A dynamic training programme, focused on quality and that can be tweaked to bridge any gaps between expertise acquired and the skills necessary to meet the company’s development requirements, underpinned the courses provided to Mondadori Group employees.

The training programs adopt an innovative, distinctive and business-oriented approach to provide the necessary skills and tools to effectively cope with internal and external challenges. The common thread that binds the courses delivered to the Mondadori Group employees is to encourage integration between the different areas of the company, to engender greater efficiency and synergies and develop skills and attitudes that are consistent with the Company’s goals and strategies, through ongoing comparison between skills acquired and skills required in the company’s evolutionary needs.

Ad hoc training

Ad hoc training consists of a series of specific initiatives capable of supporting the company’s new internal needs, in line with individual strategic targets and tracks. Specifically, this includes tracks aimed at strengthening leadership and negotiation skills, raising awareness around digital publishing topics and writing techniques for new media, as well as creating ad hoc tracks for the web marketing and social media sectors.

In terms of its methodology, ad hoc training is increasingly combining traditional classroom teaching methods with progressive and multimedia forms of learning that favour action learning and learning by doing, which test participants’ skills and acquired knowledge as they work.

The introduction of mentor figures, especially in terms of technological and digital innovation, contributes to involving management in the training process, keeping it focussed on company goals.

Language courses and training on safety in the workplace

In addition to ad hoc training, we also offer foreign language courses and obligatory training on worker health and safety, both in classroom and e-learning settings.
