Bucim and Borov Dol, for the first time in their operations, opened their doors to the families of employees and hosted the unforgettable event “Friendship with Santa Claus”, offering a warm welcome to the children of their employees. The event took place on 30.12.2023 in the festive New Year setting of the districts of Bucim and Borov Dol.
The employees’ children were overjoyed when Santa Claus passed out New Year’s presents. It was a cheerful atmosphere in Borov Dol and Bucim with lots of smiles and socializing. More than 70% of the employees’ children were present at the event, which was enjoyed and rejoiced by all. In addition to fun games with the animators, photo booth sessions, face painting with mascots, and gifts from Santa Claus, children had the opportunity to make new friends and, also, get accustomed to what their parents do by looking at the mining machines on specially organized tours led by a group of employee volunteers.
Together, the employees of the mines decided on the activities and the concept of the event. Their opinions on how the event should be run and potential innovations were encouraged, ushering in a new tradition of celebrating the holiday season in the workplace with families. “Friendship with Santa Claus” is a shining example of corporate social responsibility and environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) values, embodying the spirit of a company that cares for its employees and their families.
“The happiness of our employees’ children is also our happiness. We foster a workplace culture that embraces the essence of family and community. This was the first, but not the last, time we will unite our large family for an extraordinary event,” said Alexander Rakov, manager of Bucim and Borov Dol
