The Gosselin Happiness Team puts a smile on everyone’s face
At Gosselin, we know that happy colleagues contribute to a productive and positive work environment where, in addition to a competitive salary package, extras are part of the basic benefits we offer. This was why the Happiness Team was set up in 2019, and its mission is to ensure that everyone feels valued within the Gosselin family.
“The Happiness Team operates at a Belgian level,” explains Kirsten Fasoel, who has been there from the beginning to guarantee smiles among her colleagues. “We are also happy to show the same appreciation to our Dutch colleagues. This involves a total of almost 700 colleagues we’re happy to give a little something extra to on a regular basis. We also include internal employees. Why do we do this? Because we can!”
An initiative was set up a while back to send fruit baskets to all of the departments every month, a team effort we started with A Fruitful Office. Around the Easter and Sinterklaas holidays, there is invariably candy on everyone’s desks; Verloren Maandag (Lost Monday) is an Antwerp tradition that we honor in our offices, and we always come up with a fun idea for the beginning of the summer. Anniversary or retirement? These auspicious occasions are always celebrated with a meal and/or drinks.
“We started out with a limited budget and boxes of candy we always put together ourselves,” Kirsten recalls. “The Happiness Team has since grown to become a regular fixture at Gosselin and we are always on the lookout for great ideas to emphasize our appreciation for our colleagues.
Are you full of fantastic ideas and does it make you happy to make others happy? If so, the Happiness Team would be happy to have you on board! Feel free to contact HR (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in joining in on the fun with Kirsten and the others!
