Adding value to products and ensuring the highest quality for customers are priorities for the Bonomi Group and these are the drivers to achieve the highest and most innovative quality standards.
For the fourth consecutive year Rubinetterie Bresciane Bonomi won the Welfare Index PMI award, which attests to the seriousness of the welfare plan implemented by Italian companies.
There are several initiatives that Bonomi Group has been implementing for several years to support the well-being of its employees and work-life balance. These include flexible benefits that provide the employees with a spending budget to be freely used to purchase from a basket of goods and services that meet their needs, such as: fuel vouchers, food, schoolbooks or school expenses, travel or tasting experiences, health insurance and discounts in gyms and kindergartens.
To confirm the group's focus on workers and their families there are also production bonuses available to all employees, planned to increase motivation and productivity, while taking advantage of the tax benefits in force. Another important example of the constant commitment to improving the employees’ living conditions is the sum of 400 euro additional welfare paid out in September 2022 to give tangible support to the rising cost of living.
In addition to the above, a prevention campaign was implemented in 2022 with free medical check-ups held in the company for all employees.
Bonomi Group’s corporate welfare project aims to improve the quality of life of workers, who can therefore contribute more to the success of the company, fostering continuous improvement, without compromising the sustainability of the company.
Widespread well-being inside and outside the company, both personal and physical, means laying the foundations to make employees more effective and efficient in their work. A true expression of the concept of caring for others, which transforms workplaces into environments where it is possible to fall in love with the product and the company.
