MILAN, Italy – Gruppo Cimbali, one of the leading manufacturers of professional machines for making espresso coffee, closes the year with major awards in recognition of the development undertaken in recent years with a particular focus on innovation, digitalisation and looking at women in the workplace.

In Italy, there are 200 companies that put women at the centre of their development policies and Gruppo Cimbali, with its four brands – La Cimbali, Faema, Casadio and Slayer – is one such company.

The company from Binasco was nominated in the category ‘Italy’s best employers for women’ by the German Institute for Quality and Finance (ITQF)

The research, now in its second edition, was conducted on 2000 companies in 45 main areas, including business culture, vocational training and equal opportunities.

This prestigious recognition confirms Gruppo Cimbali’s constant commitment in recent years to supporting women’s success in the workplace.

The company has embarked on a path guided by a Sustainability Manifesto, in line with the objectives of the UN 2030 Agenda, which highlights four main areas of action for its initiatives: People, Product, Planet and Partnership.

With regard to People, the company is committed to ensuring: safety at work for all employees, health initiatives, promotion of culture and direct involvement in the local community, support for social solidarity initiatives and diversity & inclusion activities among human resources.

The company has been supporting projects dedicated to women and work for years, highlighting how the coffee sector and the production of professional espresso coffee machines, although perhaps still unexplored, is rich in opportunities for women too.

‘It’s an honour to receive an award that underlines the Group’s focus on enhancing and supporting women’s talent. Contributing to the development of women in managerial roles is an integral part of our company.

We believe that the presence of women at all levels ensures the Group greater productivity, capacity for innovation and attention to intangible values that are increasingly decisive in terms of reputation’, says Fabrizia Cimbali, CEO of the Group.

‘We’re promoting internal initiatives and external partnerships with the aim of spreading a culture of inclusion that puts women and their valuable contribution at the centre, both in business and in society.’

That’s not all!

This year, Gruppo Cimbali has also been awarded for its innovative and entrepreneurial capacity by the German Institute of Quality and Finance (ITQF) as one of the 300 Digital Stars of Italy 2021/2022.

This nomination is confirmation of the commitment and evolution of the work with a view to innovation, digitalisation and sustainability that the company has been pursuing for more than a year, with the dual aim of anticipating and meeting market needs on the one hand and consolidating its role as a benchmark in this sector on the other.

Digitalisation means looking at technology as a tool for inclusion and accessibility, in order to realise the company’s commitment not only by offering increasingly innovative and up-to-date services and products, but also by offering people a workplace where they can feel welcome, motivated, encouraged and valued.
