On this occasion, Technowrapp has been represented by the three partners: Davide Ceccarelli (Chief Executive Officer), Renzo Lira (Sales engineer manager) and Fabrizio Rocchi (Sales manager).
“Elite is an excellent opportunity of growth for Technowrapp and for all the companies selected for this programme” Rocchi explains “It is an occasion to stimulate the cultural change, the identification of the strategic goals and of the changes that are necessary to achieve them. This is all thanks to the comparison with the management of other important companies which, like us, join the programme”.
Renzo Lira, instead, focuses the attention on the growth which is characterising Technowrapp and on what this growth implies for the company’s employees. “The historical moment that we are experiencing is extremely delicate and particular. Our strength has always been in the value of the people who work in this company, in the passion and competence they put in their job and in this company and in their ability to work as a team. A period of growth like the one which Technowrapp is experiencing can put all these aspects under strain and that’s why, over the last few years, we have invested a lot on many different initiatives”. The projects the company is carrying out, work on several fronts: from the digitalization process in the 4.0 era, to an assessment route of the potential to develop training plans for the managers in charge of the various departments, to a team building programme, called “Technowrapp People”, in which every employee participates every month. “We really care about the meetings of Technowrapp People project” Ceccarelli says. “Over the last few years we have considerably increased the staff and is really important to create a moment of meeting where employees can know each other, learn and grow together. We relied on an expert coach, who helps us every month to improve the relationships between us and to maintain the positive atmosphere which is present in the company. This permits also to the newcomers to enjoy this atmosphere and to integrate with the company spirit in the best way possible. From now also the Elite programme can provide us with new tools to organize our growth”.
