Rexel rewarded in the CEO/Head of Human Resources team trophies
The “Coup de cœur” Trophy has been awarded to the team formed by Jean-Charles Pauze and Jean-Dominique Perret, respectively the Chairman of the Management Board and Group Senior Vice President, Human Resources of Rexel Group, a world leader in the distribution of electrical supplies. This prize is a reward for Rexel’s human resources policy, which values the dynamics of a community of people working on a joint project where each person embodies the concepts of service, proximity to clients and leadership.
Cathy Koop, former Director General HR, Major Groups, and Eric Morgain, an Associate at Deloitte, presented Jean-Charles Pauze and Jean-Dominique Perret with the Global HR “Coup de cœur” Trophy, which was awarded by a Grand Jury of 250 Heads of Human Resources and HR professionals. The prize was presented at the awards ceremony for CEO/HR Team Trophies organised by the HR&M GROUP, which was held on 23 March 2010 in the Palais Brongniart, Paris.
The two executives also won the prize awarded for “responsibility and entrepreneurship”. This award was presented to them by CrossKnowledge, the European expert in the remote development of leadership and management skills through new technologies.
These awards reflect both executives’ shared vision of Rexel’s strategic project, which makes the personal development of the Group’s staff a priority to ensure the success of this services organisation (61% of Group staff are in contact with the customers).
These two prizes also highlight Rexel’s human resources policy, focused on entrepreneurial spirit, stimulated by training and support for professional development, in particular through compensation and promotion. Driven by the Group and implemented by local brands, this human resources policy develops the dynamics of a community of people with an exacting standard of professionalism and skills of anticipation and initiative. It is to a large extent thanks to this policy that Rexel’s leadership is embodied on a day-to-day basis in the contribution made by each member of staff.
