For several years, Klesia has been organising an internal event: the Solidaire. The aim of the "Solidaire" is to support charities working towards equal opportunities: support for people with disabilities, fighting against inequality, exclusion, illiteracy etc For klesia, it is also about developing the spirit of solidarity and cohesion and gather employees around a common project that is at the heart of social and societal concerns.
Many events are organised all across the Group sites with the aim of gathering together the employees of klesia for convivial moments of sharing and solidarity.
The funds gathered are used to help these organisations implement their projects.
Each year to support new associations, Diversity referrals from our sites, in consultation with the diversity mission, are calling for local projects. Once the seven charities are selected, referees, assisted by volunteers (Klesia employees), prepare an animation program which allows employees to help those charities.
During the Solidarity Week, everyone can participate in the awareness workshops, sports, cultural and culinary activities that are offered and meet the charities.
In most Klesia sites, the major event that brings together associations, volunteers, colleagues and sometimes their families happens on Sunday: urban rally, walking, running, cycling, petanque tournament, picnicking, canoeing etc. At the end of the week, the amounts thus collected, either through sponsoring or as a result of participation in an activity, are then topped up by Klesia.
Since its creation, 33 associations were supported and over 310 000 euros have been collected.
La Solidaire 2015 klesia week will take place from September 21 to 27.
