The article contributes to the analyses of complementary welfare measures that tend to operate at the company level. The company welfare schemes are found mainly in medium-large businesses and are primarily aimed at the employees who are already covered by the ordinary welfare institutions. They comprise a wide range of complementary services: healthcare, social assistance, work-life balance schemes. Though already present in Italy, these kinds of services have been expanding in the last few years either as a result of unilateral choices on the part of companies or as part of agreements made between companies and unions. The aim of this paper is to address these issues, by considering the EdenRed database, which allowed a detailed examination of these services at territorial level.
