International, multicultural, innovative, technological. The beating heart of Leonardo is made up of over 49,000 people in more than 20 countries worldwide.

Leonardo believes its strength lies in the coming together of diverse cultures, which enriches all involved. For this reason, international mobility is an integral part of the professional development path established by the Company.

We employ over 10,000 aeronautical, aerospace, electronics, mechanical, information technology and telecommunications engineers. It is through the development of these highly qualified scientific resources, that Leonardo is able to guarantee the technological excellence that makes it one of the major global players in the Aerospace, Defence and Security industries.




We share knowledge in order to grow together with our people

Through training and skills development programmes, we invest in the future of our people and those of Leonardo

We share knowledge in order to grow together with our people

In this ever-changing context of business, we are committed to providing a work environment that rewards merit and competence, offering everyone the opportunity to recognise and develop their talent so that it becomes an integral and functional part of an ambitious shared design.

Targeted development and training initiatives accompany people throughout their professional career, with the aim of identifying and enhancing the best talents and enriching the skills and competences of the entire company population. Training and development programmes on the values and key competences of the Group (Accelerate), initiatives aimed at enhancing individual professional paths and supporting internal mobility (Job Posting), projects aimed at transferring knowledge and enhancing the skills of our best professionals (Faculty).

These are just a few examples of the programmes through which Leonardo invests in its people and enhances their know-how, to make them increasingly able to respond to new challenges posed by the market, first and foremost that of continuous innovation.

Through personal development and training we also wish to instil our set of values and behaviours,  an integral part of Leonardo's DNA,  with the  Leonardo Leadership Framework, building a single identity around a common culture.

Pride in being part of Leonardo

Through listening and the continuous involvement of people we support the Group's growth and the change processes.


In Leonardo, the construction of a distinctive and multicultural identity is based on listening and on the continuous involvement of people, key elements in support of the integration and change processes of the Group. 
The listening and action model put in place makes it possible to identify the company’s strengths and areas for improvement and to launch targeted actions in response to the priorities for action that have emerged, verifying their effectiveness over time. 

At the beginning of 2019, in particular, we carried out an anonymous survey aimed at all employees worldwide, which confirmed the high level of engagement of our people and their pride in working at Leonardo.
Thanks to the survey, we were also able to assess the confidence of our employees in Leonardo’s commitment to the integrity of the business, explored further with some specific questions also on the possibility of reporting any unethical behaviour without fear of retaliation. 
In response to the results that emerged, a specific action plan was launched that involved all the Divisions, Companies and Professional Areas of the Group.
