For the second year in a row, Korian has honoured its teams to highlight the professional careers that enable everyone to progress in the company, in all areas. In 2018, nearly 350 employees in France embarked on a qualifying training program.
On November 22nd, Korian gathered 150 graduates in Paris, specifically accompanied by a VAE: school directors with a Master's degree in the Korian Campus program, realized in partnership with INSEEC, hotel service agents who became medical assistants thanks to specific support. The event also welcomed doctors and nurses who have obtained a University Diploma.
The engagement and support of Korian's teams in the development of VAE diplomas results in a success rate that is significantly higher than the national average. It is 57% for becoming a health care assistant (national average: 24%) and 90% for other diplomas (animators, hotel managers and administrative managers) while the national average is 63%.
On the basis of these results, Korian will launch an information campaign on VAE for life support workers and hotel service agents at the beginning of 2019, with the aim of creating health care assistant positions in all employment areas.
Each year, Korian recruits 3 500 people on full-time job, mainly in five healthcare and hotel sectors. About one third of these persons are health care assistants and the others are nurses, health care managers, hotel service agents and cooks. The formation plan, to which is added VAE training, amounts to more than 2% of the gross payroll.
Korian is accelerating the deployment of its training policy in response to its recruitment needs:
• In 2018, more than 100 employees graduated through the VAE
• Nearly 350 employees engaged in a qualifying training program
• Early 2019, continuation of the VAE system and strengthening of the support for our health care assistants with expecting a professional evolution.
"Korian has made the training of its employees one of its priorities and has been engaged for more than 15 years, with the Korian Academy, in a proactive approach. Training is an essential lever to take better care of our patients and residents and to evolve in the company. We have both the organization and expertise in this field and positions to be offered in our institutions. This process of upgrading skills and specialisation in the professions of the elderly, which is possible at any time in the professional career, is extremely beneficial from a personal point of view and allows people to achieve their full potential in a sustainable job" says Sophie Boissard, Chief Executive Officer of the Korian Group.
