Participation

VALUES

COIMA has established the Values Task Force which is comprised of 16 members, all selected from voluntary candidates from all of COIMA’s companies. The main objective is to analyse the company’s five primary values (integrity, independence, excellence, ambitious and rigorous business approach and sustainability) and to create opportunities to ensure that these values are integrated into the day-to-day work of COIMA’s staff.

The Task Force was conceived to solicit widespread participation and rotation of its members, in order to ensure that everyone will have the opportunity to take part. For this reason, each year, the employees are given the opportunity to submit their candidacies.

The following table illustrates the activities proposed by the Task Force and the status of each project:

Progress state of the 2019 initiatives

COIMA GREENER After successfully working in previous years to reduce plastic and paper use, coffee machines that use compostable pods were installed, ensuring further reduction on the volume of non-recyclable waste produced.
COIMA WELLNESS In light of 2018’s success, the training courses held in the polyfunctional room at COIMA HQ were run again on a six-monthly basis with weekly sessions, varying the disciplines offered to respond more and more closely to colleagues’ needs.
COIMA RESPONSIBLE For the third consecutive year, COIMA chose to support the Francesca Rava Foundation, which works to help children in need in Italy and worldwide, by organising a charity sale in the COIMA HQ lobby during the Christmas period.
COIMA KNOWLEDGE SHARING PROGRAM The calendar of the Knowledge Sharing Program, the seminars for updating and sharing of lessons learnt, was expanded with a number of events with external speakers, who presented the latest trends in the sector.

DIALOGUE

Dialogue is one of the fundamental elements for maintaining and strengthening relationships with people, inside and outside the company. With a view to greater involvement of its collaborators and information sharing, COIMA organizes quarterly meetings called "Corporate Updates", dedicated to the performance of the company and of the market and with business forecasts. In this context, together with the CEO and the managers of the company even the youngest can be protagonists by presenting practical cases and new ideas to all colleagues.

In addition to these update sessions, COIMA organizes other less conventional appointments in which employees or external speakers share their experience with regards to issues and real cases, occurring in the context of their daily working life. This is the case of the "Knowledge Sharing Program", promoted by the Values Task Force and structured in periodic appointments that are divided into three categories:

Knowledge sharing - expertise and typical aspects of daily work
Lesson Learnt - Lessons learned from managed projects
Excellent speakers - participation of external speakers to discuss the most innovative topics in the sector

Furthermore, every two years a three-day corporate retreat is held which involves all employees to generate and strengthen a spirit of cohesion, enthusiasm and a sense of belonging. The COIMA Retreat comes from an internal competition, open to all COIMA people, in which various teams compete in the preparation of a proposal that includes both organizational aspects and those related to content. The vote of the colleagues, added to that of a jury in charge, for 2018 has selected Trentino Alto Adige as the winning proposal with the theme "In COIMA to the summit". The program included team building sessions aimed at strengthening relationships between colleagues and addressing common improvement issues related to sustainability and corporate responsibility.

There was no lack of fun moments that helped to immerse the participants in the uncontaminated nature of Trentino Alto Adige, an excellent example of sustainability and attention to the environment, themes on which the foundations of this COIMA Retreat were founded.
