The Institut de Formation, de GEstion et de COmmerce (IFOGECO - School of Commerce and Management) was created exclusively to meet the requirements of the Mr Bricolage Group. The IFOGECO provides creates training programs in management, commerce, administration and products for the specific sectors of the Mr BricolageGroup. The school also organises many other training courses.
The IFOGECO training strategy is based on the daily operational requirements of personnel. A "trade" monitoring unit assesses these requirements throughout the year. This assessment is then used to create training programmes for each trade found in stores (see opposite).
The training modules organised by IFOGECO enable immediate operational application. Their aim is to allow participants to acquire means, methods, theoretical knowledge and easy techniques to apply in their professional environment. A few examples of the methods used:
- On-the-job application in a store
- Slide-based sessions
- Support media, presentation videos
- Practical exercises, analyses of actual cases
- Overview tables
- Use of IT resources
