Priority to employment and integration of young people

While facilitating the retention of employees over 50 years of age (46% of the workforce), La Poste has a dynamic employment policy for young people and is committed to recruiting 60% of its employees under 30 on permanent contracts.. La Poste is the leading player in the field of youth integration. In 2020, we have signed over 4 500 work-based training contracts, we have welcomed around 2 800 interns, of which 12% are interns from deprived urban areas.

A springboard for work-study students

With over 22 000 student apprentices hired between 2016 and 2020, La Poste invests in training schemes and tools. It is supported by CFA (Centres de Formation en Alternance), including three CFA for the group's own trades, called "Formaposte". They support 40% of the work-study students (from vocational training to 5 years of higher education) in all of the group's business sectors. Located in seven regions (Ile-de-France, PACA, Occitanie, Nouvelle Aquitaine and, since 2020, Auvergne-Rhône Alpes, Hauts-de-France and Pays de la Loire), these centres give young people access to the diverse professions of La Poste throughout France.

La Poste is also a partner of the Fondation Innovations pour les Apprentissages (Fipa), which promotes work-study apprenticeships in the new data and cyber security professions.
