Younite employee impact program

YOUNITE is Telia Company’s employee engagement program focused on sustainability. YOUNITE activities build internal awareness of our sustainability agenda and enable our employees to get closer insight into the impacts that Telia Company have on the markets we serve.

We want all employees to be proud of our contribution to the environment and the societies where we are present. Through YOUNITE, employees are given the opportunity to devote one day per year to engage in activities connected to digitalization and our contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

During the pandemic, YOUNITE activities have been digital and we focus on scaling our impact by equipping our employees with skills to bring to their local communities. Recent digital activities in YOUNITE have included:

Promoting the building of digital skills among children and youth: We engage employees in learning about online safety for children for our employees to contribute in the local environments to children being able to explore and benefit from our services in the best possible way. Through inspiring to learn digital skills, we contribute to SDG4: Quality education, and also to SDG3: Good health and well-being.

Empowering employees to take climate action: YOUNITE invites employees to explore how technology and digitalization can be used to take action for the climate. We engage employees in learning about the importance of climate action, and to take individual and team action using digital tools. Through this, we contribute to SDG13, among other climate-related SDGs.

Actively promoting digital inclusion among seniors: We engage employees in learning about how to teach digital basics to seniors in their communities and give them the tools to scale their knowledge to the groups who need it the most, thereby contributing to SDG10: Reduced inequalities.

Supporting diversity in the ICT sector: We invite employees to learn and engage around the importance of diversity in our sector. We encourage our employees to actively engage in diversity and inclusion topics and events to inspire others and to drive change. Supporting SDG5.
