At a time of great economic criticality, in a land historically in trouble, the company Meic Services S.p.A., performs a gesture in absolute contrast: becomes a Benefit Company!
The new legal form, born in the United States, was introduced in Italy by the 2016 Budget Law (Law 208/2015 art1, paragraphs 376-384). The goal of the standard is to encourage the development of companies that, in addition to the purpose of dividing profits, pursue one or more purposes of common benefit and operate responsibly, sustainable and transparent towards people, communities, territories, environment, sporting, cultural, social activities, bodies and associations and in general towards other stakeholders.
According to the law, the management of the Benefit Companies must be oriented to balance the interests of members, with the interest of those on whom social activity may have an impact. A census carried out at the end of 2018, indicated the so-called Italian B-corp in just over 500 Being a benefit company, it cannot be limited to a mere facade or markerting operation, because the commitment to allocate quotas for the social good is precise and significant penalties are envisaged for those who do not comply with the provisions of the legislative decree of August 2, 2007, n ° 145, on the subject of misleading advertising and the provisions of the consumer code referred to in the legislative decree of September 6, 2005, n ° 206.
Meic Services has made a substantial and voluntary choice, and in addition to becoming a Benefit company, presents the first social report for the year 2018 and 2019 and operates according to the criteria of corporate sustainability.
“For our company"Says the managing director Dr. Maurizio Melfa, "the transformation into a Benefit Company was a natural consequence of a modus operandi, which has always been aimed at the community. Respect for the environment, for the territory, for the rules, for the employees, and respect for the charter of human rights, represent the five pillars on which a sustainable business is founded, which Meic Services prides itself on being. We hope to be an example for the transformation into a Benefit Company of many other wonderful companies in Southern Italy, ready to relaunch the economy at a critical moment like this”.
“The company", Says Eng. Oscar Coci, Marketing and Communication Director and CSR Manager, "è un fiore all’occhiello dell’imprenditoria siciliana e può vantare una qualità di lavoro eccelsa ed un livello di soddisfazione altissimo da parte dei dipendenti, che già nel 2018 e nel 2019 si sono visti arrivare regali di fine anno fino ad un valore di €200.000,00, frutto degli utili aziendali. Inoltre, chiunque abbia fatto richiesta di sostegno per un progetto sociale, culturale, sportivo, di beneficienza o comunque con positiva ricaduta sul territorio, ha avuto ascolto, dedizione e pronta risposta dalla Meic Services”
