Integration through work-based learning

Work-based learning: a powerful lever for integration

Work-based learning and traineeship give individuals from many different backgrounds opportunities to apply their training with a hands-on professional project. These programs introduce young people to the working world and give adults the prospect of changing career paths. 

A standardized program

ENGIE recruits trainees from every educational level (vocational high school to Master’s students) for business and cross-disciplinary positions. This includes all of its energy businesses (electricity, natural gas, energy services) and all Group subsidiaries.

Recruiting events are organized through local campaigns, French employment agencies, newspapers and the Web in order to reach a wide public. In 2012, the Group’s partnership with Mozaik HR – a non-profit employment agency that promotes equal opportunity – enabled it to recruit 16 trainees from diverse backgrounds in Île-de-France.

In Belgium, the Group subsidiary Fabricom began piloting work-based learning programs for technical profiles in 2012. Conducted in partnership with official technical training centers, the initiative helped recruit 12 trainees.
