Pirelli employees around the world

A note on methodology

The headcount at December 31, 2011 was 34,259 employees (29,573 in 2010 and 29,570 in 2009), including the acquisition of 2,772 employees at the Kirov, Russia plant in December 2011. The social and environmental performance of the Kirov plant has not been considered in this report since the plant was not included in Pirelli scope during 2011. Its performance will be accounted for in the Sustainability Report beginning in 2012.

Therefore, all the social performance indicators mentioned in this report are calculated on a comparable basis to the previous years, and thus without reflecting the impact of Kirov.

On a comparable basis, the headcount at December 31, 2011 was 31,487. The following table reflects their distribution on four continents.

The Pirelli headcount at December 31, 2011 was 34,259 employees, including the acquisition of 2.772 employees at the Kirov, Russia plant in December.

On a comparable consolidation basis, the headcount at December 31, 2011 was 31,487 employees, for a net increase of 1,914 employees a year earlier, including 234 executives and white collar employees and 1,680 blue collar workers.

The overall change in employees in 2011 was characterised by substantial growth.

In the mature countries1, efficiency improvement plans continued with technological and organisational restructuring at Settimo Torinese, with the launch of the new Car and Truck Centre (-23 resources). The same was done in Germany, in accordance with the targets defined in the 2009 agreement (-70 employees). At the same time, young, new university graduates and senior employees were hired in Italy to support new growth initiatives in the Product, Operations and Sales & Marketing areas (+86 employees).

In emerging markets2, the increases in production volume contributed to expansion of the workforce in China (+409), Romania (+348), Turkey (+199) – following the start-up of Formula 1 tyre production – Brazil (+594) – both in terms of volumes and specific industrial projects – and in Mexico (+199), with training planned for start-up of the new factory. The changes resulting from incoming and outgoing employees in 2011 shows a sharp increase in hiring from the previous year, mainly due to the increased volume of factory production.

Pirelli does not employ anyone under the age of 14. The Tyre Sector employs 30 young workers between 16 and 18 years of age (12 in Brazil, 9 in Germany, 3 in Switzerland, 2 in the United Kingdom and 4 in Venezuela), and 4 young workers between the ages of 14 and 16 on an exceptional basis (2 in Brazil, 1 in Germany and 1 in Switzerland), as part of training and induction schemes in compliance with local laws.
