An active, controlled policy that has proven its merits!

This policy is overseen by a central Mission Handicap unit, supported by local sponsors on the ground. Their role is to:

  • Support managers and employees on the issue of disability, from recruitment to integration, including training and job retention.
  • Be attentive to employees concerned by a disability situation to ensure a working environment conducive to their fulfilment and performance. For example: through dedicated facilities (equipment, organisational or worktime arrangements), Cheques for Universal Employment Services (CESU), additional days’ leave for medical and/or administrative reasons.

​​​​​​​​​All of these actions and initiatives are organised in the scope of an approved collective agreement on disabilities. On the strength of three successive agreements, with a fourth lined up for 2023-2025, the rate of direct employment of people with disabilities increased sixfold between 2007 and 2021, attesting to the active, inventive and determined commitment of the handicap unit.

A key issue in France and internationally

Beyond the collective approach, integrating employees with disabilities depends on the involvement of all, hence the need to mobilise all our employees throughout the world.

Our handicap policy is now deployed internationally. The aim is for it to be adopted in all the countries in which we operate, taking into account the local legal context, requirements and culture. We attach particular importance to understanding the needs of every individual in line with their profiles, missions and sectors, in order to respond in the most appropriate manner.
