Guaranteeing its people the opportunity to grow in a work environment where diversity is considered a value is a priority for the Group, which has launched many initiatives in this direction.
The Inclusion Policy, which was formally adopted in 2019, aims to support multiculturalism and promote equality and equal opportunities, fighting all types of discrimination and condemning any form of harassment. In addition, the Policy sets the goal of promoting meritocracy and fair treatment at all levels, facilitating the development, expression and enhancement of individual potential.
As further confirmation of the commitment in terms of inclusion and diversity, in 2020 the Company has launched a cultural change process focus on diversity and inclusion, which aims, through learning sessions and activities, to promote and raise awareness on the impact of diversity and inclusion in the business.
On the subject of inclusion and disability, Salvatore Ferragamo joined “The Hiring Chain” global campaign, promoted by CoorDown, launching an important job inclusion project at corporate level that led to the inclusion in the Company of a resource with Down syndrome.
Furthermore, the Company has joined Valore D, the first business association in Italy committed to creating a professional world free of discrimination, where gender equality and the culture of inclusion support the growth of the organization itself. Finally, in order to strengthen its commitment to human rights and equal opportunities, in 2019 the Company adopted the Women’s Empowerment Principles promoted by UN Women and the UN Global Compact.
