Mutuelle des Motards signs Companies and Neighborhoods Charter, co-sponsored by Montpellier Métropole and the French government, in partnership with Face Hérault. Objective: facilitate hiring people from priority neighborhoods.
Other priority focus: handicapped peopleBy signing the Charter, along with forty other companies in the Montpellier Métropole area, AMDM made a two-year commitment for “realistic” actions and results. The company sponsored Naouel, a young woman changing her career orientation seeking a work-study contract, by hosting her once a month.
Co-sponsoring the program, Montpellier Métropole helps the company set up its approach.
“Naouel found a four-month certificate course to become an assistant,” says Nolwenn Stéphant.
Five other managers and employees at AMDM already mentor people seeking jobs or changing careers. That is just the beginning. The action plan is much broader and will further expand to include other priority groups of people, such as handicapped people.
“Local authorities put us in contact with institutional partners and associations such as the Local Mission, which informed us about the Youth Guarantee mechanism,” adds the development manager. “We welcomed Leila for ten days to provide her with a preliminary professional experience.”
“There is potential in this diversity. Creating opportunities for people to meet with the company will help overcome inequalities for accessing jobs,” points out Nolwenn Stéphant.
