Equality, mobility, health and safety: the cornerstones of Groupe PSA work environment

Groupe PSA provides all its employees with excellent opportunities for development and employability so as to unite the vital forces it needs to succeed. Its human resources management is designed to enable employees to work to the maximum of their abilities, to prepare them for new job requirements, and to offer an ethical, fair and agreeable work environment.

A learning company for greater competitiveness

Management of knowledge and know-how is essential today. This human capital is an important source of efficiency for the company. To tap this resource, PSA University seeks to make Groupe PSA a learning company by encouraging employees to continually improve their skills. Doing so benefits both the company, which becomes more competitive, and employees, who maintain their employability.

To develop this new learning culture in the Group, new ways of learning are being introduced. Courses in a classroom are no longer the only method. Online training, virtual classes, and community discussion groups are all alternatives that are well adapted to meeting today’s needs. With these flexible and diverse methods, employees become active participants in the learning process.
