The importance of internal development
Despite a reduction of the number of local resources employed outside Italy compared with the previous year (561 or -5.1%), the proportion of local staff on the total number of resources abroad, rose, compared with 2015, from 84.5% to 84.7%. The change was due to a reduction in clerical staff and a rise in the number of blue collars. The number of supervisory personnel (i.e. senior managers and managers) remained essentially the same.
In absolute terms, the local resources employed by companies not consolidated with the integral method, rose by 1,676 units, compared with 2015, while the proportion of the total foreign resources remained unchanged.
Eni offers the possibility to develop an international career and the main initiatives in this context in 2015 included:
- the completion of the new HR Evolution system, which guarantees coverage of planning and recruitment processes in a more uniform manner at the global level and in line with the objective of internationalising resources and enhancing Eni’s professionalism around the world (14,137 forms online in 2015 for a total of 12,000 people).
- the ongoing updating and monitoring of international mobility and recruitment policies with a view to being a global company and aimed a increased integration.
- the launch and/or follow up of internationalisation projects such as the Green Project, the High Potential Manager (HPM) Project, Stars and High Potentials and the Integrated Development, Nationalisation and Training Plans Project in West Africa (see the chart Internationalisation).
