Faced with changes in the market and new technologies, Papeteries de Clairefontaine must be agile to adapt quickly to demand. This requires supporting and anticipating the transformation of professions and the organisation of work.
In this moving environment, the recognition and transmission of know-how are essential, and the anticipation of retirements is primordial.
Work-study programmes, with around thirty people trained each year, are the primary source of recruitment.

In the middle of the Vosges forest, the Papeteries de Clairefontaine have existed since 1858 and employ more than 500 people within the Exacompta Clairefontaine group (3,000 employees, 70% of whom are based in France). Very close links have been forged over the years with the surrounding towns and villages. Since the beginning, the majority shareholders of the group have been part of the same family. For the employees, the tradition of working in the same factory as their parents is still a reality today, sometimes over several generations.
In the country of the Abbeys, Etival is a pleasant little town with a village centre equipped with all the necessary facilities and shops. Ideally located along the river Meurthe, Clairefontaine with its train station is on the Nancy-Colmar axis, 10 km from Saint-Dié, and is animated by a great diversity of sports and cultural associations.
