Curriculum screening and selection: HR proceeds examinating the applications received from various channels, defining a first list of candidates. The selection takes place following the logic of equal opportunities married by the Group and it must be representative of both genders.
Cognitive phase: in this stage HR proceeds autonomously to cognitive and motivational interviews using the aid of technical-logical and psycho-attitude tests, in order to evaluate at 360° the different profiles.
