Corporate social responsibility
The Stentor way
At Stentor we feel that it is important to give back to society as much as we can in order to contribute to its development. This is why we consider corporate social responsibility a matter of good will, not an obligation. We have always been active in working for society and our most significant projects are the following:
- Voluntary waste separation and a cooperation agreement on collecting and disposing of non-hazardous waste for recycling. And voluntary services in collecting paper waste at the company premises
- Regular donations to the Centre for Autism. Donations of didactic and other supplies and equipment used by wards of the Centre in their everyday activities and at the inpatient unit, as well as the organisation of therapeutic horseback riding for wards of the Centre
- Donations for healthcare and general beneficial purposes (costs of therapy and medications / preparations for outside parties and employees – some HRK 25,000.00 donated for these purposes from 2013 to 2015).
- Participation in Croatian Interior Ministry campaigns aimed at improving child safety in traffic and in combating and preventing drug abuse
- Sponsoring socially beneficial activities (bronze sponsor of the publication and conference on the “Challenges of the New Insolvency Act - Closing Gaps or Opening Loopholes?” organised by TMA Croatia in 2015 and a sponsor at the B15 International Translation Conference held in Zagreb in 2015)
- Collaboration with institutions of higher education (University of Zagreb), including our multiannual collaboration with the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences providing 30 hours of hands-on training per student. When employing new staff, we generally select among students who attended training at Stentor, and 80% of these students have been employed in Stentor in the 2013-2015 period
- Intensive employment of people under the age of 30, with the average age of new employees being 26, which is one of the aspects of CSR behaviour.
- Encouraging our employees to use bicycles as a means of transport which does not harm the environment (Stentor provides its own bicycles for employee use)
