December is the most beautiful time of the year. Not only is it beautiful that we get to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve, but we also contribute and share our values this month. We, at Velez, care about Corporate Social Responsibility and decided that this month we help by following a campaign to ‘Prepare the gift yourself, give love for someone who does not expect it’. The purpose of this campaign was to collect holiday gifts for children of families in need. Gifts included food such as salty or sweet, toys, books, and coloring books. The gifts were packed inside a shoe package, so it was the same size for every child. We wrote in the gifts, the age and gender of the child. By taking part in this campaign, we wanted to spread happiness as we do not only provide our IT services, but we also care for one and another.
Furthermore, why should we throw clothes away when we can donate? We had around 20 huge boxes filled with clothes that our company no longer needed. We helped many individuals through winter and prepared them for all other seasons. Worth mentioning is our Secret Santa game which we played in our UK, USA, Spain, Prishtina offices.
We all thanked each other for the hard work and support that we give one another throughout the year. Our company this year managed to create a new website, maintenance offerings, new offices, and employees, been very active on social media and posted more on every platform, especially LinkedIn with over 80 posts. We welcomed 102 clients, consumed 1489 energy drinks, completed 2419 cases, and received 1,000,000+ emails, calls, and messages. We promise to live and breathe the #WhateverItTakes mentality, not only internally but towards everyone else too.
We officially closed the year that was filled with hardships, challenges but also great success as we have not let the COVID-19 to dim our light, we have taken the wheels on our hands and succeeded in every area.
