Secondly, the company is deploying a universal social protection floor as part of the Michelin One Care Program. This provides a package of social benefits to all employees worldwide, focusing on three priorities:

  • offering time to welcome a child, with at least 14 weeks’ maternity/adoption leave and four weeks’ paternity/adoption leave at full pay
  • protecting the family of a deceased employee, with the payment of a death benefit equal to at least one year’s salary
  • an education annuity for orphans until the end of their post-secondary education, regardless of the employee’s length of service.
