Diversity at TechnicAtome
The use of a diversity of individual profiles in the company, along with attention to the fact that no form of discrimination exists or is perpetuated for any reason whatsoever are the two guidelines of TechnicAtome’s social action for diversity.
Sabine Escudero - Diversity manager
We believe that the quest for diversity, in addition to being a duty in the face of the mosaic-like nature of the society that we live in, is also an argument that helps to maintain our professional efficiency, because of the pride of belonging that it inculcates in all our staff. And we also believe that the ability of the company to guarantee that no-one in any way risks being a victim of personal discrimination at any point in their career is an essential argument to maintain fidelity and the will of its staff to merge into a single entity. Fair treatment, regardless of sexual orientation, age, origin, disability, and of course gender, is one of the cornerstones helping the company to run smoothly and efficiently.
In keeping with the terms of the law of February 28, 2017, to verify that there is no discrimination of any kind when hiring, recruiters and managers are regularly made aware of its various possible facets. Training courses on the quality of life at work, on psycho-social risks, and on diversity in general, are given to all managers.
Concernant la question du handicap en entreprise, chaque année des évènements sont organisés sur les différents établissements de TechnicAtome afin de faire connaître, faciliter l’intégration, promouvoir les personnes en situation de handicap, et dépasser les différences.
TechnicAtome makes sure to use block release training in the company every year. This is not without practical organizational difficulties in times of increasing staff workload, but helps to prepare the future in an exemplary way and to maintain the best relations between schools and the company.
TechnicAtome se situe à la croisée de l’industrie de Défense et de la filière nucléaire nationale, et l’ingénierie constitue la majeure partie de ses activités. Chacune de ces caractéristiques suffirait à placer l’entreprise face à un vivier de recrutement majoritairement masculin. Le recrutement et l’entretien d’une proportion significative de femmes (aujourd’hui de l’ordre du quart) au sein de l’effectif sont donc l’objet d’une démarche active, qui commence au recrutement, et qui consolide ses effets en veillant à ce que ne s’insinue aucune forme de discrimination salariale ou au moment des promotions. L’index de mesure mis en place par le décret du 8 janvier 2019, et qui vise à mesurer la situation de l’entreprise sur le plan de l’égalité professionnelle entre les hommes et les femmes, attribue à TechnicAtome un résultat de 89/100. Ceci témoigne d’une situation convenable et qui nous encourage à maintenir notre engagement et nos actions.
The balance between work and private life is another area that we monitor, with the conviction that this is also a way of securing long-term equality between men and women and between the different generations at TechnicAtome. To achieve this we use various means, such as dedicated concierge services or year-round reservations in day nurseries. We also make no secret of the importance we attach to allowing our staff to switch off their computers outside normal working hours, and conversely many of them use teleworking, on an ad hoc or regular basis depending on the needs of their work.
To conclude, the quest for diversity and the consolidation of a harmonious mix are for TechnicAtome both a duty and a source of collective enrichment. Given the specific features of our business, this requires long-term commitment from our management.
Our key figures
Overall, more than 100 permanent positions are available, and as many proposals for block release training, particularly in the various fields of nuclear engineering for compact reactors, fuels and associated facilities.
