The wellbeing of our employees and their families is extremely important to us. EasyLife is a web portal through which the company offers its people numerous services and discount facilities. Buying school textbooks at discounted prices, car-pooling with co-workers, finding a baby sitter, discounts on Trenitalia and Alitalia tickets, and preferential rates in cafes and restaurants near company offices are just a few examples of what the portal offers.
Another work-life balance initiative we’ve introduced is this tool that offers all our co-workers greater flexibility in their working hours, more independence in managing when they arrive and leave the office and, in the summer period, the possibility of long weekends.
This project allows employees to donate working hours to voluntary aid causes. The idea came from our co-workers and is inspired by the desire to devote time to others.
Working in partnership with the MilanoAltruista network, we launched Will, a web portal that allows users to choose and register for voluntary work experiences.
An innovative organisational approach that we introduced with our Volta project, which has a mission to improve organisational effectiveness and flexibility through trust and responsibility, encouraging working by objectives, promoting a good work-life balance, and developing engagement and motivation. Today Sisal has about 800 smart workers and intends to extend this working method to even more of the corporate population. This project won us the Smart Working Award 2016, presented by the Politecnico di Milano School of Management’s Smart Working Monitoring Unit, as a best practice in terms of flexible working, communication and target group engagement.
3. EDUCATIONAL GUIDANCE Push To Open
A project for parents and children with the aim of providing real-life tools for orientation and to choose study and career paths with greater awareness. It offers parents a guide to providing their children with effective support when they have to make choices and as they grow, and helps children improve the general skills increasingly in demand in the employment market.
4. SUPPORTING PARENTHOOD Digital parents
This educational program for Sisal parents is designed to develop their digital skills so they can then advise their children on the informed and healthy use of digital technology and tools.
Originating in employees’ responses to a survey on physical wellbeing, Gympass is a platform offering preferential rates and flexible subscriptions at over 14,000 sports centres. Sisal employees can choose their sport and also extend the subscription to another member of the family. Over 500 employees currently use the service.
An online course with video and audio content presented by an expert in meditation. Topics covered include stress reduction, stimulating creativity and recovering interior energy.
Launched during the Covid-19 emergency, the #IlMedicoOnline service is still available to all Sisal employees. The initiative provides online video-consultation via the Centro Medico Sant’Agostino in Milan. Accessible online healthcare helps keep the entire community healthy and avoids the stress of organising a visit to a doctor. Consultations are integrated with digital records of medical history, prescriptions and reports.
