Sustainable growth means much more than simply setting and achieving business goals.
Contributing to the construction of a fairer society is a key mission for Verzani & Sandrini. Over the past 50 years, we have made social responsibility one of our main pillars for expansion – including as a way to effectively promote employee development.
By flying the flag of social responsibility, Verzani & Sandrini recognizes the importance of each individual – customer, employee or partner – in its successful journey.
We believe that diversity contributes to building an inclusive environment, raising empathy and experiences and building respectful relationships, since we value and respect the uniqueness of our employees.
