A strong commitment to employee well-being and development
Our ambitions as an employer focus on two themes:
- Protecting the health and safety of the people who work for the Group and increasing their well-being on the job.
- Creating a work environment that fosters trust, cooperation and diversity, where all employees can grow and contribute to progress and innovation.
The Group strives to create workplaces that favor the simultaneous achievement of all four pillars of individual balance and well-being:
- Personal achievement
To that end, the Group develops projects focused on improving workplaces, organizations and communication.
The Group also empowers the countries and sites to move forward on key issues, based on locally expressed needs. The well-being indicator included in the Moving Forward Together Survey will be used to monitor changes.
Supporting career paths
Michelin strives to ensure that each and every employee is empowered to define his or her own career path. Employees receive support in managing their career with the Group from their managers and development partners. Employees' personal and professional development is also supported by an on-boarding, integration and training program designed to be tailored to individual needs.
Internal promotion is a major priority for Michelin: In 2019, 74 percent of Group managers came from within company ranks. Also in 2017, the Group's investment in personnel development remained high, with 4.6 million hours of training.
Michelin applies a nondiscrimination policy and guarantees equal pay for equivalent experience and positions. The Group uses the same audited methodology worldwide to enable comparisons between men and women's pay for equivalent positions.
Michelin has set a goal of women representing 30 percent of managers and supervisors by 2020. That figure was already 27.4 percent in 2019.
In 2013, Michelin set the objective of 80 percent local management in growth ones. That figure was 75 percent in 2019.
