The Spanish Red Cross day, known as “El día de la Banderita”, took place on October 3 this year. It is a 100-year-old event that has become the biggest source of funds for the non-profit organization.
During one single day, the organization places out a large number of tables in the main cities, where volunteers encourage citizens to make donations and, in return, give the donors a badge to wear, “la banderita”.
This year, Transcom was invited to participate. Eight of our employees volunteered to take care of one of the tables in Madrid during the whole day.
We also had the opportunity to give our respects to H.M. the Queen Sofia at the table she was presiding over, where she received Isabel Sanchez Lozano, the General Manager for Transcom’s Iberia & Latin America Region, our Human Resources Manager for Iberia and Latin America, Rosana Garcia, and Cristina Villegas, Human Resources motivation support.
Later in the day, H.R.H. Letizia Princess of Asturias received Cristina Villegas and three Transcom employees as representatives of the three contact centers we have in Madrid.
