Through its commitments, the Synergie Group shows its dedication to human values by supporting acts of citizenship.
The Group also participates to numerous local events and supports initiatives in various fields involving its temporary workers, its clients and employees.
Marie-Amélie Le Fur, disabled athlete and Synergie commit themselves for the integration of people with disabilities.
Synergie Spain commits to top-level sportsmen and -women by partnering with the CAR’Speakers programme (Centro de Alto Rendimiento or centre of excellence for sporting activities). This fruitful partnership sees athletes tell their stories to entrepreneurs and provides training by Synergie when they join a company.
The CAR’Speakers programme has a dual objective: helping sportsmen and -women at the end of their careers to become part of the professional milieu, and distributing and adapting their model of success to the business world.
In this programme, Synergie is involved in training these athletes to help them join a company. After a short-lived first career, these men and women need to get their second wind and start a new career.
Patrice Martin is an example of successful reorientation into the Group:
After having monopolized the European and global water-skiing podiums for 15 years, Patrice Martin embarked on a more conventional career path at Synergie, where he heads the public relations department and represents the company at all organised events.
The Group’s employees: the brand’s best ambassadors prove their solidarity.
The common denominator of many subsidiaries is the involvement of their employees in contributing to the funding of humanitarian associations.
The Acorn subsidiary in the United Kingdom encourages its permanent employees to get involved in charitable causes. They are involved in the CEO Kickabout: an event organised to raise funds for the Football Association of Wales to promote the practice of football.
Synergie Belgium is collaborating with the company “StreetwiZe” to help fund mobile schools to educate children in disadvantaged areas.
In Portugal, our employees take part in charity runs to help raise funds for medical research: Wings For Life.
In France, our employees are highly involved in humanitarian causes:
- Raid 4L Trophy: sports event aimed at contributing school supplies to children in southern Morocco.
- Téléthon, to support the funding of research in genetic diseases
- Sidaction, to help fight AIDS
All these actions demonstrate the commitment and involvement of the Group’s employees
Marie-Amélie Le Fur, a Paralympic athlete, and Synergie are together fighting the same battle for the integration of people with disabilities. Impressed by the strong personality of this exceptional champion, the Group has decided to support her by forging a genuine partnership.
Marie-Amélie likes a challenge, and her strong list of achievements proves her outstanding performance at every athletics event in which she competes.
At the most recent world championships, the young athlete won two gold medals, including two world records in the long jump and 400 metres, and two gold medals in the 100 and 200 metres.
The Synergie Group is proud of its ambassador, and also of its young power-chair football ambassadors, who sport the Synergie colours on the playing fields. The power-chair football team has been supported by the Group for 11 years and is nearing the elite division.
The Group shares the same goal with all its athletes: combating prejudice against people with disabilities and breaking down barriers between individuals.
