At TIM we believe that there is a profound positive relationship between inclusion and company performance.
And that companies that adopt an approach to make their work environments inclusive see better results. Furthermore, we found that the TIM people who feel most included, and those who have the greatest ability to include others, are also those who perform best.
This is why in 2009 we started on the path to being an increasingly inclusive company, taking care of our people and encouraging dialogue. We believe in everyone's responsibility and in everyone's contribution in achieving these goals.
Our commitment is constantly recognized: also in 2020 TIM was included in the Diversity & Inclusion Index compiled by Refinitiv and we entered the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index. In addition, we were placed in the Top 20 of the most inclusive brands during the Diversity Brand Awards. As part of the Women's Project, we launched the TIM Manifesto for the reduction of the gender gap together with self-assessment, role modeling and training campaigns to combat gender prejudice.
Our inclusion management programme includes volunteer projects, diversity enhancement activities and initiatives on work-life balance. The goal is to improve work quality and overall quality of life, enabling everyone to give their best. This was a very important issue especially on the occasion of the pandemic which saw the TIM group committed both for the community and for its people.
