PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE

In the current challenging market, Technip’s Human Resources (HR) department stayed focused on developing and retaining talents, while implementing a restructuring plan.

It is in today’s increasingly challenging environment that we made the decision mid-way through the year to launch a restructuring plan, which aims to adapt our global workforce from 38,000 to 32,000 by the end of 2016. The restructuring plan is being carried out in close dialogue with our staff representatives and unions, according to legislation and collective agreements.

During this phase, we keep in mind at all times that our reputation, success and achievements are built on the quality of our people and their talents. Human Resources continually focus on anticipating the future workforce needs of Technip’s business.

DEVELOPING TALENTS

We continue to invest in the future. The skills that our workforce needs to have to deliver the projects of tomorrow are evolving and the battle for talents is fiercer than ever. Employees expect more and more career development opportunities, a personally enriching job and a good place to work.

We launched our HR 2017 plan in 2015. It is composed of three workstreams. The first addresses the need to embed learning more deeply in career development. The new Technip University, based on an innovative digital platform, was launched along with an expanded course catalog covering all fields, from technical expertise to individual development and management. To ensure the program is always relevant to the business and employees, Technip University has an updated governance model, where the Group Executive Committee serves as the Board of Governors, while the Advisory Board is comprised of senior executives.

The second workstream focuses on workforce planning and competency management. The challenging business environment accelerated this approach and resulted in the deployment of a new global planning system. Demand for internal mobility opportunities remained strong in 2015 as we adapted our workforce to meet the needs of project execution around the world.

The third and final workstream concerns life in the workplace. 2015 was dedicated principally to assessing and measuring current practices in terms of wellbeing and work-life balance. Technip was one of the first five companies to be certified Global Top Employers in 2015.

ENCOURAGING GENDER DIVERSITY

Building the future means Gender Diversity remains a key priority for Technip. We continued to execute our strategy and action plan in 2015. After becoming the first company in the energy industry to be certified to the EDGE (Economic Dividends for Gender Equality) standard in three countries in 2014, we reached a further important milestone in 2015 with eight countries now certified.

In today’s environment, Technip stays focused on developing and retaining its talents, further boosting our diversity in terms of backgrounds and cultures.
