Messina: “Intesa Sanpaolo invests in the training of five thousand young people”

Intesa Sanpaolo will be supporting the training of approximately 5,000 young people over the next 3 years, in order to help them enter the labour market, within the context of its partnership with Generation, a global non-profit initiative created by McKinsey & Company in 2015, with the aim of contributing to reducing youth unemployment. This was announced by Managing Director Carlo Messina at the end of the conference “Intesa Sanpaolo’s social and cultural commitment for Italy” which saw the participation of eminent Italian and international figures. One year on from the presentation of the strategic plan, Messina reiterated the concept that “helping the needy, focusing on young people, protecting and valorising the country’s artistic and cultural heritage, and supporting the circular economy, are all in our Group’s DNA and represent the Group’s identity, and we want to continue to invest in order to deal with individuals’ difficulties: we are flying the Italian flag abroad in this regard”. Messina emphasised “the strength of those foundations with interests in the Group’s equity”, and explained that “paying a lot of dividends to those foundations enables them to invest in order to meet the company’s requirements”.
