The world is changing and tomorrow will not be like today. Having realised the need to adapt constantly and quickly to keep up, Egis has developed systems that aim to create momentum, to spread good practices, and to transfer knowledge. Through training, long courses at the Egis Campus university and business activity networks, and thanks to new sharing and communication tools, all initiatives complement or combine with each other.

Egis campus university
EGIS Campus implements long courses of high-level training in our company’s strategic areas. Created to support the Group’s growth and meet the challenges of the future, these courses are designed for long-term employees, for whom the group establishes career development plans. They aim to promote the understanding and anticipation of major market developments and key players, develop internal synergies and working methods to support innovative and comprehensive solutions.
Recently, we organised a training course for advanced project managers into which a specific module on sustainable development has been integrated. These project managers are undoubtedly key players in Egis’s business. The ultimate team leaders, they act as ambassadors for sustainable development vis-à-vis the teams and more generally with regard to all project stakeholders.
More recently Egis :
- organized a cycle for key international profiles
- continues the managerial training “Imagine manager demain”.
- organized an individual competency development campaign with 350 managers.
- organized a collective training actions, coaching, co-development.
Training for building careers
Egis offers its employees a range of training courses and workshops to support them in their careers. In a context of continuous market developments, Egis needs employees whose skills profiles are both broad and specialised, capable of supporting its international development, developing strong expertise in fields for which Egis is sought after, or who have multi-disciplinary skills in certain business activities. In 2014, training efforts were particularly focused on the adaptation of skills and fewer training courses, but which were longer and more targeted were provided. In parallel and in a context of considerable economic constraint, Egis continued to develop new forms of learning such as mentoring, tutoring and e-learning on very specific subjects.
- Development of our digital learning platform now available to all Egis employees worldwide (More than 20,000 connections to this platform were recorded in 2018 on more than 50 active courses – France and abroad).
- Strengthening of our mentoring policy through dedicated support on certain training courses. In addition, the use of work-based learning contracts.
- Continuation of Egis Campus University programmes for high potential candidates. (see Egis Campus paragraph above)
- Creation of an international training course on “managerial excellence”.
- Introduction of “Induction” courses for all new employees -whose content is focused on Egis’s values.
Creation of a range of “My Egis” development solutions for all managers. Initiation of an approach to develop a Change Management culture that supports for the human side of transformations.
Collaborative tools to speed up discussions and sharing
A collaborative portal called “My Egis” was created for employees to facilitate networking and develop discussions. With a customisable homepage, different areas are offered like technical communities, project sites and social networks. “My Egis” is also a group directory, providing access to the profiles of all employees (position, career, specialist areas, interests, etc.). Very useful when identifying a key skill in sustainable development. A specific community for CSR was established in 2015, for sharing all the news related to this theme (publications, best practices, etc.) and for asking related questions (forum)
Changing work tools and methods: Egis, promoting BIM
Convinced of the benefits of digital technology for its business, Egis has long invested in the field of BIM (Building Information Modelling), and more broadly in Digital Engineering; the digital model used to design and build a structure that better meets user needs, allows customers and stakeholders to enter into projects, take ownership of them, and interact with the teams in charge of the design. It meets their expectation of digital continuity throughout the life cycle of their facilities, from design to construction and operation.
It’s also a great opportunity to enhance our expertise, boost our business and transform our sector, in which we are very active, whether it be through the Plan de Transition Numérique du Bâtiment or the MINnD project for Infrastructure. Leading the way when it comes to research, training and promotion of BIM to its partners, Egis has developed a real expertise. In 2017, Egis notably contributed to the book on BIM, published by Eyrolles editions = “Research-Informed BIM – Modelling, Collaboration & Engineering”.
- In 2015, Egis has been awarded by the BIM d’Argent 2015 for the “L2” motorway ring road in Marseille, fully designed as digital model.
- In 2017, Egis, the Société du “Grand Paris” and their partners were awarded the 2017 BIM d’or in the infrastructure project category for their collaborative work around the BIM (Building Information modelling) on the future line 16 of the “Grand Paris Express”. The “BIM d’or ” (BIM gold award) organized by the Moniteur review and Les Cahiers Techniques du Bâtiment (french review) , in partnership with Autodesk, the CINOV Federation, Attic+, Finalcad and Prosys), dedicated to all actors in construction, is the unavoidable event in the world of BIM.
Egis is also investing in the use of big data technology. There are multiple aims: improving the design of the structures and facilities entrusted to us by taking better account of the way they are used, adapting their operations and developing new services for our customers and end users.En savoir + See the vidéo : BIM, engineering information modelin See the vidéo : what really happens with BIM
