The promotion of a comfortable and healthy workplace is always one of the main goals of Markas, that considers the employees its most valuable asset. After repeatedly being in the top positions of the Great Place to Work Italy classification, in 2018 Markas joined a new project that involved the site of Vaprio in Lombardy, Italy. Named “Workplaces that promote health”, it is focused on the wellbeing of the employees.

The program “Workplaces that promote health – WHP Lombardy”, promoted by WHO (World Health Organization) and recognized by the Ministry of Health, aims at encouraging firms to promote and spread healthy lifestyles inside and outside the workplace.
To obtain the certification given by the Health Protection Agency the companies that take part in the program have to commit to the creation of an environment that can stimulate healthy choices and behaviors.
