Jean-Michel’s daily diet consists of strategic workforce planning, which requires inside knowledge of research needs and the human resources available to fulfil them. He spends his days helping staff and division heads respond to different demands in terms of recruitment, training, etc., and he really enjoys doing so! His job requires mastery of long-term management tools and a deep understanding of the situation “on the ground”, which he gets from visiting different laboratories and division units all around France. His knowledge and skills, ability to listen, friendly demeanour and team spirit are appreciated by one and all.
