Our HR policy
We are an organization on a human scale. We are committed to fostering the professional fulfilment of our salaried employees, and to support them in their career development. We take great care to integrate as best we can our new staff members, to forge links between our different specialisms, and to attract new talents.
We encourage the development of skills: nearly 80 % of our salaried employees access at least one training course a year. Every year, Nantes ‒ Saint Nazaire Port devotes the equivalent of over 4 % of the payroll to vocational training, thereby also helping to maintain and to improve the level of expertise.
We support the career development of each of our staff members. We therefore encourage internal mobility. Last year, nearly 50 % of vacancies for shore-based and sea-going personnel taken together were filled in this way.
Social and Professional Inclusion
Ever since 1998, we have been committed to encouraging the social and professional inclusion or reintegration of persons excluded from the workplace. The inclusion unit team comprises 4 to 6 salaried employees every year. Each team member is given a 12- to 24-month "employment skills pathway" contract, so as to be able to reintegrate the world of work more easily. Following their experience with Nantes − Saint Nazaire Port, two thirds of the members of personnel that we have assisted through this scheme have subsequently found a job or have gone on to vocational training leading to a qualification.
