Societe Generale wanted to celebrate its 150th anniversary by showcasing the team spirit that drives the group, so it created a community-building athletic challenge for all its employees who want to raise funds for partner associations.
Group employees in nearly 30 countries on every continent will be choosing from among a range of sports: petanque, flag rugby, five-a-side football, table tennis, relay race or cycling. They will play on teams named after one of the Group's partner associations and raise money for that organisation. It is a great way to combine community spirit and sport.
All the countries will be holding qualifying rounds. The teams that win and, most importantly, that collect the most money, will go on to the grand finale in Paris on 14 June. All of the games will be played in the spirit of fun and team-building. Follow the Citizen Commitment Games throughout the first half of the year and cheer on the dedicated athletes and volunteers!
