At KB Components, we never miss an opportunity to celebrate. For example, we celebrate good results with cake, or as we did recently, a really delicious “hotel” breakfast served in our lunch restaurant.
The company celebrated its 70-year anniversary in 2017 by organizing a family day for all of our employees and their families along with retired employees. Over 650 people participated in the event, and we had activities for both adults and children including: guided production tours for all guests, great food, live music, quiz walks, face painting and an inflatable bounce house for the children. Products from KB’s history were exhibited as well as a new XC60 with all the components we produce here at KB clearly labelled. The day was very popular with our visitors of all ages.
We encourage each department to foster a sense of community. The company contributes a small amount per employee and year for joint leisure activities within each department.
Once a year, we close production early for our annual staff party and spend some quality time together throughout the evening. The majority of our employees usually participate in these events.
After-work events are organized a couple times a year at the departments, usually on the initiative of a couple employees.
Some employees are exceptionally talented in baking and enjoy inviting their colleagues to a joint spontaneous breakfast or coffee break.
We organize local sports tournaments and allow everyone to sign up their teams. This has become a popular event for spending some very relaxing time together. After a while, we may fire up a grill and share a meal together.
