We really care about our customers at eakin® and that’s why we do everything we can to make things better, easier and less disruptive, so that a stoma is just a small part of a bigger life. But it doesn’t stop with our customers; we also care about the community around us and our people.
We are proud to support our local community through partnerships with local universities by offering placement years to students on a variety of courses. These placements provide a nurturing and learning environment where students get a taste of working on projects in an industry setting to help prepare them for the workplace after graduating.
Supporting both local and international charities is something we encourage on a corporate and personal level. Over the Christmas period we made a donation to Save the Children instead of sending Christmas cards, and employees added with personal donations through our Christmas Jumper Day in our offices in Northern Ireland, Japan and Netherlands.
We don’t just enjoy the food ourselves. Employees in Comber donated a whopping 117kg of food to a foodbank, supporting local families who are struggling financially.
Healthy bodies and minds are important, especially with the rise in mental health issues such as stress and anxiety. Recognising how important good mental health is for everyone, we invited Aware NI along to do a workshop on Mood Matters with our employees.
