Diasorin’s commitment

Considering the nature of the Group’s business, focused on knowledge and characterized by the desire to evolve and improve, the enrichment of skills is one of the fundamental pillars at Diasorin. The Group has therefore developed a structured pathway for the training and development of employees, beginning from their first day at the Company.

Every year, broad training themes are identified, with respect to which specific activities are designed and developed concerning the adaptation of employees’ technical or interdisciplinary skills, but also their soft skills.

One example of in-house training is the program focused on the preparation of technical staff who, in each geographical area, deal with the installation and maintenance of machines at customers’ premises. Indeed, service employees receive training entirely managed and monitored by colleagues who work in the same area at
Corporate level.

The Group is also committed to training employees in the field of performance management, through courses aimed at refining management leadership skills, managing human relationships, promoting dialog between colleagues and increasing employees’ sense of belonging, as well as courses related to the protection of health and safety. In 2022, courses were provided aimed not only at improving technical skills, but also at strengthening employees’ soft skills, including People Empowerment, Time Management, Leadership, Communication and Change Management.

The courses are held by internal staff or external collaborators, with a preference for in-house training, in order to enhance employees’ knowledge and expertise.
