At Fontem we have an employee Social Committee that works to deliver a full program of employee instigated and led social activities for everyone to participate in and enjoy. It’s a way for people to share skills and passions, as well as develop social relationships outside of the work environment. During the Covid pandemic this really helped keep people connected while they had to work from home.
Some of the activities organized by the Social Committee include a regular trivia quiz night with a variety of topics; a ‘Your Time to Share’ forum where colleagues can discuss ideas and experiences; ‘Coffee Chats with the Fontem Leadership Team’ which is small group chat about any topic with a member of the senior leadership team.
December was a busy month for the Social Committee. This year they organized a virtual game of Christmas Bingo, surprised employee’s children here in the Netherlands with a digital message from Sinterklaas along with a Christmas gift, and sent out a special Christmas gift to all employees.
Any Fontem employee can get involved with the Social Committee, suggest clubs and activities or just come along and participate in the events.
