CONSTANT ENHANCEMENT OF OUR PEOPLE

OUR PEOPLE ARE OUR STRENGTH, AND REPRESENT A FUNDAMENTAL ASSET IN OUR ACTIVITIES

For us, making economic and human value coexist in all our activities has always been a fundamental factor. In fact, our company exists only thanks to the work, determination and collaboration of our staff. 

Our people are therefore our strength and represent a crucial asset in our business. 

This is why we always try to grow with them, and pursue our sustainability path. 

We periodically carry out a Climate Work Survey, to monitor the well-being, performance and needs of our team.

DIGITAL BULLETIN

DIGITIZATION WAS THE KEY WORD FOR 2020.

A corporate DIGITAL BULLETIN BOARD was created, a meeting point for all staff, to access: 

  • Multimedia content to stay updated on the market and the sector,
  • Internal online refresher and professional growth courses,
  • Updated content on covid19, dpcm, and best practices for managing stress in this period,
  • Content on sustainability, well-being and health,
  • Digital well being program (see below),
  • Get to know all the staff of each department,
  • New hire: section dedicated to new hires,
  • Company news and events,
  • Sports groups that support a healthy lifestyle: from italpreziosi biking team to the yoga group.

Gender equality

Our commitment to gender equality is constant. Our CEO, Ivana Ciabatti, has always been at the forefront to support initiatives that enhance women’s rights, their potential, their genius and above all initiatives against their violence (Women for Women). 

Our CEO is also a member of
  • Women in Mining UK, which involves women in the mining industry from around the world;
  • Women Empowerment Principles, is an initiative of UN Women and UN Global Compact and consists of a set of principles that offer guidance to businesses on how to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women in the workplace, on the market and in the community.

We support the He for She initiative, a UN Women project that invites men to join to support gender equality. We campaigned internally to invite our employees to join. 

In 2020 we carried out various internal awareness campaigns to increase awareness of the existence of a dramatic phenomenon, namely domestic violence. In a period of great difficulty due to Covid19, with the imposition of the lockdown, many people may have found themselves trapped in their homes. We therefore invited everyone to be sensitive to the issue and to support people who could be subject to it, also giving information on the services that work every day in order to support them 24 hours a day. 

Italpreziosi has always been at the forefront of the fight against violence against women. Every year we support the initiative Women for Women Against Violence Camomile Award, where courageous women are rewarded for their courage in fighting this violence, sharing their own experiences that inspire other women. 

OUR STRENGTH IS COHERENCE.
In line with the sdgs, we have always tried to create equal opportunities and employ women, starting with our team:

From 35% in 2015, today women represent

45% of our workforce.

Transparency and collaboration

We were invited to talk about our commitment to gender equality also at the event organized by UN Women and the Ministry of Energy of Chile.
We are always happy to share our commitment in order to inspire and encourage other realities to follow the same path.
Transparency and collaboration are key points.

Equal opportunities

Our goal is to reduce inequalities, promote equal opportunities and equal remuneration. A differentiated team is stronger and more creative, and allows a better enhancement of each of its parts. It is not only a question of gender but also of generational change.

Wellness and safety

The well-being of our people is a key factor in our business strategies 

In 2020 it continued the company welfare plan. We consider it a useful tool to increase the well-being of our people and their families. 

The COMPANY WELFARE allows us to better meet the personal and family needs of our people, without any burden, through the use of a series of benefits such as: 

(enrollments / fees for kindergartens, schools, purchase of school books, solar fields, etc.)

FOR THE PURCHASE OF GOODS IN KIND
(supermarket vouchers, vouchers and commerce, fuel vouchers, etc.)

SERVICES RELATED TO LEISURE TIME
(entrances to cinemas, theaters, season tickets, etc.)

SPORT
(gyms, sporting events, etc.)

VIAGGI
(travel packages, holidays, hotels, etc.)

CHECKUP DOCTORS

For us, safety is a crucial aspect, and the goal is always to keep accidents at 0 levels, which is why our staff is trained periodically.

DIGITAL WELL BEING PROGRAM

In the face of the Covid19 health emergency, we have opened a Digital Well Being Program, with the aim of supporting staff with activities and training that could support physical and mental well-being in the face of the stress that a difficult period like this has involved. 

Weekly online Yoga and Mindfulness classes were organized open to all staff. 

The “Tell us about your passion” section has been opened to invite you to get to know your colleagues better but also to give positive inputs to the importance of physical activity, especially in a period where moving around is more limiting. 

The company has also sponsored cycling sports suits by creating the “Biking Team of Italpreziosi”, because the challenges, especially if in a group, are increasingly fascinating and satisfying. 

In the monthly newsletter, contents related not only to personal growth, study and work material, but also issues related to the importance of choosing the best practices in our daily life have been included: from our relationship with the environment, to smart spending, good sports practices.
