Minter Dialogue with Laurent Choain

Laurent Choain is Chief People Officer, head of people, education and culture at the Mazars Group, a global audit and consulting company employing over 40,000 professionals around the world.

In this conversation, we discuss how Human Resource management has changed, Mazars’ strategy for recruiting and retaining the best talent (or the Creative Class), their focus on hiring naturally insecure over-achievers; how to create and maintain a powerful culture, the particularities of the French management style and culture, how to handle diversity and inclusion and much more. A vibrant and operational discussion.
