JCDecaux is committed to providing opportunities for personal development (technical, hierarchical, geographical…), which allows all staff to achieve human and professional fulfillment through contact with customers and service to the company, and promote the emergence and recognition of each person's potential and skills.
Example of commitments
To help the inclusion of vulnerable youths in France, JCDecaux is a partner of the Fondation Agir contre l'Exclusion (Foundation for action against exclusion), collaborating in their Un but pour l'emploi (A goal for employment) programme. It is also a member of the Conseil National des Entreprises pour la Banlieue (National council of companies for deprived areas) created by the French government in 2009 and is also a partner of the Nos quartiers ont des talents association, which helps young graduates from working-class areas find employment. Each of the partnerships established by JCDecaux forms part of the Group's wider social and community policy in France, and is symbolic of its commitment to this policy.
We pay considerable attention to the views of our employees, which are expressed within an organised institutional framework. We attempt to reach formal agreements that are fair to the parties involved in all circumstances.
More than 60 collective agreements have been signed since 2006 for all of the French entities of which the most significant concerned JCDecaux SA and the employment of senior citizens, the classification of activities in the billboard production workshop and operational activities, social relations and triennial profit-sharing.
Collective agreements on working conditions and compensation were also negotiated in other countries which are key to the Group, covering almost 64% of the Group's total workforce.
The Group offers stable and competitive working conditions. The principles applicable to sharing of profits with employees depend on each subsidiary. In France, profit-sharing agreements apply to all employees, and can represent up to one month of salary. Since 2009, all of JCDecaux France's Company Savings Plans offer a "Solidarity" fund.
