Snam Diversity

Snam respects the dignity of everyone, and offers equal opportunities in every step and aspect of the employment relationship, avoiding all forms of discrimination based on sex, age, health, nationality, political opinion or religious views.

For Snam the diversity is a value and gender diversity is especially regarded as a resource for the company development.

This is proved by the fact that the female component in 2017 grew compared with the previous year (+6.5%) notwithstanding a large portion of the business activities, in particular the operational ones, requires a technical training which on the market is owned by candidates which are mostly male.

At the end of the year, the Company’s female population consisted of 393 personnel equal to the 13.5% of all the employees (12.8% in 2016) and 36 women have a part-time contract (out of the 42 currently rolling).

The focus on the gender diversity is a corporate objective for 2018 also, turning into a commitment to recruiting at least 50% of women for staff positions and to increase the average training hours (from 15.8 hours in 2017 to 20 hours in 2018).
