Training is for us the key tool for developing and enhancing competences, competitiveness and responsible innovation.
We periodically analyze the training requirements of our employees and develop specific training courses for their needs. A journey that starts from the first day of work through onboarding that helps new employees to become part of the company.
Euro Company wants to offer its employees a young, well-curated, comfortable environment. The business and managerial style is informal and there is easy access to business leaders. It’s a young environment, where the average age of staff is 40 and there is a strong female presence at just under 60% of the company’s staff.
That is why we have established a results award to give maximum recognition to the best work performance.
We organize free courses on correct balanced nutrition, healthy lifestyle, child nutrition, sports and exercise. The courses are open to all employees and involve the participation of nutritionists, pediatricians and experts from a variety of disciplines.
Given the importance that Euro Company attaches to family values within our company, the company offers all new fathers three additional days of parental leave on top of statutory leave, all completely at the expense of the company.
All Euro Company employees have 8 hours of paid leave per year to volunteer at an association of their choice.
The environment is our home and the goal of Euro Company is to encourage a positive behaviour.
The following projects have been set up for this purpose:
• Community Day: together with Italy’s environmental movement Legambiente, our employees are involved for a day on environmental education, during which they will clean our parks and beaches of plastic
• Ecological laboratories: activities designed for employees’ children to make decorations and objects from recycled materials
• Green energy promotion: training linked to the promotion of renewable energies and incentives for electric mobility.
Euro Company is a member of and participates in the initiatives of the Fondazione Libellula, a network of companies committed, each in their respective areas of operation, to promoting a culture against gender violence by fostering appropriate language and forms of respect.
Euro Company is running this project to encourage sustainability via a network of filtered water fountains in its working environments.
For it, each employee is given a steel water bottle.

Sustainability and waste reduction are a commitment in even the simplest and most ordinary activities.
That’s why at Euro Company we introduced coffee machines that use beans and whose only waste product is coffee grounds, which are 100% compostable.
All 192.280 coffees (yes, altogether we drank that many in 2021/22) are provided by the company free.

At Euro Company there is a laundry service that, thanks to our collaboration with 1oraLastor, can offer delivery and pick up of employees’ garments to be washed, ironed or mended directly at the company.
The service can be used by all employees for both work and personal clothing. It is thus possible to offload some of the household chores and have more free time to spend on more enjoyable activities.
There are numerous special deals with local services, such as gyms, shops and other commercial activities.
All employees can benefit from big discounts on the products purchased on the Euro Company’s Frutta&Bacche ecommerce site, regardless of type or quantity.
Euro Company provides a free service to assist in the compilation of tax returns – a task that can often prove complex and for which it aims to provide practical support to all employees.
In June 2023 we inaugurated our Parco Ossigeno, made up of various spaces dedicated to our employees. The gym and playground for physical well-being, the relaxation area – with the library, table football, tennis table and other games – for mental well-being and conviviality, the training room and the show cooking area for training and growth; each place with its own specific function, with a view to continuously listening to the people who live at Euro Company.
On March 2022 we have been awarded by Coop Italia, achieving first place among over 400 suppliers, participating in the first edition of the Close the Gap award, a prize dedicated to ethics and gender equality, part of the homonymous Coop campaign on gender inclusion and the reduction of differences.
Subscribed by the Member States, the Sustainable Development Agenda sets 17 Universal Goals to be achieved by 2030 to combat hunger and poverty, combat climate change and promote social and economic development.
With our commitment to consumers, we contribute to the achievement of 7 of the 17 aims set.
