In Fincantieri, we grow with our people. We are a Company where everyone makes their ideas, practices, skills and actions available to everyone else, where there are international and multidisciplinary exchanges and dialogue, and where we share risks and achievements and create value, together.


Our idea of putting people at the core led to the launch in 2016 of Fincantieri for the Future: a change management project that envisages an organic path of change, which actively involves all employees, promoting information exchange and transparent communication, with the aim of increasing the sense of belonging and cohesion among employees, improving the workplace and the climate in the Company. The Group has set up a channel of constant listening and confrontation, which promotes the collection and sharing of ideas, opinions and suggestions from people, even through the distribution of surveys.


The Group’s People Strategy, defined over the years through the One Vision project, an ambitious HR transformation program at a global level, is developed precisely in this direction. It aims to achieve successful performance and design a sustainable future through continuous investment in improving the employee experience and constant enhancement of diversity, demonstrating even further that inclusiveness is an essential value for complex organizations.


As part of the One Vision project, in 2021 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 in 2021 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 2022.
