Econocom has made people the key focus of its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) strategy and proved its commitment to being a one-of-a-kind employer by launching the “Be a Patagonian” programme. Exciting and off-beat – like the career experience Econocom offers – this initiative will enable 1,000 employees to experience a unique adventure in Patagonia.
Thanks to its strong growth, Econocom now employs 10,000 people in 19 countries and plans to recruit a further 1,700 in 2017. The group is therefore keen to strengthen ties with its employees and allow them all to progress and be committed and fulfilled. These are three fundamental pillars of its human resources policy.
“Be a Patagonian” is tangible proof of Econocom’s commitment to its teams, who make the company the success it is: this challenge rewards their commitment and motivation. Thus, between now and 2021, 1,000 employees will go to Patagonia, thus establishing this collective adventure as a fundamental part of Econocom’s DNA.
“This initiative clearly reflects who Econocom is. We want to offer our 10,000 current employees, as well as the 1,700 people we plan to hire in 2017, exciting jobs and excellent career prospects, whilst providing them with a rewarding working environment,” says Sébastien Musset, Executive Director in charge of human resources for Econocom Group.
