A good work-life balance:
To favour a positive work-life balance (private, professional and community activities, etc.), INRAE can offer arrangements and services to facilitate the organisation of your work, support your family events and provide access to holidays and leisure and sports activities.
If you work full time there are two options that take into account how work is organised. Your chosen option impacts the amount of additional paid leave (RTT) days you will receive. Your options are:
- 36-hour-week cycle: you will receive 30 days of annual leave,
- 38-hour-40-minute-week cycle: you will receive 30 days of annual leave plus 15 days of RTT.
You have the option to request that your job be a part-time position. You can ask to work 50%, 60%, 70% or 80% of full-time hours. Your leave is reduced based on your working hours and the number of days worked per week.
Part-time work status is automatically granted (i.e., it cannot be refused by the administration) in the following situations: for the birth of each child up to age three, or the adoption of each child for three years following the child’s arrival in the home; to care for your partner, a child or a parent with a disability requiring a third person to be present or who has been the victim of an accident or serious illness; if the civil servant has a disability.
In all other situations, part-time status is granted depending on the department’s needs and may be refused.
To take account of changes in society and respond to the aspirations of staff who are looking to improve their work-life balance, INRAE offers opportunities for remote working.
Remote working means the voluntary and regular organisation of work where functions that might have been carried out by a staff member in the centre to which he or she belongs are completed off the premises, either at home or via a remote working platform.
In principle, remote working applies to all professions and all functions.
Eligible activities are defined on a case-by-case basis by the staff members themselves in agreement with the Unit Director and team leaders, based on a remote working application made by the staff member.
Remote working is based on voluntary choice by the staff member. It cannot be imposed on an staff member. Similarly, a staff member cannot force his or her structure to accept it.
INRAE offers to its employees various services linked to childhood and the family. In particular, institute pays a family salary supplement that varies according to the number of dependent children.
In addition, there are devices intended to promote the maintenance of the professional activity of parents who wish to do so and to harmonize their family and professional life.
INRAE also takes care to support parents during difficulties related to the child’s illness or disability.
