Our people: Our approach

Social Responsibility

Human resources play a crucial role in Terna’s activities. It is people who have the peculiar, rare, or unique technical expertise regarding electricity that enables Terna to carry out its activities as well as possible, with a high level of professional competence and operating efficiency, and to implement the Company’s strategy and achieve its objectives. Diligence in renewing these capabilities constitutes an essential element of Terna’s managerial approach to human resources. Equally important is another element: concern for occupational safety, which is required by operating activities featuring particular risks, such as tasks performed at heights of many meters above the ground and maintenance work on live lines.

Over time, the importance of these aspects has led to an approach based on:

  • concern for safety and the prevention of injuries to ensure the physical integrity of employees;
  • the design of management and development systems aimed at improving performance and developing individual capabilities;
  • investment in training to enable the Company and its employees to grow;
  • compensation and welfare policies aimed at aligning individual performances with the Company’s goals and providing economic security for employees and their families;
  • a well-organized system of industrial relations based on the involvement of the labor unions in numerous aspects of corporate life;
  • listening to employees through surveys of their opinions.

Policies regarding employees are established by the Human Resource and Organization Department, while resource management is entrusted, in addition to the above-mentioned Department, also to the heads of other departments. Aspects regarding safety are the responsibility of the Corporate Safety Department.
