New award for Safran and its Human Resources policy
After being singled out earlier this year as "one of the best employers in France" and recently topping the "Happy at work" rankings, Safran has once again been recognized for its human resources policy on the basis of four criteria: managerial commitment, the originality of its HR systems, the impact of the latter on company employees, and finally the consistency of HR policy with the Group's strategy.
The jury especially praised Safran's pro-employment apprenticeship policy, in particular its Shared Apprenticeship Program (SAP) which consists in making apprentices (on training programs in our companies) available to Safran subcontractors.
This scheme presents several advantages:
• it enables our subcontracting SMEs to train young people in their businesses and recruit qualified personnel more easily;
• it enables the young people in question to enhance their professional training and discover a variety of career opportunities in SMEs they may not have been aware of;
• it enables Safran to bolster the sustainability of its suppliers by providing it with a skilled workforce that understands the needs of our Group.
The other three finalists were L'Oréal, Accor and Orange – the latter won the Jury Prize in 2015.
