(Dis)abled employees at Carrefour

For more than 10 years, Carrefour has been employing people with various degrees of disability. We were the first retail chain in Poland which hired hard of hearing people for customer service and cashier positions.

There are currently over 600 employees with disabilities in Carrefour teams. Their presence is of great value for both employees and customers of Carrefour stores. We promote the idea of supported employment and cooperate with EKON and PION organizations to ensure people with disabilities and at risk of social exclusion access to the open job market.

We have also begun our cooperation with the MIGAM Association which helps us to communicate with deaf and hard of hearing people.

Professional activation

Professionals at Carrefour

Professionals at Carrefour

Carrefour Poland employs 16.000 professionals who specialize in 120 different jobs and who are working in 800 stores of different formats. We believe that professionalism is important on every job position, and that is why we support our employees’ professional development.

In our company, there are experts in food, pastry chefs, specialists in logistics and finance, managers and employees with a university background in human and social sciences. Thanks to our new areas of activity and our innovative projects, we can offer job positions to experts in real estate, franchise, marketing, e-commerce and digital.

Cross-generational projects

Cross-generational projects

Currently, there are four generations of employees working together at Carrefour, so cross-generational communication is one of the main pillars of our HR policy. For us, generation change means understanding the differences and building teams on the basis of common shared values. Working in varied groups, in which people differ from one another, not only in terms of gender and professional experience, but also in terms of age, guarantees constant increase of professional competences. In everyday work, we use various forms of mentoring, shadowing and exchange of good practices, which enable us to transfer knowledge and experience between different employee groups.

Smak Kariery (Warsaw Vocational Training Centre)

Smak Kariery (Warsaw Vocational Training Centre)

We opened in Warsaw a modern vocational training centre called ‘Smak Kariery” for our current and future employees. It is there that young people, who have just begun their career in commerce, can meet experts from Carrefour and learn from their knowledge and experiences. In this place, students of vocational and technical schools, whose educational paths are close to the areas of Carrefour activity, can make their first steps in the professional world. At “Smak Kariery”, we organize various tasting events for employees, workshops and trainings. The centre is also a meeting place for managers and employees who normally work in different locations across Poland.

Social dialogue

Social dialogue

As a socially responsible company, we attach great importance to open dialogue with our social and business partners. We regularly meet with employee representatives and trade unions. We regularly organize job satisfaction surveys and cooperate with local partners for creating new job positions.

Diversity policy at Carrefour

Diversity policy at Carrefour

Diversity is one of the pillars of Carrefour’s strategy in Poland, both in terms of business model and human resources management. Diversity in our team helps us to better understand our customers.

We value our employees’ competences and skills, regardless of the person’s age, sex, place of living or fields of interest. We create job positions both for those who make their first steps in commerce, as well as for those who already have a solid experience. We offer career paths which meet the employee’s competences, fields of interest and geographic mobility.

Many of our employees took part in the ‘Carrefour Talents’ program and benefited from the company’s support for pursuing their hobbies.

The Diversity Charter

The Diversity Charter

Carrefour Poland was the first retail chain in Poland to sign the Diversity Charter in 2013. We committed ourselves to adopt a policy based on equal treatment and diversity management in the workplace as well as to popularize it among our business and social partners. Provisions regarding equality, cross-generational dialogue and professional activation, are especially important to us and are the fundaments of Carrefour Diversity Policy.
