How Safran is working to promote work/life balance

Safran is committed to offering its employees various measures to help ensure a good work/life balance. Several telework solutions have been set up in order to provide flexibility to each employee. Additionally, other measures have been developed to support employees at various stages of their lives (agreements with daycare centers, time off to help a loved one in need, additional days off, time off for humanitarian work, etc.). This wide range of options, which are constantly evolving based on the needs and legislation in place in the Group's locations, allow Safran to provide additional added value that is essential to employees.

Training at Safran, an essential lever for developing skills

Training, whether organized face-to-face, online or in as a combination of the two, is viewed as an effective lever for boosting careers and building expertise at Safran. All the Group’s employees have access to training opportunities. Some courses are completed autonomously, others are supported by a tutor, with coaching or by on-the-job learning schemes. There are two organizations that propose training for employees: Safran University and the Digital Academy.

Safran University is Safran’s in-house university. It helps to build a shared culture based on innovation, performance and managerial excellence. It proposes a comprehensive range of training courses using innovative education solutions to foster employee development and the transformation of the Group. A variety of topics are covered, including strategy, operational aspects, personal development, etc.

Portrait of collaborator

"I had several opportunities to train through Safran University, first when I joined the Group and then during my professional development. I followed training directly related to my job, but also courses in personal development and foreign languages. I've enjoyed the flexibility offered by the different systems: face-to-face at the Campus – which also lets you expand your network and share best practices – e-learning on my computer or smartphone, virtual classes, etc." — Laurie, Technician in charge of the laboratory
