The approach covers all of the Group's activities: safety, driving, operations, customer culture and relationship, maintenance, rail regulation, finance, procurement, legal and HR…
From management basics to leadership skills, all our future managers - whether beginners or experienced - receive dedicated training.
Flagship programmes in France include START and CHALLENGE for junior and confirmed operational managers, as well as GO and MY LEADERSHIP for executives. Two programmes are oriented towards project management and performance: DRIVE caters to experienced executives, and D'FI is designed for new subsidiary managers.
Outside France, Keolis develops tailor-made immersion programmes, helping managers to rapidly develop their skills, and facilitating the matching of these skills between subsidiaries. These programmes use diverse, innovative, teaching methods, such as learning expeditions, mentoring, or business games.
Innovative teaching methods
We believe that everyone learns differently. That’s why we use mixed methods (blended learning). We employ a wide variety of tools and methodologies, and incorporate innovative measures when designing new training programmes. We also strive to adapt our teaching methods to the specificities of each of our subsidiaries worldwide.
For example, Keolis has invested in driving simulators. These systems allow employees to safely practice driving reflexes and techniques in a variety of situations, including potentially dangerous ones, such as emergency braking, respecting safety distances, or the presence of a pedestrian on the tracks.
