DESCRIBE YOUR JOB IN A FEW WORDS
I’m Open Innovation Director. This involves expanding our innovation capabilities through various initiatives such as intrapreneurship programs or “learning by doing” trainings. Thus, I am looking for new business opportunities that border our current markets by using Design Thinking. In order to get a very dynamic and motivating approach, it often requires dealing with inspiring events like challenges. Our “openness” approach is also intending to expand our range of external partners by formalizing our relationships with start-ups, for example.
I set up and deploy Open Innovation programs with a disruptive spirit in which many employees enjoy participating!
THE BENEFITS OF YOUR JOB?
I’d say creating new business opportunities and good synergies between group activities. Open Innovation greatly favours openminded spirit and transversality and, more broadly, openness to the world around us. A very stimulating environment for current and future employees!
A MESSAGE FOR JOB APPLICANTS?
With its 43,000 employees, Hutchinson is a large group but organisation in business units with very diverse activities often provides a high degree of autonomy built on a human scale! It's very exciting because the diversity of our products, markets and trades is impressive and almost limitless!
