The Group derives further strength from its ability to integrate newcomers fast, to spot people with potential and to offer continuous training to enhance the skills of its associates. It’s all about empowering people at every level to express their passion and achieve personal growth at Sonepar. Whenever possible, vacant positions throughout the Group are first offered to existing associates. Sonepar also organizes technical, managerial and sales training programs that are particularly valuable as business lines evolve. The many such programs provided continually by the Group show great variety, and they are consistently tailored to local needs. In addition, Sonacademy, our ten-year-old corporate university, offers a number of training modules to managers and high-potential associates.
