Listening to You: counselling centre for employees

With a view to get closer to people and improve the quality of daily and professional life, YOOX Group recently launched “Listening To You”, a service centre run by a team of certified psychologists and counsellors outside the company who, via phone, help people to face any difficult or stressful situations at work.

The Service can be accessed through a toll-free number to an office in Milan, and is available even during lunch hours. A telephone counselling professional conducts an initial evaluation of the request and makes a phone appointment with the psychologist. The professional then reviews the problem extensively and determines how to intervene in response to it.

 

The counselling centre for employees

The project, currently in its pilot phase, is a way to listen to and understand employee demands in the work environment, and allows any areas of dissatisfaction to be monitored. Overall, the requests received are analysed in order to develop action plans for the improvement of the internal climate and organisational well-being at YOOX.

 

Mobile, inside and out: YOOXCITY, YOOX’s mobile workplace project

YOOXCity

YOOX Group began 2015 with all its news about mobile technologies. The start of its achievement, which was during the holiday period, was exceeding the objective of receiving 50% of global traffic from smartphones and tablets, earlier than expected.

In confirmation of the importance of mobile commerce, YOOX chose to broaden its aims in mobile channels internally, as a mean for daily activities for all employees, with the launch of YOOXCITY, an actual project of mobile workplace, designed and developed specifically as a real everyday instrument, coming into existence for the benefit of all employees.

YOOXCITY represents another step forward along the path towards smart working, something that is already in the process of being undertaken by the Group alongside the launch of other initiatives such as working from home. By collaborating with Vodafone Italia, YOOX has provided all of its employees with next-generation smartphones, not only granting free internet and calls, all the benefits offered by the corporate mobile services. YOOXCITY is a true mobile city, which is housed on its up-to-the-minute corporate smartphones, and guarantees maximum connectivity, flexibility and efficiency for all employees wherever they are; it’s like having YOOX in your pocket.   

YOOXCITY, the innovative solution dedicated YOOX Group’s employees

With YOOXCITY it is possible to access the internal messaging system, participate in videoconferences anywhere, or manage individual corporate travel plans. Moreover, employees can also always stay up to date, in real time, about corporate news and have independent and “on-the-go” access to numerous corporate services.

Precisely because it has believed in and invested in mobile channels since 2006, by creating an initial internal taskforce dedicated to this field, YOOX is currently considered to be among the pioneers of mobile commerce. Firstly, with the launch of the yoox.com iPhone app in 2009, and then with its iPad app, which was introduced in conjunction with the device’s official launch in the United States in 2010.

Thanks to investments in technological innovation, the mobile channel has grown considerably in recent years and, sooner than expected, has exceeded the 50% goal for smartphone and tablet visits to the YOOX Group’s websites. The latest results recorded for the new native app for the online lifestyle store yoox.com also contributed to achieving this target. This app is available in 11 languages and can be downloaded free of charge from App Store and Google Play.
