There are few business sectors that have not been impacted by Covid 19. Lockdowns, company personnel affected, not being able to meet clients face to face, etc. are some of the many factors that have been disrupting business operations and organizations for more than a year now.
The APEM and IDEC Groups have managed to hold their own in this unprecedented context. "We adapted very quickly, by changing our way of working and adopting new tools. The Group's robustness and our employees' commitment gave us solid foundations for implementing these changes," explains Hervé Jeanniard, APEM's HR Director.
Moreover, since the start of the pandemic, APEM and IDEC EMEA have pursued their policy of maintaining stable employment conditions and developing their workforce "by replacing employees who retire, continuing to implement succession plans for critical or hard-to-fill positions, and by maintaining career development and training plans," he adds. It is becoming more and more difficult to find people with the appropriate skills in certain trades, but our clients can rest assured that we are doing everything possible in terms of recruitment and training to ensure the long-term viability of our specific vertical integration business model.
The fact that we are hiring skilled personnel and investing in their careers – even in the context of the current crisis – reflects our forward-looking strategy and belief in the future, as well as our wish to provide the best possible technical solutions for our clients, in terms of quality and innovation.
