There is something magical about energy! Fill up at the pump and the car is ready to roll; flick a switch and the house is flooded with light… but in fact, things are not quite as simple as they appear. What we commonly refer to as "energy" is derived from the transformation of raw, or primary, sources of energy. To learn more about these primary sources, play the "Energy Memory Game".
On March 5, 2010, AREVA became the first group in France to receive the Diversity Label from Afnor for all of its entities in France.
The Diversity Label constitutes recognition of an initiative anchored in the values that make up AREVA’s culture, to which its employees subscribe. Afnor’s precise, demanding requirements for the label were an opportunity for the group to examine all of its HR processes and to make sure they are in compliance with them.
"This label belongs to each of the group’s employees"
Philippe Vivien, member of AREVA’s Executive Management Board and Senior Executive Vice President of Human Resources
• Preliminary audit: interview of 200 diversity leaders in the group (July and August, 2009).
• Audit of: 12 AREVA entities, the HR corporate function, the Business Groups and the members of the Executive Board (December 2009 to January 2010).
• Presentation of Afnor’s report to the committee (French ministries, labor unions) and oral presentation by AREVA (March 2010).
AREVA is not resting on its laurels with the award of the Diversity Label. The group has identified several areas for action, to get everyone involved in diversity and equal opportunity.
They are included in the assessments and action plans of each of the group’s entities.
AREVA has invested in expanding its diversity initiative to other countries in which it is based. And, someday, a European diversity label may be in the cards.
