Earlier this year, 70 Sonepar Junior Committee (SJC) members gathered in Bangkok, Thailand, for the 'SJC Week Event'. The SJC is a program that develops people, ideas, proposals and analysis, bringing together associates from across the globe. The Committee's primary purpose is to act as Sonepar's 'think tank', working on creating solid networking via extensive collaboration between companies, countries and job functions in responding to Sonepar Executive Committee assignments.
In the presence of Chairman Marie-Christine Coisne-Roquette, CEO Philippe Delpech, and the Sonepar Executive Committee, 2019 SJC members successfully presented their research, and the newly appointed 2020 SJC members discovered the group assignment they are currently working on until June 2021. It was also a great opportunity for networking and exchanging!
In light of the brilliant work created during this event, the Learning and Talent Development Team have released three, inspirational videos with testimonials from the Executive Committee and the participants themselves on how they found the experience and what advice they would give to the next generation. This week, we've released the first in the series 'Living the Experience'...
About the SJC
Established in 1991, the Sonepar Junior Committee (SJC), welcomes talented associates from their early to mid-career from around the world. It is one of the Group's strong points for developing talent.
Each year, around fifty young managers from across the countries and professions come together to work on assignments given by the General Management about the strategic vision developed within Sonepar: discussing and exchanging ideas, comparing experiences, sharing cultural specificities, developing strategic thinking, strengthening cohesion and openness, enabling each associate to benefit from the best practices around the world.
At the end of the 18-month program, SJC members deliver their conclusion in front of the General Management.
