Groupe SEB's human resources policy seeks to reinforce a global social cornerstone based on the group 's values of entrepreneurial ambition, a passion for innovation, professionalism, group spirit, and respect for people.
In terms of social protection, in 2017 the Group launched an initiative designed to offer its employees, throughout the world, a high level of coverage compared to the local context, beyond regulatory obligations.
Every permanent employee, regardless of his/her country and level, will benefit at least from the coverage of this global base.
For many years, we have introduced measures to reduce the number of workplace accidents. Our 29 health, safety and environment coordinators at our international industrial and logistics sites make this possible.
Our group embodies diversity: a source of vitality, creativity, and innovation. From gender equality to diverse ethic and social origins, from young people and seniors to the integration of people with disabilities, we consistently abide by our code of ethics.
Dialogue between the Group’s management and employees is an integral part of our code of ethics. We are committed to encouraging such dialogue and respecting the freedom of association around the world.
As such, we create employee representation bodies in all our operating countries. We have also signed collective agreements at our companies: at end-2020, nearly 65% of our workforce was covered by a collective agreement signed within the year.
Training is essential to the development of skills and consequently concerns all our employees. In 2019, each employee had around 19hours of training during the year.
Highly attentive to our employees' quality of life at work, we have assessed their perception of such through a survey conducted by the Great Place to Work institute since 2018. Our target, based on the results of the survey, is to introduce an action plan to improve each of the weak points identified.
