Young people: more than 2,000 work/study contracts per year and 800 youth employment contracts over three years
Despite unfavourable business conditions in recent years, Renault has always pursued an active policy on youth employment. In 2012, the company welcomed 3,500 young people as part of work/study contracts, internships, the VIE program for international corporate volunteers, or CIFRE agreements for training through research.
In the new agreement, Renault goes further to make a number of detailed commitments:
To enable young recruits to find their feet in the job, a personalized monitoring program will be put in place during their first six months with the company..
Seniors: emphasis on maintaining employment, working conditions and employability
Renault will continue efforts to keep older people in employment, to improve working conditions by doing away with heavy jobs, and to pursue training. These efforts go beyond the measures already set out in previous agreements, such as a career review for the over-45s or a dispensation from work for employees over 58.
Renault will maintain the proportion of employees aged over 55 at 14% between now and December 2016 and will reserve 2% of hires on open-ended contracts for people of 50 or over.
Production workers aged over 55 on night work will be given priority for a transfer to daytime work if they so wish, provided that a position is available. They will also be able to request an analysis of the match between their job and their personal aptitudes and request a transfer if necessary.
Renault will also continue efforts in in-house training, without age discrimination. In 2012, 70% of the over-45s were able to follow training.
Intergenerational solidarity: creation of a part-time position for the transmission of expertise
The agreement aims to develop an intergenerational exchange by putting forward measures for passing on the know-how and expertise that are key to the company, as in the case of electromechanical technicians or tool-and-die makers. In this way:
