We stand out in
Over the past two years we went the extra mile in helping to bring 752 geographically dispersed Easyfairs employees to their full potential with the comprehensive roll-out of the Easyfairs Academy, which we launched in 2014. We not only believe, but have demonstrated, that by accelerating talent development and encouraging talented individuals to try out new things we dramatically increase employee performance, engagement and retention. In 2017 these efforts were recognised as we won the UFI Education Award. In conferring this accolade UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, paid tribute to the role played by talent development in our company’s growth and highlighted the “measurement tools in place to continually assess the success of the project, and review if and when necessary”.
The Academy focuses on the “C Success Factors” for the events and venues business. These are now firmly embedded in our company culture and provide a firm basis for continuing talent development under the slogan “Boost your Future”.
Talent management takes a high priority at Easyfairs and we take a systematic approach. Over the past four years we have rolled out our Group-wide e-HR platform for agreeing team and personal objectives, personal development plans and competence and performance profiles. This means all of our HR data is digital and centrally managed. Among other advantages, this enables us to detect areas for action and plan talent acquisition, talent development and talent succession strategies.
