a new style of mangement
Orange Campus aims to develop managers' skills and to renew the Group's management culture by implementing a new style of management. The Orange way of training is based on sharing experiences, interaction and cooperation, to develop a common knowledge base and set of best practices for all Group managers. Orange Campus, which emphasises openness, is a genuine forum for encounters and exchanges. It unites the entire management community while strengthening ties and the feeling of belonging to the Group.
management development programmes
Orange Campus offers close to 60 management development programmes, all of them based on 3 principles:
- diversity: an opportunity for people at different levels of management to work together in shared programmes (35 programmes, more than half of the catalogue);
- a wide variety of programmes for managers in different activities and from all of the Group's countries (24 international programmes); the programme content is identical for all participants in order to ensure that they share the same values and management culture;
- flexibility: 35% of the catalogue is tailored to support managers as they deal with the specific challenges of their businesses and teams.
3 ranges of programmes
The programmes are divided into 3 ranges:
- the dedicated management pathways: the basics of management, to prepare managers to take on new responsibilities (duration: 3 to 8 days over a year);
- collective development programmes: made-to-measure programmes to help executives mobilise and develop their teams - "shared challenges" (average duration: 5 days);
- individual development modules to improve management practices and skills (average duration: 1 to 2 days).
The Orange Campus programmes are held on three international sites located in Paris, Serock (Poland) and Madrid, as well as dedicated sites in Bordeaux, Marseille, Nancy and Rennes. 2,000 of the 10,000 managers trained are from outside France, and the year's trainees originate from 25 different countries, including Botswana, Dominican Republic, France, Madagascar, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Senegal, Slovakia and Spain. Orange Campus is set to continue its international growth, with the upcoming opening of a new site in Africa.
