Nestlè Italia launches a platform for virtual company visits
To digitally enhance the talent selection process
Rome, June 9 (askanews) – Nestlé Italia launches, in collaboration with vFAIRS, a digital platform to let aspiring candidates discover the Italian reality of the group. A virtual journey through the Nestlé factories and offices in Italy, the brands, values, sustainability initiatives and concrete activities promoted in the communities in which it operates.
The platform is accessible to everyone and is designed as a solution to digitally enhance the selection and attraction processes of young talents. A revolution in the recruiting process and a new step in the Group’s effort to support and enhance the talent and ideas of young people in order to avoid a “generation lockdown”.
“We at Nestlé have always been convinced that young people can make an important contribution to the development of the company. For this reason, for some time we have been committed to offering opportunities to girls and boys through hiring, internships, training activities and job orientation – said Giacomo Piantoni, human resources director of the Nestlé group in Italy – The pandemic has not dampened our effort to support the younger generations, but during the lockdown we missed a lot not being able to host all the students we used to receive to show them our company reality. This was the driving force that prompted us to choose the virtual tour tool to allow us to make Nestlé known to all those who are interested ”.
In Italy Nestlé is committed between now and 2025 to offer 1,450 direct hires and 1,400 internships in Italy, which become 40,000 new opportunities if we consider Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. This milestone is part of the Nestlé Needs YOUth project, inaugurated in 2013, which was the first education and training program launched by a company globally with the aim of tackling youth unemployment and offering economic opportunities to 10 million young people. around the world by 2030.
