Crédit Agricole Assurances remains committed to gender equality

On 16 November, Crédit Agricole Assurances presented a status report on its action plan at a time when gender equality has never been more important for companies.

Frédéric Thomas, Chief Executive of Crédit Agricole Assurances, Christian Couchoud, Head of Human Resources, and Sofia Lopes, Manager of the HR Development Department, reviewed the initiatives that have been implemented by the Crédit Agricole Assurances group since 2013 and presented the actions to come.

Crédit Agricole Assurances remains committed to gender equality

Gender equality benefits everyone.

In 2014, 32% of managers at Crédit Agricole Assurances – men and women – responded to the “Trust and Equality” opinion survey organised by Financi’Elles, France’s biggest federation of networks of women managers in banking, insurance and finance. The lessons learned from this consultation firstly enabled Crédit Agricole Assurances to carry out an in-house diagnosis of the situation and then to determine the six major themes of its “Gender Equality” Action Plan:

1.         Establish indicators and make progress by implementing quantified commitments, particularly within the framework of the Crédit Agricole Group’s Medium-Term Plan, which sets a target of ensuring that 25% of the members of the governing bodies of the group’s various entities are women by 2020.

2.         Break down stereotypes by helping managers to develop a better understanding of how they develop and raise their awareness of the bias that they can cause in decision-making processes.

3.         Include gender equality issues in HR processes: recruitment, career management and promotion.

4.         Improve the organisation of work and working practices by developing initiatives to improve flexibility and the work-life balance, within the framework of the “Feel Good” and “Quality of Life at Work” schemes.

5.         Encourage the Group’s male employees to become as involved in the gender equality process as females.

6.         Raise the profile of gender equality by providing more information and promoting the actions carried out and the progress made.
