At December 31, 2016 the Enel Group had 62,080 employees, of whom 51% were in companies based in Italy and 49% abroad. The balance between the numbers at the start and end of the year shows a fall of around 5,800, due mainly to the removal from the scope of Slovenské elektrárne. New hires, totaling 3,360, occurred in Italy for 34%, while the remaining 66% were spread across other countries. The percentage of women in the workforce remained stable compared to 2015.
