Every year, since 2011, we have celebrated our many talented, dedicated and competent employees in the THORNICO Group through the prestigious THORNICO AWARDS.
Usually, the global THORNICO Award winners are crowned with a special award celebration at our yearly THORNICO Event in Denmark – an event where Company Karma is the wide storyline.
But this year is one for the books. COVID-19 has been a game-changer in so many ways, and one of them has been our way of celebrating the global winners of the THORNICO Awards. Even though we have had to do the award celebrations a little differently, we have had a great experience doing it locally with the nearest colleagues around, lots of heart warmth and good karma.
From a strong field of nominations, the global winners of the three THORNICO Awards categories, Company Karma, Idea and Synergy, have been revealed. Below you can meet this year’s global winners of the THORNICO Awards – who can be very proud of their new well-deserved awards.
Company Karma Award 2020
Marco Dal Santo and Stefano Ranghetto - SANOVO TECHNOLOGY Italy
Marco and Stefano are always positive and kind persons, who have shown a great availability and dedication to the needs of SANOVO TECHNOLOGY Italy. Exceptionally, the two colleagues performed a very long start-up of more than two months for a new big plant in Latvia during the COVID-19 lock-down period. Well done, Marco and Stefano. And thank you for being such committed colleagues, always ready to support your colleagues and spreading good karma within the THORNICO Group.
