Olivier Roussat, CEO of the Bouygues group and sponsor of the "Les Entrepreneur(e)s” programme
Every day the Group’s people show how they are able to create, innovate and design solutions that to set us apart from the competition and make our products and services more appealing to our customers. This constant brainstorming creates fertile ground for the emergence of new business ideas amongst our employees that are related to our core activities. The Bouygues group wants to encourage and enable an intrapreneurial process that draws primarily on synergies between its business segments in order to foster the development, in agile mode, of activities, based on these new ideas, that are complementary to those of the business segments.
Intrapreneurship is beneficial to the Group because it stimulates innovation internally enabling it to adjust its business models to the challenges of the 21st century, and particularly to meet the aim of simplifying our customers’ everyday lives and contributing to building harmonious communities.
For employee-intrapreneurs, it gives them the opportunity to develop their ideas with peace of mind thanks to a personalised process and support. Coaching, training and access to financing and networks are all tools to make this rewarding and meaningful experience a fully-fledged driver of the Group’s cultural transformation. The Bouygues group has decided to fine-tune the path of the employee-intrapreneur by creating a programme called “Les Entrepreneur(s)” in order to speed up the transformation of ideas into tangible solutions in an agile manner. The programme defines a path that is open to all employees who want to design an innovative project that corresponds to the following theme: "New products and services: simplifying daily life and helping build harmonious communities".
