As part of the process of listening to its staff, Poste Italiane has launched a survey called “V.A.L.O.R.E. Activities of listening to the staff of Poste Italiane”, aimed at analysing the perception of the working environment, the promotion of improvement processes and the level of involvement of employees

The respondents expressed their level of agreement with a series of statements related to the areas of interest, using a scale of assessment from 1 to 5 (from “I agree strongly” to “I do not agree at all”).
The majority of Poste Italiane's employees involved in the survey expressed very positive opinions in terms of the Company’s sentiment and reputation. In the analysis, 76% of employees (76% of women and 77% of men) stated that they felt that they were active and participated in the company.
