From 7th to 11th January, 2019, BNP Paribas Cardif is holding a solidarity week to help charities around Nanterre, where the insurer has been operating since 2011.
Over 300 employees from the Customer Service Division, all of them volunteers, will participate in some twenty workshops during their working hours in support of 14 local charities working in the fields of childhood, environment, disability, health and combatting exclusion. All employees can participate in this charitable operation, regardless of their status (work placement, permanent, fixed-term and temporary).
In partnership with Unis-Cité association, which specialises in organising corporate charitable initiatives, 1,000 working hours are made available to charities to help them carry out concrete projects which meet real needs. Some employees will create murals in a residence for people with disabilities, while others will take care of second hand items and clothes in a charity shop. Cooking workshops with children with autistic disorders and the construction of a pergola in a therapeutic garden are also on offer. Employees will be able to keep in contact with these charities at a later date, as individuals.
“The staff of the Customer Service Division are engaged on a daily basis to supporting our customers. Now we’re giving them the opportunity to commit to meeting the occasional needs of a charity within our local ecosystem. We’re delighted with this operation, which is fully in line with our positioning as a socially engaged insurer. At BNP Paribas Cardif, we support numerous charities in the 35 countries we operate in, notably in the areas of entrepreneurship and financial education,” explains Hervé Cazade, Operations Director for BNP Paribas Cardif France, at the initiative of this operation.
