For the second year in a row, Prologis has been recognised at the “Il Logistico dell’Anno” awards. This year’s award is for innovation in workplace well-being and the PARKlife™ philosophy, which has been implemented for the first time in Italy in a pilot project at Prologis Park Lodi, in partnership with CEVA Logistics. The award was collected in Milan this morning by Claudia Montanari, the Prologis Real Estate and Customer Experience Lead Director, and Margaryta Hnatenko, Real Estate and Customer Experience Coordinator at Prologis, at a ceremony organised Assologistica at Assolombarda's Squinzi Auditorium.
The PARKlife™ philosophy focuses on the well-being of the people who work at Prologis logistics parks. The pilot project at Prologis Park Lodi included the installation of a striking open air urban art gallery, as well as the introduction of new services, such as picnic areas and refreshment facilities, washrooms and showers for lorry drivers, shaded areas and table tennis tables. The new facilities also provide plenty of opportunities for socialising.
The “Il Logistico dell’Anno” awards were launched 17 years ago by Assologistica (national association of logistics operators), and were created by its Culture and Training Division and trade journal Euromerci. The recipients can be managers or firms, which are recognised for their achievements in innovation across a range of fields (ICT, sustainability, training, multimodal transport, research and development, CSR, logistics real estate, HR, workplace well-being, etc.) during the year.
Last year, Prologis received a “Il Logistico dell’Anno 2020” award for its community support in designing a training and digital development programme aimed at building the skills needed in today's logistics workforce. Under the Prologis Community Workforce Initiative, 25,000 unemployed people will receive training that will equip them to work in the fast-growing transportation, distribution and logistics sectors by the end of 2025.
