We respect the dignity of each person and we offer equal opportunities to all our employees, avoiding any form of discrimination arising from differences in gender, age, health, nationality, political opinions or religious beliefs. We recognize that diversity, at all levels, is a value to be cultivated in our organization in order to consolidate our aim to "put people at the core" and better address the challenges posed by the global market.


Fincantieri operates in a global context in which different nationalities contribute to nurturing an ever more open corporate culture. We recognize the value of this context and we cultivate it with recruiting and job rotation policies aimed at promoting the sharing of know-how and best practices, as well as the integration and inclusion of people.


In terms of gender diversity, the Group has recorded an increase in the number of women employees in recent years, although there are objective conditions related to the typical characteristics of shipbuilding.
With a view to providing women with particular support during maternity, the Company's Sustainability Plan has introduced a smart working pilot project in Italy which is currently being trialled.
The Company's focus on work-life balance is put into practice through various initiatives: there are special arrangements with day care centres, seaside or mountain resorts during the summer, daytime summer camps and after-school activities for the children of employees.


We are constantly working to promote the insertion of people with different physical and psychological abilities, in line with the characteristics of shipbuilding and the risk profiles associated with the industry. 420 people with disabilities work in the Fincantieri Group.


Age diversity also plays an important role and is a value for our company. This is because constant dialogue between people from different age groups combines different experiences, helping the Group to grow and improving its capacity to compete in the market.
