Our Christmas wishes

Also this year we wanted to express our Christmas wishes by sharing with customers, suppliers and collaborators a story that stimulates us to give our best, making us reflect on the year that has been and on the new year that will soon arrive.


L'ELEFANTE INCATENATO


When I was little I loved the circus.

I felt a particular attraction to the elephant, a favourite animal for me and many other children.


During the show, the elephant displayed a truly extraordinary weight, size and strength, but after his performance, and until a moment before he came on stage, he was always bound by a chain around one of his legs to a pallet driven into the floor. But the pallet was just a tiny piece of wood planted a few centimetres in the ground, and although the chain was thick, it seemed obvious to me that an animal like that should be able to free himself easily and run away.

What kept him there?

As the years passed, I forgot the mystery of the elephant and the pallet.

And a few years ago I found out the answer: the circus elephant doesn’t escape because he’s been chained to a pallet like that since he was small.

Closing my eyes, I can imagine the defenceless baby elephant chained to the pallet, pushing and pulling as he tries to free himself, but all his efforts are in vain because the pallet is too firmly fixed. So after many attempts, one day he gives up, resigning himself to impotence.

The massive, powerful elephant we see in the circus doesn’t rip the chain off because he doesn’t believe he can: he’s imprinted with the memory of his helplessness as a baby and he’s never tried to get away again, never tested his strength. Never again!


We’re strong, we’re able and we’re well-prepared, but sometimes we behave like the elephant: past failure leads us to give up. We don’t bother even trying. We lose confidence in ourselves. There’s only one way to know if we can do something: we have to find the strength to try again.


BEST WISHES FOR A WONDERFUL LIFE TO ALL

A productivity bonus for Iceberg employees

Iceberg has always placed particular attention upon the wellbeing of its collaborators. This is confirmed by the fact that Iceberg is the first company in the service industry that works out of the Province of Treviso to have introduced a productivity bonus for its employees: a supplementary contract written up with representatives of the Unascom Confederation of Enterprises, Professions and Self-Employment and the Filcams Cgil, Fisacat Cisl and Uiltucs Uil Labour Unions. 

Iceberg has been a trailblazer in the case of stipulating new protocol in the Province of Treviso, based on the possibilities the Law of Stability has to offer. Employees are encouraged to reach company objectives in order to receive a tax-free bonus while the company will benefit from tax breaks since bonus money is deductable.

An intelligent incentive that other companies in the sector are quickly emulating, making their contribution to the area’s economic revival as well.

The 37th annual Iceberg Company Meeting has terminated successfully

The 37th annual Iceberg Company Meeting has terminated successfully

An exciting evening was organised on Saturday 7 May 2016 for over 150 collaborators with the company.

The 37th annual Iceberg-Gelpiave-Fresco&Vario Group Meeting was hosted at the splendid Park Hotel Villa Fiorita at Monastier di Treviso.

The evening opened with the traditional meeting held at the Villa Fiorita Convention Centre which featured the screening of a presentation of the company’s results for 2015 and its goals for 2016.

After that, an award ceremony for collaborators who have been working with the company anywhere from 5 to 30 years – 5 employees from Gelpiave and 27 from Iceberg. They were awarded the “Golden Starfish” for their outstanding professional commitment.

A special mention goes to the extraordinary accomplishments of Roberto Valeron, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Gelpiave, who celebrated 25 years of collaboration, and Iceberg courier Enrico Donadel who has been with the company for 30 years.

Our deepest gratitude goes to them and to all the other award winners.

After the meeting, the guests were accompanied to the pool area of the hotel where cocktails and dinner were served in the brand new dining room.

There was no lack of entertainment thanks to the humour and music provided by “Sorrisi Verticali”, a delightful and talented group of musicians.

And a memorable performance by Lux Arcana!

After dinner, the Tuscan artists-jugglers offered an exciting show with LED lighting, bright rings, burning swords and sparks that took the audience’s breath away.

The evening was crowned by cutting the celebratory cake and a final toast for the company’s 37th anniversary.
