The BESIX Group’s Human Resources recruitment team organized the first BESIX Young Professional Days (BYPD) in Brussels and Ghent (Belgium), a new formula event to attract young talents.
Following pre-screening visits to nine Belgian universities and higher education colleges, no fewer than 113 young people were invited to take part in these busy days. On the program were presentations about BESIX Group, interactive workshops, speed interviews (2 x 12 minutes per candidate), meetings with management and distribution of goodies. A promotion campaign had been launched previously on Twitter, with the hashtag #readytobeBESIX.
The results speak for themselves: BESIX recruited no fewer than 28 candidates that it had met and assessed during these days, with a further 35 interesting profiles in reserve for potential future recruitments. The participants, visibly motivated, stressed the usefulness of this event which gave them a better grasp of all the career opportunities within the Group. Conclusion: a harvest of young talents, exciting encounters, lots of commitment and more than a hundred additional BESIX ambassadors!
