- A continuous effort for employment
The total workforce of Le Groupe La Poste, in France and abroad, averaged 251,249 workers in 2016.
In a challenging environment, La Poste is continuing its employment efforts, with more than 10,000 new permanent position recruits in France in 2016, 4,463 of which within the parent company (compared to 3,588 in 2015).
Among these recruits, 74.4% came from the company's recruiting grounds: fixed-term contracts, work-study contracts, "emplois d'avenir" ("jobs with a future") contracts.
La Poste also continues to actively support the integration of young people into employment: almost 60% of permanent contracts were people under 30 years of age. The group also signed 5,736 work-study contracts in 2016.
The average age of employees keeps increasing slightly at 47.2 years, with 47% of postal workers over 50 in 2016.
