JOBS AND THE WORKFORCE 2.2.1. For many years, the Group’s growth has been backed by a proactive employment policy of recruiting talented individuals and developing employees’ skills. External growth is also a strong driver of the Group’s development and increased business volumes. Thanks to the various acquisitions completed in 2019 (1,092 employees), the Group can offer a comprehensive response to its clients’ needs in the areas of transformation and competitiveness. At 31 December 2019, Sopra Steria Group had a total of 46,245 employees (45,153 employees excluding 2019 acquisitions), mainly based in Germany, Spain, France, India, the United Kingdom and Scandinavia, which together account for 89.8% of the Group’s workforce. The proportion of permanent contracts, which was slightly higher in 2019 (96.1% in 2019, compared with 95.7% in 2018), and that of temporary contracts, which was slightly lower (3.3% in 2019, compared with 3.6% in 2018, excluding interns) demonstrate the Group’s long-standing commitment to offer stable jobs while favouring the professional integration of young people on permanent contracts and on work placements (96.1% of fixed-term contracts were for students on work placements in 2019, compared with 96% in 2018).
The age pyramid illustrated below, showing the workforce breakdown for the Group (excluding acquisitions) by gender and age, has remained stable for the past three years, with a very slight improvement in the proportion of women, particularly in the 25-35 age bracket.
