The Italian company has been awarded the prestigious
'Top Employers Italy 2018' certification, in recognition of its high standards
in terms of human resources management.
Genoa, 9 February 2018 - For the fifth
year running, Costa Cruises is one of the best Italian companies to work
for. That's what the Top Employers Institute has
decided, which awarded the company its prestigious Top Employers Italy 2018 certification.
The annual research conducted by
the Top Employers Institute certifies the best companies in the world in terms
of HR: the ones that offer excellent working conditions, that train and develop
talent at every level of the company and that constantly strive to improve and
optimise their best practices in the field of Human Resources.
The cornerstone of the Top
Employers selection procedure is participating in a strict and in-depth
research study - the HR Best Practices Survey - and achieving the requisite
high standards. As a guarantee of the certification's validity, all companies
undergo an audit, the purpose of which is to carefully verify the working
conditions offered. In particular, the Top Employers Institute performs an
in-depth examination of the following sectors: talent strategy; workforce
planning; on-boarding; learning & development; performance management;
leadership development; career & succession management; compensation &

different countries - comprising more than 19,000 employees, of whom
approximately 18,000 work on the 15 ships in service and about 1,000 in the
shoreside offices. In 2017 Costa Cruises provided about 850,000 total hours of training to its employees and took on more
than 3500 new resources. Over the
year highly innovative projects have been implemented, such as smart working for office workers and
the launch of courses at the new Accademia
Ospitalità Italiana Crociere, the first academy in Italy dedicated to the
highly qualified training of hotel professionals for cruise ships, established
in Arenzano, Genoa together with the Fondazione
ITS Accademia Italiana Marina Mercantile.
Antonella Varbaro, the Costa
Campus Director of Costa Cruises said: "In
a sector as competitive and dynamic as the cruise sector, human resources are
the element that really makes the difference and allows us to achieve the
highest levels of guest satisfaction. This is why we aim to continuously improve
our training and development policies and our staff management strategies.
Besides making us proud, the Top Employers certification that we have been
