Safety first

1. Occupational Health and Safety

At Tenova, safety is a top priority for the well-being of our people. We invested in new safety devices for our employees, with training sessions focused on specific topics and on the use of specialized tools. Additionally, we’ve enhanced our welfare services and increased awareness initiatives, including educational sessions on skin pathologies.

2. Talent

We consider ourselves a learning company: we upskill and reskill our employees through on-the job training, cultural exposure, and education programs. Tenova is also working on attracting new high potential professionals through local Career Fairs in Universities and sector associations, like AIST.

3. Benefits and Well-being

We know that attracting and retaining the right talent includes creating a package of benefits that proves our commitment to creating an equitable and supportive workplace.
To ensure our employees’ satisfaction, Tenova regularly carries out an internal feedback survey, a tradition established by the Techint Group.

4. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Tenova is committed to fostering a respectful and fair environment for all employees, irrespective of their gender, religion, origin, nationality, age, sexual orientation, or disability while tailoring diversity and inclusion programs.
Diversity is not only respected but also actively promoted, with ongoing efforts to narrow the gender gap.

We take a tech-forward approach, leveraging digital technologies, data gathering, data analysis, and dedicated training to deliver products  with significant safety advantages. To provide real-time and predictive analytics for our clients, we incorporate advanced monitoring features— including robotics, smart sensors, and AI directly into our products.
