PUTTING PEOPLE AT THE HEART OF OUR GROWTH
Our teammates’ workplace well-being is one of Decathlon’s primary concerns. Our company strives to implement labour and human resources policies in line with our values. At Decathlon we believe that happy, engaged employees contribute to a company’s performance over the long-term.
In 2018 the Quality of Life at Work (QVT) team continued expanding their efforts in France with help from their network of local specialists (316 QVT specialists in 2018). The goal is to have one specialist at each site who can oversee the following issues: disability, inter-generational cooperation, gender equality and quality of life at work, psychosocial risks and social engagement.
This year 50% of teammates around the world stated that they enjoy coming to work (total responding “yes, absolutely”). This indicator, which is central to our human resources policy at Decathlon, is measured using an in-house barometer that helps our teams take stock of the current situation and implement suitable action plans to ensure that everyone enjoys coming to work.
Decathlon once again topped the Great Place to Work rankings for France, coming in first in the “Best Workplace with more than 5,000 employees” category. This ranking, a benchmark recognizing the companies employees like to work for, confirms our teammates’ satisfaction.
