As socially responsible and acting according to a sound ethical framework, trifermed has an obligation to act for the benefit of society by performing activities that directly advance social goals. Social responsibility is a duty every individual has to perform in order to maintain a balance between the economy and its ecosystems.
trifermed awards recognise individuals and organisations that wake up every morning thinking how they can improve the quality of healthcare in our society; people motivated by their passion and emotions, with the common goal to develop a better World. The trifermed awards ceremony takes place in Barcelona every June, hosting more than 300 guests coming from different countries and backgrounds in healthcare.
In order to name the winners for the trifermed awards, trifermed has selected a group of panellists representing top leaders from both public and private sectors in the local healthcare region. It is, in part, thanks to that panel that the trifermed awards immediately won recognition.
The creation of the trifermed awards statuette
Designed by Nilza Silva, a Brazilian artist and mother of one of our co-workers, Clara, the Eira represents solidarity of action expressed through collaboration and mutual understanding. In Nilza's words, Eira expresses ‘solidarity not only as activities of the winners of the awards, but also as trifermed’s initiative in creating the trifermed awards.' The statuette features two human forms with significantly different features, holding each other’s hands and touching heads, as homage to 'the acceptance of differences, and a union of people working together to find solutions to problems they are facing in today’s world.'
trifermed awards story
Back in 2005 trifermed began to celebrate its own company anniversary by inviting a few friends to a summer cocktail party. A few years later, the event became well-known locally as the trifermed social evening, which, by the 10th anniversary of the company, hosted more than two hundred guests. In 2015 trifermed decided to go further, taking advantage of the amazing audience and our ethos of social responsibility. The trifermed awards for social impact in healthcare celebrated its first edition very successfully opening the door to a great opportunity to recognise those that work to change the World by improving healthcare.
In 2018, due to the creation of the trifermed awards statuette, we invited all the winners from the past editions of the event to be awarded with their own statuette. We feel really proud of that moment. Thanks to the past editions, the trifermed awards have consolidated their social impact and have come to stay with us for a long time to come. We would like to thank all the attendees, winners and panellists for making this possible.
