An inclusive group

Combatting exclusion is one of the priority commitments that the Cofidis Group has made to its customers, its teams, and society at large. Thanks to the active participation of our employees and many partnerships between charitable organisations and each of our subsidiaries, the group is committed, active, and a driving force.

In the Cofidis Group, diversity is an immense human and cultural richness that contributes to the group’s success.

Diversity,
one of the group’s most precious assets

Diversity has always been a major group commitment. Cofidis France signed a diversity charter in 2010, designated a dedicated contact for group diversity affairs in 2012, and in 2016 appointed a dedicated contact in each of its entities for matters relating to disabilities.

To give another example, we currently have employees of 20 different nationalities working together every day at the group’s campus in France. Training sessions for managers are regularly organised to promote inclusion, collaboration, and living together harmoniously to make diversity an asset not only to the group, but to everyone.

Engaging with recent graduates

The Cofidis group focuses on students by offering many work-study, apprenticeship, internship, and summer job contracts. 86 work-study programme students are currently working alongside their mentors at one of the group’s four French entities.

Treated as employees in their own right, they work on real-world assignments with real responsibilities and take part in many cross-departmental projects.

A strong commitment
to employees with disabilities

In France, employees with disabilities make up 4.5% of the workforce. This figure increases every year, and we continue to work towards making progress through a number of awareness-raising initiatives (escape games, participation in DuoDay, etc.) and by taking part in specialised recruitment forums.

Grâce au service DEAFI, nous nous adaptons à nos clients sourds ou malentendants en leur permettant d’échanger avec des conseillers en langue des signes et ainsi d’accéder facilement à nos offres et services. Sans parler de l’équipe cycliste handisport créée en 1997 et médaillée à de nombreuses reprises.

Moving towards gender equality

Women occupy a very significant place in the Cofidis group, making up nearly 70% of our workforce. That is why the group is committed to promoting and improving gender diversity and professional equality.

Our excellent results in this regard are reflected in the gender equality indices, which are compulsory for French entities: 94/100 for Cofidis France, 91/100 for Monabanq, 79/100 for Creatis, 99/100 for Synergie.

Like Inclusion Keep Engaged (#LIKE): a participative and engaging approach

The COFIDIS Group relies on its employees to propose ideas, champion them, and thereby contribute to the Group’s transformation. The initiative was launched two years ago and has been enriched by suggestions put forward by some 50 employees.

The 5 pillars
of the #LIKE approach

The aim is to optimise our products and services to make life easier for as many people as possible. We adapt to meet the needs of people who are marginalised or facing hardship. Our collective challenge is to take people with all sorts of backgrounds and life experiences into consideration.

Since its creation, the group has implemented a human resources policy based on equal opportunities and diversity. Our aim is to reinforce this responsible approach by promoting training, employability, and fulfilment for all.
Opening the group’s doors and inviting people to meet with our employees and learn about our expertise and energy—particularly long-term job seekers—is part of our strong commitment to social and economic development.
In addition to financial partnerships with charitable organisations, we have also set up skills sponsorship programmes led by our teams on the ground. This not only strengthens our commitment to human rights, but also broadens the horizons of our employees and enables them to nurture their commitment within the group and society at large.
In order to consider not only the well-being of everyone as a whole, but also as individuals, the group pays particular attention to the needs of employees in difficult situations, whatever that may entail. In this way, the group is committed both to and through its employees.
