Building upon last year’s success, on February 25, Aptar’s divisions in Chieti, Pescara and Milan, Italy, were again recognized as Best Workplaces Italia 2016 by the Great Place to Work® Italia Institute.
Representatives from Aptar’s divisions in Italy attended an unveiling ceremony where they learned that Aptar Italia ranked 12th in the overall large company ranking and 3rd among manufacturing companies. To decide this year’s ranking, Great Place to Work® Institute analyzed 109 Italian companies, giving voice to more than 40,000 employees.
“This is again a wonderful achievement,” said Aptar’s sponsor, Enrico Bonelli, Operations Director for Aptar Chieti and Aptar Pescara. “Again, our very positive environment, our culture and our day-to-day commitment made the difference. We are all super proud!”
To achieve this recognition, as with the first award, Aptar’s Human Resources Department organized a Trust Index Survey and Culture Audit Assessment for the employees at Aptar Chieti, Aptar Pescara and Aptar Milan, which assessed the five dimensions of the internal environment and culture: equity, credibility, respect, camaraderie and pride. As in the previous year, Aptar had a very strong participation with the audit and the results showed an extremely high level of commitment and sense of belonging from employees.
“We are even more excited this year because we were up against some of the largest and most advanced multinational companies of Italy in business fields such as IT, R&D and Services,” said Chiara Ferri, Regional Human Resources Director. “The competition was extremely tough and complex, and yet we ranked higher this year. This is a testament to our employees, our very best asset, and to the important improvements we put in place to continuously improve our working environment.”
