At Tembo we believe it is important to improve the social environment of our employees and their families. That is why we support local social and cultural events and initiatives.
On the 18th and 19th of June 2019, Tembo organized Joy and Pride days for their worldwide youngsters. Young Tembo employees from all over the world gathered in Poland. The Joy and Pride days enabled our youngsters to learn more about all our companies and to get to know each other. A company tour in ITM Poland given by Polish youngsters, company presentations, team building activities, an official diner and a BBQ all contributed to closer global Tembo connections. ITM Poland and PMP, thank you for hosting this event!
RNT Machinery supports the home for disabled children Ángeles de Conani. Not only the company itself, but also its employees voluntarily donate money. The employees at RNT Machinery also organize parties at the home to entertain the children. The children are abandoned children with for instance mental problems, HIV and physical disabilities. The company has been supporting this home since 2017.
The tremendous efforts of our worldwide personnel in 2018 helped to raise money for research into Multiple Scleroses (MS). 70 of our colleagues participated in the Zwolse Halve Marathon, others sponsored and collected money. the Tembo board doubled the amount of money raised. We were proudly able to hand over a cheque for 30 thousand euros to Dutch skaters and Olympic medal winners Ronald and Michel Mulder. In 2019 employees will participate and raise money for a cause again.
