FS Italiane awarded prize for innovation and recruiting

Rome, 04 March 2019

FS Italiane is among the top Italian industrial groups for innovation and on-line job-hunting experience.

The group was the champion of innovation at the 2018 Premio dei Premi and achieved first place in the general ranking drawn up by the Swedish talent communication firm, Potential Park for best on-line job-hunting experience.

On the one hand, the two awards confirm the commitment of FS Italiane to establishing the central role of its people, the true strength of the company and a fundamental resource for the group’s growth, and on the other hand, the role of innovation as an ideal tool for improving the sustainability of the industrial processes.

Specifically, the Innovate scheme was selected by the Premio dei Premi jury as among the most innovative initiatives created by Italian industrial groups with an international scope and received the award today at Palazzo Madama, in the presence of the President of the Senate Maria Elisabetta Alberti Casellati. Created within FS Italiane to develop new business ideas, the corporate business scheme Innovate started in May 2018, with the launch of a call for ideas and contributors among its employees. Among more than one thousand ideas gathered, and almost 700 operational supporter applications received for the development of the ideas, in December 2018, this project Treasure Co-Island won the award. The project plans the redevelopment and transformation of FS Italiane real estate assets that are no longer used for railway activities into co-working spaces with innovative layouts.

Furthermore, the group took top place in the ranking of the Swedish company, Potential Park, as the favourite company of students and new graduates for the best on-line job-hunting experience. FS Italiane came top among the 50 Italian firms, out of more than 730 global companies, in the general ranking and scaled the ranking in the Career Website and Mobile categories, for its simple and clear use of the “Work with us” section, from both desktop and mobile devices.
