Our challenges: responsible and fair human resource management
Just as with sustainable, intergenerational cities that respect social diversity, our corporate social and societal approach must satisfy the challenges represented by the age pyramid, senior workers, gender equality and disabled workers.
Balanced recruitment, open to all ages
Icade’s employment age pyramid must ensure the best alignment between new generations and the transfer of skills. The average age of Icade employees, 43,5 for managers and 42 for non-managers, illustrates our human resource management policy. Each year, we recruit young graduates and welcome work-placement students during internship or temporary contracts. We also recruit fifty+ workers.
Attentive to the place of seniors in the workforce, Icade signed an agreement on senior employment that allows for arrangements such as second stage career interviews, access to home working and retirement preparation courses.
Our commitment to disabled workers
The ratio of disabled workers remains insufficient, as a result of which Icade undertook to increase the ratio in the framework of a partnership agreement with AGEFIPH: internal awareness campaigns, recognition of the quality of disabled workers, partnerships with companies in the protection of disabled workers’ sector including a training programme for buyers.
Attention to gender equality
Icade is particularly attentive to gender equality in the workplace. We have been working with trade unions to analyse the current situation in terms of:
- access, training and promotion conditions;
- work and employment conditions;
- work-life balance.
The analysis shows that gender equality and the wage policy are balanced, with an increase in women managers (23% in 2012) and three women in the Executive Committee.
