Thanks to Prysmian’s recruitment programme, ‘Make It: A Manufacturing Career at Prysmian Group’, there are now 50 newly-hired manufacturing professionals from all around the world. These engineers and technical specialists come from outside the cable industry and have an average of five years’ work experience in manufacturing, operations, and quality functions. The programme began with a two-week induction, the first week in Milan, during which participants learned about Prysmian Group as a leading cable company, and the second in Mudanya, Turkey, at the Manufacturing Academy’s centre of excellence. During the induction, participants met the Group’s managers, listened to their speeches and shared their experiences with them. The programme was designed to introduce the engineers to the cable industry – which is new to most of them – while providing the basics of cable design, machinery, and processes specific to the industry.
“Our ‘Make It’ programme represents the first time we have taken such a unique approach to recruiting and onboarding. This is quite different from the typical spot-recruitment efforts, where we hire professionals from within the industry.”
