The MCH Group is committed to institutions that promote the economy and business locations and actively supports them through its membership or partnership in specific projects. Since the exhibition companies are dependent on public money for big infrastructure projects and, in various areas, on sponsors too, the MCH Group practices restraint in taking out sponsorship commitments of its own. The financial contributions and the materials and services that the MCH Group provided to different organisations in 2016 nonetheless had a total value of some CHF 300 000.–.
The MCH Group offers its employees attractive working and employment conditions for the standard wages on the market. A bonus system commensurate with the different company levels ensures that a large number of employees benefit from the success of the group as a whole and the individual business units, on the one hand, and from the attainment of their personal targets, on the other hand, the latter being agreed on in a discussion with their supervisor. Employees are supported in their further personal and professional development through internal training and continuing education programmes, as well as through financial support for attending external courses and training sessions.
At present, some 250 word and picture brands are registered for the MCH Group at the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IGE) in Bern. Brand protection provides legal security and is a clear indication that the intellectual property rights of the corresponding brand belong to the MCH Group and are also protected by the group. In the event of brands of the MCH Group being violated, the protection afforded by these brands is enforced by legal means.
The MCH Group is a member of "Stop Piracy", the Swiss anticounterfeiting and antipiracy platform that was set up by the Federal Institute of Intellectual Property in 2005. For 30 years, the MCH Group has been committed to the protection of intellectual property in the context of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show and supports the fight against counterfeited and pirated goods
