“In a competitive environment characterized by immediacy and rapid changes, the human resources of a dynamic publishing group are called to renew themselves constantly and to pursue innovation while constantly putting themselves into play.
Managing these processes and guiding professional development in this complex and changing environment is the main task of our Human Resources Department, which has placed continual training and professional development at the centre of its strategy with particular attention paid to young and innovative employees.”
Enrico Selva Coddè, Director of Human Resources, Organisation and Information Systems
Since its foundation in 1907, Mondadori’s mission has been to encourage the dissemination of culture and ideas, through products, activities and services aimed at satisfying the needs and tastes of the broadest possible range of people. In pursuit of this mission, Mondadori combines a love of culture and editorial quality with the laws of the market and a capacity to identify and anticipate change, while respecting and protecting the values that underlie the publisher’s role in civil society.
The current national and international scenarios along with the rapid transformation of the competitive environment in the media sector make the ability of the Group to renew itself and evolve quickly and effectively increasingly important.
With this in mind, the human resources department has been given the central job of governing and guiding the transformation rather than standing by waiting for the consequences.
The department looks to attract and develop dynamic, proactive, results-oriented people motivated by the possibility of continued growth.
The new generation of employees in the Group also has a strong passion for editorial products as well as the ability to work in a group in an international and innovative environment.
Particular effort goes into the process of developing young professionals and managers.
Training is one of the principal instruments used to stimulate and strengthen the skills of the Group’s employees. For this reason, the Human Resources department updates daily the content of its training programs, its formative methodologies, and plans for internal growth.
The Code of Ethics places particular attention on human resources, a fundamental factor in the company’s development.
