Empowering Our People through Comprehensive Onboarding and Development Programs

We are committed to supporting our new colleagues as they begin their journey with Publicis Sapient through virtual and in-person training and networking opportunities. We have developed a comprehensive onboarding program that sets us apart from many of our competitors.

While starting a new job can be overwhelming, the first few months in a new organization are also the most critical to your integration and long-term success. We've designed an onboarding program to ensure that our new employees feel supported and welcomed from day one.

Onboarding and PS Start

Starting with our special welcome box filled with all the essentials our newcomers need to hit the ground running. New employees of all career stages are also required to attend our international Publicis Sapient (PS Start) program which is a 3-day program covering various areas and topics, such as our company history, core values and diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. International internal speakers from a variety of disciplines lead the program, and attendees include new employees from across our capabilities to enable networking across teams.

In addition to our PS Start program, we've revamped our "buddy" program to support our new joiners during their first weeks. Our buddy program pairs new employees with established colleagues on a 1:1 basis. A buddy helps you navigate our systems and platforms, but more importantly, supports you in the small, sometimes stressful challenges of the early days of your new job. The buddy also helps to build networks and connections within the company, making the transition into our community less intimidating.

Training and Development

We invest in our people.

Our Accelerator Program is just one example of the many ways we help our people grow and develop as leaders. This 4-month program is designed to help our employees accelerate their ability to lead and execute Digital Business Transformation (DBT) curriculum focused on communication and influence, people and leadership and accelerating customer value. Each curriculum is designed to help our employees develop their skills so that they can excel in their roles and drive success for our clients.

Our "Unleash" innovation program, specific to the DACH region, is designed to unleash your innovative potential. It stands for being passionate about your work, realizing your potential and the independent desire to succeed. Under Unleash, all employees can use one day per month for self-initiated and self-directed projects that don’t necessarily relate to their day-to-day work.

Not only do we provide up-to-date, well-organized and comprehensive training and development programs but also opportunities for professional and personal growth through "home-grown" training, initiated or designed by employees to meet specific training needs. For example, our “Brown Bags” sessions offer quick and easy learning for spontaneous experiences and insights, with the opportunity for discussion afterward.

Another essential part of this development is regular and open feedback. We have an open feedback culture and have introduced formal training such as “Giving and receiving feedback” to support this environment.

Investing in the growth and development of our people is essential to our success as a business and we are committed to providing the best resources and support needed to achieve this. Does this sound like a great place to work for you? Join us at Publicis Sapient and let us help you enable your full potential! Our work environment is designed to help you thrive and succeed, and we can't wait to welcome you to our team.
