VIDEO – Whereas the Court of auditors has published last Monday a report criticizing violently the policy to be “insufficiently rigorous” management of the group, a survey reveals salaries, exorbitant of certain employees.
The public audiovisual sector remunerates its employees as well as the private sector: this is without doubt the revelation of a major survey conducted by BFM Business. Example: Delphine Ernotte, CEO of France Télévisions, is paid a fixed salary of 322.000 euros gross per year, with a variable bonus of up to 78,000 euros, or a total of 400,000 euros gross per year. In comparison, it is the same salary as Rémy Pfimlin, former CEO of the group, but much more than that of Patrick de Carolis, who received 240,000 euros of fixed-and a bonus that could reach up to 60,000 euros.
Delphine Ernotte said that she was the double of his current salary when she was working at the direction of Orange France: it touched on so about 800,000 euros gross per year, which is two times less than the current CEO of Orange France, Stephane Richard, who is paid a fixed salary of eur 900,000 gross fixed plus a variable bonus up to the same amount. Delphine Ernotte key nevertheless the highest salary of the audiovisual group.
many of his peers also have wages very comfortable: according to the report of the Court of accounts, 191 employees of the group would affect more than 120,000 euros gross per year and 547 employees more than 96,000 euro gross per year. Similarly, the number of employees (PERMANENT full time) with gross annual earnings greater than € 70,000 has risen by nearly 57% between 2009 and 2013 and amounted to 1415 in 2015, compared to 899 in 2011. Such fees significant be explained by the number of executives employed by the group: at France Televisions, the frames represent 79% of the technical and administrative staff, and 26% of the journalists (or even 40% in the direction of the information). An extremely high rate when you know that the executives represent approximately 18% of the active population of france.
The management policy of the group sharply criticized
The Court of auditors has published last Monday a report harshly criticizing the policy of management of the audiovisual group, which it considers are “insufficiently rigorous”. The Court denounced “a reorganization inaboutie” and calls for a “reduction of expense”. The Court considers that France Télévisions has “not been able to significantly reduce its workforce”: the group now employs 5 500 people in full-time equivalents, a number that has increased by 6% between 2009 and 2015. Worse, the personnel expenses have increased by 13% between 2009 and 2015, despite two voluntary redundancy schemes. If the number of permanent positions has been reduced to 9 932 jobs in full-time equivalents, the employment non-permanent rest, according to the Court, “inadequately controlled”.
The report also denounces the accumulation of contracts between a CDI and a CDD/CDDU (fixed-term contract of use), such as those of employees on permanent contracts paid at the same time by production companies private: 182 employees on permanent contracts in France Télévisions have in parallel a CSD or a CSD in use, that is to say, a compensation of intermittent. The report presents the case of an employee having entered into 108 CDD/CDDU.
Another opaque within the group: certain employees hired on permanent contracts, full-time, and paid accordingly by France Télévisions, are at the same time being paid by production companies to be private.” Delphine Ernotte itself would therefore be less well paid than some coaches stars of public service.
