The companies in which Italians would like to work, awarded by Randstad Employer Brand 2022, are: in first place Ferrero for safety at work and employee well-being, in second place Thales Alenial Space, excellence in the quality of work content and in third position Automobili Lamborghini, best for benefits, salary and reputation. Other companies in the ranking are Ferrari, pleasant working atmosphere, Eli Lilly for work -life balance and Accenture, the possibility to work remotely.


The Ferrero Foundation, established in 1983, still asserts itself today as an example of an innovative and constantly evolving company with a particular focus on the needs of its employees. It focuses on providing employees with services that are beneficial to achieving a work-life balance. Among the services offered to employees are: free paediatric check-ups for employees, a home care service for the elderly, pathways to return to work after maternity leave or a long absence, and internships and scholarships for employees’ children.

Another socially interesting service provided by Ferrero, at the Alba site, is the crèche open not only to employees but to the entire territory, in a vision of corporate welfare aimed at the community.

Ferrari, in 1994, embarked on a corporate wellness project aimed exclusively at drivers, engineers and technicians. The programme included personalised training, screening and check-ups, the aim was and is to preserve psychophysical well-being.  In 1999, given the success and excellent results, the programme was extended to all 2700 employees. The project was also replicated by other companies such as Fiat and Maserati.

In the following years, projects were launched in Ferrero and in various companies with a focus on specific issues, such as allergies or the prevention of chronic diseases typical of women. At Fiat, the ‘Benessere donna’ project includes periodic screening for breast and uterine cancer.


Randstad’s research, on the level of attractiveness perceived by potential employees, shows that among the most significant requirements when choosing an employer we find: tied with 65% are work-life balance and a pleasant working environment, for 61% remuneration and company benefits, for 58% job security and to close with 54% the visibility of the career path.

Eighty per cent of workers consider the acquisition and improvement of skills to be of paramount importance. This contrasts with the current situation in that only 47% of employers offer sufficient training.
