
All technical specialisations within ATS Group have a strong need for technical profiles. To meet that need, ATS Group works closely with educational institutions. From primary education to higher education and university, even adult education, we actively try to cooperate with schools and support various initiatives. This always with the same objective: to teach "the love of the job" and increase a qualitative influx of employees.
Every year, ATS Group organises the ATS Run in collaboration with the Merelbeke Municipality, the Rhode & Schelde Police Region and Athletics Club Merelbeke. This run is in the first place a recreational relay marathon run by 6 runners who cover together the marathon distance of 42.195 km. The runners run respectively 5km, 10km, 5km and the last runner completes the distance with 7,195km. The ATS Run is therefore the perfect opportunity to take on this sporting challenge with one or more teams!
In addition to the ekiden, a KIDS Run (4x625m relay per 4 kids) and individual runs of 5 km and 10 km are organised for those who cannot complete a full team.
The entire proceeds of the ATS-Run always go to regional charities.
