People and values

We have always believed that people are our most important asset. Diversity, individual ability and continuous training are central to our values.

Continuous training in a fast-moving world

Our story is told through the skills that drive our growth. The need for a continual learning approach is increasingly clear in this age of rapid change, which calls for the constant acquisition of new skills to meet the challenges posed by sustainability and the circular economy

As the world around us changes, we change with it, taking advantage of the significant growth and business opportunities that arise along the way. Now more than ever, we are committed to involving our employees and collaborators in our organisational strategies. This is why we offer our people training courses through the Eni Corporate University, giving them the awareness and knowledge to continue to deliver on our mission, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. 

We adopt innovative tools to assess our people’s skills and professional growth, enhancing them through experiences abroad, or by building development paths that help both individuals and the company to grow.

Human Focus: our people. Our energy in evolution

Eni’s energy is possible thanks to our people’s skills: an evolving energy that we nurture through Human Focus.

This tool allows us to:

  • interpret and identify our behaviours and skills, linked to our own specific roles, and
  • consolidate our strengths and work on areas for improvement.

Human Focus applies to all people management, evaluation, feedback, training and development processes.

It relies on the premise that each person is central to the role they play as an accelerator of change at Eni: awareness and responsibility for our actions and skills are fundamental to our development, and that of the company.

Human Focus is structured into four clusters:

  • Thought
  • Action
  • Relationship
  • Person

Each of these skill clusters comprises behavioural indicators related to soft skills, which guide and support dialogue between managers and employees regarding results achieved, behaviours implemented and future priorities.

Human Focus

Thought Action
Evaluating the complexity of problems and situations, discerning priorities and finding effective solutions, also by embracing and developing new and different ideas. Proactively achieving results by effectively managing even undefined situations. Taking responsibility for achieving targets. Pushing for change, streamlining processes and implementing new approaches.
Relationship Person
Effective dialogue with others to achieve targets. Valuing individual differences, inspiring others through diffused leadership. Being aware of one’s self and skills, assuming responsibilities and coping with difficult situations. Bringing passion to work, credibly and consistently.

Why join our team

Our work is based on passion and innovation. On the strength and development of our skills. This is why we have introduced several development initiatives exclusively for our people, as well as providing access to a cutting-edge welfare and benefit system.

Corporate volunteering

In 2019 Eni began a corporate volunteering project with Fondazione Banco Alimentare. Employees who signed up to the initiative were followed internally by a multi-disciplinary work group. They got the chance to volunteer for a day at Fondazione Banco Alimentare's warehouses, near their workplaces in different Italy cities. In this project, Eni's goal is to encourage active and voluntary participation in the life of local communities by its employees, during working hours. This project is right in line with Eni's way of doing business, as defined in its new mission, which is concerned with respect for people and creating shared value. The corporate volunteering project is set to go on in 2020, also with other various potential forms of outreach volunteering. Through this kind of volunteering, Eni aims to encourage and support active and voluntary participation in the life of local communities by its employees, even during working hours, working with many local non-profit organisations to meet the needs of different local areas.
