For the first time in the Group’s history, Bouygues is launching an intrapreneurship policy. Intrapreneurship offers employees, whatever their position or specialisation, an opportunity to become entrepreneurs, drawing on the support and expertise of the Group’s business segments.
Called “Innovate Like a Start-up”, the Bouygues group’s intrapreneurship programme aims to offer a simple, agile and stimulating way to develop ideas for commercial solutions complementary to its core businesses. It complements intrapreneurship programmes within each business segment, such as NewValue at Bouygues Construction, Digital Makers at Bouygues Immobilier and Business Lab at TF1. Within this framework, an idea can lead to the creation of a specific activity which may take the form of a wholly-owned subsidiary, an entity or a spin-off with an external shareholder.
Encouraging innovation, this new programme contributes to the Group’s aim of reinventing its businesses and adapting to the changes taking place in society as a result of factors like climate change, digital transformation and urbanisation.
Five good reasons for becoming an intrapreneur
- Open to all employees
- Access to the strengths of the Group’s business
- From idea to roll-out of a commercial solution
- Specific time, budget and support
- A programme under supervision
How does it work?
All ideas that are innovative and address current issues are welcome, especially those which help to respond to major challenges Group-wide: making infrastructure more sustainable and resilient, improving the social fabric, pooling resources, reinvigorating regional economies, etc. These are all avenues to explore in furtherance of the Bouygues group’s mission of making progress become reality.
our idea may be an ad hoc proposal. The “Innovate Like a Start-up” programme acts as a link between an idea and the resources needed to turn it into a commercial solution. To be eligible, your idea needs to go beyond the specific confines of one of the Group’s business segments (Bouygues Construction, Bouygues Immobilier, Colas, Bouygues Telecom and TF1) and require the involvement of several entities from inside or outside the Group.
