Our working environments

They are many and varied, depending on the teams, needs, areas, cultures and countries.
The work environment promotes well-being at work, autonomy and empowerment but also the balance between professional and private life.

Our teams deploy new tools to support projects

To meet the challenges of innovation and competitiveness in an accelerating world, the transformation of our ways of working is fundamental.
Our We@Work approach aims to improve the experience of our employees to better develop, support them in their digital transformation and adapt their workspaces.

To accompany each one, in its diversity and its difference, it is our tools and our workspaces that adapt.

on our Digital Culture platform to improve our ways of working (Sales Force, Big Data, Social Networks, ...)

 

Digital transformation impacts us every day whatever our job.

To successfully tackle it, the Michelin Group has implemented the necessary tools to develop the employee's digital culture, in particular through the "Digital Culture" e-learning platform.

But the digital transformation is, above all, tools to exchange, create, collaborate and innovate on a daily basis.

We @ Work is a set of collaborative tools that make us progress in a fun and enjoyable way, towards more empowerment and innovation to create tomorrow.

 

We adapt spaces according to professional and personal needs

From our factories to our tertiary sites, from Clermont-Ferrand to Shanghai, Michelin is distinguished by a collaborative approach to modernizing living, working and rest areas.

To make you live an experience at the forefront of new ways of working tomorrow, we propose spaces offset, contemporary in the service of collective intelligence.

The spaces dedicated to conviviality, sport and relaxation will also allow you to take a deep breath.

 

A glimpse of workspaces in the Michelin Group...

 

Creativity rooms for tackling issues from a different angle

From Central Office to the country sites, creativity rooms are designed with the look and feel of a private home to put people at ease. These areas have draw-on wall spaces for giving free rein to the interplay of ideas. Furnished with colorful contemporary-designer furniture and decorated with a vintage touch, they create a casual, relaxed atmosphere around sofas, armchairs and coffee tables to encourage an exchange of ideas. Meetings are not like they used to be: now people speak openly and dare to ask questions, there is real dialog and trust, and decision-making is easier. The setting encourages people to look at issues and projects from a different, more creative angle and draw on collective intelligence.

 

Quiet spaces

Comfortably nestled in soundproofed sofas, employees can leave behind their everyday environment and take a break, read, focus, read the daily press, have a hushed conversation or even organize an informal meeting with an unobstructed view over "Les Carmes" campus in Clermont-Ferrand. 

 
Areas set aside for joint endeavors

Cooperation, co-construction, co-innovation... today joint endeavors and cross-company teams are commonplace in the company. Our teams are connected, multidisciplinary, multi-project and open to the outside world - and they have designed a collaborative area that fits their goals and the way they work.

Caster-mounted furniture allows for a very modular layout. Floor-to-ceiling draw-on walls enclose team spaces and give team members ample room for expressing their creativity.

This modern environment would not be complete without a coffee corner, where team members can feel free to chat with colleagues over a cup of tea or coffee.

 

Self-managed rest and recreation rooms

There are more and more initiatives in production plants to rethink rest and recreation rooms.

 

Gyms open to employees' families

At the Zalau plant in Romania, a gym has been set up on the site so that our employees can keep fit.

On certain days of the week, the gym is also open to employees' children.

This new area meets demand from our staff and is managed directly by the employees themselves, giving them a greater say and responsibility in workspace management.

 

Outdoor meetings: To dream bigger

In Clermont-Ferrand, which enjoys above-average levels of sunshine, there is a growing trend towards outdoor meetings at tables and benches installed in the grounds. No more meetings cooped up inside: employees file outside for some fresh air and fresh ideas in a leafy setting, with background noise provided by the stream that crosses the campus. They carry out whatever equipment they need, flipchart and whiteboards, and discuss, make decisions and think big!
