HR issues and challenges

Sanofi is one of the world's leading healthcare companies, dedicated to helping people facing health challenges. Today, Sanofi has more than 100,000 employees in over 100 countries.

The biopharmaceutical sector is undergoing transformation, impacted by changes of several kinds: societal, competitive and technological. It is in this context that Sanofi has decided to support its employees through coaching.

The Simundia solution

Following several years of internal reorganization, Sanofi decided to launch a new transformation plan and outsource a large part of its support functions. Agnès Ceruti was responsible for helping 1,000 employees retrain. Some progressed from technician to supervisor of an external service provider, while others changed career paths or left the company. Following the implementation of Simundia, Sanofi is delighted with the successful retraining of its in-house staff (who have moved from an operational role to a supervisory role), the reduction in stress and the improved overall performance of its teams.

50%
of women leave the tech industry after 8 years*.

Short, high-impact coaching

The retraining process for over 1,000 employees was a success, thanks to the flexible format of Simundia coaching and the quality of the coaches offered.

In 2020, women accounted for just 24% of senior managers and executives in France.

Soft skills developed to cope with change

The aim of Simundia's coaching was to provide Sanofi employees with all the tools and resources they needed to make the most of a changing environment. This objective was achieved, and the coaching also enabled them to deepen the learning they had already acquired in training.
