Valuing people

A total of 94% of Snam personnel have permanent employment contracts

It is becoming increasingly difficult to grow a business in the European gas market because it requires diverse skills, teamwork and an ever greater capacity to innovate. This means improvements to human capital are crucial in continuing to create value.
Snam has always benefited from high levels of technical and managerial ability, know-how,innovation and vision. Every year, the Company works hard to strengthen its systems and policies for shaping leadership and employee performance, giving staff all the tools they need to be agents of change. In fact Snam considers the development, training, communication and well-being of employees to be core values.

These values derive from Human Rights respect in a broader sense. Values applied in Snam's personnel policies and promoted with Snam's adhesion to Global Compact and with the diffusion of its Code of Ethics.

These values bring together different companies into a single group and help to build new and efficient management and communication systems, making fundamental changes to the organisation and the role of each person, while also enhancing their individual skills.
