Anne-Caroline Ladet, International Mobility Manager
Tell us about international mobility at Rhodia.
Rhodia declines international mobility under 3 programs:
- short missions for experienced employees with a strong expertise (computing, engineering, R&D, finance…). The goal: to transfer skills & technical knowledge to local teams within the framework of new projects’ launching, factory’s construction, etc…
-“opportunity+” missions, based on talents’ development, for young potentials having less than 7 years of experience. The goal: to allow them to evolve within the Group & acquire new skills, while giving their career an international dimension. These missions go from 18 months to 5 years.
-expatriation, proposed on key management positions, concerns mainly middle-career employees. The goal: spread a managerial know-how.
What is your role?
Within the globalization & growth strategy context of the Group, as for the emerging countries, a strong dynamichas been given in 2010: 60% of our “international” employees have been replaced.
The process is simple: the “international” employees are identified by the hierarchy through development & succession plans; we act then like a shared services plateform: we handle their file with the HR support to accompanythem in their procedures when they leave, move and settle in.
