Philippe pledged his commitment to implementing concrete actions designed to give people who are furthest from employment, access to jobs and secure career paths.
Sonepar CEO Philippe reaffirmed his commitment to the ‘Collective for a More Inclusive Economy’ by signing an initiative published by Les Echos this morning, Thursday 1st October. This Collective brings together many leading figures representing companies such as AXA, Schneider, Crit, CIC Sud-Ouest, Adecco, BNP Paribas, Korian, EDF, ENGIE, VEOLIA and SUEZ. Together, they pledged their commitment to implementing concrete actions designed to give people who are furthest from employment, access to jobs and secure career paths.
Faced with the current economic crisis, these companies are mobilizing to maintain employment through two inclusive and innovative social mechanisms:
- The Territorial Mobility Platform, which acts as an accelerator of professional transitions.
- Skills Development Path which aims to protect low-skilled employees whose jobs are threatened, by offering them a series of trainings which will prepare them for future careers.
“I am proud to be a part of this initiative in France for Sonepar, and to stand alongside leaders from the top companies in the economic world. It is our responsibility to invest in people’s potential and provide them with the opportunities they need to excel.”
