AN APPROACH THAT FOSTERS COMMUNITY SPIRIT
To ensure that everyone has equal employment opportunities and that they can develop within the Company, Renault has embraced the issue of diversity through a process of inclusion: recognizing, understanding and valuing differences so as to better integrate them. Adopted at the highest level of the Company and implemented by various stakeholders (Management, Human Resources, CSR, social partners and staff volunteers), this ambition is channeled through a multiple action plan.
PROMOTE PROFESSIONAL INTEGRATION OF THE DISABLED
Committed to the disabled for more than 20 years, especially in France, the Group now wishes to:
- Make its policy in favor of the disabled international and dynamic while considering the cultural identity and the specific character of each country where it is established.
- Connect all the Renault Group's initiatives that work toward a different perspective on disability at work and in society as a whole, while working on a route to professional integration.
- The Group has been involved with the NGO HANDICAP INTERNATIONAL for three years to benefit from its expertise, legitimacy and international visibility on behalf of the disabled (a partnership based on professional integration).
A COMPREHENSIVE POLICY FOR GENDER DIVERSITY WITHIN THE COMPANY
In order to promote gender diversity, in early 2010, Renault launched Women@Renault, a comprehensive plan for improving the representation of women at all levels of the Company.
The first aspect, Human Resources, involves talent management (recruitment, training, career management) and Renault has set quantifiable targets for the plan:
- recruit women for 30% of technical positions and 50% of sales positions;
- increase the percentage of women in key positions in the Group to 25% at end-2016;
- propose at least one woman in succession plans for key positions in the Group.
The second aspect of the Women@Renault plan is based on an internal social network, which has been mixed from the beginning, international and multi-category, where men and women discuss the progress of the equality initiative and analyze best practices in terms of training and career management. It currently has over 5,000 members in 14 countries, 25% of whom are men.
- Women accounted for 19% of total Group staff at end-2015 (compared with 11% in 2000);
- 25.9% of key positions within the Group were held by women at end-2015 (22% in 2012);
- Three of the 12 members (25%) of the Group Executive Committee in 2016 are women.
COMMITTED TO DISCUSSING LGBT TOPICS
As part of the discussions launched in France by a group of staff volunteers regarding LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) topics, a number of actions have been put in place in collaboration with Senior Management and the Company’s labor unions.
PROMOTE TALENT AT ALL AGES
Renault is committed to developing talent at all ages, particularly by supporting young people’s integration into the workplace and capitalizing on the experience of seniors. Renault pursues an active policy in relation to young people, from college until they enter working life. The Group develops programmes and actions to forge links between the worlds of education and employment, and to professionalize and develop their employability, with a particular focus on the promotion of diversity and equal opportunities.
