As a responsible corporate citizen, we are committed to helping build a better future. This is reflected in our active involvement in three main areas through our various foundations and corporate philanthropy actions: music, community support and social inclusion. Since 2005 Safran has also sponsored an ocean racing team, a discipline that shares our core values of teamwork, exacting standards and continuous improvement.
Safran's primary asset is our people, who build the Group's success day after day. Thanks to the passion, expertise and engagement of more than 66,500 employees worldwide, Safran looks to the future with confidence.*
Embracing diversity for shared success
Diversity is an integral part of our culture. We firmly believe that it is a primary source of strength and the key to agility. People who join Safran can look forward to:
- being part of an international and multicultural organization operating in over 60 countries around the world.
- communicating across generations: Safran products are designed to remain in service for decades. This means that sharing and transferring know-how and experience is critical to product support and maintenance. Our mentoring policy enables younger employees to learn directly from more seasoned colleagues, creating a multi-generational workforce that benefits everyone involved.
- winning teamwork: enthusiastic collaboration within and across teams means enhanced performance.
Another core commitment is making our industry more attractive to women, who currently account for 27 % of our workforce and 36 % of new hires. Safran is also actively involved in maximizing employment opportunities for all sectors of the population. One example is the "intergenerational agreement" signed by the Group to support employment initiatives for young and older workers alike. In addition, we support the efforts of the Frateli association, which helps students from underprivileged neighborhoods throughout their education and in finding their first job.
We believe that providing the best possible workplace is a fundamental requirement. We aim to ensure that all employees work in a safe and healthy environment and deploy proactive campaigns to raise awareness about workplace stress.
Sharing the rewards
We believe that when our business thrives, our people should benefit, too. Safran offers a wide range of attractive employee schemes, including incentives, profit-sharing and employee savings plans. Safran employees currently own 11,9 % of our share capital.
