My integration at Safran
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.
Safran University is Safran's internal university. It's also a place for meetings and discussions, playing its part in strengthening a shared culture of innovation, performance and managerial excellence. Its comprehensive training offer is accessible to all, supporting employee development and Group transformation via innovative educational solutions in which digital technologies play a growing role. The training courses on offer cover strategic and operational subjects, as well as personal development.
"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
