The decrease in the number of staff compared to the previous year is due to the global restructuring process we are carrying out at the company, and also to divestment of non-strategic assets.

 

Despite this reduction, the percentage of permanent contracts remains steady at 91%. The company's overall percentage of female employees is 35%.
