Hera on top on the web: on the winner's podium alongside two national giants, it is the only Italian utility company in the history of Webranking to have achieved such recognition

The H&H Webranking listing, which for years has seen the biggest Italian industrial groups firmly occupy the top places, was thrown into disarray somewhat by the second place ranking of the Hera Group, which overtook some of the giants that have historically led the way in the financial communications sector.
"This result shows that the ranking positions are not just down to size, but also the commitment and the culture of communications within a company" - explained Sara Rusconi, head of the rankings for Italy - "In particular, the Hera Group launched a change process within the company that resulted in the publishing of sensitive information such as company strategies and the targets achievement, but also risk factors and key information on the management itself."
In fact, Hera was just little more than a point behind the outright leader in the top 100, totalling 87.75 to Eni's 89.
A result that puts it well ahead of all other Italian utility companies and that confirms the company's increasing commitment to improving the quality and transparency of its communications, which are increasingly viewed as strategic tools.
For Hera - underlined Giuseppe Gagliano, External Relations Manager at Hera - the site is the backbone of communications that move with the times and which are attentive to the increasing needs of all interlocutors."
The Webranking analysis, performed every year by Hallvarsson & Halvarsson in association with il Corriere della Sera, evaluates the quality of the online communications of the 100 largest Italian companies by market capitalisation floated on the Milan Stock Exchange and, in this field, represents the most detailed research at European level.
The subject of the analysis is the financial and corporate information and functionalities published in English on the sites.
Each year the research stems from a preliminary survey which, this year, gathered the requests and preferences of 313 professionals from all over Europe (investors, analysts and economics journalists. The protocol was designed on this basis with criteria for judging the sites: this year 140 parameters were defined, subdivided into 3 sections, which attribute a maximum overall score of 100 points.
The final prize giving event will take place on 2 December in Milan.
