Snam respects the dignity of everyone and offers equal opportunity in all phases and all aspects of employment: selection, hiring, training, compensation, promotion, transfers and termination of employment, not partaking in any form of discrimination that may derive from differences in sex, age, state of health, nationality or political or religious opinions.
Female presence in the group is limited due to the characteristics of our business, which demands particular availability for shift work and continual travel and is therefore not always suitable for some candidates. In particular, the category “Manual workers” is comprised only of male personnel.

With regard to maternity, personnel benefit from more favourable provisions than those required by law, while maintaining the corporate benefits provided. Maternity pay during the mandatory leave period is 100% of the salary for the month prior to commencement of leave (compared with 80% as required by law). During the year, 393 parental leaves terminated and 98% of the workers on such leave returned to work. In detail, 325 men and 68 women made use of parental leave, 97% and 100% returning to work, respectively.
A guide has been published on the intranet for both biological and adoptive parents with a view to raising awareness about their rights and highlighting the Company’s dedication to parents. A total of 41 workers (male and female) took leave in 2012.
The group employs 322 disabled people, whose development programmes focus on training and integration into corporate processes.
There is not a significant presence of ethnic and linguistic minorities in our workforce, partly due to the fact that Snam operates only in Italy.
