Malakoff Médéric Foundation
The Malakoff Médéric Handicap Foundation takes action in favour of access to the employment of disabled people. Set up in 2013, the Malakoff Médéric Handicap Foundation confirms the historic commitment of the Malakoff Médéric group in favour of people with disabilities. Its aim is to make access easier and to maintain employment for people with disabilities. To do so, it supports innovative projects, carries out studies through its Observatory for the employment of disabled people and shares best practices with companies. Firmly rooted in concrete action and with the slogan: Soyons la génération de l’action! (Let’s be the Action Generation!), the Malakoff Médéric Handicap Foundation is backed by the commercial network of Malakoff Médéric and its 200 000 client companies.
The theme of access to employment Even today, the access to employment of people with disabilities – a fundamental right – is still too little respected. Unemployment figures are rising continually and with them, the number of disabled people who are looking for work: + 5.3% in one year (Pôle Emploi 2016). By taking up the issue of employment, the Malakoff Médéric Handicap Foundation seeks to contribute to overcoming obstacles by changing attitudes and behaviour. “The protected sector no longer attracts young disabled students, who have often deployed a great deal of energy throughout their studies to stay in an ordinary environment. How can you then say to them, ‘Stay at home, society isn’t ready to welcome you?!’”, asks Marie-Lucile Calmettes, the Managing Director of the Malakoff Médéric Handicap Foundation.
Projects to make use of potential All the employment projects supported by the foundation aim at helping disabled people to make use of their professional potential in companies or as independent workers, so that they can find a place on the job market. These projects must also have the capacity to be reproduced and to be sustainable. One of the most recent initiatives, the TIH Business project, is supported by the UPTIH (Professional Union of Independent Disabled Workers). It allows companies and independent disabled workers to make contact easily via a dedicated internet platform. “It’s a shop window provided to all independent disabled workers to highlight their skills”, explains Didier Roche, the president of the UPTIH.
The employment observatory at the service of companies To guarantee its choices and act in an optimal way, the Malakoff Médéric Handicap Foundation is backed by its Observatory of employment of disabled people in companies. Since 2015, the observatory has carried out or published around ten documented studies or enquiries on the theme of employment. The quantitative and qualitative studies, carried out in 2015 and 2016 with 650 client companies of the Malakoff Médéric group and over 750 disabled people, give precise indicators both on the situation of employment, the approach and the needs of French companies. You can consult all the documents produced by the Observatory of employment in the press section of www.fondationhandicap-malakoffmederic.org/
Hand in hand with the Disability Mission at Malakoff Médéric The Malakoff Médéric Handicap Foundation embodies the values of the Group, Commitment, Responsibility and Solidarity, in close collaboration with its Disability Mission. Malakoff Médéric was awarded the “Diversity” label in 2014 (renewed in 2016), and goes beyond the legal percentage of 6% of disabled employees. For the Foundation, as well as for the Group, the goal is the same: that people with disabilities should not be seen as a burden, but as a lever of performance for the company employing them, and as a medium of humanity for the teams they join !

About Malakoff Médéric Malakoff Médéric is a major player in complementary social protection, with two distinct roles (figures from 31 December 2015):
- personal insurance (health, life assurance, complementary pensions), with a recurrent turnover of €3.8 billion, €4 billion capital stock and a solvency rate amounting to 5.5 times the regulatory requirements. Malakoff Médéric insures the health and provides life assurance for 203 000 companies and 6.6 million people and their families.
- management of complementary pensions with €10.3 billion of contributions, a task of general interest carried out on behalf of Agirc-Arrco with 198 000 companies, 3 million employee contributors and 2.9 million pensioners.
Since the group is a non-profit-making, jointly administered, mutual benefit company, its governance guarantees the respect and defence of the interests of both companies and employees.
The European leader in private insurance, the Generali group is one of the main international insurers, with 77 000 members of staff working in over 60 countries and a turnover of 74 billion euros (2015). Generali France is backed by over 10 000 co-workers and representatives providing insurance solutions to 8.3 million customers, individuals or beneficiaries of guarantees as part of their activities, as well as to 800 000 companies and professionals. Generali France is a socially responsible insurer, committed to supporting people with disabilities. The company has an insertion unit for disabled workers (PITH in French) applying a strict policy of integrating staff with disabilities. In particular, this involves:
- Forging a sense of responsibility among all the players in the company, with a long-term mission to change the perception of disability (innovative tools to raise awareness, including the web-series “ça handilong.fr” (www.cahandilong.fr)).
- The recruitment and integration of new members of staff with disabilities (over 80 people since 2014).
- Support for over 400 members of staff with disabilities and the preservation of their jobs with a network of internal and external players (a “Guide to Tools” lists the compensatory help available to the members of staff concerned: telecommuting, help areas, etc.).
Founded in 1912, the Pomona Group is today the national leader in delivering food products and non-food products to professionals in the hospitality industry and specialised local companies. A multi-specialised distributor, the Pomona Group is rooted in a local base with the expertise of its five distribution networks: - For the hospitality industry (canteens and restaurants) with : TerreAzur: fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood PassionFroid: frozen foods, dairy and meat products Episaveurs: grocery products, drinks and hygiene - For local food retailers with : Délice & Création: products for bakers and pastry chefs Saveurs d’Antoine: products for butchers and delicatessen retailers
The Pomona Group employs 9 000 people in 140 sites all over France. Its success is largely based on its teams and their capacity to give the best of themselves each day and to offer the quality of service expected by the clients. Its teams are motivated by strong principles for action and a unifying mission: to help restaurants, canteens and food retailers provide their customers with better food. One of the guiding principles of the Pomona Group is to have confidence in people. This trust is expressed not only in a culture of promoting internally, an aim to give each person the chance to develop their talents, but also through the respect of all members of staff and their diversity.
It is in this spirit that the Pomona Group has decided to commit itself to promoting the integration and continuing employment of people with disabilities. The disability policy of the Pomona Group is built around three main orientations: a plan for preserving individuals in work with measures to adapt jobs, reconversion or career management, a partnership plan with adapted and protected companies, a hiring and training plan involving interns or students with disabilities, partnerships with specialised schools or organisations, direct recruitment at trade fairs or on employment sites dedicated to disabled workers. To apply this policy at a local level, a network of some 40 regional disability coordinators was set up in 2012. In each region a coordinator was appointed with the task of giving form to the Group’s disability policy by applying a range of different initiatives in the region.

Be yourself: you are unique and that helps create a better IKEA

IKEA France’s COMMITMENT
In France IKEA has over 9 000 members of staff and 32 stores. At the end of 2015, the company had 431 disabled workers. Since the “handi-cap” initiative was set up in 2007, IKEA France has been committed to recruiting, integrating and supporting workers with disabilities all through their careers, in jobs as varied as sales, food retailing, customer service, logistics, human resources, building maintenance or refurbishment. In these professions, we look for members of staff and managers who share our values and who can embody them on a daily basis. In each of our stores, a Handicap coordinator acts on a daily basis to raise awareness, inform and give concrete shape to our commitments. The coordinators are helped in their work by a member of IKEA’s staff with a disability who is associated with the “handi-cap” initiative to share his or her experience and help to put our actions into practice. Our first commitment is to make permanent recruitment of staff with disabilities easier at all levels and in all the positions in our organisation. This commitment involves lasting partnerships with local employment players and associations such as LADAPT, which set up meetings between workers with disabilities and recruiters. We then ensure that our staff with disabilities will have the same chances to flourish and develop in their work. To do so, we individually monitor their progress, adapt their training, the work environment and working hours when necessary, and train our managers in supporting them.
