With more than 99,000 positions within the Group, there are many opportunities for employees to change site, region, market segment, position or profession. 

Internal mobility opportunities

At Elior, we are convinced that encouraging our teams to consider trying for a new position and facilitating internal mobility is beneficial to both:   

  • our employees, who develop their skills and employability by facing new challenges
  • the Group, which benefits from new perspectives, experiences and profiles at the service of our customers

Yearly meetings with managers

Every year, all of our employees have a formal meeting with their manager during which they can have an open and constructive discussion about their objectives and future opportunities.

Making employees aware of mobility opportunities

The Group has implemented several internal mobility tools enabling our employees to find out about all the job opportunities available at Elior.   

Finding out about “my colleague’s job”

Thanks to the “Live my Life "initiative, our employees can contact their Elior colleagues and spend a few days finding out about their jobs. 

Promoting in-house mobility

The roll-out of Andjaro in several of the Group’s operating countries has paved the way for temporary internal mobility.

Your career path is essential

Regardless of the country and the activity, the survey results are conclusive: the acquisition of new skills is high on the list of priorities of our present and future employees. Do you like to leave work in the evening with the feeling you have learnt something new, or acquired a new skill? So do we!

Like you, we know that developing new skills necessitates structured processes, including integration, training, coaching, co-development, tutoring and mentoring, etc. However, this also involves less formal experiences such as daily meetings, reading, podcasts and videos.
