Gender equality is a long-term commitment for the Eramet Group. Women account for 17% of the Group’s total workforce, and 24.7% of its management workforce. Action has been taken both Group-wide and locally in order to promote our careers to women and highlight the provisions of our collective gender-equality agreements, which have been signed at numerous sites in France.
In May 2018, the French government presented a comprehensive action plan to combat sexist and sexual violence and put an end to the gender pay gap. Legislative measures were adopted in the “Act for the Freedom to Choose One’s Future Career”, promulgated on September 5, 2018.
Pursuant to this law, the government devised a professional equality index composed of 4 to 5 indicators, depending on whether the company has less than or more than 250 employees, that gives a score out of 100. This index must be published annually.
The indicators are the following :
- Indicator 1: Gender Pay Gap
- Indicator 2: Difference in the distribution of individual raises
- Indicator 3: Promotional distribution gap (only in companies with more than 250 employees),
- Indicator 4: Number of female employees who received a raise upon return from maternity leave
- Indicator 5: Gender parity among the 10 highest paid employees
The reference period chosen by Eramet for this monitoring is the calendar year: from January 1 to December 31 of the year preceding the publication.
The results of the index for Eramet Group companies with more than 250 employees are as follows:
