Developing talent: at the core of Air Liquide’s business
“Talent” is more than just a set of skills. Air Liquide’s talents are its people who - through their abilities, passion and efforts - bring success to the Group. Meeting our customers expectations in 80 countries and across a wide range of activities, requires diversity of talents and a long-term approach that ensures we have the right skills in the right place at the right time.
At Air Liquide, we believe in each person and his or her own talent. Our goal is to help you develop that talent so as to increase company performance. Employees have an important role to play in this and must be proactive in their career development. To progress, they need to seize opportunities, first at site level or beyond, thanks to a long-standing culture of functional and geographical mobility.
At the core of the company’s development are the commitment and constant inventiveness of its people
Managers support employees through a daily relationship based on listening and proximity and formalize their support during the annual performance appraisal interview.
HR managers play a more global, transversal role in helping employees think about the direction they want to take, for example through structured career interviews held every 3 to 5 years.
