Easy was launched in July 2020 as a flexible and customisable intranet, integrating the many applications used in the company while remaining simple to use.

Corporate welfare is the set of operations - both as monetary support and services - which increases the level of social protection and the purchasing power of employees and can indirectly generate a good working environment.
The company's welfare system was created over time with the goal of accommodating the emerging needs and requirements of the corporate population.
Since 2018, the Welfare Plan has been developed on a digital platform called "Snammy" around five areas of intervention: Family, Education, Work/Life Balance, Well-being and leisure time, Health. The platform was equipped with a welfare assistant, activated as a single point of contact and mediator between personal needs and corporate welfare responses. Besides the welfare system was strengthened and enriched with services to respond and help employees cope with the issues arising from the pandemic.

The paternity leave

Snam fully recognizes the importance of the father figure and the active participation of the latter in family life, as well as the need to better balance the division of the work of caring for boys and girls and the disproportionate incidence in the workplace deriving from the birth of a son.
For this reason, following the changes introduced by the 2021 Budget Law, Snam has decided to offer its employees 5 additional days of 100% paid paternity leave, in addition to the 10 required by law, to be used in the first 5 months in the event of birth, fostering, adoption and perinatal death.
This initiative will also support mothers, since currently the birth of a child has an impact on their career almost solely for them. Following the extension, an employee awareness campaign was launched.

As part of the "Care work and parenting" work table, Snam, together with Valore D and 24 other companies, has drawn up an informative paper on the issues of care work and parenting, also committing itself to work on 6 specific actions:

  1. Promote measures to support all employees in managing care work and promote awareness and training initiatives related to care work and its fair distribution
  2. Define company policies that favor forms of work flexibility, understood as remote work and flexibility of schedules
  3. Promote, through the initiatives deemed most appropriate, a culture of parenting equally shared between parents
  4. Encourage fathers to take full advantage of the period of paternity leave provided for by law and all other leave and leave provided (parental leave, due to illness of the child, daily rest so-called for breastfeeding) through specific initiatives
  5. Promote, within the limits of their business constraints, the extension of the paternity leave period beyond the days required by law, and encourage its use
  6. Promote the use of optional parental leave on an equal basis by both parents, through the methods deemed most appropriate


Snam, through the initiatives undertaken, responds to these commitments.

Corporate intranet

Snam's new intranet, co-designed with a group of 80 employee users, today confirms itself as an essential tool to ensure communication and encourage engagement, representing a virtual space available to all of Snam’s people and which can respond promptly to everyone's needs. Only one year after its birth, Easy has grown again, increasing the amount of content published by 14% and the number of views compared to 2020 by more than 24%.

Easy is the only Italian intranet to have received, in 2021, an award from the American digital consultancy company Nielsen Norman Group, after winning the Intranet Italia Champions 2020 last year.

The award was assigned as part of the "Intranet Design Annual", which prized the ten best internal platforms at global level for their ability to facilitate remote working, support internal communication flows and simplify access to company services available to employees.

Working flexibility and smart working

Snam offers its people a system of working flexibility, which includes flexible working hours in and out, the "short Friday" (the possibility of ending the working day starting at 13) and smart working. In relation to the latter, a new agreement was signed in March 2021 which defines that smart working will be usable up to a maximum of 3 days a week for all staff colleagues and, for the first time, also for all colleagues in the operations area whose activities allow it (+ 50% of total operations people), from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 2 days a week.
