Christmas traditions at Delacon

Christmas gives us the opportunity to pause a moment and look back to a phytogenius year. It is also known as the contemplative time of the year when you come together with family and friends. Speaking of family and friends, social events are one important part of maintaining the Delacon family spirit. Therefore, we will take Christmas as a chance to develop and expand our own traditions.

Rocking around the Christmas tree

Every year, the Delacon Christmas traditions start with the legendary annual Christmas tree decorations, which took place early December. Traditionally, our CEO Markus opens the little come-together by putting the topper on the tree. While eating cookies, drinking punch and having exciting conversations about the upcoming Christmas party, the Steyregg team members decorated the Delacon fir tree with fancy glitter balls, light chains, and sparkling stars. Of course, we did not forget to hang up the most important thing – the chocolate!

Annual Christmas donation

At Delacon, we know how blessed we are: Meeting new people around the globe while contributing to a bigger purpose. Therefore, we want to take the opportunity and give back to others. Not only the management, but also the Delacon team members are engaged with our Christmas donation. This year we will support several projects around the globe: from an educational project in India to water filter installations.

Giving back to others is one of the most rewarding things that cannot be compared to any other feeling.

All good things come in t(h)rees: Christmas parties around the globe

What is the most kept secret within Delacon? You might think our product formulations, but it is definitely the program of our Christmas parties. Only the organizers are fully enlightened about what will be happening. This year not only one, but three Christmas parties took place.

From Austria to Moscow to France: Different locations, same spirit

This year, the Austrian team, joined by the international Product Development & Innovation team, took a journey through the past, present and future. Inspired by Charles Dickens Christmas Carol, we traveled back in time to the beginnings of Delacon, celebrated the highlights of last year and were ready to take a look into the future. Get some impressions from the video! 

Same month different locations: While the Delacon Eastern Europe team celebrated the Russian traditions, the French & EMEA-LA (Europe Middle East and Latin America) team even made it to the top of the world.

What do all Christmas parties have in common?

We really had a good time. Of course, being successful means working hard, but it also means being proud of yourself and celebrating achievements. Therefore, our Christmas parties were the perfect opportunity for us to not only celebrate Christmas but also our successful year 2018.

Cheers to a new year full of phytogenius moments!
