At Safran, training means progress!

Human resources
"I don't have time, I have other priorities." "I don't know who to turn to." "We'll see later!" We all have good excuses to postpone our training courses. However, training is essential for career development! Spotlight on two Safran training experts: Etienne Delpit, acting Director Global Learning of Safran University, and Jean-Roch Houllier, head of training.

How important is training at Safran?

Let's start from a well-known and recognized premise: training throughout one's career is essential for anyone who wants to evolve. The rapid transformation of professions, the constant evolution of skills, and the recurrent appearance of new tools are all good reasons to continuously train in one's field and line of business.
Aware of the generational, technological, and organizational challenges, Safran innovates and places training at the heart of the career development of its teams. As an example, we recently launched training courses to support technological projects in the field of decarbonization and digital transformation.

Who is concerned? Is it possible to train in a field other than one's own?

All Safran employees are concerned, everywhere in the world!
The Group offers a wide range of training programs: you can perfect your skills in your current job, or discover a new one if you want to give your career a new boost. Last year, for example, Safran University set up a program to retrain employees for careers in embedded software: many employees with very different profiles were trained in these professions, which were totally unknown to some. Furthermore, we feel that everyone has knowledge and can pass on their know-how and share their expertise. This way, each employee can, in the course of their career, participate in the transmission of knowledge by creating training content or even becoming a trainer!

How does it work in practice?

To each their own! The course is offered in a variety of ways, and each student can choose the option that suits them: online on the computer, on the Safran University campus, or in one of its branches around the world, or a combination of the two options.

Training involving a trainer requires the manager's approval. In addition, other training courses are freely available to all employees via the Group's various digital platforms, comprising thousands of modules on a wide variety of topics (digital transformation, languages, etc.). Everyone can thus train independently and at their own pace.
On average, each Group employee received 21 hours of training in 2021, and we are aiming for 26 hours by 2025. Training is a key issue for Safran, which has made it one of its commitments in its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.

Are Safran training courses recognized and lead to a diploma?

Of course! Recognition varies: badges, certificates, diplomas recognized both internally and externally. Safran is committed to enhancing the skills of its employees.

Training at Safran in three words?

Innovative, enriching and impactful!
