Equal opportunity for career development and diversity in hiring are inscribed in the Group’s fundamental values. In 2004, we signed the Diversity Charter. We have also eliminated all exclusion criteria from our hiring conditions.
We express our values of openness, diversity, and fighting against all forms of discrimination through a series of commitments.
01. Job insertion for struggling youth
We pursue a job insertion programme for young people ages 16 to 26 with few or no qualifications. From this perspective, we propose skills training and degree programmes. These young recruits account for about 10% of staff recruited in the Île-de-France region.
02. Work experience and apprenticeships
Since 2016, RATP has expanded its work experience programme by recruiting apprentices. Starting in September 2017, a training centre dedicated to apprentices will allow students to pursue their studies for specific RATP lines of business.
03. Gender equality
We have pledged that none of our employees will face delays in their careers due to maternity or adoption leave. We have set ourselves the goal of gradually increasing the percentage of women on our staff. This concerns two career categories in particular: drivers (women accounted for less than 10% of our drivers in 2009) and maintenance (less than 5% of our work force).
04. Integration of persons with disabilities
We have signed a protocol agreement with the labour unions on hiring persons with disabilities. At the same time, we make efforts to preserve the employment of staff affected by a disability.
05. Support for seniors
We develop career paths that optimise the second half of careers. We also set up systematic job assessments that aim to develop tutoring and knowledge sharing.
