[G4-25], [G4-26] Aside from the forum, the stakeholder engagement process takes place regularly during implementation of the company’s projects. For each project, the affected stakeholders are identified and priorities are assigned based on the importance of the stakeholder for the business objectives or its relevance in specific fields which are considered strategic by the Company (i.e. Contributing to the economic or cultural growth of the country with projects not strictly connected with business).
Once the relevant stakeholders have been identified for the project, the most suitable strategies for building relations are studied, which can include individual and group meetings, information sessions, shared projects, surveys, focus groups, etc.
The feedback that the various stakeholders provide to TIM is analysed in order to identify solutions the Company can offer to satisfy the specific requirements.
At the end of the feasibility analysis and verification process, TIM decides which solutions to offer and which projects and initiatives to undertake. Stakeholder involvement continues beyond this to monitor and adjust the initiatives.
TIM has drawn up general guidelines for group stakeholder engagement and a set of policies associated with different kinds of stakeholders, including customer service charters, a policy on relations with suppliers in purchasing processes, the code of conduct for protecting the data of other local operators, guidelines for relations with local authorities and other organisations, guidelines for voluntary contributions to the Community.
