Competency development


Our company must not only maintain its competences in its traditional activities but also develop new competences within the future-oriented and growth domains of the company. This presupposes the identification of the key functions and profiles, the recruitment of new talent and the motivation and retention of the best performing employees.

Highlight: a cross-departmental "People Forum"

In 2017, the implementation of the People Forum contributed to facilitating the internal mobility of management, by identifying opportunities and profiles across departments, as well as poor performances and paths to collective improvements. This internal EDF Luminus body, composed of nine members representing the various departments and five members of the Human Resources departments, meets regularly.

The number of training hours dropped slightly. The number of training hours per employee remained high (more than 30 hours per year).

The implementation of the ‘Power2You’ project in particular mobilised several thousand hours, enabling the involved employees to reflect on the organisation of work in their team.

Internal promotion degree remains high: 57%

At EDF Luminus, most vacant posts are published on the company intranet for two weeks before being advertised externally.

The line manager of an employee selected to fill a vacant post cannot oppose the transfer. Only the transitional periods, up to a maximum of three months, can be discussed.


This policy, along with the individual training discussed each year with the direct manager, contributed to a high rate of internal promotion.


In 2017, 57% of published posts were filled internally. 41 people thus developed their perspectives by changing position.
