Our company sees human capital as a value, therefore we continuously invest in the development and enhancement of our people, who are the key for the success of a Group that has always been focused on the challenges and innovations of the future.


The Group's People Strategy, developed over the years, was bolstered and updated in 2022 in order to build a solid foundation for the Group's growth and achieve successful performance, in an increasingly complex and dynamic scenario, and to design a sustainable future by seizing the opportunities of the digital and ecological transitions, in line with the new Business Plan and Sustainability Plan.
The implementation of the People Strategy, through cross-functional tools and processes, ensures, on the one hand, the consistency of HR objectives with business objectives and, on the other hand, the centrality of people in the organization.


We defined our Employee Value Proposition, Fincantieri, People Ahead, which represents the link between employer branding strategies and the specific actions of managing, training and developing our people, i.e. that set of priorities shared between the Company and its employees.

Our commitment to the effective implementation of the Group’s People Strategy was recognized by the Top Employers Institute, a company that has certified the quality of people management and development processes as well as the work environment, including Fincantieri in the pool of companies certified as Top Employer Italy 2024.
