In Italy alone, in the last four years, from 2015 to 2018, the Group has grown on average by over 100 employees a year, mainly young people around the age of 30. For 2019, as well, growth is expected to be in line with that of previous years, meaning a total of 150 permanent entries.
The new hires are mainly provided for the production area of the headquarters in Piombino Dese (PD), object of an expansion plan in recent months, with the construction of a new building on an area of 17,000 square meters, where about 200 employees between administrative and workers will work at full capacity.
The professional profiles on which the selections will focus include:
- Employees in production
- Technicians specialized in electromechanics, mechatronics for maintenance and continuous improvement
- Research and Development Engineers or Project Manager
- Quality Control Technicians
In general, the search in the production area focuses on candidates with a technical and mechanical degree, while for staff positions a three-year degree or Master's Degree in Engineering or Biotechnology is required (the latter being one of the main areas Stevanato Group will focus onin the coming years), followed by Mathematics, Chemistry and Economics.
In the section of Stevanato Group website dedicated to job opportunities (https://www.stevanatogroup.com/careers/job-opportunities/) it is possible to find the open positions and send your application.
The Graduate Program is also a placement program for young graduates. This is an 18-month course, which includes 2 job rotations within two functions, decided on the basis of the educational background. A tutor follows the professional development of the graduate, who, after 18 months, will be assigned to the final department. For this year's edition, about 12 entries are expected: the selections started in June and the first 9 graduates will enter the company by the end of September, while the research continues above all in the Quality and Operations areas.
The program is part of a broader integrated human resources development plan, supporting the Vision and the business plan. The plan is divided into a series of project activities that cover all areas of Human Resources, including: analysis of process efficiency; talent development policy through the evaluation of performance and the potential on which to base career plans and job rotation; targeted training plans and paths for the development of "soft" and "technical" skills through an Academy; a Welfare system for all Group companies.
Finally, 2019 saw Stevanato Group reach the 70th anniversary of its foundation. Several activities have involved both customers and employees at the headquarters in Piombino Dese and all production plants in Italy and around the world, with the aim of thanking the stakeholders for this important step in the Group's history and recognizing the their role in the path of company growth.
Following the March celebrations with over 300 customers, partners and institutions, culminating in the organization of Innovation Day, during the month of May the Piombino Dese plant, for example, opened its doors to the families of employees through “open factory” visits, while in the afternoons of the past 14 and 15 September the "Family Day" was organized at the Palazzetto dello Sport in Piombino Dese, with fun activities and thematic workshops on the Stevanato world for adults and children.
