Human rights

Diversity, equal opportunities, social awareness and charity.

The Group companies operate in full compliance with current regulations, national collective agreements and following the corporate Code of Ethics. The management of Italiaonline staff is always carried out with respect for human rights, diversity and equal opportunities for all employees, always rejecting any form of discrimination.

Many social awareness and charity initiatives aimed at involving company staff were launched in the first half of 2017. For example, Italiaonline participated in the Progetto Libellula (Dragonfly Project), the first network of companies against violence on women, to promote a new cultural sensitivity. As one of the first entrepreneurial companies to actively participate in the initiative, Italiaonline staff participated in a detailed discussion on the issue of violence against women together with the staff of 13 other important companies. The data resulting from the research constituted the content of an e-book where these issues are addressed from within business organizations for the first time, with enlightening results and food for thought.
