Being the leader in Digital Security – and a business inspired by innovation – the way we manage and develop our people is critical to our future growth. Our strong ethical foundation helps us to attract and retain the most talented recruits.
Our approach to human resources
Our approach to managing Human Resources is based on '8 Pillars' that place people at the heart of our business: management by objectives; ethics and well-being; mobility;learning; recruitment; compensation and benefits; promotion from within; and diversity.
Global competition in our industry is fierce. We must attract the best people who are capable of developing new ideas for our customers. We have an ambitious talent acquisition strategy and, in 2017, we recruited over 1.920 people.
Learning and development
We depend on our employees to respond quickly to new technological challenges and developments. Our cutting-edge training opportunities range from the 'Gemalto University' - our global leadership development program - to a new eLearning platform, designed to increase efficiency in our processes and expand the delivery of pertinent and timely content to our employees.
Well-being and safety
The wellbeing and safety of our employees plays a vital role in the performance of our business. We prioritize four key areas to reduce safety risks: commuting and business travel; production equipment; ergonomics and musculoskeletal disorders (MSD); and hazardous substances, compounds and chemicals used in production. In 2017, we launched a Safety best practices program and trained 120 HSE managers and relays.
Diversity and engagement
Our diversity strategy includes fair and equal employment and career development practices. It ensures acceptance, respect and understanding for both co-workers and stakeholders. Our diversity activities are divided into three main areas: Cultural diversity, Gender equality and women's empowerment and Disability integration.
Diversity at Gemalto
We believe our workforce should reflect both the global nature of our business and the diversity of our customers and end-users, giving us the experience to explore new markets in an unbiased, open and intelligent way.
