Talent at the heart of our priorities 

At a time of profound technological, economic and environmental change, being able to rely on strong expertise is a major challenge for the telecoms sector. At Orange, our employees are our priority and one of the keys to the success of our Lead the Future strategic plan. 

We have therefore consolidated our human resources strategy to support our transformation towards greater efficiency and effectiveness, in line with our new enterprise model. Two levers are essential to the success of this strategy: employee commitment and the attention paid to our employees in terms of skills development and retention.

To this end, we have set up training programs to enable employees to acquire new skills, with a view to changing jobs (reskilling) or adapting to professional evolutions (upskilling), which are greatly impacted by major technological breakthroughs and CSR challenges. In France, the Orange Apprentice Training Center also provides support for work-study students in the telecoms sector’s growth areas. And thanks to the Orange Graduate Program, we can offer young graduates a tailored career path that stands apart from the competition. 

Finally, to foster the loyalty of our employees, we meet their expectations in terms of diversity, fairness, work-life balance, health and safety at work, and mobility. Orange’s strength lies in its talent, which is at the heart of our priorities.
