Lamborghini is named Top Employer in Italy for 2016

Article by Andrew Christian, on February 12, 2016

Automobili Lamborghini once again is one of the top companies with outstanding workplace environments as well as advanced policies in personnel management. For the third straight year, Lamborghini received the esteemed Top Employer Italy 2015 certification from the Top Employers Institute.

The Top Employer certification program is a year-long process during which the Institute will undertake a structured investigation and verification procedure. Moreover, the Institute will consider nine criteria, which include salary policies, training and professional growth, working conditions and benefits, career opportunities and corporate culture.

The Institute will award the certification only to companies that managed to get the highest scores. Stephan Winkelmann, president and executive of Automobili Lamborghini, remarked that The Top Employer certification validates the carmaker's investment and belief in human resources, which it considers as a cornerstone to facing challenges in the near future like the launch of the third model and the doubling of its Sant'Agata Bolognese site.

The site currently employs around 1,300 people. In 2015, Lamborghini tapped around 150 highly-qualified technicians and specialists, and in the last five years, the carmaker hired nearly 600 people via open-ended contracts. Lamborghini has been driven by its Ethical Responsibility, which is having a "virtuous circle" of people in the management team that aims for continuous improvement.

Umberto Tossini, Human Resources and Organization Manager at Automobili Lamborghini, remarked that motivation and attractiveness are various faces of the same coin, as they are the foundation of several initiatives concerning employees and their well-being as well as important partnership with universities and schools to create a place where working and academic life meets.

Furthermore, the carmaker is concentrating on future generations as well as on its home region by inking several partnerships with local institutions, among which the Dual Education System Italy (DESI) project is playing a big part. This DESI project strives to foster an educational path based on the dual model that combines scholastic education with in-house vocational training.

With the DESI project, students are given an opportunity to develop the necessary skills for obtaining both the secondary school diploma and qualifications, thereby enabling them to get a job placement. The DESI project will award the first certificates in July 2016. In fact, the next project is already proceeding.

Furthermore, Lamborghini has been acknowledged as a model for union relations, as evidenced by the continuous dialogue, transparency and cooperation between the company and its unions. Because of this, the Integrative Company Contract -- offering better working conditions for the carmaker's employees in Sant'Agata Bolognese – was renewed in May 2015.
