Employees at this site came up with the idea of creativity rooms, called Eureka rooms. Intended to inspire employee innovation, each room features tools to stimulate team creativity, identify roadblocks and facilitate problem solving.
Radiall CHR values its team of employees who are committed to excellency. Many employees have been with Radiall for years, and Alexandra has been part of the Radiall family for nearly her whole life! She shared a little bit of her story, “Both of my parents worked at Radiall Château-Renault, so my story with the site started when I was just 6 months old, at a Christmas party! I followed their steps and joined the company 21 years ago, but I made my own path here. I started with a temporary position in production, later became a planner and was promoted to MoveX Key User. I participated in the SAP migration at CHR, and now I work in Supply Chain Improvement. I created opportunities to explore and found the path that fits me.”
