The second edition of the Positive Business Award, a prize established to celebrate people and companies which make out of positiveness the fundamental value of their organisation as well as the productivity engine, Gessi’s management culture has been rewarded for the second year with the prize “Positive Manger” assigned to Eusebio Gualino, Gessi managing director. In the 2014 Gessi had been rewarded the prize of “Positive Company” of the year.
The prize created and organised by the Palo Alto school - the main Italian not academic Business School - has gathered several important companies which demonstrate to pay particular attention to the wellness of people and their involvement, and which are led by “positively visionary managers” who, against pessimism, not only consider everything possible to achieve but are rewarded by the international and national success of their own organisation.
Nowadays, the capacity to compete as well as to survive in the market of companies depends strongly on the possession of a clear vision and on the mastery of atypical competences. These abilities are embedded in the managers and retransmitted by them to the human resources on the basis of a winning company philosophy: concreteness and ability to imagine and take risks with projects, balance between creativity and conception of the market.
With its managerial philosophy founded on the safeguard of the territory, on sharing the aims, on the joy of living and on positivity, Gessi keeps on representing a case history of huge interest for its ability to match innovation, technology, creativity, style and ethics.
The success of Gessi as “oasis-company” which transformed an old quarry into a green industrial park, and the international approval of its “experiential” products which are realized by an environmentally-friendly way of production, is the result of Gessi’s aim of donating wellness and improving people’s lives. This way Gessi confirms his role of “positive” business model in his field.
