Having a highly skilled workforce is a critical factor for sustainable growth; this capability base is an asset to be promoted, enhanced and developed.
That’s why we carefully select the best human resources able to contribute to the company’s growth and we deliver continuing training as an essential tool supporting our business.
We monitor and assess constantly our people’s organisational behaviour, performance, know-how, experience and potential, using the most effective methodologies to plan HR management and professional growth in line with company needs.
This approach also boosts staff employability and career opportunities in positions that are stimulating and professionally and financially rewarding.
The year 2016 marked an important milestone, as we revisited organisational and procedural models to best handle the new scenarios, with the aim of ranking among the safest and most efficient players in the refining industry.
The ‘Project Focus’ programme, launched in 2010 to boost business performance and organisational efficiency across the Group, helped us to examine the ways in which individuals handle their duties and responsibilities.
In particular, our aim was to build a shared set of values and boost individual awareness, sense of responsibility and commitment to achieving objectives. Lastly, we focused on maintaining over time the results achieved.
The new system added an important qualitative aspect to the assessment of quantitative and financial results, drawing staff’s attention not to results alone, but also to the methods for achieving them, highlighting the need to act at all times in line with the company’s stated and shared values.
To win this challenge it is necessary to have a growth mindset, which builds the assets possessed, which include people and equipment, to generate profit and create value for the whole community.
