HT Awarded Cycle Friendly Employer Certificate
Hrvatski Telekom is the first telecom in Croatia to be awarded the Cycle-Friendly Employer. With this, HT has joined the international initiative of socially responsible companies whose goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and positively affect its employees' health and living habits.
In Croatia, the certification is carried out by the Association "Cyclists' Union", which is part of the European consortium Cycle-Friendly Employer Certification. "By encouraging its employees, clients, and partners to use bicycles as a means of transport, Hrvatski Telekom is a positive example of advocating and practicing sustainable mobility and responsibility towards health, the environment, and public space, but also savings," said the Cyclists' Union.
By acquiring the certificate, HT is now in the group of prominent environmentally and socially aware European companies and organizations that have earned this certificate, such as the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing and Ericsson Nikola Tesla and IT and marketing agencies FIVE, 404, and IN2.. The company offers its cycling employees a covered bicycle parking station with more than 100 parking spaces, showers, changing cabinets, a bicycle repair point. Electric bicycles are available for them to go to meetings.
"We are fully committed to creating a better environment for the society in which we operate. Knowing that many of our employees cycle to work, we made an effort and provided them with the best conditions to support their healthy lifestyle, but also to encourage other employees to join them from time to time, especially because there is no better, healthier, and more environmentally friendly means of transport than bicycle", said Igor Vukasović, Director of Corporate Communications of Hrvatski Telekom.
