2022 CSR Initiatives
March 2022, Italy
'Compatti si vince', following on from its success in 2021, continued its stream of wins, with a successful activity in early 2022, this time with the participation of volleyball champion, Simone Buti.
The initial meeting took place at the Council Chamber of the Municipality of Capriano del Colle (BS), for the meeting between the protagonists of the social project 'Compatti si vince' and the Board of Norican Group.
This time around, the Norican Executive Management Team met the players and testimonials of the project, with the aim to help even more people and families of our community.
April 2022, Shanghai
During the March-April 2022 lockdown in Shanghai, the local HR & Admin teams worked together to deliver a 15kg food package to support 40 Shanghai employees and their families.
The sourcing of food was a challenge in itself, as there were noted food shortages.
Not only that, but #TeamNorican also managed to secure courier service for the delivery of the goods - another scarce resource during lockdown.
Massive congrats to our Shanghai HR/Admin team.
April 2022, Denmark
In April 2022, at our headquarters in Denmark, we had a videoshoot with the union DI - Dansk Industriabout the Danish labour market. The purpose was to discuss with management and employees about the Danish labour market model corporation*, with a focus on how we work together to improve working skills.
This was another step in further securing worker's rights at DISA.
*A unique feature of the Danish labour market model is that employer and employee negotiate collective agreements on issues such as wages, benefits, working conditions or pension, for example. This gives security to employees and also allows flexibility to businesses.
June 2022, Italy
June went out with a bang thanks to the CSR initiatives from our colleagues at ItalPresseGauss. On the 25th of June, our colleagues in Italy collected trolleys with food to distribute to the ones in need as part of the "COMPATTI SI VINCE" project.
Compatti si vince is a diverse charitable project, as it brings together a network of towns, companies, sport teams and other supporters - all working towards the common goal of providing relief to the ones who need it most.
June 2022, India
DISA India Manufacturing team celebrated 'Family Fun Day' on 19th June 2022.
The event took place at the amusement park "WonderLa" located 75 km away from DISA India Tumkur facility.
Over 450 people (160 families) shared this unique experience and enjoyed a wide range of games, rides and activities.
This was a great opportunity to spend some time with their colleagues and create lasting memories for their families and the company.
July 2022, UK
Our Altrincham office was able to provide older, but in perfect working condition, laptops to a local school, St Margaret Ward Catholic Primary School.
This donation was made in the hopes to enable young children to learn vital digital skills to thrive in an increasingly digital world.
It also works towards our sustainability within IT, reusing our old equipment, instead of just disposing of it.
May & June 2022, Denmark
Reduce, reuse, recycle: in 2022, the purchasing department of our HQ in Denmark, made two furniture donations.
Office furniture and equipment of good quality that hadn't been used for some time was picked up for free – and, as we later found out, several of the items donated, such as white boards, found a second home at a local football club, a horse stable and at a retired people's club.
