The greatest unexpected benefit:

One of the biggest successes of Max Mara Fashion Group’s MMFG People App has been the ability to connect and engage their entire workforce during the pandemic. In March 2020, when the Covid-19 began shutting down headquarters and retail stores, the HRM Department was able to respond efficiently and effectively to provide daily information, protocols, and dedicated e-learning courses to their employees.

The aim is to stay connected to our employees in this delicate period by not only communicating government and company regulations, but to also engage with them about cultural initiatives such as virtual events, home fitness, food challenges, etc. What we are most proud of is that our team acknowledges that the most important aim of our app is to stay connected to our employees.”
