In 2014, iGuzzini introduced World Class Manufacturing (WCM), a substantial investments programme for technology and training, which has involved every single employee of the company. The adoption of WCM led to the signing of a supplementary company contract stating that a portion of the employees’ compensation is determined on the basis of two factors: company economic performance and efficiency increases obtained through the implementation of the programme. At the same time as the introduction of WCM, a welfare programme was also set-up via a special fund for the purchase of goods and services adapted to the specific needs of employees and their families.
Besides the signing of a supplementary company contract, which envisages new remuneration policies and results-based bonuses, the adoption of WCM also led to flexibility in terms of working hours and the launch of a welfare programme through a special fund for goods and services adapted to the specific needs of employees and their families.
Internationally recognized since 1991, the Top Employers Institute is headquartered in the Netherlands, and has been operating in Italy since 2008.
