2012 Key events

People are a key concern for all of the group's business lines.
In 2012, its efforts focused on managing talented staff, attractiveness, the new code of conduct and, like every year, diversity.

Priorities in 2012

The Group and all of its brands benefit from a high level of spontaneous attractiveness

For a number of years, communications initiatives targeted at students and new graduates have been launched in order to strengthen the Lagardère group's image as an employer, capitalising on all of its business lines and brand names. Notably, Lagardère is a partner of the Challenge du monde des grandes écoles et universitiés (World Academic Sports Challenge), which involves more than 5,000 young future graduates each year.

Diversity: we say "equal opportunities"

In 2012, the Group endeavoured to promote crossfunctional initiatives to support the integration of disabled people. Furthermore, in conjunction with the non-profit organisation Nos quartiers ont des talents (Our neighbourhoods have talent), Lagardère took part in coaching workshops and increased the number of mentorships by employees, thereby helping young people from inner cities to access the job market.

A new Code of Conduct

A new version of the Lagardère group's Code of Conduct was published in 2012. This is the result of unprecedented collaboration between the various business lines, entities and cultural identities that make up the Group. It took more than one year of working together to be able to put together this reference framework, which constitutes one of the fundamental aspects of Lagardère's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy.

A new dynamic in managing talented staff

In 2012, the Lagardère group redefined its principles and policies for managing talented staff across the Group, on the basis of procedures that have been in place for a number of years. This policy will enable the Group to build on all of the initiatives taken in terms of training, development and fostering talented people within the Group. Particular emphasis has been placed on proposing succession plans for all key jobs at Lagardère.
