Luxottica receives the “Etica e Impresa 2009” award for its Welfare system
Luxottica, a leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of fashion, luxury and sports eyewear, today announced that it has received the “Etica e Impresa 2009” award for the Corporate Social Responsibility. The award is promoted by Italian trade unions CGIL, CISL and UIL, by Associazione Italiana dei Direttori del Personale (Italian Association of Human Resources Managers) and by Federmanagement.
The Scientific Committee of the award, formed by professors from leading Italian universities La Sapienza in Roma, University Roma 3, SDA Bocconi, LUISS, University of Siena and University Federico II of Neaples, acknowledged Luxottica’s innovative welfare system based on nonmonetary benefits for its approximately 8,000 employees in Italy and strictly linked to quality parameters, which in turn is key for the “Made in Italy” success.
By means of the welfare program, Luxottica has positioned itself as a pioneer within the realm of a new system of industrial relations which pursues the strengthening of the productive system and the improvement of real compensation for all workers while also promoting services for the workers themselves.
