Compétences et carrièresSKILLS AND CAREERS

The talents of our employees are essential for our future and at the heart of the priorities of our strategic plan “Verescence 2022”. We help build and develop them by stepping up our training efforts and placing them more and more in “real-life” situations through internal and international mobility programs.



In 2018, 60% of the workforce received training. Already a high level, but one we want to increase even further by 2022. To meet this goal, we have decided to introduce a training portal in 2020 accessible to all, with construction already underway.

We are also spearheading unique training centers for bottles, with the Glass and Finishing School in France. Each year, we continue to improve the quality and diversity of our training, which represents 9,736 hours of training in 2018. Our sectoral know-how is a competitive advantage and we must take into account technological changes in our traditional businesses.

Finally, our site in Spain has been approved as a professional training organization by the government and takes on high school students to support their path to professionalization. This is an excellent example of how we work alongside our territories.

We want to offer even greater career visibility by deploying career programs at all our sites and the appropriate training resources.

Our international scope offers great career opportunities abroad that we choose to offer our employees as a priority. Twenty expatriates are currently able to contribute to a form of mutual acculturation at our sites to increase our collective intelligence.

Objective for 2019: finalization of our global job exchange project. A key component of our strategy is to promote internal promotion. For example, in 2018, more than 70% of vacant positions were filled through internal transfers or promotions.

Every employee at Verescence should be able to advance according to their talents. From the moment they’re hired, we help them develop their skills. For example, several employees hired as qualified operators have become engineers thanks to training funded by Verescence.
