International Pay and Benefits - France

Boeing understands that the Company's success depends on its people. As an investment in the well-being of our employees and the future success of the Company, our pay and benefit programs are designed to:

  • Attract, retain and reward employees in support of our global growth.
  • Be consistent with the business environment.
  • Engage employees in the achievement of our business goals.
  • Be in compliance with local laws and aligned with market practices.
  • Pay, Performance and Incentives

    Base Pay

    Base pay is established and reviewed based on a number of factors that include the job assignment, relevant experience, applicable education, the local market value of the position and affordability to the business. Base pay ranges are supported by a classification system that enables internal equity and external competitiveness by allowing comparison of jobs and pay levels to attract and retain the very best talent needed to grow our business. Base salary is evaluated yearly during salary review.

    Annual Incentive

    Our employees' efforts, creativity and commitment are key to Boeing's continued growth and success. In recognition of our employees' contributions, the Company may award annual performance-based incentives as well as other individual forms of recognition.

    Employee Incentive Plan

    The Boeing Employee Incentive Plan (EIP) asks for employees' commitment to think and act like owners of the business – and gives them a direct stake in that success. EIP provides cash bonuses of between 1 and 20 days of additional pay to eligible employees in the first quarter of the year if the Company achieves and/or exceeds annual economic profit objectives the previous year.

    Recognition Programs

    Boeing recognizes employees for their superior job performance and service achievement and for going beyond the scope of their assigned duties in several ways.

    Pride at Boeing

    Outstanding performance and contributions of individuals and teams are acknowledged through the Pride@Boeing Program. All employees and managers may nominate a coworker, customer, contingent labor personnel or supplier to receive a Pride@Boeing award, subject to program guidelines. Pride points can be used to purchase merchandise at the Boeing Store or from the Pride@Boeing catalog.


    E-cards are a fun, easy way to thank or congratulate a colleague or employee by e-mail for a recent effort or personal achievement.

    Cash Awards

    The Cash Award Program permits timely cash payments to recognize individual or team accomplishments that are the result of extraordinary performance, or performance that exceeds job expectations. Management has the responsibility for the nomination, approval and distribution of Cash Awards. Accomplishments are to be above or apart from the regular assignment and job expectations, or be the result of an extraordinary and sustained level of performance.

    Service Awards

    The employees of Boeing are the creative force behind technological achievements that touch lives every day. The Service Awards Program provides a means for the Company to both acknowledge these contributions and express appreciation for each employee's continued service to The Boeing Company.

    The Boeing Service Awards Program is designed to recognize the length of service of employees through personal acknowledgement by management and by offering employees a selection of awards for every five years of service, beginning at year five.

  • Benefits

    Managing Work and Life

    Maintaining work-life balance – as well as productivity – means having some time away from work. We offer employees a number of leave options to manage their life, including vacation leave, sick leave, bereavement leave, maternity leave, paternity leave, adoption leave and parental leave. We also recognize 10 public holidays, as well as a winter break in the period between December 24 and January 1.

    Looking Toward Retirement

    Long-term financial well-being is important. Planning for retirement takes time and attention to a myriad of details through the years.

    The French Social Security system provides old-age pension, survivors, disability, sickness pay, maternity, workers compensation, health care and unemployment benefits. The system is operated on a pay-as-you-go basis. For more information, please visit the French Social Security website.

    Health and Welfare

    A key component of overall well-being is physical health. Boeing provides comprehensive health care programs to help ensure that employees and their families are getting the care they need to maintain or improve health, including medical, disability, life insurance, business travel medical insurance and a seasonal flu shot.


    Boeing provides services that can support physical and emotional well-being, help its employees make sound, proactive decisions about health and well-being, be more productive at work and at home, and enjoy life more in general.

    Online Health Portal

    Boeing provides employees access to an online health portal designed to provide tools, resources and lifestyle improvement programs to manage and enhance their health and well-being.

    International Employee Assistance Program

    Almost everyone, at some point, could use the support of a professional who is trained to help with life's difficulties. Boeing employees and their dependents have confidential access to that kind of service at no cost to them through the International Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The program is prepared to assist employees and their dependents with any personal problems requiring help, including couples, parenting, family relationships and work-related issues; depression or anxiety; cultural transition and relocation adjustment issues; drug or alcohol abuse; and other mental health concerns.

    Online Health Assessment

    Offered each year, the online Health Assessment helps identify ways employees can improve their health and well-being.

    Boeing on the Move

    The Boeing on the Move physical activity challenge is an annual six-week program designed to get employees physically active and make movement a lifestyle habit.

    Quit for Life Tobacco Cessation Program

    Boeing's free and confidential tobacco cessation program, Quit For Life®, features telephone sessions with professional Quit Coaches®, web program integration, free nicotine replacement therapy products, and help through "Weight Calls" to help employees manage their weight while quitting.

  • Career and Development Opportunities

    Our commitment to lifelong learning helps our employees advance their careers within the Company. We provide employees at all levels with the opportunity to learn new skills in a myriad of ways.

    Employee Development Programs

    From leadership development to business planning to project management, employee development programs are available across the enterprise.

    Employee Rotation Programs

    Each year, the Company offers a series of rotation programs that provide the opportunity to develop different skills through one or more temporary assignments.


    A number of company-sponsored mentoring programs enable employees to develop their skills and enhance their leadership capabilities. Employees can go through a formal process or program to get a mentor or can simply ask someone who has skills or experience in an area they wish to grow.

    Boeing Leadership Center

    The Boeing Leadership Center (BLC) brings together all of our approaches for accelerating the development of current and future Boeing leaders, including simulations, skills development and real-world business challenges. This center of excellence helps our leaders share best practices and experiences, as well as strengthen their professional networks within the Company.

    Leadership programs offered at the BLC are also customized and delivered at international locations around the world. To date, programs have been offered in China, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Russia and the United Kingdom. Additional program offerings will be communicated as they become available.

    Learning Together Program

    Through Boeing's commitment to help employees pursue lifelong learning, eligible employees may receive educational assistance through the Learning Together Program.

    Boeing Library Services

    Boeing Library Services' mission is to provide employees with timely and authoritative information resources, knowledge management tools, research services, and copyright guidance in support of Boeing's vision, programs and projects.

    Some of the services available through the Library Services website include

    • Access to internal and external information including reports, documents, journals and a circulating collection of books.
    • In-depth research on request, including Ask a Librarian real-time, online chat reference.
    • Online, full-text access to engineering, technical and business-related resources.
    • Information organization and retrieval services.

Every effort has been made to provide accurate information on this Web site, but in the event of a conflict between this overview and the official plan documents or policies, the terms of the plans and policies will control. The plans and policies are also subject to legal review requirements.

The Company intends to continue benefit plans; however, it reserves the right to change, modify, amend or discontinue them without prior notice, notwithstanding any person's acts, omissions or statement to the contrary in accordance with local laws.
