ICON Multimedia and Palencia Abierta have reached an agreement to launch gift cards for the employees of the technology company to spend during this Christmas season in the proximity commerce and the hostelry in the region. This is an initiative that aims to support the establishments in the city that, in view of the current health crisis, have been affected by the economic situation.
In total, ICON Multimedia has distributed a sum of 1 000 euros, distributed in gift cards of EUR 200 to several of its workers, who have been chosen by their colleagues, in a consensual way through group dynamics, to reward their effort, tenacity and commitment to the company throughout this year.
The awards presentation took place today at ICON Multimedia’s facilities, in the presence of its three founding partners, and the President of Palencia Abierta, María José López, who highlighted that this alternative “is an incentive for local businesses that offer safe and reliable spaces, and a way to diversify spending by being able to use it both in commerce and in the service sector, which has been severely affected during this pandemic.” For his part, Enrique Hornos, CEO of ICON Multimedia said that “this is a way to celebrate and recognize the merit of our workers; and at the same time support Palencia businesses, something so necessary in this difficult year, making Christmas much more collaborative and supportive.”
Palencia Abierta continues with this campaign so that other companies can adhere to this agreement, as well as other establishments adhering to the Association, in order to promote an economic recovery in this sector.
