For LAMDA Development, proper management of human resources and organizing social, environmental, cultural and educational actions are key business principles.

To that end, actions in social and environmental impact areas are carried out with a strong focus on our people, such as the promotion of recycling in the workplace, voluntary blood donation, employees taking part in voluntary activities outside of working hours, food drives for vulnerable groups, and programmes for the continuous education and training of our employees.

Here are some of the actions carried out by LAMDA Development and our people in 2016:

  • Blood drive, twice a year, aiming at supporting the Blood Bank maintained by the Latsis Group at Laiko General Hospital of Athens.
  • Recycling bins, placed in all areas. Transportation of mainly organic, non-hazardous waste to a compressor. Transportation of various non-hazardous materials, mainly organic waste (pallets, metals, large plastic items) to waste management centres by an associate waste collection company.
  • Training seminars, to provide technical training to our employees and to develop their soft skills. 63% of staff attended at least one training programme. 23 training programmes were organised, providing a total of 380 hours of training. The majority of the staff attended the 7 in-house programmes.
