My work environment

Our initiatives are:

  • a research project/intervention was carried out on equity and inclusion management, in partnership with the Humanitas Consortium and LUMSA University, which, through territorial interdepartmental improvement groups, aims to launch a phase of planning bottom-up initiatives as motivational leverage.
  • TIM “Equity & Inclusion Week”: organised in many locations and cities from 28 November to 2 December over 50 events organised and self-produced by employees
  • establishment of the “Equity & Inclusion Community”, a community of knowledge sharing dedicated to these issues, with the participation of at least 50 employees;
  • e-learning training course on “Give value to diversity” available to all on the TIM Academy e-learning platform;
  • e-learning training course on “Managing disability” aimed at providing a better understanding of how to relate to a colleague or co-worker with a disability; application of the policy that requires the mandatory adaptation of the fixed or mobile work stations of disabled colleagues; I-Communicate Project - which aims to encourage communication between deaf people and other employees, strengthening their ability to operate entirely independently through evolved technological tools;
  • active collaboration continues with Value D, an association to promote career paths for women: cross-company mentoring project, skill building courses;
  • a series of encounters on “Female LeadHERship” which tell the stories of our women managers.

On sexual orientation and gender identity:

  • our collaboration continues with the PARKS - Liberi e Uguali association of companies;
  • equivalent application of our policies on permissions, leave and the use of benefits and welfare services to LGBTI and heterosexual couples, as well as the extension of the use of services aimed at children and teenagers to the children of the family unit of the employee.

On ageing:

  • launch of “TIM Reverse Mentoring” project which pairs mentors and mentees from different generations.
