Interns, work-study students and employees all receive regular training in the EDF Group. And this is not about to change: as specialisms evolve, so do employees, who hold several jobs during their working life.
Did you know that in 2020, over 4 million hours of training were delivered by the EDF Group in France?
Over the course of their working lives, our 165,000 employees experience change: they themselves change jobs, or a job evolves, or people switch from one subsidiary to another, or one division to another in the Group... there are over 230 occupations that change as both context and technology evolve.
For this reason, we provide our employees with training and professional development, whatever their age and their time in the company. Skills development is a strategic asset in supporting career paths, fostering social advancement, anticipating job changes, etc.
This mobility can take the form of role-to-role mobility (I am changing my occupation), geographical mobility (I am changing my work location) and/or it can involve moving to a different company in the Group (EDF SA, ENEDIS, FRAMATOME, DALKIA, etc.). Or it can combine all three!
Throughout your career in the Group, EDF is by your side to develop your skills and support your mobility choices. In short, we give you all the tools you need to take control of your career path.
More than simply a personal opportunity for employees, role-to-role mobility is a valuable tool in our understanding of the future energy sector and our preparations for the jobs of tomorrow.
In October 2021, EDF launched a consultation with its employees on the topic of "Let's talk about training", to learn about their experiences as "the trained", in relation to 5 topics: the search for training, the timing of training, training for career development, arrangements for on-site or remote learning, I am a manager and support my teams.
The objective of "Let's talk about training" is to simplify the training of all employees by continuing the current transformation that is taking place in several areas: digital technology and the emergence of new systems fast-tracked by the health crisis, which are helping us plan ahead for the future energy sector and prepare the jobs of tomorrow.
