At Enel the recruitment and selection process is based on seeking the most talented people with the most appropriate skills and specialized technical capabilities for the jobs they will perform.
The instruments and channels used to recruit applicants are first of all the corporate websites and also the contacts with schools and universities with which the Company cooperates actively on specific projects. People with the most critical technical skills – such as those connected with plant design, up-stream gas, and renewable energy sources or regarding environmental impacts or plant safety – were also found thanks to targeted agreements with specialized headhunting firms, some of which located abroad. The selection process includes an assessment of abilities and motivation, also focusing on technical and professional issues.
Skill assessment of junior and senior employees reflects the key capabilities that are expected from different profiles, as specified by the Group’s leadership model.
The enhancement of the “global” identity of Enel people is also the objective which inspires various internal mobility programs aimed at promoting and creating value from the development of international professional programs, in line with the provisions of the corporate Management Model. In 2011, in particular, 15 internal job postings were published as well as a further 35 “non-managerial” positions to be filled within the international scope of the Group. These processes involved a total of around 500 people who decided to apply from the various Enel Divisions and countries.
In 2011 investment also continued in various international mobility programs, such as the International Mobility and the Twin Position Exchange Program. In total there are more than 500 people in the whole Group working in a country different than their country of origin.
In 2011 the activities undertaken to promote and enhance Enel’s image as the “Employer of Choice” in the most sought-after segments of the labor market led the Group to achieve, for the third year running, certification in Italy as a “Top Employer” by the international institute CRF.
