The second edition of the Top Employers Italia 2010 event took place on March 22, 2010, during which Italy’s 25 top companies certified as excellent in the management of Human Resources were presented and awarded.

Telecom Italia is one of these companies.

Thus Telecom Italia for the second year in a row is part of a prestigious group of top companies that set a significant example for Italian businesses and that can proudly display the Top Employers badge of quality and excellence.

The 25 companies that were presented and awarded received their certification from the CRF Institute, an international organization that has analyzed and certified over 2,500 companies worldwide since 1991 and publishes an annual report in each of the countries  (12 nations in 3 continents) in which it operates.

The assessment is made through the strict standards contemplated by the Top Employers HR Best Practices Survey, which thoroughly examine human resource policies according to criteria of training and development, career opportunities, working conditions, remuneration and benefits and company culture, adopting an exclusive methodology that is the result of long-term experience on an international scale.

Among the 25 companies certified as Top Employers for 2010, Telecom Italia stands out.  

The Group received excellent scores in all five areas

  • Training and development 7.5
  • Career opportunities 8
  • Working conditions 7.5
  • Remuneration and benefits 8
  • Company culture 8

These companies not only answered the CRF survey’s extensive questionnaire with accuracy and transparency, but also opened their doors to visits from the CRF team’s financial reporters, who were able to visit every part of their facilities, from offices to warehouses, to canteens and productive spaces, and were able to spend entire days there, experiencing company life “from the inside” under all aspects. The reporters (specialized in economics and management, and who contribute to the most prestigious financial newspapers and periodicals in Italy) had the chance to speak and interact with senior and middle management and young talent; they probed the morale of employees and were free to wander about and to speak with anyone, experiencing a day in the life of company employees and exploring every corner of company premises, including restrooms and indoor gyms.

Such openness is an unquestionable sign of transparency and honesty, experienced as a key value of company culture; it is even more praiseworthy considering today’s challenging economic context, which often forces companies to downsize its workforce.
