Schloss Benkhausen_2018

Health, culture and social affairs

Social commitment

As one of the largest employers in the region and a globally active company, the Gauselmann Group sees itself as part of society and does everything possible to reinforce its strength. From a laptop donation for social institutions and financial support for benefit concerts, or the technical modernisation of schoolrooms - the Gauselmann Group assumes social responsibility in all manner of ways. Particularly in the Lübbecke region, but also beyond its borders, the Group is a valued and respected promoter and sponsor.

Commitment to health

Regional initiatives aimed at preventive health measures are especially supported by the Gauselmann Group. Entrepreneur Paul Gauselmann, for example, has been a committed long-time board member of the Friends of the ‘Stroke’ - Neurological Clinic Minden e.V. Association, which is also initiator of the annual stroke information tour. Here, tests are offered to assess the stroke risk of people living in the Minden-Lübbecke district. Health is also a top priority within the Gauselmann Group itself. For example, with a wide range of activities to promote a healthy and active professional and personal lifestyle, the Group’s occupational health management system helps employees to achieve a conscious work/life balance.

Cultural commitment

In addition to supporting many cultural events, the Gauselmann Group’s entrepreneurial commitment also benefits the preservation of local monuments and the economic infrastructure. An important contribution to the preservation of the region’s cultural heritage was made by the entrepreneurial family in 2010 with the acquisition of the 500-year old castle ‘Schloss Benkhausen’. It is one of the few remaining historical buildings representing Westphalian cultural history. In less than five years, the castle was transformed into a state-of-the-art conference hotel. In addition to seminars, workshops, business meetings and conferences for Group and external companies, ‘Schloss Benkhausen’ is also a venue for a wide variety of artistic and cultural events as well as civil marriage ceremonies. Since May 2015, the castle-café ‘Die Rentei’ and the German Coin-Op Museum have also proved to be popular weekend destinations for people from the surrounding district.
