The employees project is the initiative of the Marcegaglia Foundation aimed at the employees of the Marcegaglia Group in Italy. The project, launched in 2013, was created in memory of Cav. Steno Marcegaglia with the desire to give way to his sensitivity towards the human resources and the social context in which the company taps into. Each year, the Marcegaglia Foundation proposes one or more tenders to employees on different themes and for different purposes. Tenders can be made for direct contributions to the families of employees (such as scholarships) or contributions to associations, schools or local authorities proposed by the employees themselves.
