Throughout the day and evening, the guests could get an insight in the day to day activities at the site, and hear about Transcom’s achievements for the past eight years. They could also hear more about the Transcom Language Academy, our CSR program Transcom Cares, and other initiatives that create a pleasant and stimulating work environment, create a sustainable employability, and a proper work-life balance.

Transcom Language Academy provides courses in Italian, German, and English. The employee obtains a certification diploma valid at a European level after completing the course.

Transcom Cares is a global Corporate Social Responsibility program focused on people development, equality & diversity, and community engagement. During the event our HR department presented how Transcom is working with local humanitarian associations such as “Naš san njihov osmijeh”, the Red Cross of the city of Pula, and other initiatives to help the homeless.

The highlight of the event was when the Pula site employees handed over the funds raised through a humanitarian lottery for a coworker in need, organized as part of the Transcom Cares program.

Handmade Day: we cultivate what we’re passionate about!

In February, Transcom Pula organized a “Handmade Day; offering some of our staff the possibility of showcasing what they personally have a passion for, over and above the enthusiasm they invest in their everyday work.

The Handmade Day was created as a company integration project, designed to bring people together who, during the day, are focused on their own work and risk sometimes losing sight of the bigger picture around them, which is made up of many different people with different interests, passions and skills, some of which you’d never have expected them to have. The “Handmade Day” event turned the meeting room into a showroom where our staff could get together and admire the creativity of the people they work side-by-side with every day.

20 employees presented their creations and there was a surprising variety on show: from knitwear to natural soap, from vinyl record clocks to creams, magnets, jam, paintings, jewelry and a whole host of artistic creations ranging from the abstract to the traditional. We were pleased to discover that our co-workers put a lot of passion into everything they do, not only when they are managing customers on the phone, but also in their free time. This initiative encouraged interaction and an exchange of ideas, as well as sparking new collaborations between all the participants. But most importantly, it helped some of our co-workers overcome their shyness and proudly show off their talent.

While almost everyone initially visited the showroom out of a sense of curiosity, it is to the credit of our “artisans” that many of them left with a souvenir or an ornament to wear or to show off at home. “Buyers” donated what they liked for their “purchases” and the symbolic amount raised was donated to the humanitarian association “Nas san njihov osmijeh” (“Our dream, their smile”, a group of volunteers offering support to the needy through fund raising events, lotteries, concerts and humanitarian initiatives).
Handmade Day turned out to be a great success, and as it was greatly appreciated by everyone we will certainly be organizing other events in the future. Like it? If you liked the event and want to be informed about future initiatives, follow our Facebook page!
