Combining pleasure and efficiency at work is possible. That is what the #agiletribe offers. For nearly 4 years, this BNP Paribas intrapreneurship program initiative has helped talented employees with skills useful to the Group to carry out short missions in parallel with their daily work.
It is a new way of working that helps diversify employee missions on the one hand, and test and shar new practices within the company on the other. Not only do employees develop new skills, but this also helps considerably reduce the costs of external services for the company.
Its advantage: bringing meaning to employees and to the Group.
The tribe brings together BNP Paribas employees with specific talents to make them available to the Group. With approval from their managers, employees spend some of their working time putting their expertise to work for other teams and entities through short-term missions (1 day on average). It is an initiative that the Group strongly supports to develop its employees, and that illustrates one of its key values, being a "Good Place to Work": offering employees an attractive and stimulating framework for daily work, in which respect and team spirit reign.
"In 2015, graphical facilitation was used very rarely within the Group. I was a pioneer. Creating the #agiletribe helped me institutionalise and spread it use", explained Céline Pernot-Burlet the intrapreneur who started the #agiletribe. On the strength of its success in France, the #agiletribe has been internationalised and includes a growing number of employees in Belgium and Luxembourg.
*Workers who hold several job functions are called "slashers" in reference to the "/" sign separating their various job functions when they list them. Slashers are workers who do not see themselves in a single chosen path. They are more likely to be flexible generalists than subject specialists.
