Objective Action

To forge a common perception of and to offer an holistic understanding of HELPE Group's range of activities, to strengthen our employees' skills and competencies in sectors that are critical for the Group, to reinforce a unified Group culture and to develop the professional "Attributes" that are important for the Group.

 

Target Audience

The participants are more than 400 employees from all of the Group's companies, who hold degrees from Higher Educational Institutions, regardless of their age or their position in the organizational chart.

 

Duration

The Program started in March 2013, while the duration of all the program's cycles is approximately 4 years.


Description

The design of the EDGE program began in the summer of 2012 with the selection by tender of external partners (external speakers), selection and voluntary cooperation of company executives (internal speakers), preparation of training material and technical infrastructure (training rooms of HELPE Academy).

The EDGE program, which began to be implemented in March 2013, is designed to meet the training needs of the Group's employees through three educational pillars:

1. Introduction to the HELPE Group.
2. Development of Technical Skills.
3. Development of Managerial Competencies.

The total duration of the Program is 100 training hours per employee. The innovative component of the program and the difference with other similar programs is that most of the program implemented by executives of the company and not by external partners.
