The Human Factor

People are the key element of every transformation”: this principle characterises Cattolica’s philosophy in terms of the management and enhancement of human resources.

The Company’s ambition is to quickly become a place of work that is not only better but among the best, and it has been strengthened hand in hand with the success of the initiatives dedicated to employees.

It is the history of Cattolica itself, starting from the primacy attributed to the individual in his/her uniqueness and originality, which has favoured thinking that considers the growth of associates as an indispensable aspect.


The Training

The total number of training hours provided in 2019 were 42,001 (2018: 54,436).

Training is aimed at all company resources including the Directors of Group Companies, and remains a central theme in the organisational development strategy.

Continuous and effective training enables an organisation to be prepared and responsive to the demands of an increasingly dynamic and erratic external environment.

The newly established Academy and People Development unit works to analyse training needs and respond effectively and flexibly, in order to raise the professional quality of the workforce and identify the specificities of people, helping them to evolve in the direction of corporate growth guidelines.
