Looking after employees’ welfare is an important way of helping them to achieve the right work-life balance.
Our welfare scheme
In 2017, we made two important changes to the contractual variable bonus system.
- Alongside the existing payment criteria, we included new parameters designed to encourage greater employee participation in achieving the highest possible safety and environmental standards.
- When we renewed our employees’ contracts, we introduced an employee welfare bonus scheme in collaboration with the local employers’ association, Confindustria Verona. This already covers over 80 percent of employees, and will be extended to the whole workforce the next time contracts are renewed. They can now convert their performance bonuses into a wide range of tax-free goods and services designed to improve the quality of their lives. They do this through a website offering a large number of opportunities including healthcare, education, additional social security benefits, and leisure services.
Employee health and safety
We are extremely committed to protecting our employees’ health and safety. Our safety policy provides an effective system of accident prevention and management for all workers. As well as ensuring that we comply with our legal responsibilities, it seeks to make continuous improvements to working conditions.
Since 2007 the group has been taking part in an accident prevention and safety awareness project, in collaboration with INAIL Veneto, involving all food manufacturers in the region. This provides department heads and supervisors with ongoing workplace safety training. In 2017, the project was extended to the Lombardy region in association with INAIL Lombardia.
