Believe supports its hyper growth and international development  through targeted coaching for its employees

To on-board, develop and retain its teams, the company is increasingly focused on an  ambitious policy of learning and individual and group coaching. And it’s paying off.

Project background

Believe has experienced hyper growth for several years now, supported by massive  recruitment campaigns. Highly focused on local development in each of its markets around  the world, the company is increasingly moving towards an international group model; as such,  its training and cultural adaption policy needs to be strengthened

In 2020, the company recruited an average of 60 new employees every month around the  world. Consequently, training and coaching have become important tools to ensure the  integration and cohesion of multicultural teams which are constantly expanding. 

This fundamental core of Believe’s corporate culture is managed by the People department  with the Learning & Development team which develops and rolls out various training and skills  development tools and platforms. Renowned for its expertise and ability to innovate, Believe  is committed to sharing its knowledge with all its employees by providing targeted support for  lifelong learning.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had an impact on Believe’s organisational model (remote working,  increasingly digital communications), but not on its long-term future. The company has also  had to adapt to the issue of employees’ work-life balance, in response to their changing needs. 

In light of the challenges of its hyper growth and international development, the 4 priorities  of Believe’s Learning & Development policy are as follows: 

  • Establishing on-boarding which is universal in its processes and objectives but which  can be customised for every individual;
  • Strengthening and further developing employee expertise;
  • Improving managers’ skills;
  • Retaining talent.

MoovOne coaching

For Believe, digital coaching is the ideal tool with which to respond to these challenges.  Coaching provides support for employees around the world, no matter what their needs, with  a platform which centralises and measures results. 

MoovOne’s solution has made it possible for Believe to establish comprehensive and  measurable coaching programmes for the entire group which can be customised individually. This programme has been created for Believe’s managers (some 300 employees) and begins  with 360° feedback and a debrief session to identify priority objectives. The process continues  

with 4 individual digital coaching sessions with a coach chosen by the participant. In parallel, various “traditional” thematic training modules are made available (theory and case  studies). Every month, voluntary thematic co-development sessions are also provided for  managers to encourage collective intelligence

In total, more than 170 employees have been coached since this programme was rolled out  in September 2020. 

The next step for Believe? Further developing opportunities for training, including mentoring  and co-development, which are particularly popular with employees.
