Orange announced today its new industrial project, "conquests 2015." After NExT from Didier Lombard, the recently appointed CEO is now communicating Orange's five-year action plan.
One of the main objectives of the plan is the "conquest of employee pride" and the recruitment of 10,000 additional employees (including the 3,500 already announced for 2010) between 2010 and 2012. Following the unprecedented social crisis that took place in France, the company had no other choice than to offer a new management vision and to make sure employees can participate in the future of the company, involving them in such a way that they feel part of a long-term project.
Beyond this initial objective, a couple of other interesting conquests have been announced:
Operators undoubtedly have to react quickly in this fast-changing ecosystem. Even if details are scarce at this stage -- more information will be shared in Q4 2010 -- Orange's intent to share a vision for the next five years is very welcome. I wish more operators had the courage to share such a bold vision.
