Arval as a leading provider of comprehensive car leasing solutions employs a staff of 7,000 in 29 countries. The company creates innovative solutions to meet the changing customer needs in the extent of mobility. Arval is introducing a new HR approach to attract the best experts. Over the last three years, the company has increased the number of employees by over 25%.
Submitting new ideas (Stimulating people in action). Arval is implementing the so-called agile methodology into HR management, which is typical of the work of start-ups. The objective of these changes is the desire to better respond to the needs of the contemporary company car user or car fleet manager: the services are to be available with a few clicks on the smartphone or laptop. Therefore, Arval is counting on the creativity of new employees as a result of which it will maintain its leadership position in the implementation of modern technologies into car rental and fleet management.
Productive work (Empowering people in action): Differentiated projects with a great deal of autonomy in decision-making have the objective of assuring employees of a broad field of operation. An important element of the success of this strategy is the environment: Arval cares about the atmosphere within the team, as well as employee attitudes. Arval’s digital transformation is being driven by four elements:
Technology – the provision of hardware and software to the employees which is appropriate to the jobs they perform;
Effective cooperation and communication between employees through the use of digital technologies;
Mobility – the provision of access to Arval’s data, systems and tools for the employees in all places and at all times;
Open attitude – promotion of openness and a culture exchange, especially regarding the approach to technology. Such an approach has the objective of increasing the level of employee satisfaction and driving the company’s digital transformation.
Personal development (Inspiring people in action): Arval wants to inspire people to act by systematically raising their qualifications and developing their skills. This area is managed at Arval by a specially appointed One Arval Academy, which is responsible for developing targeted training for talented employees (Arval Talent Care Programme) and offering the opportunity for internal promotion.
These activities constitute the pillars of Arval's HR policy, supporting the company’s promises to its employees which is: “Arval, A place for people in action.”
“We are creating a dynamic, international environment at Arval, in which every employee can develop. We offer work in an interesting environment with inspiring projects. We are looking for ambitious people, who will want to implement projects related to modern mobility with us.” - says Aleksandra Szmuk, HR Director at Arval.
