DEIF A/S ranked second-best workplace of the year in Denmark!
DEIF came in second in the national competition to become best workplace in Denmark in 2017 at the 3F labour Union’s business & growth conference ‘Vision Denmark’. A competition where organisatons are nominated by employees only.
The jury was particularly focused on corporate social responsibility – an area Pia, who nominated DEIF, knows all about because of long-term illness. ‘I was very sick with severe body infections and had actually been approved for early retirement benefits. But in cooperation with DEIF and our health insurance we managed to fight it off enough for me to be back at work on full time’, she says. ‘It’s fantastic’. She explains more about her process in the video below (note: in Danish).
Even though DEIF ranked second-best, Pia has no doubt that DEIF is still a winner. ’Of course, we would have preferred to win, but to me, DEIF is still number one’. ‘The mere fact that we made it to the finals is worth celebrating. We’re very proud of it’, Executive Vice President & Managing Director Mogens Garder continues.
About DEIFs nomination and social responsibility
In Pia’s nomination, she writes: ‘I would like to nominate DEIF because they really embrace their social responsibility [...] DEIF has stayed at the forefront of wind power and green energy and the company stands by its responsibility as an industrial company. So all waste is sorted and the factory is heated using geothermal energy. [...] Staff benefits are excellent. We’re offered on-site physiotherapy and partial payment of a wide range of leisure activities, and the food is served in our canteen every day by our wonderful chefs’.
DEIF is very concerned with corporate social responsibility and sustainability.
Therefore, we have introduced our own code of conduct based on internationally recognised conventions on human rights, labour rights, safety and environment and anti-corruption. In addition, our values reflect our respect for the individual.
