Always keen to provide favorable working conditions for its employees, Crodarom has encouraged a family atmosphere within its corporate culture since its inception with numerous annual events. To take things a step further, since 2018, the company has introduced days dedicated to well-being, stress management and addiction prevention.
The aim of these wellness days was to raise employees' awareness of psychosocial risks, and to provide a positive impetus for a collective climate and motivation in the workplace. The company aims to change personal and collective perceptions of the professional sphere by giving employees the tools to avoid the physical, psychological and emotional consequences that can be generated by work demands and personal contexts. The activities proposed during these days were selected to meet these different challenges. Numerous activities and workshops were offered, including :
- Physical activities to remind us of the benefits of sport for health and well-being,
- Workshops led by a dietician, an osteopath, a sophrologist, a yoga teacher, etc.
- Intervention on sleep and addictions by a doctor and an occupational psychologist
- Video screening on stress...
With 55 out of 70 employees taking part, the results were very positive. Employees appreciated the change of scenery, as well as the exchange, sharing and discovery...
In 2018, Crodarom signed the Responsible Care® global charter, a shared commitment by the global chemical industry to the safe management of chemicals throughout their life cycle and the promotion of their role in improving quality of life and their contribution to sustainable development.
