Hachette Livre: bespoke training for recruiting managers

While Hachette Livre recruits more than 800 employees each year in France of varying status (permanent, temporary, apprentices, interns), the priority of strengthening employer attractiveness and talent retention is more crucial than ever for our division, whose performance depends largely on the quality of its human resources.

Promoting a diverse range of backgrounds (age, sex, ethnic or social origin) is also a strategic challenge as talented and diversified staff, in terms of their skills and know-how, will enable Hachette Livre to respond to the priorities of tomorrow.

Our attractiveness as an employer relies on our ability to recruit well. More specifically, recruitment is one of a manager's main duties. It is also a way for a company to communicate its values, plans and vision to the outside world, as all recruiters are ambassadors of the company. Lastly, it is also a sensitive exercise as it requires compliance with a legal framework, particularly in terms of non discrimination.

For all these reasons, at the end of 2017 Hachette Livre's Human Resources Department introduced a dedicated recruitment training programme for managers, accompanied by a guide for recruiting managers providing details of all stages of the process, from identifying the needs of the position on offer to integrating the selected candidate into the company.

A total of 40 managers benefited from this programme in 2018.
