Cristiana’s experience is not an exceptional case in the Prysmian world: in 2015, 39 new graduates from 18 different countries were involved in a 2-year international experience in countries other than their own.

International mobility of staff encourages the spread of Prysmian’s culture and values in all the branches in the world, enables the transfer of managerial and technical know-how from one country to another and is essential for the professional and managerial growth of young graduates entering the company.

“Prysmian is the only producer of optical fibre in Italy. We have the know- how, the technology and expertise to create the most advanced broad-band telecommunications networks. We must invest to maintain world leadership.”

Valerio BattistaChief Executive Officer of Prysmian Group
