FS Italiane is the "Best Employer of choice" even for 2018

Rome, 8th February 2018

FS Italiane Group, for the fourth consecutive year, takes first place in the classification of the companies that young graduates want to work for most.

Best Employer of Choice 2018, the Cesop HR Consulting Company survey, reconfirmed FS Italiane as the leader in the ranking of industrial and production realities preferred as a place of work. First place was already assigned to FS Italiane in 2017, 2016 and 2015. The statistical sample included 2,500 young graduates with an average age of 26 years, representatives of the national population by gender, geographical area and type of degree, who evaluated a panel of 100 national and multinational companies.

The result of FS Italiane, achieved not only globally but also in the category of technical-scientific companies, is the confirmation of the good result of the transformation and relaunching process that involved the Group during the past years, and which allowed it to overtake important national and international companies that are always greatly appreciated by young people, for example Google and Mondadori, ranked in second and third place. Starting from the 15th position in 2009, FS Italiane was classified 13th in 2010, 8th in 2011, 3rd in 2012, 2nd in 2013, 3rd in 2014, finally reaching the top position in the last four years.

The Group has been promoting specific and varied activities for years in order to attract the best talents: Employer Branding through the Web and social networks, meetings with young graduates at Job Meeting, Career e Recruiting Day, work targeting initiatives in collaboration with the top Universities and schools, proposals of Master’s degrees, degree theses, internships, workshops, seminars, awards and competitions based on ideas, the insertion of numerous graduates into companies following criteria of merit and transparency, ad hoc training projects.

A few months ago, FS Competition, the Group’s first Recruiting Day, was the perfect occasion for selecting and inserting 28 Economy and Engineering graduates (48% women) coming from different Italian universities quickly and innovatively into the company.
