An initiative created to bring new generations closer to the business world and its opportunities, opening the gates of local companies in a program of guided tours.
Due to the current emergency situation, for this edition the visits have been transformed into virtual tours and meetings: an organizational commitment of the Entrepreneurial Associative System aimed at not letting students miss an opportunity to contact companies. The PMI DAY, in fact, for over a decade has been a precious opportunity for young people to have a close comparison with the production realities; the goal is to involve them, showing them the value of the skills and talent that every day lead the entrepreneur and his collaborators to achieve results and develop future projects.
For entrepreneurs, the PMI DAY represents an important moment in which to share with young people the commitment to spreading the business culture: a fundamental opportunity to reduce the distance between the world of school and that of work. This year the children involved will be over 600, coming from all types of high schools and high schools in the Turin area.
" The Turin Industrial Union - despite the current circumstances, which require special precautions and attention - continues to commit itself to developing a future of shared growth" commented the President of Turin industrialists, Giorgio Marsiaj . "It is important that young people develop an ever greater awareness of the vital role of businesses for the well-being of all citizens and of the territory as a whole. PMI DAY is an important step in this direction ".
The President of Piccola Industria, Giovanni Fracasso , underlines: " SMEs represent more than 85% of the companies in the area and it is vital for companies, schools and families that children get to know us better and better. These opportunities are precious moments of orientation for students, who come out of these meetings with a greater awareness of what they will want to do in the future ".
" We are proud to be able to open our farms to students and their teachers - says Tommaso Visca, president of Confagricoltura Turin - to present the activities of agricultural businesses, for a double reason: to make known the passion and daily commitment of those who work. to ensure every day quality food and in adequate quantity to citizens, stimulating, if possible, the interest to undertake a youth activity in the primary sector; also to present companies that occupy an indispensable role for the growth and development of the country and that maintain a strong social responsibility in environmental protection, in the interest of the territory ".
