#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. As part of Nornickel’s youth corporate program In Good Company, a new track Social Innovators was launched. Previously, the program had three tracks: Creativity, Professional Practice and Growth Track.
Over the course of three weeks, participants sent the organizers their ideas in the following areas: I Do It for the City, I Do It for the Company, and I Do It for Myself.
After all the ideas were collected, a vote took place, where all company employees could vote for the most liked and useful proposals. As a result of the selection, five top ideas were formed in each nomination.
In the final, the ideas authors defended their projects in front of like-minded people and a panel of experts.
For example, the first group of developers considered the professional burnout prevention to be one of the urgent needs. In order to practically help people, In Good Company proposed creating conditions for comfortable work and rest at work in the format of relaxation spaces for employees.
To do this, the idea authors proposed creating premises equipped with comfortable furniture, climate control, greenery, a massage chair, a small library, where even a visiting psychologist can work.
“I think this is a very good project. It is important that you put it together yourself, determine the activities that you need at work”, the Norilsk Development Agency director Maxim Mironov told the project authors.
“Based on the discussion results, final project ideas will be formed, for the implementation of which a team will be formed from among the company’s young employees. Curators will help participants design their projects correctly, make a high-quality product, and prepare a presentation for defense in front of experts by February 2024. If the idea is assessed positively and experts recognize it as promising, Nornickel will help the young authors team in its implementation”, says Yulia Manchuk, chief specialist of the Nornickel’s charitable activities and corporate community development department.
