Working in Groupe PSA

Join a Global, Dynamic, Responsible and Innovative Carmaker.

Working in Groupe PSA means working in a dynamic group and helping to write a new chapter of automotive history. It also means being part of a human adventure, where the development of each individual’s talents and skills is vital to meeting the company’s commitments.

Opening new frontiers

The automotive industry is at the dawn of a new era. Markets are shifting to new regions, expectations are evolving, usages are changing, and technologies are improving. After achieving its economic turnaround, Groupe PSA is entering a new phase of development. Working in Groupe PSA means contributing to the opening of new frontiers in geographic markets and services.

An international Group

Present in 107 countries, the Group is a leader in its sector.  Six strategic regions are key to Groupe PSA’s industrial and commercial ambitions today: China, the Group’s No. 1 market; Europe, central to its growth momentum; the Middle East and Africa, the third mainstay of the PSA Group’s global activities, particularly with its return to Iran; India-Pacific, one of the most dynamic growth markets looking ahead to 2021; Eurasia, where Groupe PSA is seeking greater local integration of its production, notably in Russia; and Latin America, where the Group is focusing on Brazil and Argentina.

An innovative Group

Today we are moving from the era of ownership to the era of experience, from cars to mobility. Fundamental changes in the industry are leading PSA to reinvent itself to remain a leader in efficiency while guaranteeing its customers full satisfaction. The aim is not only to keep pace with market developments, but also to anticipate the disruptive leaps forward. That is why the Group builds and strengthens its capacity for innovation by making its processes more competitive and promoting creativity, in particular through Open Innovation.

A responsible Group

A European leader in reducing CO2 emissions, with an average of 104.4 g/km, Groupe PSA innovates each day to design and develop sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility. Alongside these efforts in its core business, the Group’s initiatives in the area of corporate social responsibility include involvement in the regions, where it works to reduce the environmental impact of its manufacturing facilities, and its innovative human resources policy based on continual dialogue with employees and their representatives.

All the Group’s employees are called on to take part in this adventure combining innovation and the search for excellence and based on trust and a commitment by all.

Putting talents and skills to work

Groupe PSA’s ability to successfully transform the company depends on its capacity to attract talented people and to develop and capitalise on the talents and skills of all its employees. Groupe PSA employees enjoy excellent opportunities to develop their skills and to put them to work building the Group. Responsible jobs and skills management enables them to participate in this process throughout their career with the Group.

  • Training and internal mobility

    Offering all employees training and internal mobility increases the skills available to the company. PSA University plays an important role in doing this. Designed to make tGroupe PSA a self-learning company, it is a key tool in the Group’s strategy and a means of transforming the corporate culture.

  • Capitalising on differences and talents

    Putting talents and skills to work also involves capitalising on differences. Diversity of profiles, backgrounds, and genders is an asset that contributes to social balance and the Group’s performance. The Group’s commitments to employees’ health, safety and well-being at work are fundamental to its responsibility as an employer. Encouraging employees to feel a sense responsibility for the Group’s performance is another way to mobilise their talents and skills.

  • New way of working

    A collaborative and flexible working experience

    In July 2016, Groupe PSA concluded the “New Momentum for Growth” performance agreement with five of its six trade unions, under which it pledged to offer employees flexible and collaborative ways of working, particularly by expanding teleworking.

    In September 2017, 10,000 Groupe PSA employees already on-board!

    • 3,000 employees had opted for teleworking up to three days per week by the end of September 2017
    • 7,000 employees can work remotely to 25 days per year thanks to the innovative and flexible remote working pass
    • The system has proven popular with employees and managers alike

    In January 2017, Groupe PSA went one step further by introducing the remote working pass, an innovative system under which employees can work offsite up to 25 days per year. To take advantage of the measure, all employees have to do is receive approval from the manager.

    Feedback on the new work arrangement has been positive, with 99% of teleworkers saying that they are satisfied with the system and emphasising that it saves time and improves concentration and efficiency. Their managers share their viewpoint.

    “I am thrilled with the success of this key measure of the ‘New Momentum for Growth’ agreement which reflects the transformation, modernity and dynamism of our Group,” said Xavier Chereau, Executive Vice-President, Human Resources. “In partnership with the employee representatives, we will continue to work to improve our employees’ work-life balance while at the same time seeking to increase efficiency. Our ambition is to offer greater flexibility in the way work is organised without compromising on collective efficiency.”

     

    Going forward, Groupe PSA aims to expand the number of teleworkers to 4,000 by 2019 and promote the remote working pass among the 17,000 eligible employees. These measures contribute to the Group’s performance by increasing the agility of its operating processes and improving quality of working life.
