A group of 47 new professionals
has joined the company last month. All of them are part of the 7th wave of the Prysmian Group “Build the future” Graduate Program,
the initiative to hire young graduates from all over the world with bachelor’s degrees in Engineering or Business Administration.
The new hires have spent two weeks in Milan for their induction course, organised by Prysmian Group Academy in partnership with SDA Bocconi School of Management, during which they learned about Business Fundamentals, Cross-Cultural Management and the Cable Industry.
During the second week of the induction course , the graduate trainees had the opportunity to meet the Group's top management, who explained Prysmian Group’s strategic approach to the market and business and stressed the importance of product technology and innovation. Visits were also organised to the R&D labs in Milan and to the Merlino plant, providing a chance to see cable production in action.
The last day, they had a presentation and an open discussion with Valerio Battista, CEO Prysmian Group, who gave them a lot of input and advice such as:
“Be free to dream, there are no limits on what we can realize together, think extraordinary then realize concretely”
The new graduates will have the chance to be part of an internal job rotation in their home country with 3 months in the Research & Development, 3 months in Operations, 3 months in Sales & Marketing functions. Then, a new period of 3 months has been created to prepare the international assignment. A very important part of the program is the mentoring role played by senior managers, who will act as a point of reference for the graduate trainees throughout the program.
And of course, a 24-month international placement will follow within a specific function, during which their involvement and presence in the organisation will make a valuable contribution to the business goals.
