Our vision of learning
We envision a center of excellence—both physical and digital—where all talents come together and share Vallourec culture and where the group’s standards are defined with our customers. We wish to promote a culture of learning that makes it possible to anticipate future skills, share, and enhance the excellence of our employees’ expertise via continuing education throughout their careers.
Vallourec University: a custom training offer
The group’s main continuing education and professional development organization, the university offers advanced training courses all over the world—on site, at the group’s headquarters, or via e-learning—to all of our employees in order to help them acquire or strengthen their managerial and technical skills. It also aims as well to share and reinforce our group’s unique culture by bringing Vallourec’s values to life and exemplifying the behaviors expected from employees. Vallourec University provides a solid base for the definition of the group’s strategy and a vector for its implementation.
The training courses are connected to the strategic goals of the group, the regions and the various teams. The primary goal is to develop a competitive advantage in our markets.
Furthermore, Vallourec University is developing more and more training courses specific to different business lines, which enables employees to customize their professional development.
Through its international presence and the diversity of its occupations, Vallourec is able to offer its employees the most pertinent career developments—ones where their personal and professional expectations intersect. Our group’s greatest strength is listening to our employees’ aspirations so as to help them thrive and to enrich their professional lives.
For example, the “Expert Career” program provides bridges between management responsibilities and technical expert responsibilities. Gaining managerial and technical skills and experiences ultimately benefits both the employee and the group. In concrete terms, this desire involves true cross-disciplinary mobility, from one job to another, and numerous opportunities to work abroad.
