Prysmian Group believes in the value of individuals, backgrounds, leadership styles and attitudes because each person has the potential to generate value to the company. Our global footprint enables to promote an inclusive environment, encouraging the development of our group culture and identity. Side by Side is the Prysmian Group’s project to promote diversity and inclusion at all levels of the organization.

"In 2016, we started our Diversity&Inclusion journey. We wanted a program that would be able to engage the entire organization across the globe and we called it Side by Side. Since then, a lot of initiatives have been launched, globally and locally. Diversity&Inclusion has become one of the most strategic pillar of our company culture. We strongly believe that leveraging on gender, age and cultural diversities means creating more value and we are constantly building a work environment where all our employees can feel understood, respected and included just as they are."  - Fabrizio Rutschmann, Chief HR Officer Prysmian Group.
