Congratulations to Gas Natural Fenosa and PSA for having gone successfully through the CLIP re-accreditation process. The process demonstrated once again its power to trigger continuous development and improvement of the corporate learning function supported by peers.

“The re-accreditation process has allowed us to take stock of the work we have carried out over the last five years, linking our leadership and development model to the company strategy and recognizing the value of our Corporate University’s training model. We are certain that the steps that we have taken since our previous re-accreditation have been steps in the right direction”, said Carmen Fernandez Alvarez, Director of Culture and Talent at Gas Natural Fenosa.

“This accreditation enabled us to measure the progress made since 2012 but also to highlight areas to be improved. The professionalism of the peer reviewers, their experience about Learning, helped us to see in depth our progress points but also the way to get there“ commented Claudia Constant, Director PSA Corporate University.

The Corporate Learning Improvement Process (CLIP) is a unique accreditation run by EFMD that focuses on identifying the key factors that determine quality in the design and functioning of corporate universities and learning organisations.

PSA and Gas Natural Fenosa are part of the community of CLIP accredited organisations which also include:

The CLIP assessment process covers all the essential dimensions of the corporate university’s deployment within the company: the alignment of its mission and operational objectives with corporate strategy, the effectiveness of its governance and internal management systems, its ability to address key issues of concern to the business units, the programme design process, the overall coherence of the programme portfolio, the quality of delivery and the impact of the corporate university’s activities upon individual and organisational learning.

Internal self assessment against a set of rigorous standards drawn up by leading members of the corporate learning community is combined with external review by experienced peers.
