The 5th Employment Pass was held on 21 March on the esplanade in La Défense.
The one-day forum organised by Mission Handicap and the Group Human Resources Department in partnership with ADAPT (Association for the social and professional integration of the disabled) involved more than 80 Societe Generale employees.
Various themes were covered, with employees meeting job seekers to share their experiences and give advice about how to optimise their job searches.
The employees were really committed and motivated and their keen interest in sharing and helping the people they met during the day was very much in evidence throughout the event, but that is best expressed by the people who were there:
“These few hours are always very rewarding and I get a lot out of it: being able to discuss and sometimes help…how gratifying! I hope to see you back here in 2014.”
“And actually in terms of the welcome given and organisation, all the participants and people manning the stands told us about how satisfied they were throughout the day; a great practical example of team spirit! Thank you and see you next year for number 6...”

“Thank you for this wonderful experience of sharing experiences and talking to people. I felt useful…I would love to do it again.”
Sandra PAOLI MARQUES
“Thanks again for making this fulfilling experience possible.”
“I really enjoyed the day and I went home feeling very proud of having signed up to help people who really needed it. […] Can’t wait for next year.”
“It was my first time, I was shy on arrival and delighted at the end. I made a few people in the office jealous when I got back.”
