The cross-cutting of skills and opportunities was promoted by strengthening the Job Posting process providing employees with the possibility to apply for vacant positions in various Group companies. 118 new Job Postings were published for a total of 149 positions in 2009. In total, over 2,650 applications were collected and the success rate exceeded 62%, filling open positions internally.
Consistent with the new organisational model, mobility at the Banca dei Territori was strongly geared to improving people’s level of competence and coverage of commercial and managerial roles. During 2009 there were about 1,400 transfers from Departments or Regional Offices to branches which led to shifts from administrative to commercial tasks. Over 650 transfers were approved in the Banca dei Territori Division based on employees’ applications.
