Health and safety training: the experience of ICT Poland
ICT Poland organised a month full of events dedicated to training in matters of health and safety, both in the workplace and at home. All employees had the opportunity to participate in a series of workshops and practical activities covering various topics, such as fire risk, chemical risk in the workplace, ecology and separate waste collection, postural education, first aid, etc. The project helped strengthen corporate culture in terms of training and awareness of the importance of safety in everyday life. Working with qualified partners with extensive experience and a high degree of professionalism proved to be beneficial for us, and everyone showed great interest. Finally, it was really important for us to listen to what the participants had to say: they provided useful advice and input for the future.

ICT supports education
At ICT Italia, we recognise the importance of education in achieving professional and personal growth, which is why in 2019 we will once again translate this idea into action with the “Study with ICT” call for applications, aimed at supporting our employees’ families by purchasing school textbooks, from middle school to university, and covering university enrolment and tuition fees for their offspring. This initiative has been in place for several years now and has been very well received by our staff.
