Human resources

Members make an effective contribution to management of the cooperative, attending meetings, electing a board of directors and contributing to strategic development strategies. This makes our members the essential foundation on which La Città Verde is built and grows.
In view of the importance of the figure of member, and keeping in mind the contribution every individual can make, the principle inspiring the cooperative is that of free, voluntary participation: cooperatives are voluntary organisations, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination (from the Charter of
Values and Principles approved at the Congress of the Centennial of the International Cooperative Alliance, Manchester, 1995). La Città Verde implements this principle, making the choice to join an entirely free one and allowing anyone who wishes to do so to become a member of the cooperative by purchasing a share for only 25 euros.

Human capital is the hinge on which La Città Verde’s everyday activities and prospects for development revolve. Following an initial temporary contract with an average duration of one year, the employment relationship is made permanent to provide workers with motivation and a sense of belonging to
the cooperative. Seasonal contracts are used exclusively in the gardening sector, at peak times in
spring and autumn.
