Our Human Resources
PRESENT AROUND THE WORLD, COFACE’S EXPERTS EMBODY OUR VALUES AND CREDIT INSURANCE EXPERTISE
Joining Coface means becoming part of an international company and participating in our quest for excellence to secure companies’ business and development. It also involves being an integral part of the country’s economy: with operations in the four corners of the world, Coface’s experts need to absorb the local culture in order to earn our customers’ trust.
COFACE EMPLOYEES BY REGION:
THE FOUR COMMITMENTS OF OUR HR POLICY
FOCUS ON NEW EMPLOYEES
At Coface, all new management staff participate in a training program during their first year. As part of this training, they familiarize themselves with the company culture, learn about our many business lines and forge a network of internal contacts that are valuable for their own working relationships and well-being.
Within the first few months of joining the company, each Coface employee has access to a series of training programs offered by experienced company managers, qualified consultants and local specialists. Focusing mainly on risk underwriting, enhanced information, disputes and receivables collection, these programs provide an opportunity for the participants to improve their knowledge and learn the finer points of credit insurance.
PROMOTE CAREER DEVELOPMENT
Each year and in every country, we evaluate the performances and skills of our employees. This step makes it possible to offer them the broadest possible view of their own career development opportunities. It prepares each person to assume greater responsibilities within the Group. Employees promoted to positions of high responsibility receive personalized support combined with centralized career management.
Coface strives to offer an incentive-based compensation policy, which enables all employees to receive compensation commensurate to their degree of involvement. The Group therefore provides its most committed employees with additional variable compensation based on their performance as well as their contribution to the company’s earnings.
