Our human resources policy

Expert and dynamic, our teams are competitive in all the major areas of modern cosmetology. Motivated by the human values of responsibility, integrity and the desire for progress, the men and women who work for SILAB, among the finest of their generation, deploy their talent at the service of the company.

Reception and integration

A personalized welcome enables our new staff members to adapt rapidly to their professional environment.
During the first weeks they benefit from an integration pathway adapted to their position, and the assumption of their duties is supervised by a dedicated tutor. A training course consisting of different modules that enables new staff members to become immersed in the heart of our business and our corporate culture is offered to them during their first year.

Training

For this objective SILAB consecrates over 6.5% of its wage bill to the professional training of its staff members. With a very high initial training level (25% engineers or researchers, 60% high level technicians), the challenge for the company is to remain on the forefront of the latest scientific discoveries, integrate new technologies and ensure the development of all these professions. Individualized training programs are set up each year, which enable the continuous raising of our company's level of competence.
The involvement of our expert employees enhances our TRAINING LIBRARY each year with new internal training modules and each staff member's professional pathway is accompanied by a computerized TRAINING PASSPORT.
SILAB UNIVERSITY invests in youth training: accommodates trainees, gives courses in schools, offers contracts of apprenticeship, professional training contracts and CIFRE (industrial research training agreement) agreements for young doctoral students, for example.
Our policy concerning GPEC (projected management of jobs and competences) enables us to plan ahead for our future jobs.

Management

The objective of our managerial policy is to support the development of our staff members according to the company's strategic plans. Because the success of each individual ensures the success of everyone, individual goals that are set each year ensure our staff's performance and motivation.

A senior program, actions that support the equality between Men and Women, diversity, the Disabled or youth, are other facets of our Human Resources policy that is in keeping with our very strong values of team spirit, conviviality, respect, tolerance, a good quality of life in the working environment and personal achievement.
