Fincantieri Corporate University is its managerial training school, run in collaboration with its partners: the best-known business schools in Italy. It provides technical and managerial training courses aimed at developing employees’ skills through the different stages of their individual development paths, with the aim of creating a common skills base, encouraging the sharing of Corporate values and the Group's natural orientation towards distinctive organizational behavior.


In the field of human capital development processes, the Group has adopted a system of annual individual performance appraisals for several years now. This is one of the fundamental tools for managing human resources, which besides aiming to improve employees’ performance by means of individual feedback, also serves to support meritocracy, to customize personal development processes and to plan training appropriate for the skills gaps that come to light.

Analyzing the results of this systematic, periodical process allows the best organizational tools to realign skills to be chosen, to plan training programs to improve critical areas and to nourish professional growth


Over the years, Fincantieri has introduced a procedure to evaluate the potential of its resources with the aim of assessing, capitalizing on and developing the wealth of managerial skills and experience in the Company, to set individual development plans and to plan managerial growth paths.


This process is a crucial opportunity for development: on the one hand it brings to light strengths, areas for improvement, motivation for individual resources to grow and increased self-awareness of one's own capabilities, and on the other hand it maps skills in order to put together effective development plans in terms of short/mid-term training activities, coaching and mentoring, and planning career paths and job rotation.
