Innovative promoters of new functionalities and new services. The Manitou Group’s digital HR tools enabled the company to win the “Digital au service de l’efficience RH” xprize at the 2018 Digital HR Team Awards. The move to digital, which was started six years ago by the Group’s Human Resources Directorate, and the large number of available HR tools for a company with almost 4000 employees persuaded the jury, consisting of 15 business leaders, to choose them from the 15 dossiers submitted. The award ceremony took place at La Défense in Paris, before an assembly composed mainly of HRD, directors of HR development and training managers.

The HR department at the heart of the Manitou Group’s digital transformation
Annual reviews, plans for objectives, pay slips and individual HR reports have all been dematerialized to reduce environmental impact, in line with the company’s CSR approach. An e-learning platform, safe storage of all the administrative documents, and an international talent management tool have been implemented with the aim of improving “the employee experience” of Manitou staff. Communication and resource management platforms have been deployed, enabling local managers to be freed from time-consuming administrative tasks. The pay increase process has been dematerialized throughout the Group, resulting in increased efficiency, reliability, and traceability.

All these actions taken together demonstrate yet again the Group’s drive for innovation.

“We are very proud to receive this award at the 5th edition of the awards”,

said Guillaume RabelSuquet, Manitou Group’s Director of Human Resources.

We are committed to pursuing this proactive approach in the coming months and years.”
