Naval Group’s growth also depends on the economic dynamism of the naval defence sector in France. Generating more than 40,000 indirect jobs, the group is considered an essential stakeholder for the vitality of the employment areas in which it operates.
More qualified jobs and more stable contracts
Naval Group's workforce, in terms of qualification and stability, is indeed above the French average. The development of "core business" jobs and activities is an aspect that is closely monitored by the group. Maintaining skills is indeed essential in Naval Group’s strategy to guarantee national sovereignty, from essential skills to the most critical skills (nuclear propulsion, diving safety, submarine architecture, aviation installations and invulnerability). Preparing the skills of tomorrow is also the group’s responsibility.
Each year, several millions of euros are invested in self-financed Research & Development, industrial research-based training agreement (CIFRE) theses and partnerships such as competitiveness clusters or technology research institutes. Through this innovation effort, Naval Group contributes to improving the competitiveness of the economic fabric.
