Virtual Campus, real learning

The Covid-19 crisis gave Air Liquide an opportunity to innovate with a new offer: Air Liquide University's Virtual Campus. This two-month learning event was aimed at making employees motivated and ready to start again once the health crisis is over. A series of webinars were organized on different content streams like Sales & Marketing, Management & Leadership, Innovation, Operational Excellence, etc.

Among feedbacks that were received: "It was a great experience and a very interesting way to leverage digital tools to enhance exchanges within the Group". "It is amazing to experience this learning opportunity in a fully digital environment. I look forward to the next session". "You helped a lot of people to gain knowledge and network. I know there is a huge effort there".
