Better Lives, Better Lifestyles

For four years in a row, Gucci has been awarded the Top Employers Italia Status. But we are striving to improve further. We believe that we should help our employees to enjoy a healthy work-life balance. That’s why we have created a Welfare Commission, tasking a group of employees to build on our current welfare plan.

We asked them to suggest additional services for employees in Italy with families, and to promote good health and free time for all our employees in Italy.

The guidelines we have developed have improved working hours and have reduced employee travel through video conferencing. We’re pleased to say that our people now get to spend less time away from home.

Health and safety is important to us too. We are enhancing our efforts, in accordance with the international standard OHSAS 18001 as specified in our Health and Safety Policy. We have also established a Social Performance Team that ensures continual improvement of our social performance, in accordance with The SA8000 Policy.

We have also introduced a new Global Parental Policy. This framework provides Group-wide standards for maternity, paternity and adoption leave. It covers more than 38,500 employees around the world.

Regardless of their personal situation, every employee who has been employed at Kering for at least 12 months is entitled to fourteen weeks fully paid maternity and adoption leave, and five days fully paid paternity or partner leave. Our Global Parental Policy is available here.
