Arval renews Talent Care Programme for 2019
Arval is to run its Talent Care Programme again in 2019, building on from the lessons learnt from the past year.
The programme launched in 2018 with the aim of developing a pool of “talents” to build its future leaders who will help power growth.
The firm said its first graduating class shows the success of the programme. Over the one-year course, 40 Arval employees, aged between 27 and 45, were chosen by a committee for their high performance and leadership potential, to engage in an international programme specifically designed around their professional and personal development needs.
Each talent was assigned a Mentor among the Arval Senior Management Team who helped design their personal development plan, backed up by a series of creative and innovation-focused workshops. This included meeting with the leaders of start-ups whose businesses directly challenge Arval to inspire talent to develop dynamic thinking and place innovation at the heart of their work.
The programme will run again for 2019, enhanced by the establishment of an Arval Talent Care Programme Alumni, with talents from previous courses meeting with current talents to give birth to an international community, foster peer-mentoring and promote internal mobility.
Bernard Blanco, Arval HR director, commented: “Arval’s Talent Care Journey is not about a destination but about a team experience and a personal and company development adventure.”
