Promoting job creation while supporting technological change
In France, one in two employees in the private sector works in a large or intermediate sized company. As major players in the country’s economic dynamism, through AFEP, large companies put forward practical proposals for sustained employment growth.
Promoting job creation while supporting technological change is a priority for our country and AFEP’s members are highly motivated to achieve it. In order to develop, train and recruit staff, as well as adapt to their continually changing economic context, companies need security and predictability, in a business-friendly environment.
