But before we dive into the details, the most important question:[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”faqbox”]What makes a Social Friday a Social Friday?

  • A Social Friday Activity is more than just a pleasant team outing. The participants get actively involved and make a valuable contribution to the local community.
  • A Social Friday Activity takes place during paid working hours and starts on a Friday before 3 p.m.
  • A minimum number of participants in relation to the size of the company is expected to participate the activity.
  • Whether a company, public institution or student organization – anyone who is willing to make a contribution can organise a Social Friday Activity in cooperation with an NPO (or stand-alone). However, it is not the idea that an NPO is active without a partner.
