30 November 2013, Pirdop – Today Aurubis Bulgaria for the first time opened the doors of its production to 90 children of company employees aged 7 to 18 years who had the opportunity to see the work environment of their parents for a day. In specially organized games and competitions the children were introduced to the production process in the company, visited the workplaces of their parents and spoke on interesting and important subjects such as workplace safety, environmental protection and others.
Aurubis is among the first organizations in the country that participated in the pilot edition of the project "I am proud of the work of my parents” realized at the initiative of the Bulgarian Global Compact Network*.
"When one is emotionally attached to their work and with the company they work at, like my colleagues, one seeks opportunities to share this with their family and engage them. At Aurubis we seek various ways to connect the professional part of our daily lives with our personal life and interests, family, friends, society as a whole. That is why when we received the call, we did not hesitate to confirm our attendance, "said Elena Dimova, Human Resources Manager for South-Eastern Europe at the company.
