The program in a few words

Yumana supported Engie Staffing GBS in the structuring of their platform and the opening of the various programs. The key features available of the platform has made it possible for Engie to embed several use cases: ideation, content sharing, training, community outreach and referrals for their partners.

Through the Yumana solution, Engie’s “Recruitment” community may now centralize and share their knowledge in terms of best practices, submit ideas, centralize their feedback and thus create maximum synergies.

The challenge of Engie Staffing Management

Be.Hive, a real collaborative hub dreamed up by the Engie Staffing business unit and developed by Yumana, is entirely dedicated to recruitment. It aims to spread knowledge within the Engie Group, techniques, methods and to capitalize on collective experiences and know-how.

Engie Staffing Management is convinced that it is through the power of ideation and network innovation that Engie may strengthen its ability to act in an ever more responsive, impactful, cross-functional and efficient manner.

Yumana’s solution

It is:

  • A sharing platform

  • An educational platform

    access to external news watch (RSS feed) and to a document library. Be.Hive is a centralized and easy-to-access documentary database.

  • A mutual aid and participatory platform

    access to a forum, contact with the community and all the Hive.members. The objective is to feed on the community’s ideas and to accelerate collaboration.

  • A networking platform

    access to an ecosystem of partners. Users may search for partners to meet needs and carry out projects. They also can suggest partner to refer them on the digital platform. The objective is to be able to map ecosystems of partners, in order to increase collaboration.

  • Good practices

    – Be hive, a dynamic, colorful and punchy design. Providing an attractive platform has promoted collaboration and discovery of the Hub.
