Gender equality

Within the framework of Monnaie de Paris 2024 strategic plan, Monnaie de Paris has decided to put in place an ambitious policy promoting gender equality.

An action plan, which complements our gender equality agreement, was drawn up in 2021, providing for actions combined around five themes:

  • hiring;
  • training;
  • promotion;
  • the articulation between professional life and the exercising of family responsibility;
  • remuneration

This overarching policy marks an evolution in our responsible and engaged employer policy with respect to the place of women in Monnaie de Paris. It is carried out with the means and the ambition necessary to enable Monnaie de Paris to rise to the level of best practice in terms of combatting inequality between women and men in the professional environment.

Actions in favour of disabled people

Monnaie de Paris implements a determined policy in favour of the inclusion of people with disabilities.

In addition to recruitment mentioning handicap-welcome in the adverts and actions carried out by the Handi-Health nurses/referrers to promote maintaining disabled employees in employment, partnerships are put in place with ESAT employment aid services.

Thus, within the context of a contract entered into with a regional ESAT, a team of five to ten handicapped workers (managed by a coordinator) come to the Pessac site to package collector's coins. For these persons, this professional experience represents an opportunity to enrich their skills, their knowledge and their know-how.

Handicap awareness actions are undertaken throughout the year in respect of the employees of Monnaie de Paris, notably on the occasion of the European Handicapped Persons Employment Week which takes place every year in November and in which Monnaie de Paris actively participates. The events organised on this occasion enable links to be created between the specialised external actors and the in-house handicap referrers. They also enable new ideas to flourish such as the organisation throughout the year of fun-based, participative handicap workshops.



Professional training is a capital challenge in a changing world. At Monnaie de Paris, training is considered to be a primordial axis, enabling employees to adapt to their positions, changes in professions to be anticipated and the development of skills and employability in the long term. It is a strategic lever in developing performance and know-how on the increasingly competitive employment market. Within this context, over two-thirds of our workforce are trained every year on professional but also transverse topics.

Priority to integration

So that new colleagues who join us every year feel integrated as soon as they arrive, we accompany them in this key stage of their career at Monnaie de Paris. This includes comprehension of our organisation, of our processes and of our manufacturing methods, notably via meetings and exchanges between the various departments and visits to the manufacturing workshops in Paris and Pessac.

A welcome day is organised for all new arrivals in order to discover the enterprise’s culture. Managers ensure the integration of their new colleagues. They pay particular attention to their arrival and settling-in conditions. In order to ensure optimal monitoring, an interview is systematically scheduled with Human Resources management six months after the arrival of new employees in the enterprise.

Work experience and internships

Monnaie de Paris implements an active policy in favour of the professional insertion of young people by way of work experience and internships.

Completing an internship or work experience at Monnaie de Paris provides an opportunity to discover the workings of the enterprise, its employees and the variety of professions. In partnership with schools, Monnaie de Paris implements actions in order to make the enterprise’s professions visible to students, notably thanks to the organisation of visits to the production workshops and museum.

Monnaie de Paris systematically watches over the coherence between the training followed and the internship assignment proposed. A tutor accompanies the intern/work experience student throughout their pathway and facilitates their apprenticeship so that their experience within the enterprise constitutes a key stage in the construction of their professional project.

Throughout the year Monnaie de Paris proposes internship assignments for all levels:

  • technical internship (from CAP to degree);
  • university internships (Baccalauréat +2 to Baccalauréat +5) ;
  • engineer internships (from manual worker internship to End of Studies Dissertation);
  • work experience assignments for levels ranging from Baccalauréat +2 to Baccaulauréat +5 of 12 to 24 months.
