Telecom Italia (TIM) has signed an agreement with the Italian Ministry of Labour and trade unions to hire 600 new workers in the period 2019-2020, up from the 500 new hires that were originally envisaged, following a request from industry and labour minister Luigi Di Maio. The deal comes under the terms of the 'Expansion Contract' model (Law 58/2019) introduced this year by Italy's government to support technological development in companies with over 1,000 employees, and also includes a commitment to make significant investments in the training and reskilling of TIM's employees.
