For better awareness and enhancement of human resources, Mondadori adopts the Performance Management system, aimed at providing a development and guidance tool for performance, in accordance with the company’s objectives.

The results of Performance Management are then reflected in the training programmes and organisational development measures, making them more consistent with the requirements of ongoing development of the company, as well as with the characteristics and aspirations of personnel.

Specialised and management training

This is a system of specific initiatives capable of supporting the new internal requirements of the company, in line with individual targets and specific strategic objectives. More specifically, this training is aimed at strengthening the leadership and negotiation skills, raising awareness of digital publishing issues and writing techniques in the new media and creating ad hoc courses in web marketing and social media. This trend is closely connected to the need to continuously enhance management and business skills, and supports the integration of the various areas in the Group through an across-the-board approach.

From a methodological perspective, the ad hoc training is gradually supplementing traditional classroom teaching with advanced and multimedia forms of learning that prioritise action learning and learning by doing, testing the skills and results of participants in the field. The introduction of mentoring figures, especially in the areas of technological and digital innovation, contributes to involving the management in the training process and keeping them focused on the company’s goals.

Language and workplace safety training

In addition to specialised and management courses, Mondadori has foreign language courses and mandatory training, in the classroom and through e-learning, on the issues of workplace health and safety.
