Faurecia University Accredited by CLIP

Congratulation to Faurecia University (FU) for having gone successfully through the Corporate Learning Improvement Process (CLIP).

CLIP is a unique accredited run by EFMD that focuses on identifying the key factors that determine quality in the design and functioning of corporate universities and learning organisations. The process demonstrated once again its power to trigger continuous development and improvement of the corporate learning function supported by peers. We are delighted that FU has been granted the 5-year accreditation.

Jean-Pierre Sounillac, Executive Vice President Human Resources of Faurecia declared: “Starting in 2015, Faurecia undertook a major transformation of its business and made training a strategic driver for its employees. We are very proud to receive this world leading accreditation. It recognizes the Faurecia University as a major cornerstone of our cultural, business and digital transformation and our commitment to empowering our human capital.”

Under the leadership of CEO Patrick Koller, FU top management focuses on sharpening management’s awareness of underlying megatrends and the need for organisational and individual agility. This represents a key strength to successfully master imminent transformational change. In the past 2 years, the top 260 leaders of Faurecia have all participated in a series of Ignite programmes. 7000 additional managers and professionals are targeted to participate in a series of drive programmes.

Martin Moehrle, Associate Director, Corporate Services, who leads the CLIP process at EFMD, commented: “EFMD is very pleased that Faurecia University (FU) has successfully gone through CLIP accreditation. We were particularly impressed by the strong alignment of top management with the mission and role of FU, by the digital and social learning platforms and activities within Faurecia and by the reverse digital mentoring programme.”

So far, an EFMD peer review team has never come across such a rapid deployment of digital and social learning in any organisation. FU has developed an enterprise collaboration/social learning platform as well as a digital learning platform. The adoption of both platforms within the last 2 years is highly impressive and an excellent example of best practice. All ca. 30.000 managers and professionals in Faurecia are engaged in either or both platforms. This is a result of smart design, good analytics and marketing, and full integration with business needs.

Martin Moehrle, Associate Director, Corporate Services, highlighted: “We were extremely impressed by the professionalism and engagement of the FU team and by the positive brand image of FU. We congratulate FU on this achievement and look forward to their contribution to the CLIP community.

Faurecia University joins the community of CLIP accredited organisations which also includes:

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.
