Economy of Communion XIV: Construction of Economic Democracy

Spirituality of Unity

The case of Loppiano Prima underlines how pillars of communion, instru­ments and aspects are strictly interrelated and how they contribute to develop respect with the construction of economic democracy using the spirituality of Unity inside and outside of an entity. In fact, living aspects of commun­ion without dialogue, trust and reciprocity, can create a simple organizational structure which could overwhelm people. The company proves to be consist­ently socially-oriented in regard to the centrality of human beings and the quality of relationships it develops both internally and externally, along with the environment, as well as the actual re-examination of its operating in light in this direction. To this end, instruments of communion are useful to renew options and make it continuously effective. In fact, it must be kept in mind that communion is not achieved once and for all, but it is necessary to rejuvenate it, improve it and, where necessary rebuild it once more. In this way, the cor­porate mission extends into society, so that entrepreneurs and managers can find a broader sense or logic to their work that is not the exclusive fulfilling of enterprise’s legitimate and dutiful economic purpose.

The firm has both a social mandate and a social vocation

Nowadays it appears that the crucial element on which to focus the atten­tion, that is if the firm wants to achieve a lasting success, is the person and the modality of relationship adopted inside the firm along with the outside. Therefore, it cannot be disregarded that, the adoption of an integrated social orientation can constitute a convenience for the firm, both from an internal and external point of view. From the external perception, it is important to consider not only the product/service the business can offer to the clients and the perspective that the social community has, but also the quality of relation­ships the business is able to build with the stakeholders. On the other hand, with regard to an internal point of view, it is enough to say that, in the present social – economic context, where the resource knowledge is the main aspect upon which to build the competitive advantage, firms need to use all the pos­sible strategies to employ and maintain the best human resources. This way, the firm answers not only to the ever new and pressing social and sustainable demands, but also to that insuppressible social vocation which springs directly from its own nature.

I have learnt the importance of Communion and expounded my understanding of the firm’s purpose

The training was successful and to me it has increased both knowledge and made me learn the importance of communion. And that the feeling of personal comfort is found in social relations, living in common, means that we are one united, the others joy, success, failure is mine and what they go through I go through too.

From this I strongly believe that not so long a lot of companies assumed something quite different about the purpose of business, they said, quite simply that the purpose is to make money but that proved a vacuous  as a saving, that the purpose of life without eating is a requisite not a purpose of life, without eating, life stops, without profit, business stops. Thus profit is a requisite not a purpose of business.
