Winners of the multidisciplinary Alstom-Innovation Factory challenge announced

On The March 11, 2019

Alstom and the Université de Lyon’s Innovation Factory have just closed their third multidisciplinary student challenge, this time exploring the theme of talent management (attracting and integrating new employees, and supporting their growth). The awards were given by Gwenaelle Prigent, Director of Human Resources for Alstom’s signaling department.

The first prize was awarded to the “EDDI” project, a mobile app providing a complete, long-term solution for integrating new employees.

Two other projects also received awards: “AlstoMoov’in” won second prize for its dynamic interface bringing together and simplifying career management tools (training, mobility, sharing experiences with coworkers, etc.)

The third prize was given to the “Feel’it” project for providing a sensory experience to applicants during job interviews. It aims to lower the rate of job offer rejection.

Through the Innovation Factory, Alstom and the Université de Lyon have involved about forty students from all backgrounds (social psychology, management, design, human resources, engineering), managers and HR directors from Alstom on March 7 and 8 to imagine innovative solutions to attract, and integrate new employees and support their professional development.

About the multidisciplinary student challenge

This third innovation challenge for multidisciplinary teams of students is a testament to the power of the ideation process and bringing together different disciplines and backgrounds, as well as of the partnership between Alstom and the Innovation Factory. The first challenge, in 2016, focused on the accessibility of trains and subways. The second challenge, in 2018, focused on safety issues in public transportation. These two challenges were also fruitful, yielding prototypes and a patent.
