Workforce and diversity

A growing Group with talented People



The human capital of the company

People are the key element of Brembo's success, its most precious strategic asset that allows the Group to innovate and achieve increasingly challenging goals

Brembo pays particular attention to human capital, strongly believing that it is people’s knowledge and skills that determine the real competitive advantage that is useful for anticipating and overcoming challenges in an evolving, complex and strongly dynamic context, influenced by the digital and the technological innovation. 

Therefore, in line with its strategic Pillars (Global, Digital, Cool), Brembo promotes the growth, development and continual enhancement of skills. Today, more than 13,000 employees work for Brembo every day with dedication and passion. 

Brembo People are over 15,000.




Diversity is a strength for a global Company like Brembo, which operates and is constantly confronted with very diverse situations from the economic and cultural point of view. With a “zero-toleranceapproach towards any form of discrimination, every day Brembo is committed to promoting an inclusive environment capable of supporting sense of belonging. It encourages its People to feel they have a leading role in the Group’s success, fostering a culture of respect for diversity and inclusion and fully respecting the points of view, individualities and special qualities of each person. Indeed, Brembo is aware that discrimination harms the wellbeing of any discriminated person. 

For Brembo, ensuring a fair and inclusive work environment is an essential tool for ensuring there are no episodes of human rights infringements. In this regard, with reference to the protection of diversity and respect for people and workers’ human rights, Brembo continues to avail of — in addition to the provisions also set out in the Group’s Code of Ethics —, the Code of Basic Working Conditions, the Brembo’s Modern Slavery Statement and the Policy on Non Discrimination and Diversity. In particular, through the latter Brembo set out the guidelines on how to promote the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) within the Group and disseminate a solid DEI culture. The Policy is also accompanied by the Brembo Charter on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (Brembo DEI Charter) which promotes virtuous behaviour to be put into practice at work on a daily basis in order to be more inclusive and respectful of the diversities within the Group. These documents reflect and represent the Group’s universal beliefs and the foundations of the employer-worker relationship. In detail, they confirm and establish rules of conduct regarding child labour, forced labour, human trafficking, the right to work, freedom of association and collective bargaining; harassment and discrimination, health and safety, working hours, remuneration, corruption, environment and sustainability, social commitment and local communities. 

In order to monitor the effective implementation and respect of the Code of Basic Working Conditions and the Policy on Non Discrimination and Diversity, the institutional Whistleblowing channel, updated in 2023 and managed by the Supervisory Committee, as well as another specific mechanism to gather any reports on behaviour that does not comply with company policies are used.



People and their skills are the main pillar for the deployment of the company strategy. In fact, the strengthening of skills and the promotion of talent are the primary levers of the development of each employee and at the same time an enabling factor for the strategy that can anticipate and satisfy the business-related demands and create the Group’s identity culture. 

In 2023, Brembo confirmed its commitment to continuing with important investment in the training offer and launching various training initiatives with an increasingly inclusive and global approach in favour of transversal enrichment and greater collaboration between Group Companies’ employees and instrumental to the achievement of the strategic objectives. 

To ensure an effective management of training activities, Brembo avails of a specific Group procedure that defines the methods and organises the various phases of the process, starting with identifying the annual training needs of the corporate population, through a structured process for identifying and analysing training needs. The training scheme for individual employees is accompanied by other initiatives for accessing training such as those of an institutional nature, which meet compliance or legislative requirements, delivered face-to-face or online through an e-learning platform, ad hoc training projects dedicated to GCF/GBU teams and course self-application. In terms of self-development, Brembo employees can in fact also access training courses — on a remote or e-learning basis — by self-enrolment authorised by their direct manager.
