Talent management is vital to fuel our transformations and promote our culture of inclusion, innovation and responsibility. Arval is a place for people in action and has always had a strong reputation for developing its employees.

In 2018, this was taken to a new level with the launch of the Arval Talent Care Programme. This initiative aims at developing a pool of "talents" to provide value-adding support to the Arval global business and power future growth. Through this programme, 40 employees from 19 countries (52% of women) currently benefit from continues learning promoting employee engagement at an international level.

For this, Arval deploys creative and innovation-focused workshops to build future forefront leaders. The purpose of this nine-month course is to encourage and strengthen leadership and innovative abilities. For example, one of the workshops includes meeting with start-up leaders to inspire talents to develop dynamic state-of-minds and place innovation at the heart of their work.

Alain van Groenendael
Arval Chairman and CEO

"At a time where the global labor market is very dynamic, it is essential to show how much we care about our talents. The final event of the Arval Talent Care Programme is a unique opportunity for us to freshen up our ideas, reflect on new initiatives and innovations. It is also the opportunity to select with our partners, customers and other members of the jury, the projects that will be implemented in the coming months. Like the previous years, I was amazed by the level of hard work, dedication and commitment of the participants! My warmest congratulations to all of them!"

"Arval Talent Care Programme is not a destination in itself, rather, it is a team experience, a way to develop individually and as a company."


This Programme shows very good results: every year, it generates a very high level of satisfaction (at least 9/10). Participants value in particular the networking with colleagues from all countries, the proximity with top management and being pushed out of their comfort zone and involved in strategic & concrete challenges for Arval (since 2018, half of the winning projects have been implemented).

Since its launch in 2018, 206 talents have lived this intense, comprehensive and fulfilling journey and grown from it.

  • 90% are still with Arval or in the Group
  • Most of them have changed job
  • 10% have done an international mobility
  • 5% have become Comex Member

I think I have gone through all possible moods: joy, fear, positivity, curiosity... During these 9 months I have learned a lot, not only about the "Challenge" I have had to work on, but also about Arval BNP Paribas Group and the great enthusiasm it puts into innovation. I have realized even more that I'm in the right place...

It was an amazing opportunity for me to meet new people, find how things work in other countries and place myself outside of my comfort zone. It was a great experience.
