On 9th October, Societe Generale organised a Pro Bono Day for 2014.


Around twenty partners volunteered to learn about the problems faced by 3 partner associations of the Societe Generale Corporate Foundation.



Adèle Haentjens, IBFS Communication Manager: “This day gave me an opportunity to use my knowledge in a different way, for a different aim. All of our energy was geared towards a deliverable, and I think we have been very effective! This experience has given me a different view of my skills and working methods. It was very rewarding to meet with other partners of the Group who I probably wouldn’t have met otherwise. It’s a really good opportunity to participate in these days organised by Societe Generale. To be repeated!”



During the day, the partners provided their skills to the following associations:

-          Femmes pour le Dire, Femmes pour Agir (FDFA): they proposed a strategy to recruit a communication manager and to improve loyalty of volunteers ;

-          Solidarités Nouvelles face au Chômage (SNC): they discussed producing a welcome leaflet for volunteers ;

-          Croix-Rouge Insertion:  they advised the association regarding the development of income-generating activity.



Maudy Piot, president of the association “Femmes pour le Dire, Femmes pour Agir”: “We have never been able to maintain the loyalty of our volunteers in 11 years ; today everything has become clearer and we understand how to enhance a vacancy when recruiting volunteers”.


Laurence Reynaud, Promotion and Development Manager for “Solidarités Nouvelles face au Chômage”: “A skills-based sponsorship day as part of a Pro Bono Day represents 56 hours of work for me, that’s significant and allows me to advance much more quickly with projects”.
