Prologis named among “Logistico dell’Anno 2020” award winners
Prologis’ commitment to corporate social responsibility recognised at logistics industry awards in Italy.
Prologis has received the “Il Logistico dell’Anno 2020” award for innovation in corporate social responsibility for its Community Workforce Initiative and community support during the Covid-19 crisis.
The stated objective of the Prologis Community Workforce Initiative is to provide training for 25,000 unemployed people by the end of 2025, equipping them with the skills needed to work in the fast-growing transportation, distribution and logistics sectors. In partnership with JFF, a US non-profit organisation that drives transformation in workforce and education systems, Prologis has designed a training and digital development programme to build the skills needed for a career in logistics. The online programme addresses basic skills, lean principles and logistics-specific training in areas such as workplace safety and forklift operation. The courses incorporate the latest technologies, including virtual reality tools, and can be accessed at the student’s convenience using a computer or mobile device.
Organised by Assologistica (Italian association of logistics operators) and its training arm Assologistica Cultura e Formazione, alongside industry journal Euromerci, for 16 years the “Il Logistico dell’Anno” awards have been presented to the logistics and supply chain operators that have made best use of innovation over the year, in areas such as R&D, training, sustainability, multimodal networks, IT, logistics real estate or HR.
