The group is launching a university dedicated to the acquisition of new skills in electrification, data analysis and cybersecurity, and the recycling of vehicles and their batteries: ReKnow University. Initially dedicated to the Group's employees, ReKnow University has already prepared more than 2,600 employees for the jobs of the future by 2021. By 2025, more than 12,000 employees will be trained in new skills related to electric, connected and autonomous vehicles and associated technologies.
We see employability as something beyond the group’s boundaries. The company’s foundations, both in France and internationally, will provide support for initiatives that foster inclusion through employment. Our 2025 ambition is to have given support to 20,000 people, be they young and in school, or long-term unemployed adults.
"Caremakers": inclusive mobility solutions to facilitate access to employment in France. We wish to promote mobility throughout all regions. Mobility can be a source of inequality and is sometimes a necessary hurdle to overcome in getting, keeping, or training for a job. Renault Group has entered a partnership with Pôle Emploi (French job-seekers agency) and a micro credit agency to provide unemployed people – who are unable to contract a bank loan – with a leased vehicle. In 2021, 509 vehicles were ordered and financed through this programme in France. The Group plans to increase the number of beneficiaries of this initiative tenfold by 2025 by mobilising its sales network in France and other countries.
CAREMAKERS Invest is an investment company of Renault Group accredited as a 'Socially Useful Solidarity Enterprise.' For over 10 years, it has been partnering with businesses (associations, cooperative societies, etc.) that develop mobility solutions to fight exclusion and promote employment for people facing difficulties. Caremakers Invest integrates leaders representing various professions within the Group into its governance, along with a representative from the workforce and independent experts. Additionally, Renault Group employees have the opportunity to contribute by investing their savings in the dedicated Employee Mutual Fund (FCPE) named 'Renault Caremakers Solid'Air..
