The 5th annual Societe Generale Citizen Commitment Week held in early June managed to mobilize some 10,000 employees in 113 of the Group's entities throughout the world.
In Europe, Africa, Asia and South America, 208 solidarity initiatives helped raise €667,000 for charitable organisations partnered with the Group in a massive employee undertaking in 41 countries.
This year, a tie and scarf drive was organised within the various entities for the benefit of organisations dedicated to professional integration through the Agence du Don en Nature (Agency for Donations in Kind). This unprecedented joint initiative proved to be a resounding success with employees. 8,600 items were collected around the world, enabling the Apprentis d'Auteuil organisation to receive a donation of €15,000 from the Societe Generale Foundation.
Citizen Commitment Week concluded on Monday, June 25 with the announcement of the winners of the Citizen Commitment Awards, which gave prizes to three projects with which the Group's employees have chosen to become involved. Voting was open to employees from June 1st to the 15th and there were ten projects in the running, all of them supported by the Societe Generale Foundation for Solidarity with the goal of encouraging professional integration. In total, 4,363 employees voted for their favourite project, a 25% increase in participation from 2011.
