How a connected workforce increases retention and engagement

Recruiting new employees and engaging current ones in a modern, dynamic, and inclusive working environment will go a long way towards their job satisfaction. Traditionally, manufacturing or other factory workers have been at the tail-end of digitalisation and other technical aids to do their jobs efficiently. No more. Companies around the world have woken up to the fact that if they spend a little effort on addressing cultural concerns of their employees, the benefits are a multiple of any investment. This whitepaper provides pathways for firms to give workers more job satisfaction by having them participate at work in myriad ways.

The Loire-based company has invested EUR10.5m (US$11.7m) to build a new factory in Rives, about an hour north east of Lyon and two hours from the company’s main production facility in Mably.

The new plant is due to open this summer and will specialise in the production of ready meals, pizzas and quiches.

Asked about Valentin Traiteur’s international expansion plans, the company confirmed it was studying plans for an expansion into Canada but refused to make any further comment on timelines or investments.

A statement issued before Christmas, signed by Valentin Traiteur’s group president, Emmanuel Brochot, made no mention of Canada, but said its new French facility was part of a “permanent growth” strategy.

The new facility in Rives will add 50 new jobs to the to an existing workforce of 250. The factory will cover 5,500 square metres and will absorb a smaller existing 3,500 square metre factory in nearby Voreppe.

The Voreppe factory is owned by Alpes Frais Production, itself absorbed into the Valentin Traiteur group in 2013. It is best known for its Pierre Clot brand of prepared foods.
