Now is the time to appreciate a wonderful colleague who makes your work day better for you and your colleagues.

Do you have a very special colleague? One that is always there for you and your co-workers? Someone who spreads energy, good vibes, or is full of creative and social initiatives?

Then now is your chance to acknowledge it! Nominate your colleague for ‘a clap on the shoulder’ (Skulderklap) from the Foundation Fund for Finansforbundet in Nordea.

It is important that we remember to acknowledge each other - even in a busy day - because it is nice to be and feel valued. Sometimes you can miss an opportunity. Here we hope that Skulderklappet can be the reason why you put into words why your colleague is something very special.

As something new this year, you don’t have to choose a subcategory when nominating a colleague - all options will be assessed on an equal footing. Another change is that you must be at least two colleagues who are behind the nomination - and you can, as usual, be many more (e.g. a team).

Nominate your colleague no later than 20 October

Click here to nominate your colleague - we must have your nomination no later than Tuesday 20 October 2020!

As something new, the form for nominations is in both Danish and English (choose preferred language at the first page).

We hand out a total of six Skulderklap’s, and each winner will receive a scholarship of 5,000 DKK.

On 30 November, we will announce the names of the six winning members.

All nominated candidates are celebrated with breakfast in their department - even if they should not be among the 6 recipients of the scholarship.

On 12 January 2021, the Finansforbundet in Nordea’s board will hand over the scholarships to the six winners.

Only colleagues who are members of Finansforbundet in Nordea are eligible for the Skulderklap scholarships.

30 years with Skulderklappet

Skulderklappet is just as old as the Finansforbundet in Nordea. When Unikreds (the name back then) was established on 12 January 1991, a foundation was created to support members who have made a special effort for their colleagues. It is the employees themselves who nominate their colleagues for the scholarship.

Skulderklappet is awarded around Finansforbundet in Nordea's birthday. In 2021, both Finansforbundet in Nordea and Skulderklappet will be 30 years old.
