Pandora, in reality is quite different to it’s mythical heritage.
In Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman that Zeus sent as a punishment after Prometheus stole fire from the gods of Olympus. She married Epimetheus, brother of Prometheus, and he received a sealed barrel, which he then opened out of curiosity. It contained all the misery that spread throughout the world. But at the bottom of the barrel, however, there was, according to Zeus, hope.
In contrast, Pandora’s factory seems to be a paradise for workers. The company was founded in 1982 as a small company importing jewellery from Thailand. It was established by a Danish couple, Per and Winnie Envoldsen.
Currently, the company produces handmade jewellery from precious metals. It’s two factories are home to about 7,900 employees and they are where all the production takes place. Any wasted glass used in the process of jewellery goes to recycling.
Since 2012, in the main factory, you can listen to Radio Pandora. The station’s task is to provide entertainment and news for the staff. It is run by volunteer DJs. Shop Labor, also run by employees, sells everyday items at lower prices than in nearby supermarkets.
Pregnant Pandora employees can attend classes on topics related to motherhood. In addition, the company operates Cooperative Savings. Also available to employees is an education centre with entertainment and library with 15 computers acting as an Internet learning hub for staff.
Pandora was founded in 1982 in Denmark. It has nearly 10,000 stores in 90 countries around the world. Its main market is the United States. They employ about 15,000 people.
