We offer both horizontal and vertical career paths. The ways in which these different paths may be undertaken are clearly defined and shared with personnel.
The purpose of IGD’s remuneration policy is to enhance skills and acknowledge the commitment of all individuals in the course of their professional development within the Group.
IGD has implemented a Management by Objectives (MBO) system based on which shared and individual targets are assigned to employees with permanent contracts in both Italy and Romania. If these targets are reached employees will receive variable compensation or a bonus.
In Italy a skills development system is also active for the middle management and department heads which is associated with merit based pay increases. The evaluation is made based on an assessment of different areas of expertise. The sharing of the results provides an important feedback on the work done by each individual.
IGD is also very respectful of the needs of its employees with regard to reconciling work with personal and family needs. This focus translates into the adoption of a series of policies designed to promote balance between work and personal lives.
In 2008 IGD SIIQ signed the “Protocol for the development of positive steps to be taken with regard to equal opportunities, solidarity and reconciling work hours with life space” with labor unions which is annexed to and an integral part of all employment contracts. Based on the protocol, companies must be proactive in providing a series of initiatives relating to, for example, continuous training, support of maternity/paternity, family and personal healthcare commitments, work-life balance and economic assistance in times of need.
Each employee, therefore, can count on measures and means (which range from time off or paid leave to economic assistance) which can be used in the face of specific personal or family needs.
With regard to promoting work-life balance, as part of the Protocol IGD committed to organizational methods which, while still taking into account operational needs, allow for flexible hours and make it possible for employees to manage their own work.
With a view again to promoting work-life balance our company regulations provide for flexible start and stop times.
IGD offers benefit packages in line with the company’s sector which vary based on the position held: from company cars, to mobile phones with subsidized payment plans, as well as different IT tools which facilitate the mobility of some employees. Health insurance is also provided to all of IGD’s employees.
