Faurecia, an automotive parts manufacturer, is an industrial giant, with 109,000 employees worldwide working in 300 manufacturing facilities and 30 R&D centers, reaching sales of €17bn.

Faurecia University, the company’s corporate university, aims to foster change and accompany this strategic transformation. The ultimate objective is for all employees to be fully engaged in the company and its evolution.
To meet Faurecia’s challenges regarding transformation and engagement, Faurecia University decided to go for digital learning, which meets the following requirements:

The “Learning Lab” Coorpacademy platform has been picking up steam since its launch 5 years ago. Today, it gathers over 70,000 active employees. Tailored certificates have been implemented, along with timely communications plans. Faurecia employs email campaigns, their social network and TV channel, to provide information about courses, to announce games and competitions, using the platform’s gaming tools.
Learners are everywhere in the world, in offices as well as in factories, where learning booths have been implemented.
Regarding the content, Faurecia rapidly developed courses that answered its business and transformation needs thanks to Cockpit, Coorpacademy’s online course creation tool. New courses collections have been created to train people on business operations, management and, such as: Understanding Faurecia Transformation, Growing as a Leader, Being responsible as a Faurecian, Managing Plant Operations,Developing Faurecian teams.
