Czech Christmas in Skrivanek
The year 2020 was demanding for most small and large traders and companies. We therefore decided to support Czech entrepreneurs, and we bought Christmas gifts for our clients from Czech manufacturers.
Improving the My Skrivanek online system
In order to improve our services, we also focused on the My Skrivanek online system. What are the benefits of our online system?
- access to information on individual orders;
- statistics, analyses and other outputs;
- overview of orders, invoices;
- online ordering of translation and interpreting services;
- option of online cancellation of hours for language teaching services;
- option of evaluation and feedback.
Online language training for schoolchildren
Covid-19 has also affected the lives of children who are forced to learn at home. That is why we have decided to help parents and their children in teaching languages. Based on the requirements, we select a suitable teacher who will discuss the necessary topics with the school/student. We teach school/students of any age and language level. The lessons are focused mainly on the given school subject – grammar explanation, checking the completed tasks, practice of the previous curriculum and fun supplementary activities.
Skrivanek is again in the TOP 50 largest language agencies of the world
The CSA Organisation included Skrivanek among the largest global providers of language services. In the global TOP 50 ranking, we gained 47th place, and in the TOP 25 category of Eastern Europe companies, we even took 1st place!
Introduction of telephone teaching
We believe that when it comes down to it, the most important thing is to understand and be understood. That is why we decided to extend our portfolio of services to telephone lessons, which are specifically focused on communication in a foreign language. Thanks to intensive 10-minute conversations, your communication skills will develop more quickly and you will not be afraid to answer calls from foreign numbers. Conversations with the teacher will give you self-confidence, and you will no longer find it difficult to speak with somebody from abroad.
Be different, be blue!
In the long term, every year we sponsor the Civic Association ProCit, z.s., which helps families with autistic children, and, for their support, organises a charity event - the family RUN for ProCit. Unfortunately, 2020 and the coronavirus crisis did not allow the fifth year of this run to be organised. On the occasion of World Autism Understanding Day, Skrivanek employees dressed in blue. Why blue? It symbolises the ability to communicate and understand, which are two skills with which people with autism need the greatest support and understanding from the public.
Company weekend for employees
In 2019, the company weekend for employees took place at Hotel Luna in Vysočina. Skrivanek’s employees had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, wellness, fun and interesting activities such as disc golf, teambuilding games as well as yoga, well-deserved rest, and last but not least, the company of their colleagues, whom they do not see very often during the course of the year as Skrivanek’s branches are spread out all over the Czech Republic, and thus the employees can meet very rarely.
