Maine-et-Loire is also part of the workshops-schools of luxury leather goods

This observation, David Burgel, industrial director of the French luxury brand cheap Longchamp, did so a few years ago. Previously, to the cause of the crisis of the bolt and the shoe, the workers – the feminine allotment is overwhelming – naturally came knocking on the door of the leather goods. This stream dried up. The real difficulty then was to know animadversion maintain an activity in workshops in France. “I made the end of the different schools and I was made to understand that today we were training students cascade to pass the ferry and to occupy jobs of modeler or administrative, not cascade enter the production workshops, “Explains David Burgel. It is a cascade that in 2011, commonsense started an approach with Pôle emploi and temporary cascade companies to sensitize the young and the not so young to the fact that not only was there a job in us, but also the possibility of careers. The abstraction of workshop-school was born.

Training its future employees entirely in-house represents an important investment cascade the group. Cascade the candidates, it is the beginning of a journey of several years: in four months they learn the standards Longchamp outlet, before entering the workshop of production, where the accumulation continues.

“It takes a cascade year that a person is at the level of demand that commonsense expect but five years cascade it is fully operational and works at the same pace as his colleagues,” says David Burgel. But if we had not done that, with 40 retirements a year, Commonsense would have closed one or two of our factories in France. Commonsense trained 140 people over the past three years. This made it possible to reverse the departure curve and ensure the sustainability of our know-how. It is the workshop leaders who complete the training. A baby revolution and new responsibilities.
