DIVERSITY DAY 2016 AT PIRELLI GERMANY

Pirelli Germany has organised the fourth edition of the Diversity Day. The focus of 2016 edition was sport as an example of diversity and collaboration

The main focus of the Diversity Day, 2016 Edition, was sport. This is a choice in line with the two big events of this summer: UEFA European Football Championship in France and the Summer Olympic Games of Rio.

“These events are perfect examples of a high level of diversity,” says Josef Lottes , Director of Human Resources and Organization of Pirelli Germany GmbH. “From all continents people of all races and religions peacefully come together to compete in fair athletic competitions.”

Starting from this idea, Pirelli Germany has organised a table football tournament dedicated to its employees. In every team, composed by both men and women, different religions and nationalities were represented.
Diversity and integration has always been an important part of Pirelli’s corporate philosophy. German employees come from twenty-four different countries and four different continents, and their age range from 16 to 65 years old.

Diversity creates lots of benefits to employees, both in their daily life and in the relationships with their colleagues at work.

During March and April the third edition of the Image Competition Project took place in Pirelli’s Egyptian plant; teams were challenged to submit creations made using recycled materials.

The third edition of the Project saw the participation of twenty-nine teams –  the number has doubled in respect to 2015 – which presented innovative projects using recycled materials and a limited budget.

The projects realized by the teams had among their main objectives the Egyptian employees’ safety and well-being.

The scoring process took into consideration various criteria, including team work, quality, innovation and sustainability.

The three winning projects saw the realization and the decoration of the relax area, as well as the creation of an automatic security system for the area in front of Pirelli’s warehouse.

Thanks to these projects, Pirelli’s employees could appreciate how it is possible to give a new life to materials which are usually thrown away as waste.

PIRELLI RUNS WITH MEANING

On May 29th Moscow hosted 10,000 charity runners supporting Natalia Vodianova’s Fund. Pirelli employees also took part in the initiative.

In spite of scalding sun the charity race gathered lots of runners accompanied by Olympic and Paralympic Champions, by cinema and show-business stars and by Chief Editors of the leading media.

Pirelli supported the charity money collection having paid for 2 corporate teams (5 participants in each) running 3 and 10 km. Also the Company provided one copy of Pirelli Calendar 2016, which was signed by Natalia Vodianova and presented to the fastest corporate team. It’s the second year in a row when Pirelli takes part in this race. Last year, at the first Moscow race of Natalia Vodianova, total number of participants were 1,500, so just in one year it’s almost 10 times more people participating!

As a result more than 37 million rubles (more than 500 k euro) have been collected thanks to all the participants of the race. Thanks to this money hundreds of the families raising the children with autism, ICP and Down syndrome will get additional help.
