Company Initiatives for the Internal Community

The Company’s initiatives for the Internal Community vary from country to country, to respond to the specific needs that are typical of the various social contexts in which the affiliates operate.

Some of the most common initiatives taken at Company affiliates include:

  • subsidised holidays for employees’ children;
  • scholarships and support for the education of employees’ children;
  • company social and sports clubs;
  • preventive medicine through scheduled, specialised medical examinations;
  • awareness and vaccination campaigns;
  • agreements with retailers and health care providers for Company employee discounts.

Details on certain important initiatives undertaken in 2008 are described below.
