The 2018 Assochange Prize has been awarded to the MONDADORI GROUP. Now in its seventh edition, the award was presented during the meting for the presentation of the 5th Observatory of Change Management in Italy, held in Milan, at the Politecnico di Milano, partner of the project.
“It is enormously satisfying for us to present the Assochange Prize to the Mondadori Group,” commented Salvatore Merando, president of the Association, “given that it is a company that in a highly competitive and continuously evolving scenario, has been able to launch significant and parallel programmes for change with an impact across the entire company and its staff. In this context, change management activities have taken on a fundamental and strategic importance, in particular given the central role of people in accelerating the achievement of the stated objectives, the strong and visible leadership of the management and the development of capabilities, competences and roles able to sustain the changes underway.”
“We are very proud to be awarded the 2018 Assochange Prize,” declared Daniele Sacco, the Mondadori Group’s head of human resources and organisation. “This award encourages us to continue our efforts with even more conviction to pursue the path of innovation that the Mondadori Group has adopted in recent years.”
“Our goal is the development of a widespread culture that is increasingly able to see change as an opportunity and in which our people have a central, active and conscious role. In fact, for us, change is first and foremost an investment in people and their motivation. And to be successful, this needs to unleash positive energy, enthusiasm and engagement at all levels,” concluded Sacco.
