Employability: the value of training

We enhance the talents of our people

We work so that skills are recognized and talent is free to express itself. We firmly believe that this approach stimulates creativity, innovation and change, contributing to the improvement of our organization and the search for original solutions for an ever-changing market.

A growing digital culture

We promote initiatives aimed at acquiring skills associated with the use of new technologies. For example, the Edison Digital Academy, launched in 2020 and developed in collaboration with Talent Garden aims to provide lifelong learning on the digital transformation front. The program involved around 150 colleagues during the first year of activity, while with the second edition, which started in February 2022, we aim to triple participation over a 2-year horizon. One of the other initiatives activated during 2021 is a training activity dedicated to cybersecurity: the course aims, on the one hand, to protect the employee and the company from the risk of cyber fraud and, on the other hand, to raise employees' awareness of the recognition of suspicious digital communications.

Innovation and entrepreneurship

In 2021, the E-DEAS program, the "Call 4 Innovation" addressed to all Edison Group employees, who are invited to suggest ideas and innovation projects to be implemented with the support of the Innovation Team and Innovation Coaches from outside the company, has been confirmed for a second edition. The objective of E-DEAS is twofold: on one hand it aims to identify innovation ideas to be transformed into projects with high business potential, and on the other it is a training tool on issues related to entrepreneurship and the dissemination of a culture of innovation within the company.

The growth of the younger generation

The Young Community is the training and development program dedicated to young recent graduates joining Edison. New initiatives introduced during 2021 included a new skill lab on entrepreneurship, a mini-master in economics dedicated to non-economists, and an in-depth course on energy economics for economists.

Human capital and inclusion

We put our people at the centre by promoting a fair and inclusive work environment that respects health and safety.
