Develop your skills within a multi-disciplinary firm
Joining Fidal means having the opportunity to work in a dynamic and forward-looking firm that places talent development at the center of its priorities.
We help our talent grow, since they are the real drivers of our growth, by offering them an environment that is multidisciplinary, inter-professional, innovative, congenial and committed.
The quality of our ongoing training programs, which aims to improve the technical excellence of our professionals, is one of our core corporate values. This allows our talent to develop new skills and progress, while providing the best assistance to our client base.
Each year, the firm invests some €10 million in training, i.e. more than 6% of its total payroll. Over 1,700 employees across all business lines take a training course, every year.
Our ambition is to offer the best possible career advancement opportunities amid a constantly changing environment, where everyone must take responsibility for their career path.
As soon as they are recruited and regardless of their level of professional experience, employees receive personal assistance when following specific training programs that focus on developing technical as well as cross-functional skills.
People management is a major concern for the firm. Fidal has therefore created Talents Up, a high quality training syllabus, developed in partnership with the HEC Business School, which is unprecedented in the legal profession.
This in-house program, which is geared to personal development and the strengthening of managerial skills, offers participants the opportunity to take a step back and distance themselves from their profession and economic environment in order to analyze them differently, get to know one other and understand others better, through themed modules dedicated to leadership, human resources management and fundamentals of corporate management.
In the long term, more than 300 managers will benefit from this training program, which will result in the award of a certificate from HEC.
Young lawyers who join the firm are required to take part in a 2-day on-boarding workshop. This is a unique opportunity for discussing and sharing. This workshop enables participants to get to know the firm's culture and organization better, in a congenial atmosphere, and to become aware of its diversity. Recreational fun and educational workshops provide participants with the keys to success in terms of communication and relationships with future clients, but also with the firm's other professionals.
