Being a responsible employer
The Lagardère group is fully aware that its performance is directly linked to its employees' skills and the suitability of its resources.Accordingly, being a responsible employer is its top priority. This takes the form of three commitments:
- ensuring workforce balance and diversity;
- promoting harmonious working conditions;
- encouraging the development of skills.
Although these commitments, defined by Lagardère in collaboration with the divisional heads of human resources, are common to all divisions, operational entities nevertheless manage their human resources autonomously.
In addition to monitoring commitments made by the various entities, the Group started two projects in 2012 in conjunction with the divisions.
