Company Welfare: organisational flexibility with new working hours

At a time of economic turmoil like the current one, in which the need to save energy is very clear too, Pontex has chosen the path of organisational flexibility, with a view to the work life balance

At a time of economic turmoil like the current one, in which companies also have the necessity to optimise energy costs, Pontex has chosen the path of organisational flexibility: company offices and registered office, starting from Monday the 21st November 2022, are open from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with continued schedule.

A decision that was inspired by the will of the company top management, with a view to the work life balance, that is now one of the main factors sought-after by Italian workers when they choose a company (according to what emerges from the results of the Randstad Employer Brand Research 2022), and to increase the wellness of its employees and collaborators, with particular attention to the needs of female workers for whom conciliation between working and family life represents a priority aspect.

And last but not the least, in a year like this, this choice is supported by the need to optimise energy costs and to follow the road of sustainability turning “the lights on” only when it is absolutely necessary.

“In such a complex historical moment, also worsen by an increased cost of energy and by the Russia/Ukraine crisis – Letizia Ferretti, CEO Pontex underlines -, we believe it is necessary to take actions to support our collaborators, in order to increase their wellness. For sure, time is an important benefit, maybe the most precious resource that we have at our disposal in this period and pandemics has taught it to all of us. In times of energy crisis, we also want to work on the culture of economy and costs optimisation: rescheduling the working hours can be a solution.”

Code words: company wellness and energy saving for our company that this year has chosen to celebrate a great milestone, its first 50 years, together with its employees.

Viscose and elastomer velvets, tactile fabrics customisable in their colour and aspect too   The activity of Pontex Research & Development has created viscose velvets and elastomer velvets, completely customisable in every aspect   Velvet is a must-have element in all the collections of fabrics for clothing by Pontex: it is due do its exceptional wearability and to its aspect that is elegant and casual at the same time, depending on the effect that we want to trigger and communicate. In fact, velvet expresses itself through its two different versions: the smooth, elegant and refined one, and the corduroy, more casual and vintage. The contrasts between shiny and matt, the irregular and crushed effects proposed in the Pontex Collection make it a living, soft and fluid fabric, to be explored through enveloping clothes like blazers, corduroy shirts and  high-quality, contemporary and sophisticated trousers. Velvet is unique and charismatic, due to its soft and fluffy texture: touching it, you immediately feel the sensation of its body in your hands and the unique way it reflects light and absorbs the colour. Sumptuous and regal thanks to the deepness of its vivid colour that changes depending on light, velvet has been able over the time to adapt itself to a more daily use too, thanks to the different processing techniques that characterise it with different aspects: from corduroy to froissé (creased aspect), from velveton (Moleskine) to jacquard (that has its design woven into the weft) Quality and utmost customisation  The R&S team of Pontex constantly designs new types of velvet for clothing, that undergo continuous and thorough quality tests. All the velvets for clothing by Pontex are top quality, authentic, versatile fabrics, customisable in their aspect and colour depending on the Customer’s needs. In order to obtain greater durability, elasticity and wearability, the range of velvets by Pontex includes viscose velvets and elastomer velvets too.
