The Ticino Cantonal Association of Commercial Employees awarded Chocolat Stella Bernrain the 'Prix Egalité' in 2011. This award served to highlight the company's commitment to equal employment opportunities and conditions for men and women.
"Agiamo insieme" award
In 2012, the canton of Ticino and the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Handicraft and Services of Canton Ticino conferred the "Agiamo insieme" award for the first time for exceptional efforts to integrate disabled employees into the work process. Chocolat Stella Bernrain was honoured to be able to receive this award for the opportunity the company had given to a long-standing machine operator who, after suffering a serious accident, became paraplegic and was no longer able to carry out his work. The employee now works on a 30 percent part-time basis in the administration department. Chocolat Stella Bernrain arranged for the internal retraining and installed a lift specifically for this employee. We were honoured to receive the "Agiamo insieme" award for this.
