Our staff's wellbeing

We listen to and value our teams

At Acea we recognise the value of our teams and encourage their growth through a series of initiatives to improve the quality of life inside and outside the company, in line with the objectives of the Industrial Plan and the Sustainability Plan.

We have devised a Corporate Welfare Plan to increase the personal and professional well-being of our people, responding to new social needs.

Measures have been developed in favour of diversity and inclusion, parenting, psycho-physical well-being, economic benefits, prevention and health care of employees and their families and work-life balance, which encourage flexibility at work, increase the sense of belonging and improve the corporate climate as a whole, thanks also to training sessions on the technological-digital transformation processes that the Group is currently implementing.

In may 2023, Acea Group and the trade unions signed the Protocol “Carta della Persona e della Partecipazione di Acea” (Acea’s Charter of the Person and Participation). The agreement aims to develop and enhance the company’s professionalism and individual and collective well-being, investing in skills and competencies as a springboard to address and win the challenges posed by the socio-economic context, as well as to create greater value for the community through people’s commitment.

The new Acea Welfare Plan

The Group Welfare Plan is based on six essential pillars relating to health, work-life balance measures, psycho-physical well-being, supplementary pensions, economic benefits and family.

To promote the Welfare Plan, numerous information meetings were held, actively involving all our people; in addition, dedicated training videos were disseminated on the company Intranet.

Corporate solidarity

Moreover, the Taxi Solidale (Solidarity Taxi) project, promoted in the Rome area in collaboration with the ACLI (Italian Christian Workers Associations) of the capital city, with the aim of bringing concrete help to the most needy families, involved donations of boxes containing food products and medicines by employees and the contribution of former employees as drivers of a Fiat Doblò, loaned free of charge by Acea, to deliver solidarity boxes in the municipality of Rome. In the course of the year, approximately 4,500 families were helped and 10,265 boxes were distributed.

In particular, the Group and association are committed to assessing the impact of corporate welfare plans as an innovative tool for promoting the well-being of our people.

For the next few years, the Acea Group has set itself the goal of developing a social impact assessment regarding the welfare plan, in order to understand the levels of efficiency, effectiveness and quality of its services and measures, as well as the areas for improvement that can derive thanks to a structured and methodologically-based analysis.

In 2023 Acea organised, as host Company, the annual event in collaboration with the HR Community, the largest Community HR of national and international companies.
