Solco was founded in 1989 and was one of the first employment agencies recognized by the Italian Ministry of Labour for recruitment, selection and outplacement activities.
Since 2000 we have expanded our range of services with professional training, specialized training and technical assistance.
In 2018, together with 6 other companies, we created the Consortium, a wide ecosystem of services, with a high level of expertise in the field of Knowledge.

Our goal is to bridge the skills gap outlined by our client companies and, at the same time, help people find the most appropriate job for their talent. In the development of support activities for companies, SOLCO promotes a so-called shared approach to change, based on the analysis of the innovation to be introduced, the necessary training to be planned and the personal skills to be developed.
We achieve these goals through innovative methods and tools, which we have developed over the years.
