Sopra Steria’s commitment to learning impact recognised by LIFT certification

LIFT certification - Sopra Steria

EFMD is pleased to announce that Sopra Steria France has gone through its Learning Impact for Today and Tomorrow (LIFT) review and will receive the LIFT certification.

LIFT is an EFMD certification that was created in 2022 using a design thinking approach with inputs from over 30 organisations, including CLIP-accredited learning functions and EQUIS-accredited business schools. In its pilot phase this year, Sopra Steria is the first to complete this process.

Sopra Steria is a tech leader recognised for its consulting, digital services and software development. The company’s mission is to guide its customers, partners and employees towards bold choices by leveraging digital technology to build a positive future for all.

“Sopra Steria found the LIFT a good way to take a step back with our stakeholders and look at how our learning was delivering impact to the organisation, our learners and society at large. It allows us to receive an outside-in validation on what we do well, have already achieved, as well as insights for our continuous improvement” – Frederic Godard, Head of the Sopra Steria Academy.

“Sopra Steria has been an ideal pilot in how they have engaged their stakeholders in critical conversations through LIFT to take stock of how learning contributes to the organisation’s ambition of being a technology reference company that is committed to a sustainable world and how learning can contribute even more” – Steven Smith, EFMD LIFT Lead

We are still looking for candidate learning functions to pilot the LIFT in 2023. To find out more, please contact Steven Smith or Shanshan Ge.
