JSC ELEM IS AWARDED WITH THE NATIONAL PRIZE FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IH THE CATEGORY “INVESTMENT IN THE COMMUNITY”
The award as part of the project “Social responsibility of the companies”, co-sponsored by the EU, is conducted by the Ministry of economy in partnership with the Macedonian foundation for development of the companies, Macedonian chamber of commerce and the association Konekt. Our company was awarded with the national prize for social responsibility in the category “Investment in the community”, the highest recognition given by the Coordinative body for social responsible practices. The award has been granted to ELEM for donating a microscope to the University otorrinolaringology clinic.
Consistently with the adopted declaration, the company, within its capabilities, generously supports the development of the social activities as an essential condition for growth and development of the country, and also as improvement of the quality of life for all citizens and developing the environment. More than one decade there hasn’t been an investment in new equipment in the Otorrinolaringology clinic. Quality of the services in the public health cannot be accomplished with old equipment and this is why the donation for the Otorrinolaringology clinic was a priority.
This optical microscope is part of all world clinics and it is expected to be used for around 2.500 surgeries annually. The microscope features a high precision laser and a robotic surgery module. The interventions with this laser are conducted with high precision hence the surgeon only gives the coordinates. For the first time the clinic will have an operative archive because each surgery will be recorded on the hard drive and will be used for training and education. The people and their wellbeing will be in the focus of JSC ELEM as a social responsible company.By donating this microscope,JSC ELEM gave significant contribution towards implementation of new and sophisticated operative techniques in both Otorrinolaringology clinic and the Macedonian health system.With this 4 million denars worth donation for the Otorrinolaringology clinic, we gave contribution for increasing the quality of health services in this institution and for improving the efficiency of medical treatments for the people. This prestige award will be encouragement to proceed with our help for the community within our capabilities. Apart of the first prize in the category “Investment in the community”, JSC ELEM got two more recognitions in two other categories, “Preserving the environment” and “Customer relations”
