International Day of Families
As outlined by the UN: The 2021 observance of the International Day of Families focuses on the impacts of new technologies on the well-being of families.
Keeping this in mind, MR Marine Group has created many initiatives that embrace the new technologies we have been restricted to throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and has used it to involve the families of our employees in fun days for everyone. During the December time, Sinterklaas paid a visit to all the MRG employee’s children and delivered gifts to them. A company success was awarded with a gift from the company that we could share with our families – some gifts included experience vouchers, others online vouchers, all of them to enjoy and share with their families.
We also consider all our staff to be part of our global family. Even though we cannot meet in an office in-person, every one of our global team members play a vital role in the success of our business, and we treat them like family: we celebrate all successes, offer assistance when times are tough, and help wherever needed.
At MR Marine Group, our job is demanding and fast-paced, but we know the importance of work/life balance. That is why we regularly engage with the team to make sure that everyone is taking breaks where necessary, spending time with their families, so as to ensure that while all business goals are met, families are not neglected.
As the UN stated, and as we agree, families and family-oriented policies and programmes are vital for the achievement of businesses.
