To mark the importance of our sustainability work, every single employee throughout the organisation is encouraged to set a personal sustainability goal. 70 percent of all staff (all employees but for part-time store staff) has set one.
We also believe that sports can make our minds, souls and bodies become something more than what we are today and that anyone can become anything. We are convinced that exercise and an active lifestyle is key to better health and higher performance. We take pride in nurturing a working environment where employees can grow on the job and develop. This is one of the reasons why we instituted a mandatory Sports Hour a few years ago. Every Friday, the office closes down for our weekly one-hour training.
Our work shows: our staff is 300% stronger than they were in 2015 when Sports Hour was initiated, and our employee engagement, as well as our financial results, have increased.
