Optidev Coworkers to Donate Money to Their Favorite Charity
Optidev’s “coworker of the month” will be rewarded a generous amount of money to donate to a charity of his or her choice. This rewards program aims to create continuous focus on corporate social responsibility while building a caring company culture.
– We want to show our team members how much we appreciate them and at the same time strengthen our charitable work and focus on sustainability. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an important part of our corporate culture, says Fredrik Logenius, Optidev’s CEO.
Appointed coworkers decide what charitable organization they want to donate the money to.
According to Fredrik, the idea of a rewards system had been discussed for some time, but it was first after watching a celebrity baking show on TV, in which the winner selects a charity as recipient of prize money, that the idea turned into action.
– I thought the idea of giving to a good cause and making the person (the donor) feel proud over his or her achievement was brilliant. It strengthens our company culture – something that is always worth investing in.
Marje Langseth Seimre, HR manager at Optidev, agrees with Fredrik Logenius.
– Culture is one of the cornerstones of a successful company, and it always takes precedence over structure. The structure of a company can be changed, but the culture takes a long time to shape and change.
Optidev has partnered with Great Place To Work, a company that ranks workplaces by evaluating and developing the organization’s culture, and has once again been placed on the list of Sweden’s best places to work.
– Our company culture is unique and it impacts everything we do. That is why it is so important that we continue to improve and develop our culture. The recognition of “the coworker of the quarter” is one of the puzzle piece that we believe will further strengthen our organization, concludes Marje Langseth Seimre.
