Answers to the questions of children and their parents

It was chosen to be a Saturday, so as not to affect the daily life of the children and their activities's program and the working parents to be relaxed, without the pressure of work. In addition, as several parents and children live in the area of ​​Kilkis (the company is headquartered in the industrial area of ​​Kilkis), the company undertook the transportation of parents and children by private bus. The meeting was addresses to parents and their children between the age of 14-17, as it is at this age that they are called to decide on their future.

2) Alumil Family Day. The company organized a day of relaxation in an estate in Lefkochori, Thessaloniki for the employees and their families (employees who did not have a family, could attend with their friends). The point was chosen so that it is located in the middle of Kilkis and Thessaloniki, to serve colleagues who live in both areas). During the day, everyone who participated had the opportunity to relax in the beautiful landscape, enjoying coffee in the morning and lunch at noon and then ice cream (drinks and food were plentiful, as it was in the form of a "buffet"). The adults had the opportunity to relax and get to know each other better and the children to engage in either the activities of the area such as archery, climbing, mountain biking, track and field and tree crossings and laser guns. Finally, the younger children did face painting and had fun with clowns and the entertainers.

During the event, the Management of the company honored all the colleagues who completed more than 20 years in the company.

3) Free mammography examinations and breast ultrasound. On the occasion of the World Breast Cancer Day, the company, in collaboration with diagnostic centers, proceeded to free mammography examinations as well as ultrasound of the breast for all its female employees in Greece. The employees were in the area of ​​Kilkis, Thessaloniki, Serres, Xanthi and Chania and had the opportunity within half a year to do the above tests at any time they wanted as well as to receive further information from the diagnostic centers.
