The challenge: digitize training
Training has always been at the forefront of Fleury Michon’s efforts, since two thirds of the workforce are blue-collar workers with rapidly evolving jobs. This is recisely why it is essential to upskill employees and ensure their newly acquired skills help them in their job performance.
However, due to its history and mode of operating, only 2% of the company’s training offering was digital. In-person training has always been the preferred training method, namely because more than 3,000 Fleury Michon employees are located within a 30 km radius of their place of work and their jobs mainly consist of manual labor.
The outbreak of Covid-19 led the company to fast-track their digital transformation. Though initially planned for spring 2021, the digitization of their training offer quickly became crucial to limit in-person training sessions, as per the health guidelines in place—all while minimizing the impact on budgets. The company faced two challenges: adapt in-person training to an online learning format without affecting the quality, and implement a blended learning approach mixing both in-person training and online learning methods.
The solution: an enhanced training catalog with Talentsoft Content
In 2018, Fleury Michon adopted Talentsoft’s Learning, Recruiting, Talent Review, and Performance modules for its workforce after calling on Talentsoft to help digitize their HR processes.
Now it was time to go further and respond to the top priority of providing digital training options to their people. By the end of 2019, a new training catalog was available, offering a blended learning approach that combined both in-person and online training sessions. At the beginning of 2020, Fleury Michon fast-tracked its digital training transformation due to the Covid-19 crisis. The company immediately concentrated their efforts on implementing remote work and online collaboration tools to maintain an operational workforce.
The results: digital training increases by 25 percentage points
In only a few months, Fleury Michon saw e-learning grow from an initial 2% of the company’s completed learning courses, to 27%. With Talentsoft Content, employees now have access to a training catalog with over 100 learning courses tailored to their specific role and are motivated to continue learning and developing their skills.
