Transcom has had offices in L’Aquila for 18 years, and is deeply linked to the territory, not only by its many employees. The event celebrated the rebirth of the crater territories, and gave concrete aid to the students of the mountain municipality hit by the earthquakes in 2009 and 2016. The Falcone & Borsellino institute was inaugurated on September 11th,and apart from hosting elementary and middle classes, it can also be used as a safe structure by the Civil Protection in case of emergencies.

The initiative is part of Transcom Cares, our global program for social responsibility and solidarity, and thanks to the contribution of colleagues from all over Italy, Transcom could donate 45 boxes of stationery material that the students will use in their daily activities.

For Transcom, the event was a unique opportunity to be in direct contact with the territory. We have always believed in the power of the people from these areas. During the touching ceremony, Transcom employees read passages from the book Il Giglio dell’Aquila, published by Transcom shortly after the earthquake, remembering the past and celebrating the territories new life, thanks to the joint efforts of individuals and institutions.

The event was attended by, among others; Lorena Marzolo, Client Service Manager at Transcom; MP Stefania Pezzopane; Guido Quintino Liris, Vice Mayor of L’Aquila; Massimiliano Giorgi and Carlo Marini, the Mayor and the Deputy Mayor of Montereale; Gianluca Gemma, General Manager Italian Market and Giuseppe Bertini, HR Director Central & South Europe.

The Great Transcom Bake Off

The Dutch Transcom team has shown exceptional creativity in the first Great Transcom Bake Off. The contest took place in early April and served as a fund raiser for the local Animal Ambulance. 12 Transcom team members put their baking skills to test, the results of which were professionally tasted by the jury, including local General Manager Joop Evers.

The cakes were rated on taste, texture, presentation and creativity. The cakes, a wide variety of flavors and types ranging from Oreo to double layer fondant, were put up for sale to raise money for the local Animal Ambulance. The jury was all praises for the bakers’ creativity and applauded them for their commitment to supporting the volunteers at the Animal Ambulance.

Eva de Vries was declared the proud winner of the contest, an 8/10 as per the jury. She brought the perfect balance between taste, creativity and presentation – a beautiful cake that tasted just as delicious. Yvonne Splinter and Ginette Loer came in second and third. Brilliant job by all of you!

Transcom Netherlands gladly doubled the amount that Transcom’s Next Top Bakers raised and is happy to support the local Animal Ambulance, a voluntary organization that collects sick and wounded animals and brings them to an animal shelter where their owners can pick them up once they recover. The volunteers work selflessly and are 24/7 available for emergencies, a tremendously devoted group of people. (www.dierenambulance-groningen.nl).

Hello Transcom 2017

Today, we published our magazine Hello Transcom 2017, which features stories from around the company. In this issue, we focus on the effects of digitalization in our industry, and give some examples of how Transcom is responding together with our clients. You can access the magazine at the bottom of this post, or download it from here.

We recently also launched a special website, 2016.transcom.com, which replaces the traditional front section of the annual report. On this site, you will find information on our accomplishments in 2016 and focus areas going forward. We have also published our report on people & sustainability there. This year, we took an important step in further improving our sustainability reporting by publishing our first report in accordance with the GRI Standards (Core option) of the Global Reporting Initiative. We have started to report on a number of new KPIs, not least in our focus areas People Development and Equality & Diversity.

Transcom Italy raised money for schools in earthquake-hit areas

The terrible earthquake that devastated huge areas of central Italy last August 24 caused hundreds of victims and flattened houses, churches, schools, hospitals and public buildings. It also made many of our colleagues at Transcom’s L’Aquila site in Italy (60 km from the epicenter) relive the dramatic days of the disastrous 2009 earthquake, giving them a sleepless night, but fortunately without causing any major damage or victims.

As it did seven years ago, Transcom’s aid and solidarity machine sprang into action to offer support to the people affected and promote the fundraising channels activated by the Italian and International Red Cross.

After the earthquake, the schools in Amatrice were transferred to the prefabricated units installed by the Civil Protection service.

In addition, shortly before the start of the school year, Transcom Italy promoted a solidarity project to help support the 785 students educated at the schools and institutes located in Amatrice, Arquata, Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto that were damaged by the earthquake. A fundraising effort was set in motion to ensure that the start of the academic year was a dignified one in the temporary schools set up in record time by the Civil Protection service. Through the HR offices at all Italian sites, Transcom raised about €2,000 to buy classroom materials (pencil cases, exercise books, text books) for students at all levels, from elementary to secondary school.

This donation is an initiative promoted by Transcom Cares, the solidarity and social responsibility program that supervises our initiatives worldwide.

Transcom’s Shared Service Center in Vilnius supports fundraising inititative for families of children with cancer

In December 2016, Transcom Shared Service Center Vilnius (SSC) decided to organize a fund raising for a good purpose – to support an initiative of building a home for families of the children with oncological diseases.

Every year about 100 children under 18 are diagnosed with cancer in Lithuania. Recovering from this disease takes from half a year up to several years, depending on how advanced the cancer is. When the child gets ill – the whole family is affected by this illness as well. Only one parent can stay with the child in the hospital, while other family members stay apart. To ease the situation for these families and give them a possibility to get through this rough time in their lives standing strong together we invited the whole Shared Service Center to contribute to the project of building a home! This home will be located near the biggest oncological center in Lithuania.Here the families will get medical care from pediatricians, pain specialists, medics,oncologists, but they will also have access to different art and music therapies. The aim with the home is to help families get better both physically and emotionally.

Transcom’s fund raising event was initiated together with fun activities for the whole department including snacks, fun videos remembering what we achieved in 2016 and what we are looking forward to in 2017. Also, we received many cheerful Christmas video greetings from our colleagues we work with daily from all over Europe, the Philippines and North America – really building a feeling of One Transcom! During this wonderful time of the year we are so happy to contribute to making good things happen.
