Developing skills and enhancing employability
The ALTEN Group is committed to ensuring that each employee possesses the necessary means to master his/her craft, develop his/her employability and adapt to constant advances in technology.
Dedicated structures, including an internal university, and training modules tailored to each type of business function have been set up to allow everyone to enhance their skills.
ALTEN develops processes to identify skills and expectations so as to ensure that its projects closely match its employees’ desires.
The ALTEN HR process is based on three types of interview: an annual assessment, follow-up interviews and career interviews.
This dynamic, cross departmental and transnational career management ensures the constant evolution, both horizontally and vertically, of the group’s employees working in the managerial and technical fields, opening up new prospects for their professional development.
ALTEN’s workforce has talent
ALTEN has created a programme supporting the personal passions and initiatives of its employees in the sporting, humanitarian, scientific and cultural arenas. This programme aims to promote the wealth and diversity of the human tapestry formed by the group’s teams. The projects supported by the group are reported on via the ALTEN blog.
Diversity and Equal Opportunities
In ALTEN, diversity nurtures the Group’s values and its human resources policy.
A process for managing the career paths of employees known as “seniors” has been established, based on career counselling, training, and the transfer of expertise to young graduates.
ALTEN encourages cultural diversity: 83 nationalities are represented in the group’s workforce, which is a true melting pot of skills and personalities.
Our internal policy relative to the recruitment and job retention for employees with disabilities and links with the sheltered corporate sectors (ESAT/EA) have been gradually strengthened. A programme of awareness of and changing attitudes to disability is deployed in order to firmly embed good practices within the Group’s teams.
Security and Well-being at work
ALTEN watches over the quality of life at work for all its employees by providing a healthy, safe and stimulating environment.
The Group deploys a comprehensive approach to preserving and protecting the health and safety of its employees. This strategy is based on risk prevention, training and awareness, the establishment of dedicated facilities and a regulatory watchdog service.
The renewal of the group’s MASE and CEFRI certifications demonstrates the efforts made and successes achieved through the procedures implemented by ALTEN’s health and safety management system.
An agreement for the prevention of stress was signed between Senior Management and the Trade Unions in October 2010. In this respect, nearly 300 employees have been trained in stress management since 2011.
