In terms of staffing, Chiesi’s basic philosophy is centered on internal promotions. Nowadays, most of the company’s executive personnel, such as product managers, area manager, etc., come from the sales department, having started as medical representatives.
To achieve this, the company places great emphasis both on the recruitment procedure, so that it has efficient personnel that can evolve, and on training, so that it can offer the required knowledge and skills for demanding positions.
Every time a vacancy appears, all the candidates are informed and the company follows transparent procedures based on the candidates’ standard and essential qualifications, their overall performance, their supervisor’s opinion and the results of the ‘external partner’ evaluation, where applicable.
The company keeps a file of curriculum vita and refers to these when it needs to expand its staff.
