Nurseries and preschools
The MioNido nurseries for children of colleagues (or living as part of their families), aged between 3 months and 3 years, are internal facilities within the company, charging the same fees as local nurseries, with hours to suit the various requirements, aimed at improving work- life balance and quality of life in the Company.
9 company nurseries are currently operating in offices in Turin, Milan, Florence, Ancona, Rome (2), Naples, Catanzaro, Palermo, with an additional 11 private nurseries operating by special agreement in Turin, Padua (2), Trento, Bologna and Rome (5), Caltanissetta. These facilities offer different time bands for children, in order to meet the needs of the staff, particularly those doing shift work. The location of the nursery is chosen based on assessments of the type of people employed by the company (average age of employees, number of children between 0 and 3 years, presence of female workers) and the workplace location (logistical difficulties, presence of a call centre, etc.).
The 9 company nurseries and 11 private nurseries offer any places not filled by colleagues to external companies (Poste Italiane, Banca Intesa, Assicurazioni Generali, etc.) which, in turn, provide TIM with places in their nurseries.
For the academic year 2016-2017, there are 20 nurseries and the company is the first in Italy to be trying out a preschool service at its offices on Via Oriolo Romano, Rome, which already has a nursery.
