To support the achievement of the corporate objectives and to aid organizational development and change management, in the first half of 2015 Salini Impregilo continued to invest in technical and managerial skills training and development.

With regard to change management, major team building and business coaching and mentoring initiatives have been developed and launched.

In particular, a Team Coaching programme is being carried out, dedicated to specific organisational functions, in order to promote new work models aimed at reaching specific organisational objectives.

Other major mentoring and business coaching projects have been developed and recently launched, which are aimed at a community of company managers, from various areas, who hold key organizational positions.

In terms of managerial training, a “Train the trainers” program has been developed for 25 company senior managers and managers who have taught on the “Master in Project Management” sponsored by the Group. The training workshops were aimed at providing support for educational methods, teaching style and preparation of training material. They also contributed to creating the initial nucleus of Salini Impregilo's internal Faculty, which will enable the organization and transmission of a significant component of the corporate know-how.

These programmes are specifically dedicated to providing the knowledge and skills required to operate in line and in compliance with regulatory provisions, and to transfer knowledge of the company’s organizational and operational system and the business environment that the Group operates in.

With regard to language training, the program is currently underway, which involves around 80 people and uses different teaching methods according to the specific needs of the participants: individual, semi-individual and group courses, all using a blended approach. The blended approach involves a mix of classroom and online training, to provide a more effective educational process.
