Automobili Lamborghini has once again been confirmed as an increasingly attractive employer. For the fifth year in a row, the company was awarded the prestigious “Top Employer Italy 2018” certification, an honour bestowed annually by the Top Employers Institute on companies with excellent workplace environments and advanced policies for human resource management.

This award is added to other recent company achievements: in 2017 Lamborghini enjoyed record sales, with 3,815 vehicles delivered worldwide (+10 per cent); historic records set in all three macro-regions (America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific); and sales numbers almost tripling from 2010 to the present. 2017 also saw development of the production site, which was doubled in size in 12 months from 80,000 to 160,000 square meters for the Urus project, Lamborghini’s new Super SUV.  Lamborghini has also reached record workforce numbers: 500 employees have been hired on permanent contracts since the start of the Urus project, of which over 200 were appointed last year. The new hires brought the total number of employees to 1600 at the close of 2017. Joining these are further staff in the new paint department, which will be operational at the Sant’Agata Bolognese site by the end of this year.

Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, commented: “Our history of success, now recognized for the fifth consecutive year by the Top Employers Institute, confirms that extraordinary results are obtained thanks to extraordinary people. Our goal is to put people at the center of everything we do. Investing in people and their well-being in the work environment is crucially important for us, in order to aspire to increasingly challenging goals.”
