Our induction program – helping you fit in quickly
Our induction programme aims to integrate new employees into Sopra Steria as smoothly as possible. This enables you to become fully operational quickly and easily.
Our dedicated Sopra Steria Academy is committed to offering you a tailor-made induction path, helping you feel part of the Group from day one.
On your arrival, you are welcomed by your new team and given training on our policies and methods using our common induction path: your Group welcome seminar is planned within your first three months. We are committed to ensuring a close local follow-up, including meetings, feedback sessions and regular exchanges with your management and peers.
It’s not just about providing information – your induction also involves building appropriate relationships, knowledge and understanding. A combination of housekeeping and education ensures that all new employees feel part of our organization. We want you to be confident in what you know about us, the services we offer, how we operate and how you are best able to represent us.
Working across the world
Our international clients expect Sopra Steria to consistently deliver high quality services from wherever we operate. That’s why our business processes and communities are designed to connect people across the organisation and why we implement integrated solutions within our global delivery model.
Throughout our history, our developments in new technology and new ways of working have kept Sopra Steria and our clients ahead of the competition. Tomorrow’s success will be the result of our innovations today. That is why we feel strongly about creating an environment where innovative ideas are appreciated and rewarded.
The development of our skills is key to the success of our Group. That is why we are committed to offering our people diverse career paths, according to their expectations and serving our needs, while maintaining a high level of motivation.
We recruit the right people, develop all staff to their full potential, expand both individual and team skills and encourage sharing of best practices. These objectives sit at the core of a strong Human Resources (HR) culture that’s shared through all the business units and countries and is deeply rooted in our values.
This HR dynamic is based on a close knowledge of each employee. It is guided by a comprehensive career management process. This includes key moments throughout the year, allowing the evaluation of skills and performance, as well as one-to-one exchanges about career path and the decisions concerning orientation and progress.
We strive to develop and preserve a flexible talent pool, while ensuring the development of key competencies. These talents are in line both with the market and with our corporate ambitions.
Sopra Steria Academy
At Sopra Steria, we believe that training and capitalising on our best practices (knowledge management) is critical to the development of the skills we need to support our Group development. It is also key to meeting the expectations of every single employee. The Sopra Steria Academy is fully dedicated to the career growth of each employee, regardless of their job stream.
So what is the Academy? It is our dedicated training organisation through which we integrate, train, and facilitate the sharing of our Group fundamentals and best practices. It offers our people training organized along job streams, as well as training modules designed to develop and reinforce individual or team skills. This training ranges from technical and functional, to managerial and behavioral.
We build ambitious training plans each year, embracing all types of training: internal, external, e-learning, mentoring, etc. This allows us to create individual training paths throughout an employee’s career with us and in conjunction with their manager.
Our intranet portal also provides access to all our Group fundamentals in terms of information on our strategy, organization, offers, methodology, business principles and practices. It makes a valuable contribution to the capitalization of know-how within our best practices community.
