Global Procurement periodically organizes meetings and discussions with vendors: Supplier Days take place in the countries where Enel operates, with the purpose to share future business challenges, ongoing transformations and programs dedicated to the relationship between Enel and its suppliers.
Among the most recent appointments, the Supplier Day Brazil, held in Rio de Janeiro (April 26-27), in Madrid (June 6) and in Rome on June 27. Over 1000 suppliers have attended the meetings to date. Seven additional Supplier Days are scheduled for 2018 in South America, Romania, Russia and the United States.
Sharing, relating, comparing and exchanging mutual experiences: at the base of each Supplier Day there is the desire to create a direct and tangible communication channel between Enel and its suppliers. An intent that will not stop at the physical event, but rather is the basis for the creation of new relationship modes, such as the new area on the Global Procurement website in which each supplier can dialogue with Procurement through a simple online tool.
In 2018, there are many innovations to recount: from the new processes for qualification and tender management to programs that promote health and safety initiatives - essential elements for an effective professional relationship, in which all the players are protected.
Salvatore Bernabei, Director of the Global Procurement of the Enel Group, was in charge of introducing Enel’s strategy in the current scenario, in which the values of innovation for the creation of sustainable value in the long term are key drivers. His speech managed to excite and inspire, communicating a vision that is not just connected to business opportunities but also to the awareness of having undertaken a SHARED path of promising growth for civil society and future generations alike.

How does the energy of the future look like?
This was the question that opened the Enel’s event dedicated to all our suppliers. Enel’s representatives and colleagues met with our partners with whom we develop our business in Romania. The all-encompassing purpose of the conference was to foster a two-way open dialogue on the lines our Group will follow in the future in what concerns the Procurement strategy and process. It has been a full day, during which the participants exchanged information and got their questions answered or even better, got new ideas to help improve their work.
Almost 200 participants gathered in the conference room at Ramada Parc, in the north of the capital where Enel also displayed 2 electric cars and an electrical charging station.
Our Country Manager, Georgios Stassis opened the talks thanking the partners for their support to build every day a better, more sustainable economy and for implementing our innovative business solutions.
Salvatore Bernabei, Head of Global Procurement structured his speech on the importance of our company having a sustainable strategy and on the transformation of our way of working. Communication is part of the Procurement Manifesto and we need to carefully listen to our suppliers in order to grow together.
Our Safety department represented by Massimo Bazzani and Giovanni Iavarone reminded participants that Safety is a priority and we continuously invest in trainings and courses that contribute to the Safety culture in our Group. One practical example was the corner dedicated to the first VR simulator for training future specialists at E-distribution. The participants were invited to strap in and experience the technology that recreates the reality in a safe and immersive environment with real situations and instruments that allowed them to interact with the surroundings in real-life situations with the help of the special equipment.
Alessio Menegazzo, Head of Sustainability and Institutional Affairs focused also on the sustainability and innovation of our business but also on diversity when discussing about stakeholders.
Marius Chiriac, Head of Enel X Romania introduced some ideas about Enel X, among which services aiming at optimizing every aspect of the society: industries, mobility, homes and cities. Everything has to become smart and help communities live in a better world with the help of innovative, state-of-the art technologies and platform solutions. The focus was on e-mobility and the recharging infrastructure in Romania.
The moderator of the event was Alessandra Stoicescu, a well-known TV anchor who, at the end of the event invited participants to ask questions in a direct dialogue with Enel’s management present at the event.
The day concluded with a series of workshops and one-to one-talks with Enel partners on different issues and themes which helped both our colleagues and partners to better understand the working procedures and discover new business opportunities.
