Choosing corporate solidarity gifts means investing not only in your own Corporate Welfare, but also in the community.
This is why we want to tell you, in accordance with its internal contacts for disclosure, the case of SIA s.p.a., an Italian company operating in the ICT sector, providing solutions and technologies for the banking and financial sector, which in 2021 chose our Solidarity Gift Cards.
THE FIRST CONTACT WITH SIA S.P.A. FOR SYMPATHETIC CORPORATE GIFTS
In November 2022, we were contacted by SIA as they were interested in our proposed Solidarity Corporate Gifts and Gift Cards.
After a discussion with our business contact, we officially applied as a service provider to increase Corporate Social Responsibility, and after a few weeks, we received a positive opinion on our application.
Subsequently, again through discussion with Gabriele Vignati, Sales Manager for the B2B sector, the choice leaned toward the purchase of GIFT CARDS, the value of which was also inclusive of shipping costs, so as not to burden them on the Gift holder who would place the order on our Sustainable Ecommerce.
WHAT WE DID IN GIOOSTO
The first action we put in place was to contact our web developer to create a web page dedicated exclusively to SIA employees, where solidarity corporate gifts dedicated to them, established and decided by SIA, were included.
We then created a small digital instruction manual to help less digitized employees use the Gift Card correctly, which can also be downloaded on the dedicated page.
Here is the video of thanks from Brother Marcello Longhi, president of Opera San Francesco.
PERSONALIZED ASSISTANCE FROM 8 A.M. TO 6 P.M.
Once the Gift Cards were issued and delivered to SIA employees, we strengthened the people dedicated to direct customer service.
In fact, on the Gioosto.com website there is a support chat where you can get in touch with our operators who do valuable customer care work, guiding customers in their choice, solving critical issues and offering tailored solutions.
For this reason, just to coincide with the issuance of SIA's Corporate Welfare Gift Cards, we chose to add a new figure to the year-round team in order to process as many requests as possible and offer maximum direct assistance.
Same was the case for the Warehouse at Gioosto , which, to ensure timely order fulfillment, saw an increase in the number of employees present by 3.
THE IMPACT OF SOLIDARITY CORPORATE GIFTS OF BOTH
The social impact of SIA's Solidarity Gifts has been very high and is still growing in the month of March 2022, so only partial results can be given, but they are already excellent and beautiful:
- 4 solidarity entities that provided the products were able to increase and expand their infrastructure,
- Pastificio Russo, chosen to supply solidarity and artisanal panettone cakes, hired two new people (individuals in a state of fragility) and purchased a new oven,
- the work of St. Francis is continuing to receive supplies of basic necessities such as pasta, oil, sauce and much more (worth, still growing, more than 10,000 euros), the reason we explain below.
SIA generously chose two usage options for solidarity Gift Cards for its employees, who could:
- Spend them on your own groceries on the dedicated page,
- Allocate the amount-as a donation-to the St. Francis Work in Milan, which has been committed to providing people in poverty with free assistance and shelter since 1959.
In this way, every month, Gioosto provides basic necessities to the St. Francis Workhouse, all thanks to the generous choice of SIA and its employees.
Of course, a purchase on our sustainable e-commerce via Gift Card also supports wonderful projects; we boast many production entities that put people with cognitive disabilities, prisoners, small-scale farmers and producers from around the world, migrants and political refugees at the center of their work, totaling more than 1,300 ethical and sustainable products.
