Innovation at the heart of our HR policy

Innovation at the heart of our HR policy:

At ODDO BHF, innovation is at the heart of our HR policy, especially through the organisation of calls for innovative internal projects, the development of training programmes and academic partnerships for our employees.

Digital Champions

40 Digital Champions were chosen throughout the Group’s business areas to undertake training and work on innovative projects, particularly Blockchain and artificial intelligence.

Innovative internal projects

The Group also organises calls for innovative internal projects. One of them made it possible to launch The Ladies Bank, an information platform that aims to inspire women to look after their wealth more and develop their network.

Web School Factory

ODDO BHF is a partner of Web School Factory, a management school dedicated to digital transformation founded in 2012 by Anne Lalou. It has developed an innovative system that brings together the academic (teaching staff and students) and corporate worlds.

ODDO BHF’s decision to partner with this project testifies to the interest the Group takes in digital transformation and its commitment to developing innovative solutions. The objective is four fold:

  • Promote intrapreneurship
  • Link the company to innovation ecosystems
  • Connect students to the professional world
  • Take steps towards equality of opportunity

A curriculum designed for Group employees

Based on the belief that the digital world is bringing about new training pathways and involves new disciplines and ways of learning, this partnership offers Group employees who are selected a rich curriculum in a variety of disciplines.

Thus, this training offers classes in project management, methodology, design, communication and management, ensuring an operational and pragmatic programme. It sets the goal of supporting companies in their digital transformation by training future managers in today's digital challenges. Thus, at the end of the course, selected employees will bear the responsibility of becoming ambassadors of the new methods, technologies and ways of thinking throughout the group.

In practical terms, what does this training look like?

CFEE training offers a format of four to five teams of four persons, composed of two students and two company employees, who must, over the course of two terms, do two different projects on corporate issues (for example, how can artificial intelligence change/strengthen our business?). The teams are supported by two mentors and one advisor and are supervised by the project manager. If necessary, experts from various fields can be invited to support the professional implementation of the projects.

The formula extends over 10 months and 100 hours of mandatory classes as well as 20 hours of à la carte classes where students and employees can choose from amongst all the classes given.

In tandem, we have also established academic partnerships with ESPRIT University in Tunisia and Schoolab.

Lunch & Learn

Since January 2019, ODDO BHF has organised four Lunch & Learns on innovation in collaboration with Web School Factory in France. The topics were Agility, Design Thinking, UX Design and Client Understanding.

Managerial skills: Promoting agility and innovation

At the end of 2018, we formalised eight skills and behaviours associated with succeeding as an ODDO BHF Group manager. We then created the Management Coaching Programme in eight modules, each one covering one of these skills.

In 2019, we are coaching our managers in the Agility and Innovation module, which shows the Group's commitment to improving day-to-day managerial practices and keeping pace with digital transformation.

ODDO BHF x HEC Digital Business Project

At the beginning of 2019, ODDO BHF welcomed two HEC Paris students for a consultancy as part of the HEC Digital Business Masters Programme Business Project. The consultancy took investment strategy into FinTech/InsurTech: the two students analysed the FinTech/InsurTech market and evaluated investment opportunities for ODDO BHF.
