A “green” office, pleasant workplaces and projects for individual and organizational wellness: an effective and productive corporate project to take as one’s model.
The new offices of Mattel Italia in Milan, at the MAC 567 complex designed by Sauerbruch & Hutton, are low impact and offer pleasant and stimulating working space. The physical space is an integral part of a wider project of Organizational Wellness. Objective data on participation and absenteeism show that this is the right track to follow.
The privilege of working in the first building in Italy certified BREEAM isn’t the only advantage for the employees at Mattel Italia, who spend their working day inside bright, ergonomic and dynamic rooms and, to add to wellbeing, there is even a “Wellness Room” with soft music and relax machines, a “Play Room” and a “Break area” equipped with free water and coffee dispensers .
Space quality is one of the elements within the well-organized programme “Mattel per Te” , that also provides for a “Wellness Training”, meetings with experts to learn how to improve our quality of life.
“The projects started as from 2012 are meant to meet our employees’ needs: to recover the balance between professional and private life, and reduce stress at the workplace – states Annalisa Sala, Human Resource Manager at Mattel Italia. – We are convinced that these projects may reward the daily dedication of our staff, improve their performance and help to make Mattel one of the best companies in the world where to work , as recognized by the magazine Fortune also this year for the fifth time in a row”.
“This philosophy underlies “Mattel per Te”- explains Paolo Davoglio, Office & Facilities Supervisor at Mattel Italia– an integrated programme of organizational wellness supplying practical solutions, immediate and tangible; conceived and developed in Italy, it has already become a reference model for Mattel branches in other countries”.
