It's #PlasticFreeJuly at IT People Group

For the second year in a row, IT People Group joins the #PlasticFreeJuly movement, and takes up the challenge to reduce plastic consumption!

 

 

What is Plastic Free July?

Plastic Free July is a global movement to raise awareness about plastic pollution. The concept is simple: participants are challenged to reduce the consumption of single-use plastics by avoiding their use.

 

 

How to join the movement?

It is understandable that not all of us can totally reduce our plastic consumption during the month, however, we can take small steps such as avoiding the use of straws, bags or plastic bottles!

 

The idea is to become more aware and awake to the problem of excessive plastic consumption, and to make our contribution to reducing it!

 

HERE, you can find some ideas on how to start!

 

 

Some suggestions on how to reduce your plastic consumption

 

  1. Say no to single-use plastics

Avoid straws, cotton swabs, shopping bags, take-away containers, and so on, and so on...

 

 

  1. Use reusable bags

Making your shopping list? The first item might be "don't forget to carry a reusable bag"! Keep them in places where you'll remember them: in the car, in your backpack, at the entrance to your house...

You are at the supermarket and forgot to take your bag? Then choose ones that are made of natural fibers, like cotton, jute, or recycled plastic bottles!

 

  1. Packaged food

Much of the food is still packaged in plastic - but there are alternatives! It is becoming increasingly common to find products packaged in paper, cardboard, or glass, which are generally easier to recycle than plastic. Opt for these alternatives and, whenever possible, choose items that are sold in bulk.

 

  1. Say no to "bottling"

Let's rid the traffic of empty plastic bottles lying under our beds and on our desks! Does tap water taste bad? Filter it! We're sure that you don't need a reminder to always use our little reusable bottle!

 

  1. Party Plastic Free

Disposable plastics are out, but let's also bar confetti and balloons! You have recycled paper decorative options, and you can DIY!

 

  1. Ice cream? In a cone, please!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream... in cone! Unless you have an alternative to the plastic cup and spoon, the cone seems like a VERY viable solution, or not? Who says no to a cookie?

 

 

Will you join us in this movement?

IT People Innovation was recently distinguished as the Happiest Company in Portugal, by the Happiness Works 2022 awards, achieving an Organizational Happiness level of 4.8 (on a scale from 1 to 5).

 

After in our first participation, in 2021, we got directly to the podium with an honorable 2nd place, in this edition, which counted with the participation of 123 companies, we managed to overcome ourselves and cto onquered the title of Happiest Company!

 

This result comes from a survey promoted by the organization of this initiative among employees of the candidate companies, and therefore we couldn't be prouder with the fact that our IT-People feel happy with us!

 

Therefore, nothing better than to know the testimony of some of our team members, so that we can know firsthand what makes IT People the leader in organizational happiness in the country.

 

1. I am happy at IT People because I can always count on the support and closeness of all employees, for the continuous follow-up, for the development opportunities and, last but not least, for the treats we are always receiving 😋😂

Wagner Rosa Cybersecurity

 

2. There is not just one reason why I am happy at IT People, but several: the first is the people. IT People has fantastic people, from my manager Natália to the various colleagues I have dealt with, to the team in HR, management and all the different areas. Another reason is the interaction that IT People has with the employees, in order to make them feel that they are part of the IT People family, and not just mere resources. 😊

3. Being part of the IT People family is being part of a company where the concern for our well-being is a differentiating factor from other companies. It is being part of a family where good mood and mutual help reign.

André Baptista - Outsystems Developer

 

4. I am happy working at IT People because the Team Spirit is extraordinary! 

Sofia Proença Talent Acquisition

 

5. I had never worked as a consultant before and it was challenging to think myself as a service provider, but ITPeople shows me every day that a good company is dedicated to the employee and has, above all, attention to their welfare first and only then think about the external factors. A good employee is the one who feels safeguarded by his entity, feels that they invest in his training and personal/professional growth, and in the professional world in which we currently find ourselves, I can say that I have never felt so safeguarded as since I entered here.

Carla Ferreira Data Analyst

 

6. I could mention countless reasons why I am happy at IT People, but I will start by highlighting the strong proximity, transparency and constant concern for people. Valuing Human Capital is undoubtedly one of the fundamental pillars of the Organization. We feel we belong to an organization that encourages our capabilities, that values us and that defends a work-life blend policy. Being part of a culture based on these values are just some of the many reasons to work at IT People, which was certainly distinguished as the happiest company to work for!

Natália Cunha BU Director

 

7. There are countless reasons why I am happy at IT People, but being a recent mother of two children, I point to the flexible working hours as one of the elements that makes me feel happiest, because it allows me to reconcile my personal and professional life in the best way!

Tatiana Pereira BU Director

 

8. Being happy at IT People is an easy goal to achieve, not just for one reason, but for several: first of all, the camaraderie and mutual help environment that we have, which is also marked by a great sense of humor. Then, the opportunities for growth and development that are provided to me, always based on a career and training plan aligned with my expectations, and also the flexibility and focus on the well-being of each employee!

Pedro Ferreira Business Manager

 

 

9. I am happy working at IT People because the good mood and mutual help is a constant in this team of people who are all top!

Silvia Prates HR Specialist

 

10. There are many reasons why IT People is the Best Company to Work for in Portugal: besides the focus on the well-being and personal and professional development of each employee, I would also highlight the good atmosphere and team spirit, and Talent Tiers, our Talent Management program, which rewards our participation in initiatives, activities, events or the achievement of milestones, with cryptocurrencies that allow us to bid in the periodic auctions that exist, giving us the opportunity to bid for products, services or experiences such as tandem jumps, iPads, extra vacation days, among many other things!

Vera Costa Marketing Manager

IT People Solidarity Basket

At IT People we recognize the importance of carrying out community contribution actions and, therefore, we integrated a solidarity component in one of our initatives.

In partnership with @ESOESTE, we donated 1 kg of products per each employee to CASA - Centro de Apoio ao Sem Abrigo (Support Center for the Homeless) whose mission is to help those who are homeless or belong to families at risk or families in need, providing food, clothing, and social reintegration services.

There were about 170 kg of fresh products, which will be used in the execution of hot meals for the homeless population and integrated in the food baskets delivered to families at risk or in need. 💚

Why IT People is one of the Best Companies to Work For

For the fourth consecutive year we were distinguished as one of the Best Companies to Work For in Portugal, and in this edition we climbed directly to second place on the podium in the "Medium-Sized Companies" category and to fourth place in the overall ranking, and we couldn’t be prouder! 👏🏽

 

Do you want to know why is IT People in the Top 5 of the Best Companies to Work for in Portugal? Let's go! 👇🏽

 

 

#1 - "We are not a company of numbers, we are a company of people"

Who says so is our CEO, Eduardo Vieitas, and it couldn't be truer! The well-being of our employees is the central concern of our business, and so we strive to meet their needs, ambitions, and desires. How do we do it? By permanently listening to each member of our team because we believe that "one size does not fit all"!

 

 

#2 - Our purpose is You

We know that the best companies are made of the best people, and that's why we want to help you prosper and let you know the fundamental role you play in what you dedicate yourself to. That's why we bet on the development of your technical, operational and behavioural skills! Our focus is your evolution! 😊

 

 

#3 - If you're happy and you know it clap your hands 👏🏽👏🏽

In addition to being in the Top 5 Best Companies to Work For, we are also the 2nd Happiest Company to Work For in Portugal, a distinction that was awarded to us based on the results of a survey conducted among our employees! To us organizational happiness is not just a concept, but a motto.

 

 

#4 - Emotional Fitness

We want you to be in your best physical, psychological, and emotional shape and that's why we promote initiatives and accompaniment that incorporate guidance for your well-being, meeting those that are our organizational values and policies! 💪🏽

 

 

#5 – Do I hear other bids?  - Talent Tiers

At IT People we use Talent Tiers, a talent retention program with Blockchain technology that values the companies' goals and increases the teams' emotional salary. How? Through a gamification system in which employees are challenged to meet goals or are compensated whenever they reach milestones. The reward is our Talents, a cryptocurrency that can be used to bid for prizes in auctions that are managed by our AuctionBot. In these auctions we have already bid on IPads, trips to the Caribbean, surf lessons or derbies in a cabin with dinner! And much, much more! 😉

International Coastal Cleanup Day

International Coastal Cleanup Day 2021

September 18th was the International Coastal Cleanup Day, and so IT People partenered with Movimento Claro Oeiras to mark this date with a cleanup action, at Algés Beach, which resulted in the collection of more than 30 kg of garbage:

 

✅ 1.8 Kgs of paper and cardboard;

✅ 2 Kgs of glass;

✅ 4 Kgs of plastic and aluminum;

✅ 26.7 kgs of unsorted waste;

✅ 4.5 liters of cigarette butts;

✅ 2 plastic bottles of cotton swabs.

 

Thanks to everyone who joined us in this beach cleanup, inserted in the Blue Ocean Foundation campaign, which was crucial to raise awareness about the importance of preserving the oceans and coastal ecosystems, and to reinforce the certainty that our everyday actions have an impact on the planet! 🌎
