As an established tradition within both Wind and H3G, Wind Tre employees participate to solidarity initiatives promoted by the company, both in terms of direct participation and shared choices.
Thanks to a valuable partnership with the Italian Red Cross and AVIS, Wind Tre employees can twice a year participate to the blood donation
days at the company offices in Rome, Milan, Ivrea and Pozzuoli. A simple yet extremely important solidarity gesture. Remaining on the topic of healthcare, every year in May Wind Tre employees participate in Rome to the Race For the Cure
, the fundraising marathon for the fight against breast cancer and for raising public awareness of the importance of prevention. Wind Tre makes a matching donation equal to the same amount paid by its employees for their registrations.
Every year, from May to November, some Wind Tre professionals can dedicate, as mentors, more than 100 hours by scholastic institute involved to training, meetings and discussions on the most relevant current issues useful for work, in the initiative Wind Tre adotta una scuola
(Wind Tre adopts a school), conducted in collaboration with Fondazione Sodalitas in the cities of Milan, Rome, and Naples.
It’s a training and professional programme lasting 7 months that accompanies the pupils from the 4th to the 5th year of upper secondary school and, in parallel with the school syllabus, helps them acquire many of the skills necessary to successfully enter the world of work, by favouring the development of their personal attitudes and allowing them to experiment with real work situations, as a factor of choice of their professional path and/or further studies. Students are followed by their own mentors, with personalized questionnaires and the simulation of job interviews for discovering their expectations, in preparation for their two weeks summer internships with Wind Tre or other companies, that allows the kids involved to discover the company world at 360°.
Through the “Insieme Si Può
” (Together We Can) initiative, every year from September to December all Wind Tre employees are engaged in the process of proposing and voting on the solidarity initiatives eligible to receive a contribution from the company, through the corporate intranet. This shared method of selecting the charity favors the initiatives located near the corporate offices, where the employees can participate as volunteers.
The special Committee of the initiative, made up of experts from various company functions, is in charge for the legal and organizational aspects, and verifies the compliance with the initiative’s regulations of the non-profit proponents and of the submitted projects. In the 2017 edition 40 project proposal were collected, and the Committee ultimately admitted 30 projects to the final vote on the corporate Intranet. The three most voted projects, plus the most voted among the projects with a focus on the earthquake that struck central Italy in 2016, were financed by the company.
