International mobility

The International Mobility Policy, of considerable strategic value in the development of leadership within the Company, deserves special attention.

About half of current Pirelli management and senior management personnel have had one or more significant work experiences in a foreign country, which represents a strategic value for internationalisation in the development of leadership.

Over the past decade, an average of about 250 people per year, including executives, managers and white collar employees of different nationalities and cultures have exchanged know-how, developed their professional skills and exploited new managerial opportunities, thereby contributing to the creation of truly international Group.

At the end of 2013, the aggregate expatriate population was around 240 persons, with 73% consisting of non-executive employees, 15% of them were women, representing 17 different nationalities and transferred to 32 different countries on all five continents.
