For the first time, last July, Capital unveiled “an exclusive ranking of the companies most committed to fighting all forms of discrimination, thanks to a vast survey conducted among their employees and those working in their sector of activity”.
We were very pleased to see that we were included in this ranking and we are very proud of that!
With a score of 7.40/10, we are 190th in the overall ranking (out of 6,000 companies), and 8th in the Services sector.
“We are proud to be included in this first ranking,” says Pierre Monteaux, the Group’s HR Director. “In order to develop and innovate, a company must be attentive to diversity within its workforce: diversity of ideas, opinions, culture, etc. Our values and our commitment consist in enhancing access to employment and increasing the chances of promotion for minorities: we have long favoured the integration of people with disabilities, or those who are far from employment, for example prisoners.
We have also deployed a policy of outsourcing or insourcing with Adapted Enterprises and ESATs. In 2022, this will represent 530 people overall, i.e. an inclusion rate of 23%, where our target was 22%.
Our dynamic is also strongly based on different cultures (5 countries), origin and ethnicity, age, nationality and country of origin (22 nationalities). This policy has been in our DNA for over 30 years and is a way of maximising the potential of everyone in our Group, driving creativity and growth.
One of Cordon Group’s core values is to put “People at the centre”, and many of our CSR commitments flow naturally from this. We are convinced that the innovation and the spirit of conquest that characterise us cannot be achieved without diversity!
Among our CSR actions and objectives, we can note :
- Our commitment to non-discrimination: each manager receives training to raise awareness of situations of harassment, whether moral, sexist or sexual.
- A gender equality index of 88/100 in 2021 (an increase of 5 points compared to 2020)
- A strong commitment to increase the number of women among managers (from 26% (2021 data) to 45% in 2025)
- An inclusion rate of 23% in 2021 (2025 target achieved and exceeded)
To further formalise our approach, in March 2022 we decided to sign the diversity charter.
