Attraction and development of talent

100 Young Engineers – Tomorrow’s Builders

As part of the “Courage at Work” campaign, launched in 2014, the project for the selection and hiring of 100 Young Engineers was implemented and completed, between December 2014 and February 2015, with the aim of recruiting 100 of the best students and new graduates primarily from Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Environmental Science, Building-Architecture and Management Faculties.

A training program called “BUILD UP” was also designed and is currently being developed for the 100 new recruits, which involves interfunctional rotation within the construction sites as a first training step, aimed at accelerating learning for the trainees with a view to assigning them a specific role.

The BUILD UP development model, designed for the “100 Giovani Ingegneri – Tomorrow’s Builders” consists of structured on-the-job on-site training programs and development initiatives, aimed at enabling trainees to acquire the necessary skills to hold key roles within the organization in the future.

Tutoring Project

The “Courage at Work” campaign also includes a multi-year tutoring project for talented university students in Italy and abroad, to be carried out through professional guidance and in-house training activities.

To this end, an employer branding strategy has been devised and developed, which was deployed extensively in the main Italian Universities, in the first half of 2015, and will be extended to international level in the second half of the year.

Indeed, by establishing strategic agreements with leading Italian and international universities, Salini Impregilo aims at identifying and recruiting the most talented individuals in the local and international job markets and at facilitating their professional growth and development through the implementation of training and tutoring programs for the top performers.

Master in Project Management in the Major International Construction Sites”

During the first half of 2015 the classroom teaching phase was implemented for the Master in “Project Management” in the Major International Construction Sites sponsored by the Group and conducted in the Pesenti School of the Politecnico di Milano. The lessons were, in the majority of cases, given by a Faculty of Salini Impregilo lecturers, who provided their experience and their technical know-how, in order to train 32 students. The Master course is a reflection of the Company's strong focus on training programs and professional guidance and the classroom sessions covered the main aspects of project management.
