A child of Bondy
Born of Moroccan parents and raised in Bondy, Seine-Saint-Denis, Saïd took up judo at a very young age and successfully achieved the 2nd DAN in competition. After completing a Master of Advanced Studies (Diplôme d'études supérieures spécialisées, DESS), he first worked as a HR Manager at Case Poclain and then at a Local Employment Mission (Mission Locale pour l’Emploi), before leaving to launch his own idea. Co-founder of La Ruche, he founded human resources company Mozaïk RH in 2008.
The idea: talk about the 95% of young people from the area who are qualified and ready to work
By placing young graduates from underprivileged areas who are stigmatised because of where they come from at the heart of his project, Saïd decided to change recruiter's views and created the first recruitment and HR consultancy firm specialised in promoting diversity.
An experiment in the social and solidarity economy that works
Now a leading recruiter of diverse graduates, Mozaïk RH has collaborated with over 150 companies since its inception and has organised more than 11,000 interviews, resulting in 3,500 recruitments in large groups such as Accenture, Airbus, engie, Radio-France and SFR, as well as in a number of SMEs.
Saïd also created the Mozaïk Lab, an innovation and engineering unit, and a campus where over 100 volunteers from various companies coach young graduates in how to find a job. In the future, he will be working on developing a national network of franchises and has just launched the Mozaïk Foundation, which aims to bring about change with regard to the economic inclusion of young graduates in underprivileged areas.
On 6 October, Mozaïk RH, together with the Employment Centre (Pôle emploi) and the Ministry of Labour, signed a national partnership agreement between Mozaïk RH and the Employment Centre aimed at strengthening collaboration and synergies in supporting diverse candidates and companies in opening up their recruitment processes.
In December, the Mozaïk Foundation has organised an awards ceremony for the Top Ten Most Diverse Recruiters, with the support of the Ministry of the Economy and in partnership with the Caisse des Dépôts, the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations, the ANDRH (National Association of HR Managers), the AFMD (French Association of Diversity Managers), Syntec and newspaper Les Echos.
