Closing the gender gap
We have strong convictions on providing equal opportunities for all and zero tolerance towards discrimination and harassment. According to the French government, Lectra’s professional equality index score currently stands at 99/100.
Ensuring health and safety at customer sites
Our focus on employee wellbeing also extends to your company. Lectra’s R&D teams have designed equipment that includes high performance security features to ensure the safety of its operators. For example, our Virga equipment, launched in 2018, comprises a new radar system to detect user motion that shuts down immediately in the event of hazardous user behavior. This system can now be installed on Vector equipment.
These integrated safety systems come with on-site support provided by Lectra’s technical experts, who install, run and maintain the equipment. During the first training session, we will go through all the safety rules with your operators. Lectra’s technical experts perform check-ups on your equipment regularly, including all installed safety systems.
Onboarding and training
For over twenty-five years, Lectra has invested significantly in training its employees, to ensure upward mobility by enhancing their knowledge and skills. Our Lectra Academy, Sales Effectiveness and Customer Success Enablement teams have carefully designed a series of programs for our staff that range from orientation sessions such as Lectra Together, to targeted high-level training workshops on specific software and equipment.
Educating the next generation of fashion professionals
We share our knowledge and expertise with more than 800 schools and universities worldwide as well by providing software licenses and training to students, and serve as a platform showcasing emerging creative talent to industry professionals.
Creating a positive and vibrant work environment
We place great emphasis on maintaining healthy, safe and good working conditions for employees in technical facilities, such as factories and R&D laboratories by auditing these places regularly with a safety engineer. To allow more flexibility, we have also established a new work-from-home policy for our employees.
We have elected a group of employee representatives at our headquarters in France who are in charge of seven missions: training, meal options, social fundings, social activities, housing, equal employment and career advancement opportunities, health and safety.
