Boccard's DNA

Corporate Social Responsibility

Boccard guarantees equal opportunities and prepares the ground for the future

"In 2018, we very proudly celebrated “Our First 100 Years”, a symbol of the audacious and resolute route followed by our elders and former Boccard staff. 2019 opens a new road to “Our Next 100 Years” which will question every generation on our role in a global, open environment.

Convinced that our company’s future will be guided by challenges that we can take up collectively, we have decided to bring our customers, suppliers, and staff together, all as partners committed to guaranteeing equal opportunities for all and preparing the ground for the future. This is the major ambition that catalyzes our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitment.


Our commitment is Social, Solidary, Environmental and Ethical.
Understanding our aim, identifying the issues at stake, promoting and celebrating initiatives and systematically putting ourselves into question by means of new improvement strategies all help us to go forward together every single day."

Gender Equality index at Boccard

Because at Boccard, differences in culture, education or gender are considered as wealth, and only skills count. Gender Men-Women is naturally an integrated value within the company.

The gender equality index is a balance drawn up each year for companies with or more 50 employees in order to identify salary gap that may exists between male and female employees.

The scale is calculated out of 100 points, with total points awarded per category and indicator (see below).

If the company gets a score less than 75 points, it will have to implement corrective measures to improve its score: better pay for women, promotions, etc.

In 2018 (reference period between 1 December 2017 and 30 November 2018) Boccard scored 79, with the following results:

>Gender pay gap: 39 / 40
>Deviation in annual increases: 20 / 20
>Difference in promotions: 15 / 15
>Salary increases to women back from their maternity leave: 0 / 15
>Presence of women among the highest corporate income earners: 5 / 15             

Although this index's value is recognized as being high within the industry, Boccard is committed to implementing an action plan on specific areas of progress over the next few years, including the percentage of increased employees' salary coming back from their maternity leave for example.
