With the knowledge that our company’s business and the wider social context are interconnected, last year we incorporated a multi-faceted strategy of Social Responsibility into our daily activities, which contributed to the strengthening of social cohesion and the creation of sustainable development.
From the wheelchair … to Iron Man!
In Manifest we are delighted to be proud that all members of our team are unique. They are distinguished for virtues that are either rare or accompany greatness of soul. Each one has his own story. Like Lefteris Dimos, our Lefteris, the Iron Man of Manifest.
They once told him that he would never walk again. And he answered, “see me in the triathlon”. Manifest is a proud sponsor of Lefteris at Iron Man in Copenhagen. See his story and you will understand why.
“On 18 August 2019, thanks to Manifest support, I will be able to get to the start of Iron Man in Copenhagen. I am grateful to Dionysis Ammolochitis, who has believed in me from the first moment we met, he believes in my goals and helps me to make them true. He also believes in my knowledge and skills to work together professionally. At this moment I am responsible for the team that has undertaken all the supporting work in the new Astir in Vouliagmeni, the Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, a project that prides itself on the company and me as well”.
The character determines success,
defines faith and everything starts from there.
Lefteris, good luck!
Manifest is proud to sponsor a potential future Greek sports champion

In this context, the company undertook the sponsorship of Maria Karvouniari, rewarding her progress so far but above all the dedication and hard work she has shown to achieve the highest level of success.

How to raise smart children with your heart
The amount of guilt that the modern parent carries in striving to balance between his desire to be constantly close to his children and the ambition and necessity of survival that pushes him to stand out in his work, is easily perceived as it is part of the daily routine of the majority of employees.
The question of all, if and how can they fill the time gap that hurts the parent-child relationship, came to answer Dr. Kalogerakis’s experiential seminar. An attempt by top executives that distinguished a problem of modern society and joined forces to find solutions for a better world.
Dr. Kalogerakis gave generously emotion, knowledge and food for thought to those who attended Pallas on 5/11. He pointed out that the primordial power of self-improvement pushes man to transcend his boundaries and to create energy with a strong sense of purpose. He reminded parents that the inexhaustible love for their children is the core of their upbringing and stressed that their own “tomorrow” has not yet been discovered, but will certainly be based on more essential principles than “today” as is.
Manifest was proud sponsor of the seminar that not only gave mental strength to working parents, but the total revenue was allocated to the purpose of “All together we can”.
Manifest in Greece, as well as other companies in 18 European countries for 2018, participates in the European action Job Shadow day. It is a action that brings together potential workers from vulnerable social groups and employers to promote the positive contribution of these people to work, giving equal opportunities in employment and breaking stereotypes.
Manifest, after informing people from Margarita Foundation, for soft services and in particular facility cleaning, organized on 25th and 26th April a visit to customer facilities. During Manifest’s cleaning, Margarita’s young people had the opportunity to learn about the exact professional cleaning services on spot.
