Michelin Employer Brand

Respect for people is one of the Michelin Group's founding values. Your development, your self-fulfillment and your engagement are at the center of our efforts and our performance.

1.      Personal and Professional Development

We recruit you for your personality, your skills and your experience for a career in the company, not for a particular, definitive job. At each step in your career, in addition to your line manager's support, one of our 350 career managers guides you along your career path to help you build a personalized career plan for the long term. When it comes to building your career, your aspirations are just as important as the Group's needs.

Your career is built, step by step, around a core profession, with changes in responsibility, moves to other job fields and, why not, to other countries.

A mutual commitment

 

An individualized training program

You are trained at every stage of your career path. You have an individualized training program:

  • on your induction
  • each time you change positions
  • an on-going basis

Every day, an average of 4,000 people receive training within the Group. With 6.63 million training hours in 2014 (excluding Euromaster and TCI), we are above the average of the largest global companies.

High-quality management

In the course of your career, you forge a close, trust-based relationship with your manager.

Your manager is attentive, receptive and demanding, giving you the support and guidance you need to develop. This means:

  • your manager creates the right conditions for you to succeed in your job and progress by empowering you
  • every year, your manager sets your objectives, appraises your performance and works with you to define a Skills Development Action Plan whenever necessary
  • at key points in your career, your manager conducts a Periodic Development Review with you to identify development prospects and discuss them with your career manager.

At Michelin, we maintain a high standard of management through training and an annual assessment of managers.

We take an interest in your work

For each role you occupy, we define a clear job description with precise objectives. Our goal is to give you a job that fosters your continuous progress in our customers' service.

Because we believe that empoweredorganizations are the key to success, we give you the autonomy you need within your team and opportunity to express your views to accelerate this continuous progress. In 2015, 58,980 progress and innovation ideas were submitted by our team members.

Quality of working life

To support you in your everyday work, we make a point of creating a working environment that is modern, pleasant and safe, and maintaining a sound work/life balance. To this end, support measures are applied in the field, in every country. Depending on local requirements, this might mean flexible working, health and preventive medical programs, safety measures, and so on.

Fair compensation 

Like each of our employees, you receive individualized compensation that is fair and consistent with the local conditions in your country. To calculate it, we factor in:

  • your level of responsibility;
  • your performance;
  • your contribution to the Group's performance.

In addition, we add a contribution to your pension and to your social security coverage.
