Andamento degli Organici del Gruppo

The trend in the Group’s workforce over the last two years has been characterised by consistent growth (+ 3,986 employees in total, +2,196 in 2007 and +1,790 in 2006), due to the hiring, by Pirelli Tyre, of personnel to strengthen the new industrial plants in China and Romania, the increased labour workforce in Brazil as a result of the changes in the work pattern (in the Campinas and Gravatai factories) and the increased production volumes in Feira de Santana, Gravatai and Santo André. As for Pirelli RE, compared to 2005, an increase of 1,068 employees was recorded mainly due to the takeover of the company Credit Servicing in the NPL sector, the strengthening of the presence in Facility Management through the purchase of Ingest from the Fiat Group and the expansion in Germany with the acquisition of DGAG. Also in Germany, the acquisition is about to be completed of the whole of the service division of the affiliate Baubecon, a company with 298 employees.

As regards the annual movements of incoming and outgoing personnel, seasonal work should be taken into account, a typical phenomenon in the tyre sector that requires temporary blue collars to stand in for permanent workers (a total of approx. 700 people in Germany and Turkey) to maintain production volumes constant during the summer months.

The Group does not employ anyone under the age of 14. The tyre sector employs 51 young workers between 16 and 18 years of age (35 in Brazil, 1 in the UK and 15 in Germany) and as an exception 9 young workers between 14 and 16 years of age (8 in Brazil and 1 in Germany), as part of training and induction schemes in compliance with local laws.
