People and 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.

Arval Talent Care Programme PictoThis 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 20 countries (50% 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. 


In line with our Company strategy, this programme is all about “going beyond”. It aims to:

1. Grow and strengthen future leaders of the company
2. Benefit from high performing employees ideas to contribute to Arval's growth
3. Develop international and intercultural relations between countries of the Group


Every year since 2018, 40 employees (50% of women) from 20 countries are involved in a 9 months journey, allowing them to grow and strengthen their leadership thanks to a multitude of learning & development opportunities.

  • A team work on a strategic challenge for Arval Business to imagine and design innovative and concrete solutions

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 people and 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 a strong lever to develop and retain our talents. The sponsorship of Arval Group Executive Committee, the robust set up, the focus on “learning by doing, out of comfort zone”, the engagement of many actors all across the organisation and the high standard of our partners for training & coaching are real key success factors. This is really a pride to work for a company that is so committed to the development of its talents. And of course this is a win – win initiative for both employees and the company, as Arval benefits form their strategic proposals.”
