Historically, Altran approached learning and development as a formal and mandatory undertaking with an emphasis on technical skills. However, in the current market, retention is a challenge. Therefore, Altran wanted to progress to a talent development strategy where learning is employee-centric and covers a more expansive range of subjects. Altran wanted to offer employees the opportunity to pursue professional qualifications and continue to sharpen their highly specialised engineering skills. To further enhance the learning opportunities, Altran wanted to locate all learning content in one easy to access, centralised location.
Altran is leveraging the Percipio learning experience platform to support a ‘flipped learning approach’ and develop in-house learning programmes that align with business objectives.
Percipio enables Altran to provide professional development opportunities. Employees are using Business Skills training to proactively pursue qualifications such as PRINCE2 and other project management certifications.
Altran is also using Technology and Developer content, particularly around software testing, to equip its engineers with the skill mastery required to innovate and evolve.
