let’s talk about them! Meet Florence,
HR Manager My name is Florence, I’m 45 years old.
I’m the Human Resources Manager at an industrial facility
in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department.– Mr Blanchard.
– How are you?– And yourself?
– I’m well.I trained as a corporate lawyer. But what I was drawn to
was not corporate law, but corporate life. That’s why I shifted my focus
towards a profession in HR.– Please, take a seat.The morning may start
with a recruitment interview for a job vacancy that needs to be filled, then I may have to lead a team meeting
in one of the departments if there is a HR project in the works,
I have to go and promote it and tell the teams about
what we want to set up and try to get their support for the project. There’s also the labor relations aspect, which is an important part
of the site’s HR function. There, the HR Manager
works with the site director and plays a frontline role
in labor relations matters with the social partners,
the staff representatives.– Hello Nicolas.To understand the operational challenges,
we provide a support service. We get in contact and discuss
matters in the departments, directly with the employees
or in department meetings. The contact can be very informal, talking with the people
you run into around the plant, trying to gauge the staff’s general mood
and find out what concerns people have.– I was planning to come and see you
in the control room.I find that Arkema’s values reflect my own. If I had to name two of those values,
I would say solidarity and plainness. Where I see solidarity,
is in the teamwork. Whether in my own team
or the teams on the ground. As for plainness, that can be seen
in the relationships that I forge with people.– Can I take back the signature book?– Thanks, see you later.
