  • WelfareHextra

    In 2016, HEXTRA was launched, the integrated corporate welfare system for all Group companies consistent with corporate culture and values capable of increasing the individual and family well-being of employees from an economic and social standpoint.

    The initiatives and services proposed during 2018 can be classified within the following macro categories:

    • Health and Health Care
    • Insurance and Social Security
    • Educational support / Assistance for children
    • Individual Services
    • Well-being and Income Support
    • Hera Solidale

    The new Plan provides for the introduction of a flexible welfare quota, a "budget" equal for all employees with whom the company provides everyone with the possibility of composing their own choice of individual initiatives within the six macro categories identified. You can, for example, get reimbursement of some medical expenses incurred, supplement your contractual pension fund, purchase goods and services such as cinema / theater subscription, gym membership or extra-professional training packages and get a refund for the educational expenses of their children. In addition, an additional per capita investment is foreseen for employees who have children of school age, making available an additional quota to be used exclusively for educational expenses, from nursery to university.
    Hera's welfare offer continues to be enriched, with the introduction of new initiatives and opportunities to meet with employees and their families, with particular attention to the world of education. From 2018, university scholarships were introduced for the children of the most deserving employees and, from 2019, thanks to the collaboration with Intercultura, the project was enriched with scholarships for stays abroad.
