We are with you at the right time






About the project

"Unhappiness doesn't walk through the hills, but through people". Life sometimes brings surprises, but sometimes they are very sad. From a happy family, people struggling with adversity may become in a short time. They should not be left alone. Through the Project “We are with you at the right time” we have been helping the employees of U. S Steel Košice, s.r.o. and its subsidiary companies who find themselves in a difficult life situation from 2012. Our effort is to help colleagues and their families with minor children to get out of the social isolation, to recover their psychic, to have the new experiences and to make friendly contacts.




Demonstrate solidarity with employees who find themselves in distress
Encourage empathy of the Company’s employees with colleagues who are in adversity


Criteria for selecting employees

When selecting the employees, the following criteria are crucial: the human aspect, defining the problem in the family, the number of children under 18 years of age, the supervisor’s opinion and, of course, the employee’s approval.

The employees are included in the project for one to two years, depending on their individual family situation. In cooperation with the Human Resources Department and the Company´s newspaper Oceľ východu, every year in September we are looking for the employees who:

  • have been absent from work due to illness for more than 150 days, one of the family members passed away, at least two children under 18 years of age
  • need help for some other family reasons - seriously ill children

Every year we help about ten selected families.


Responses of employees involved in the project

The employees involved in the project have expressed their positive feedback as follows:

“In my opinion, this project has an enormous significance. For our family it was very good because we could buy Barborka a rehabilitation device which she needs for daily care.”

“No doubt, it is right that the employer is interested in families that have got into troubles.”

“For me and my family it's a great achievement that U. S. Steel noticed that they have employees who, together with their children and families, have their own problems.” 

“Children have experiences that they would never experience...”

“Of all the events I most liked ballooning. We would not afford something like that.”

Thank very much to the management and all the people involved in events for all children, not only from our family; I am grateful to all of you from the bottom of my heart”.


If you know an employee of U. S. Steel Košice, s.r.o. who meets the set criteria and finds himself/herself in a difficult life situation, please let us know.
