Pro bono is work undertaken for the common good of society.
Both as a company and as individuals , we want to take responsibility and work for positive development in our society – on a local, national and global level. We support a number of different organizations that we believe will contribute to a better society. This can include financial support, free advice or other services where we donate our time, expertise and our experience.
All our employees are encouraged to get involved in social causes and based on their own skill sets, use their knowledge to further the common social good. Each employee is involved in decisions concerning these matters and all are given the opportunity to set aside time for personal volunteer work.
