Sustainability

Our people



A safe and inclusive work environment

We value our employees and invest in regular training and adequate development processes which align with the company’s culture and values. These elements are essential in ensuring that our team fulfil their full potential, as well as ensuring company growth, innovation, and sustainability.

As expressed within our Code of Ethics, we protect our employees and promote their physical and moral integrity. We do this by aligning our working environment and conditions with the industry’s best practices, respecting all relevant national primary and secondary regulations (which adopt among other conventions, that of the ILO [International Labour Organization] confirmed in Italy, including all fundamental and governance conventions). Our human rights protection measures are also in line with the 2030 Agenda, and with the Declaration of Human Rights, especially regarding the refusal of appeal in relation to any type of forced or child labour.

In accordance with ESG objectives, our approach is focused on four main areas, actively attesting continuity with the company principles and values of the protection and security of our employees. This approach:

  • gives value to diversity and inclusion;
  • involves employees in welfare profiles;
  • provides across-the-board training;
  • protects their health and safety.

Rai Way Top Employers 2022

Rai Way’s concerted efforts in promoting and developing the Company’s resources has been recognised by its annual achievement of the Top Employers Italia certificate. This attests that the Company is capable of developing top working conditions, reconciling any instances of competition, and of maintaining the welfare of the organisation.




Diversity and Inclusion

We promote the creation of an inclusive working environment, and guarantee the absence of any type of discrimination.

In line with the principles expressed above, we focus our efforts explicitly on the following directives:

  • guaranteeing and appreciating diversity and equal opportunity through roles dedicated to Diversity & Community Relations, as well as through the active contribution of the Equal Opportunity Commission;
  • promoting digital recruitment processes, open to those of legal age, inspired by criteria which, respecting diversity and equal opportunity, will ensure a pluralism across a range of roles;
  • supervising and developing specific initiatives for Diversity Management, in order to appreciate diversity in the company culture and experience in an inclusive way. This also promotes and develops investigations of the company’s internal climate, in order to periodically evaluate employee satisfaction levels;
  • consistently assess the management of disabilities, alongside multiple support companies for disabled workers as referred to by the Collective Group Contract and by internal guidelines. Alongside this, the company principles respect obligatory employment regulations in terms of fulfilling the hiring obligations outlined in Law 68/99. Great care in the management of specific situations is also ensured, which are brought to the attention of Human Resources with appropriate measures then taken to meet the needs of that specific case (i.e. reserved parking spaces in the offices).






STEM Women: Training courses to encourage knowledge on the theme of diversity

As part of our “Role Model Project”, aimed at students in the 4th and 5th years of all high school and technical institutes, we have appointed female employees at Rai Way to carry out STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education to talk about their professional experience and to inspire female students to move towards schooling in scientific subjects.

We collaborate with Valore D to promote diversity

We have launched a collaboration with Valore D: an association which fights for gender equality and for an inclusive corporate culture in our country’s companies. The mutual objective is to promote inclusivity and gender diversity policies, and to encourage the sharing of good corporate practices and paths of dialogue with institutions.

Training

In 2020, we enhanced our digital culture and evolved our way of working, addressing the covid-19 health emergency in a resilient and effective way. We adopted an appeal in the form of e-Learning, and introduced courses dedicated to the development of soft skills, digital culture, strategic and market vision, as well as targeted coaching courses.

Specific training has been developed for the company's managerial staff through the implementation of courses in Digital innovation, Quality and remote communication and team management topics.

We confirmed the activities related to the strategic management training plan, aimed at strengthening leadership, strategic and market vision and public speaking, enriching it with external experiences and networking.

We have also invested in training courses on the company’s ethical standards, as well as on the topic of anticorruption, involving all employees. Commitment to training remained strong, including training on occupational health and safety, the environment and specialist/linguistic knowledge, in line with market best practices.

In 2020, we carried out 18,428 hours of training, of which 747 were aimed at managers and executives, with an average of roughly 30.5 hours per employee.





Welfare and Wellbeing

We ensure the wellbeing of our employees and promote consistent enhancement of results and conduct, through the implementation of innovative tools such as the work-life balance model.

In 2020, we confirmed the implementation of corporate work-from-home solutions, as well as offering work-life balance options. Since March, we adopted a flexible emergency work model facilitated by specific tools and equipment; in this way, we were able to maintain a balance between safeguarding the continuity of company operations and productivity and the key objective of protecting employee health.

Within this new way of working, we have conducted targeted analyses and developed activities which will enable a transformation towards the establishment of a post-emergency work-from-home method. This is supported by surveys aimed at the entire community within the company regarding flexible work and digital readiness. We have also provided dedicated training courses.

Alongside this, we have carried out targeted listening activities in understanding the needs of our employees. These are achieved through yearly investigations on the internal company climate, monitoring the results and implementing solutions for the issues expressed.
