Abstract

The latest economic trend made necessary reconsideration of welfare as a place where public authorities and private companies collaborate to satisfy social needs, that are growing in quantities and varieties. Enterprises have a pivotal role in this new welfare system, the so-called “Second Welfare”, by adopting for their employees a win-win model that combines their corporate social responsibility with the welfare society. By corporate welfare, indeed, the Government can meet the citizens’ needs more efficiently and effectively, people increase their well-being and companies can improve performances and productivity. Firstly, those practices seemed a privilege for bigger companies but recently, also workers of smaller companies have been included. At this aim it is presented a case of a welfare platform created by a non-profit Italian organization; while providing a simple, local and flexible service, it enables access to healthcare facilities and prevention centres, services and cultural activities networked, and creates a business welfare plan. The role of ICT is fundamental in order to coordinate the supply of corporate welfare services and include small and medium enterprises, allowing them to catch opportunities that otherwise would be a prerogative of big ones.
