Career Development

 

 

At Euler Hermes we believe everyone has the potential to be better! We have developed a fair, transparent and standardized methodology for supporting you so that you can succeed at every stage of your career.

Onboarding


We offer our employees a variety of on boarding programs to ensure a successful and rewarding career.
 

First weeks at Euler Hermes

 
Onboarding will differ whether you are a senior manager or a graduate. But regardless of your experience the responsibility to drive your career is yours from the very beginning. Be demanding and pro-active.
 
A few suggestions:
 
  • Agree with your manager on a personalized induction plan (e.g. meetings with colleagues from other departments, clients, interaction with people from group/regions, spare time to read documents, articles, etc.).
  • Don’t stop asking (use a list and note down all questions to share with your manager during your weekly meetings).
  • Provide your manager with a summary “the view of an external” where you collect the points that you deem surprising, good or needing to improve.

 

The first few months are precious – make the best use of it!

Learning & development

 
Personalized learning programs and development plans are vital to realize our employees’ full potential.
 
Personalized Reviews and Assessment
 
Each year, HR directors together with the Management Team of each Euler Hermes Business Unit conduct in depth talent review in order to:
 
  • Identify and grow successors for multiple positions within the organization
  • Identify and assess the company’s high potential employees
  • Formulate individualized development plans

 

Each employee is responsible for her/his own development plan which is defined to take into account the employee’s interests, strengths and areas of improvement within the context of business needs. Also, each employee benefits from the support of their manager and their HR business partner.


Development plans can be implemented through the following means:
 
  • On-the-job actions: specific projects, international assignments…
  • People: exposure to regional and global leaders, role models, peer learning…
  • Technical training: risk underwriting, marketing, sales, finance, IT...
  • Soft skills training: communication, leadership, change management, diversity…
