Safran Aero Boosters distinguished for its education projects
Agoria, the federation of technology companies, presented its 2016 Sesame awards, which distinguish companies for their commitment to the world of education and setting up effective partnerships with schools, high schools and universities.
Safran Aero Boosters is among the five winners alongside Automatic Systems, Wow Technologie, Capaul and See Telecom.
Among the many measures undertaken to foster closer ties with education (including work-study programs, site visits and training courses), Agoria highlighted in particular the ambassadors program we initiated in early 2016. This is a network of employees who act as liaisons for Safran Aero Boosters at eight universities and third-level schools and are tasked with developing collaborative projects in the form of internships, research projects or any other initiative fostering closer ties.
At the award ceremony, Xavier Naveau, Human Resources Director, re-emphasized the importance the company attributes to these initiatives in order to develop the talented individuals that companies need for their future.
