An ambitious work-study programme for 2009-2010
At a meeting of the PSA Peugeot Citroën Central Works Council, Denis Martin, Executive Vice President Human Resources, announced an ambitious programme to help bring young people into the workforce. By the summer of 2010, PSA Peugeot Citroën intends to sign 2,000 workstudy contracts, 2,100 skills-acquisition contracts, 3,000 internship agreements and 200 VIE coop placements for a total of 7,300 job opportunities for young people.
The programme is designed to prepare the competencies the Company will be needing in the future in a broad range of business areas, skills sets and qualifications, while giving young people a real chance to envision their future and enter the workforce by discovering first-hand the jobs and values of a large manufacturer like PSA Peugeot Citroën.
Senior employees will be particularly involved in mentoring and sponsoring the students and interns, to foster the transmission of skills and facilitate orientation. A meeting has been scheduled with employee representatives to discuss this topic.
The programme also includes a significant number of measures targeted to young people with few or no qualifications. These individuals will be offered the opportunity to learn how to operate industrial systems, with a minimum of 150 hours of training during the year, of which 70 hours devoted to Lean Manufacturing. Those who successfully complete the training module will earn professional certification in metalworking.
The programme received unanimous labour union approval at the Central Works Council meeting.
