VivaTech, the exhibition dedicated to new technologies and innovations, welcomes visitors to its 6th edition from June 15 to 18, 2022. The ‘future of work’ is widely discussed there, addressing current HR issues: employee retention, job welfare care and addressing recruitment difficulties.
If Las Vegas has its CES, Paris has its VivaTech. As every year, the high mass of change welcomes thousands of visitors to the Porte de Versailles. And this year the future of work is one of the strong trends. The world of work is changing, the war for talent is in full swing, employees are looking for meaning: VivaTech must address these issues. Or how change invites itself into HR. Leaves for display. ” We want to blow up the assembly: the proof, we suspended the chairs and tables on the ceiling ”said the Klaxoon team, the collaborative tools company, not without pride.
At VivaTech, he came to present the new version of his “Workshop platform”. And for the first time in France, he’s incorporating it into “Stage one”, a workspace already measures the effectiveness of meetings in real time. It can be adapted according to the needs of the team to use only one, two or three screens. Modular articulated arms have touch screens that can pivot, up, down … The panels invite you to write and allow teams to draw or hang different documents on them. On the floor, a lightweight system makes it possible to visualize, on five axes, the performance of the meeting: the time elapsed, the level of commitment, the results and content produced, the ability to work in an asynchronous and hybrid manner. ” The goal is to respect these five indicators and to create a space where everyone can express themselves to encourage everyone’s collaboration. Without interaction, meetings become less effective “, We explain to Klaxoon. And it’s Klaxoon’s ambition that, in a way, makes the work more inclusive.

The need to recreate
Nor is ambition lacking in the Manpower Group, which uses the mantra of “working to change the world”. ” This is an ambitious titlethe teams agreed to stand. But it reflects reality on earth. There is a change in the world of work, which defines some key pillars around the new aspirations of employees. “So there’s the question telecommuting, employee loyalty, talent display… For example, to refine your skills or even your career plan, virtual reality headsets allow you to immerse yourself in a parallel universe to answer a series of questions about your aspirations. Primarily focused on young talent (but anyone who loves VR will be attracted), the solution asks simple questions such as: “Do I want to manage a team?», «Do I want to work in the medical field?” Or in sports? ”“, Etc. ” The challenge is to attract talent. A simple online questionnaire does not make it attractive. It is therefore a question of adapting the way of evaluating skills to the lifestyle of the candidates. “, explains the team of Evaveo, partner of Manpower Group in the origin of this prototype presented at VivaTech.
The start-up also worked with Noos, a serious game to test your soft-skills. Based on a playful educational scenario, it allows you to incorporate a character and manage a problem in 10 minutes. Available in the form of a subscription, it is one of its tools dedicated to promoting knowledge to better retain employees.
In the same line, Manpower Group also introduced RightCoach, a 100% digital remote coaching. One particular Michelle Obama is also one of the proposed coaches… “ HR is more than ever in the midst of business challenges: it started before the crisis, but then accelerated. And it forces us to recreate ourselves “, emphasizes the Manpower Group, also citing the need for a” fairness at work », Not everyone has access to teleworking. This is why in start-ups at the Manpower Group stand, there is a 1 km walk. The young shoot calculates home-work trips to optimize them. Gain? A better quality of life thanks to shorter travel times and fuel savings. This last element becomes important in a context of inflation running. And in this same sense Edenred, an expert in payment solutions, is promoting its full range of tools in favor of employee purchasing power.

Soft mobility, for everyone
At VivaTech, at the Edenred stand, everyone is invited to immerse themselves in a virtual world to try out group tools (petrol or energy cards, meal voucher cards, etc.). It even goes to the NFT payment trial, a possibility Edenred has already offered in Mexico. If the tokens do not immediately contribute to bailing the wallets of the French, the group is campaigning, in parallel, in favor of raising the ceiling of the restaurant voucher and the development of its mobility voucher, in accordance with the law of Lom . These are two levers for attracting and retaining talent. Edenred also announced, during VivaTech, the integration of electric cars in carsharing Zity of Renault to its network of partners to make soft mobility accessible to all. Enough to align with the increasingly expressed concerns of ESG (environment, social and governance). ” ESG is really the new inconveniencewe confirm with KPMG, which has put together a large stand with twenty start-ups supported, most are running in this ESG niche. Technology is still there, but it has become a means and no longer an innovation in itself. Now, we ask ourselves more of the question of tools: technology, for what? For which business project? A powerful trend that coincides with a necessity that has been strengthened since the health crisis: restorationperson in the middle of it all.
