A multiple company
The Group’s transformation is accompanied by an increased development of talents and skills in all their diversity.
The Group gives priority to local skills in the Regions. By reducing the number of expatriates, the Group seeks to develop local talent in the regions in strategic positions, while continuing to second the best international talent to our regions.
This policy allows a better knowledge of local strengths, opportunities and constraints, both technically and business-wise.
At the end of 2018, 316 employees were working as expatriates in 33 countries around the world (China, Morocco, France, Germany and India).
The international talent rate in the Group’s top management is 17% at the end of 2018. They accounted for 35% of senior management appointments and 70% of top management hires.
In 2019, our action is focused on non-European talent to effectively support the Group’s international expansion: implementation of development actions, career paths and a stronger presence of international talent in key positions
Feminisation of Top Management
For more than 15 years, the Group has pursued a proactive policy of promoting professional equality between women and men.
The actions focus on the feminisation of top management and the acceleration of career paths to bring women into key and responsible positions.
A specific recruitment program for female profiles for Top Management positions was launched in 2018 and is continuing in 2019, with 3 recruitments already completed.
Training the talents of tomorrow
The mission of PSA University is to transmit the Group’s knowledge, know-how and interpersonal skills throughout the world. It thus contributes to developing the Group’s “automotive engineering” and to developing the company’s culture towards greater agility and modernity. The University is based on theoretical training courses conducted worldwide with e-learning tools and practical training, designed to put the acquired skills into practice.
In 2018, PSA University obtained a new CLIP (Business Learning Improvement Process) accreditation for the next five years, joining a select group of accredited corporate universities around the world. During this accreditation, the proximity and understanding of the different professions by PSA University was highlighted, as well as the exploration of new methodologies and learning technologies, which makes the University a real agent of transformation.
In 2019, the University’s actions are structured around 3 axes:
- Culture and international: training to raise the level of English, develop a more international attitude and a learning culture.
- Business and efficiency: quality awareness (passport, conferences…), training on work efficiency and a simplification for the employee in identifying training to develop major technical skills.
- Transformation and change with a better acquisition of digital knowledge and skills, an appropriation of the Group’s values and a stronger involvement of managers in the transformation.
