Thanks to the new pleged agreement with Azzano San Paolo’s Papa Giovanni XXIII Children’s Polo, Automha supports its working parents.
The bond between Automha and the territory of Bergamo grows and solidifies itself day after day. In fact, an agreement was just made with the Asilo Nido Gianni Rodari (Gianni Rodari Nursery School) and the Papa Giovanni XXIII Kindergarten in Azzano San Paolo.
The decision comes from Automha’s strong inclination towards educational and cultural initiatives of which its workers can benefits, and that becomes part of a larger context. The business leader in the intralogistics and automation sector believes firmly in the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility, in which it’s active by now for many years, with projects in sports, environmental, cultural and educational environments.
Thanks to the close agreement between the two companies, for the next three years, all the business’s employees will have favorable rates equal to those reserved for Azzano San Paolo residents, the town in which the Automha headquarters is located.
“The synergy that was created between education, institutions and companies in that area has given life to a positive driving-force that we hope can spread like wildfire throughout Italy” comments Roberta Togni, the General Council and CSR Officer at Automha. “We are enthusiastic to take part in the action that looks to value and recognize Azzano San Paolo, and we believe it’s fundamental to share this milestone with each of our employees by means of a parental aid. The agreement is born with the goal of helping the work-life balance of all the company’s working parents: “Our goal is to have each of our employees to be able to work with peace of mind. Only in this way can we be certain to continue to improve ourselves day after day and generate a positive impact on our area and the people that live in it” continues Roberta Togni.
Declarations which echo the words of Giuseppe Vadalà, Polo Educational Coordinator at Papa Giovanni XXIII Kindergarten in Azzano San Paolo: “Each project brings with itself a transformation, it accompanies it, it nourishes it, and it observes it. And this school represents a community project, that is surely “the children’s place” but not only that! A school that is “the community’s place” able to promote well-being in a communal sense, to generate health and well-being, to create relationships that start from and create with infancy.
However, it’s not the first initiative put in action to support working parents. In January 2020, a measure was introduced that foresaw a 25% reduction in working hours, with equal pay, for all mothers with children between the ages of 1 and 10 years old.
