Employee benefits and company Welfare


The governance of Welfare SEA was implemented in 2012 through an innovative model which integrates the various components involved in the provision of services to Group personnel. In addition to the presence of SEA and the Cassa Assistenza Integrativa (Health Fund), in April a new bilateral governance body was introduced with the merger of the two Employee Recreational Centres of Linate and Malpensa and the creation of the Noisea Association, a body which manages the recreational and instructional activities.

In relation to SEA, new initiatives were introduced:

  • The Seniors Help Desk, which through a web platform and telephone channel, provides useful support and information for those encountering problems and emergencies related to the assistance of seniors, persons with chronic illnesses and the disabled; 
  • a listening and assistance service carried out by qualified social workers for the management of serious family, psychological and financial problems.

Access to the “SEA for you” welfare services

In the 2010-2012 three-year period, despite the overall reduction in the workforce, the number of persons benefitting from Welfare initiatives increased.

The following table summarises the access to company welfare services by employees (full-time and part-time) over the last three years.

Parental leave

The data relating to the right and usage of voluntary leave is also based on the right, established by SEA welfare, for all mothers to benefit from a reduction of working hours to 5 hours a day until their children reach five years of age and the drawing up of a work schedule which ensures, even after a first appraisal, a correct balance between work and home life.
