Valuing people


Snam respects the dignity of everyone and offers equal opportunity in all phases and all aspects of employment, not partaking in any form of discrimination that may derive from differences in sex, age, state of health, nationality or political or religious opinions, for this reason, in October 2019 the Policy Diversity & Inclusion was adopted


Training, besides fulfilling its traditional role of developing skills and competencies, is also used as a tool to support organisational integration and change management processes


Snam, in line with the goal of sustainable development "Decent work and economic growth" (SDG 8), offers a stable and constant employment relationship, mainly in Italy, with qualified and specialist activities.

93% of personnel are on a permanent employment contract.

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, with the diffusion of its Code of Ethics and with the adoption of the Diversity & Inclusion Policy.

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.
