OMV Petrom has launched a project to develop employees’ digital skills, “Digital Training Skill”, worth 2 million lei, co-financed by the European Social Fund, informs the company.
The project runs for a period of 18 months, starting this year.
“OMV Petrom’s digital transformation is a process that is based on both the implementation of new technologies and the creation of a digital culture and mentality among employees. This approach, oriented towards innovation and agility, supports the company to adapt to changes from the global level that the energy sector is going through,” said Christina Verchere, CEO of OMV Petrom.
The Digital Training Skills program is based on three pillars: the adoption of digital technologies, the promotion of a culture for change and the adoption of global digital IT skills.
