At Alfa Acciai and Acciaierie di Sicilia human resources are regarded as vital in achieving competitive edge: firm commitment to enhancing their workforce’s professional skills and motivation is a fundamental element in the growth of a sustainable business.
In this regard, we have always privileged the loyalty of our employees at all levels, by generating a sense of guarantee and safety for both professional growth and individual life. In this decade that is particularly challenging in our target market, we could achieve strength as a result of changes in business organisation and management, supported by the pro-active response of our work teams, by focusing our efforts on production efficiency and quality. The human factor and the lean organisational model proved to be crucial in handling the digital transaction implemented by Alfa Acciai and Acciaierie di Sicilia.
The central role played by the human capital is reflected by the importance given to internal and external training activities. The Human Resources management policy aim at enhancing individual skills and develop them in teamwork and at safeguarding the worker health and safety, as well as improving the use of machines and equipment.
Proof of the importance given to training is the increasing number of training hours each year.
Training management entails the implementation of a continuous, cyclic process, divided into the following main stages:
At the end of each annual session, a training schedule is presented for the following year, detailing the training requirements identified. At the same time, the past year’s training report is presented and assessed.
The Alfa Acciai Group believes in young people and is committed to promote their access into the labour market, by investing in their desire to grow, learn and keep abreast of the times.
This is why the Alfa Acciai Group has recently set up Alfa Academy, a training project created in collaboration with the Machina Lonati ITS Academy Institute, the aim being to train young people to install and maintain industrial and steelmaking equipment.
The school programme offers the young participants classroom training sessions alternating with in-company work experience under a one-year apprenticeship contract.
