Gruppo Mastrotto awards 13 scholarships to as many deserving students selected from the children of its employees
The fifth edition of the venture, launched by the Arzignano tanning Group in 2017, aimed at rewarding boys and girls who have particularly distinguished themselves through scholastic commitment and dedication.
Thirteen scholarships for academic merit were awarded by Gruppo Mastrotto to the children of some employees, young and promising students belonging to the last three years of High Schools and the first of University, who during the 2021-2022 school year have distinguished themselves for their achievements.
The initiative, which began in 2017 and has been repeated annually to date, is part of the « People, Next Level » corporate welfare project, which focuses on people and their professionalism, confirming how corporate social responsibility (CSR) is now a real asset for the Group.
For some time, in fact, the company has been on a sustainability path, renamed Sustainability Journey, aimed not only at achieving objectives in the economic and environmental spheres, but also in the social sphere, as evidenced by the recent achievement of the DNA – Difference in Addition award assigned to the Group for its social and work inclusion project. The awarding of scholarships to the children of particularly deserving employees, therefore, confirms Gruppo Mastrotto’s desire to put people at the center, also investing in the new generations.
