DEVELOPING THE POTENTIAL OF OUR EMPLOYEES
Savencia considers long-term internships and apprenticeship as effective levers for the integration of future employees.
Apprenticeship contracts are particularly well suited to help these future graduates take their first steps into the professional world.
In 2018, 63 young people did their apprenticeship at Elle & Vire. And at Savencia Produits Laitiers France, the coaching work carried out by managers and HR teams among the 28 trainees and apprentices welcomed in 2018 was awarded with the Happy Trainees label.
