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 pat on the back’ (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.

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 15 October

Click here to nominate your colleague - we must have your nomination no later than Friday 15 October 2021!

The form for nominations is in both Danish and English (choose preferred language at the first page).

There are few limits, so tell us why your particular colleague deserves to be among the six members who receive a prize of DKK 5,000.

We hand out a total of six Skulderklap’s, and each winner will receive a prize 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 prize.

On 12 January 2022, the Finansforbundet in Nordea’s board will hand over the prizes to the six winners.

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


Usually the Skulderklap winners are physically celebrated. The pandemic meant that in January 2021 the winners were celebrated virtually. Once again: Congratulations!

Extra happy and touched

Armin Balic from Vesterport Service was one of the six colleagues who received the Skulderklap in January 2021. He told Finansforbundet in Nordea's member magazine that he was extra happy and moved to be among the recipients:

“I have worked for Nordea for almost ten years and have seen many other colleagues receive the prize. I have rejoiced on their behalf and thought that something more was needed than what I was contributing. Besides, I never tend to win in anything, not even when I play UNO with my daughter”.
