We’ve had the great opportunity to talk to general manager, Stamatis Solomakos and HR and administration manager, Clarissa Uy, from Jotun Philippines. We talk about how Jotun is highly committed to local communities and how good relations to local communities are necessary for business success, for example Jotun Philippines is contributing paint and monetary donations to the NGO Bridge Builder Foundation, who are helping street children and their families in the Philippines.
Listen in on this podcast for inspiration. Here’s a snippet of what we talked about:
“For me, I’ve been working in HR for more than 10 years now. I’ve been in different companies, but this is the first time I’m working with a company who has allotted part of the sales budget for the CSR activities And being raised from a poor family I know the fact that it’s really hard having nothing. So being the head of the CSR committee it’s more somehow, easy for me, to understand the need of society, especially the children. That’s the reason why some of the tie-ups are more particular with the children.”
