DNA’s employee benefits
A wellbeing staff that enjoys their work is our most important asset. That’s why DNA works hard to streamline employees’ everyday life and provide useful benefits.
Benefits for family life and leisure
Gubbe employee benefit for supporting older family members
Gubbe is a new kind of non-medical elderly service which keeps the elderly active, helps with everyday chores and keeps company. The objective is to reduce the family’s concern over a loved elderly. A typical situation is that it’s not possible for an employee to visit the elderly as often as they want or need to. DNA subsidises 50% of the service’s monthly costs.
Grandparental leave is a week-long paid leave for DNA’s own staff and agency employees. The leave is intended for a grandparent or a great grandparent to spend with their grandchild and help out with the everyday life of a family with children. The leave must be held in one period within one year from the birth of the child. DNA employees who became grandparents in a stepfamily or through adoption are also entitled to the leave. In this case, the leave must be taken within one year of the child becoming a member of the family and applies to children under the age of 10.
Home care service of a sick child
DNA has made an agreement for home care service of a sick child. The service is an alternative to the parent staying at home when their child becomes ill. The benefit for home care of a sick child is paid for by the employer and exempt from tax for the employee. Therefore, it is free. The childcare service is available for children aged 0-9 on weekdays for a maximum of three days per disease.
Occupational wellbeing and other special days
DNA organises a wide range of occupational wellbeing days throughout the year for both employees and their families. For example, in 2019, we organised an afterwork evening for friends and family of DNA employees and a Linnanmäki Day for families. In 2020, the entire staff is once again going to Vierumäki for a weekend of sports and recreation. In the past years, DNA has also organised a Bring your child to work day once a year.
DNA sponsors the sports of its employees’ children
As a family-friendly employer, DNA has decided to focus all of its small sponsorship support on the sports activities of the employees' children. There are already more than 1,600 DNA employees all over Finland, so this way the support can be targeted at numerous teams and various sports around the country, while promoting sports and exercise activities of young people. The child's sport can be any team or individual sport, but there must be a club or association of some sort behind the hobby through which the support is paid.
