"ENGIE is a real family story!"

Sophie has worked for the ENGIE group for nearly 15 years within Global Business Support, Finance division.  "For her, ENGIE is a real family story!

As a teenager, she was already following the group's news because a member of her family was a employee of ENGIE. With working from home, her two daughters are already on the same path. "They often ask me when they can join the group!" Sophie reveals.

Studies and training 

With a Bachelor's degree in Public Relations, her profile attracted recruiters for "customer communications". "After my studies, I initially joined the group for a temporary assignment, which was converted into a fixed-term and then permanent contract. Three years ago, ENGIE offered me the opportunity to take the lead of the team in which I had grown and occupy the role of Team Leader within the Accounts Receivable Department.  The supervision I received both from the Human Resources department and my managers enabled me to gradually add strings to my bow." And it doesn't stop there for Sophie! A few months ago, she joined a programme to develop her skills and potential, which enabled her to follow tailored training courses as well as to work on ambitious projects.

Motivations

Sophie feels in total symbiosis with the group and the values it conveys. "I'm proud to bring my contribution to the table and to take part in the group's various challenges. I realise how lucky I am every day! I genuinely enjoy doing this job on a daily basis."

What about on a human level?

"ENGIE is a large group, which enables us to constantly meet new people and this is extremely rewarding both in professional and human terms. New synergies are created, we acquire a truly open mind and personally that boosts my creativity!"

Techniek-STER

Female technicians are unfortunately still in the minority. We have found a few who have been working in this predominantly male world for a few years.

Ann and Carine work for ENGIE Solutions at the Kontich assembly workshop, and nearly a third of their team are women!

They are the perfect colleagues to address the topic of men and women working together.

Ann Van Cammeren: "We complete each other very well and support each other. The atmosphere here is great!"

Carine Colomier: "I often visit construction sites and, in the past, I was often given funny looks. Now, it's no longer a problem."

"There are no shortage of growth opportunities!"

Rob Lacroix, who has a master's degree in electronics, has been working at ENGIE for four years. Given his passion for sailing, surfing and swimming, he feels completely at ease as a Project Manager at ENGIE Solutions, in the Water department, in Aartselaar, which comprises a hundred employees.


"With seven other colleagues, I am responsible for a certain number of projects and calls for tender up to their delivery. I also supervise the engineering and finance department. On a project, we always take care of the electromechanics component." Examples of renovation or new construction projects include moveable bridges such as London bridge and Mexico Bridge in Antwerp, as well as the Zandvliet and Berendrecht locks in the Port of Antwerp.


Training

Rob is very satisfied with the opportunities he gets at ENGIE. "We are not in the lions' den. It is thanks to training that I had the opportunity to reach my current position. First I was a Project Coordinator and then I became a Project Manager."

In recent years, Rob has undertaken various training courses. "If you are ambitious, ENGIE University offers countless training opportunities. I have taken a course in financial management and another in people management, in which an emphasis was placed on communication in the workplace."

The pleasant working environment is an important added value for Rob. "You are not just a number at ENGIE. Even though we are part of a large Group, our department feels like an SME. The atmosphere is really friendly! In recent years, I have built a good good network within the company, which is always positive for my career development at ENGIE."

"People management in a changing organisation"

A dynamic organisation like ENGIE is constantly changing and the working environment is transforming at a rapid pace. These changes are a source of inspiration for Xavier Dethy, Team Leader. After his commercial engineering studies, he worked as an IT consultant for four years. His career continued at ENGIE where he began as a Technical Analyst within the IT department in 2005. His interest in people management first of all led him to the role of Service Delivery Manger and then Team Leader for the Marketing & Sales Belux department. Additional training in leadership and assertiveness at ENGIE University strengthened his skills. "As a Team Leader, I'm very close to my employees. It's my role to coach them and help them do their work in the most optimal way possible. I support my employees in the organisational process and we create a climate of trust and independence. We also take the time to celebrate success. With these elements, the team's motivation is very high."
​​​​​​​

Never alone

Xavier is grateful for the career opportunities offered by ENGIE. "It's a really fascinating sector. We are experiencing a real revolution and it's interesting to have a front row seat. As an organisation, we must respond to our customers' wishes with ever more speed and intelligence. We are working on very innovative solutions such as boxx, IoT, smart grids etc." For Xavier, working at ENGIE is a team experience. "You're never alone. All the department's employees try to achieve the proposed results together. I feel completely at ease at ENGIE and I'm learning every day. There are still many challenges and opportunities for my professional future here."

"Friends since the Chiro and now colleagues"

Jonas, Evert and Niels are friends. They consider each other almost as family. They have known each other since childhood, from the Patro Catholic youth organisation.


Jonas is a Sales Account Manager at ENGIE Solutions.  He works in Brussels, in Malines and on customer sites.

Jonas: "I know Evert and Niels really well. I know what they're like. I find it fascinating working at ENGIE and I think they will fit in well here."

Niels: "Jonas very clearly aroused our interest in the sector and recommended that we apply to ENGIE. We were welcomed into a friendly and open place and I think that's very important. Here you can be at ease with everyone. The staff is very nice and pleasant."


Evert is a Project Manager trainee at ENGIE Solutions in Evere and confirms: "It's true.  At the Jobday this also seemed to be the message and it's also what we learnt at the Patro... If you have a problem, talk about it.  Everyone is approachable.  Call or send an e-mail and you'll get an answer."

Niels: "Then, there is also another fascinating aspect in this sector: the climate issue... which is always in the top of the mind. And it's gratifying to have the feeling of being able to take action on this issue."

Jonas: "It's nice to have my friends here.  It's clearly added value for me within the company - it strengthens my feeling of belonging. It motivates me to see them during the day or at meetings..."

Niels: "We complement each other as well... We're a chain: Jonas sells something, then Evert carries out the project..."

Jonas: "... and then Niels ensures the project runs smoothly."

Evert: "He enables Jonas to keep his promises."

The fact that they all work for the same company but in a different role seems to have advantages:

Jonas: "If we have a question about something specific, we can ask each other given that we each have a different role."

Niels: "We even call each other outside working hours for one reason or another. It's practical and easy because we know each other well."
