Eni has always been a company that cares. We constantly aim to look after our people, the territories and communities we work in, and the partners we work with so that we create a sense of shared values.
Eni offers a broad range of initiatives and services to support the personal and professional lives of our colleagues.
Caring is a crucial concept in Eni’s strategic vision. Focusing on people is a core value; part of our DNA. This is the reason why Eni has invested in welfare initiatives over the years and in important areas for our people including family, health and well-being.
Supporting the family is a fundamental element in Eni’s welfare programme. Here are some initiatives we provide to help people with their work/life balance:
Eni 0-6 Nursery School
Eni 0-6 is the company’s pre-school nursery that was set up in 2010. It offers a model experience based on a world-class educational approach that provides maximum flexibility (12 months a year, Monday to Friday with extended opening times). Eni 0-6 is currently available in San Donato Milanese, but we are looking at ways of extending this to other locations.
Summer trips for the children of Eni employees (from 6 to 14 years old) are rooted in Eni’s history. They take place at various seaside and mountain locations across Italy under the supervision of qualified teachers and feature many diverse recreational activities, sports and educational workshops.
Our summer camp for 15 and 16 year olds is like an extended study tour with a tailored English language programme. It’s a chance to mix culture, nature and learning!
Support for care givers
Fragibility was made available in 2017: This initiative is dedicated to caregivers, the people who every day - in addition to their work - take care of disabled or non self-sufficient family members. It is a service built around the Italian network and integrated with qualified operators. It is configured as a point of contact providing information and orientation about disability and non self-sufficiency issues.
The health of our people and their families is a fundamental value for Eni. In this context, Eni promotes specific prevention campaigns in qualified structures located throughout the country, such as:
Eni invests in the quality of professional life and the promotion of models and styles of life to encourage people's well-being every day. This, for example, is behind the considerable attention dedicated to company catering services (choice of ingredients, menus in keeping with nutritional indications, care for environments) and the Well-Being Programme offering discounted access to various sports facilities.
All the more, in 2017, our efforts on behalf of the health of our staff continued through:
The regulatory and management system for such activities backs up Eni's commitment in the following 5 areas:
- Occupational Healt and Industrial Hygiene
- Healthcare and traveller health
- Management of medical emergencies
- Health promotion
- Health for the communities
The Well-being Programme also includes initiatives that help to bring people and the company closer together (such as the “Snow Trophy”, a winter event which mixes winter sports, nature and social events, and “Eninsieme”, a day where our children are encouraged to come into work with us).
As of 2017, Eni offered employees the opportunity to access the tax and social security opportunities envisaged in current legislation as regards flexible benefits, thereby allowing the conversion of part of the participation premium into welfare credit Employees are given the chance to define - according to their own specific needs - an individual set of goods and services (social security and health funds, welfare services, educational and training services, recreational, social assistance, consumer goods and facilities) made available through a dedicated web platform that also allows access to a broad offering of convention agreements with partner companies involving major brands in the main commercial areas.
Starting in 2017, some of our people began experimenting with smart working - a tool designed to promote better reconciliation between professional and private sphere requirements and save time in terms of travel, thereby also ensuring a benefit even in terms of impact on the environment.
MAAM - Maternity as a Master
Eni takes part in the MAAM - Maternity as a Master, a project for new or expecting mothers. It is the first programme in the world that sees the maternity period as an opportunity to learn a wide range of professional skills, such as listening, time management and resilience. The programme has a major international reputation and is available in every country we operate in.
