This index evaluates on 100 points based on 4 indicators for companies with less than 250 employees.Penalties appy when the score of 75 points is not reached after 3 years from the first publication.

Out of 100 points, the CLS obtains an excellent score of 94.

These results indicate avenues for progress, and the overall score, while high, cannot be satisfied. We are mobilized for diversity, equality and parity. An action plan has been put in place focuses on 3 areas of action : effective compensation, recruitment and professional training . The CLS thus affirms it’s desire to maintain the principle of equality and prevent the risk of unjustified deviations. It intends to promote diversity within the different categories by acting from the moment of recruitment (neutral and egalitarian process, balance of applications…).

It sets the objective of aligning the rates of access to vocational training for all employees and female staff, within each professional category. The action plan is filed with DIRECCTE, and a summary is posted in the workplace.
