As we transition into the second half of 2023, it's time to look back to the remarkable journey that was the second quarter. At Pontica, these three months were a testament to our unwavering commitment to our community, our passion for education, our dedication to sustainability, and our thriving spirit of camaraderie.
A lifesaving gift to our community: AED Donation for Vitosha Metro Station in Sofia
Our quarter began with a powerful act of compassion as we proudly donated an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to the Vitosha Metro Station. In moments of crisis, every second counts, and this donation ensures that our community has access to lifesaving equipment. It's a testament to our belief that a safer community is a stronger one.
Serving with passion: Charity volleyball tournament in Burgas
Competition took a charitable twist as we organized an exhilarating Charity Volleyball Tournament in Burgas. Colleagues, friends, and community members came together, not just to compete but to raise funds for a noble cause. It was a testament to our commitment to making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
Opening our doors: Organizing Open Days at Pontica’s offices
Transparency and connection were at the forefront as we opened our doors wide during the Open Days. Many young, talented, and curious minds, interested to grow their careers, came along for the journey to enjoy a tour of our modern offices, learn about our company's expertise, mission and culture, meet our amazing colleagues, learn from the best through a specially designed workshop, and take home awesome gifts.
Milestone moments: Celebrating one year anniversary of our Burgas office
In the midst of all these impactful initiatives, we paused to celebrate a significant milestone—the one-year anniversary of our office in the sea city of Burgas. It has been a year of growth, achievements, and deepening partnerships with the local community and institutions. We look forward to many more years of success and shared accomplishments.
Sustainability at heart: Caps for the Future initiative
Our commitment to environmental sustainability shines brightly as we actively participated once again in the Caps for the Future initiative. Collecting and recycling bottle caps may seem like a small act, but collectively, it has a substantial impact on reducing plastic waste and preserving our planet for future generations. Furthermore, we all contributed to the good cause of purchasing children’s ambulances for hospitals in need.
Empowering young minds: Supporting a high school in the national translation contest
Education is the cornerstone of progress, and in Q2, we championed it by supporting the IV French Language High School in Varna during the national translation contest. The initiative was about nurturing the talents of young minds, fostering their growth, and fueling their dreams.
Embracing the furry side: Dog shelter visits for our colleagues
Our love for animals was on full display as we organized visits to local dog shelters for our colleagues. These heartwarming encounters not only brightened the lives of our furry friends but also served as a reminder of the joy in giving back and showing compassion.
Nurturing professional growth: 15+ business and career events
As we strive for excellence, we actively participated in over 15 business and career events during the second quarter, including the prestigious Nordic Game, Webit Summer edition, Viva Technology, and Bulgaria Wants You. These events provided opportunities for learning, networking, and staying at the forefront of industry trends and innovations, ensuring that we continue to grow as professionals and as a company.
Overall, Q2 2023 was a testament to our core values—community, education, sustainability, openness, compassion, and growth. Stay tuned for our next recap!
