Vivendi engages in skills sponsorship
The Vivendi Create Joy solidarity program is organizing a “day of engagement ” in France, during which the Group’s employees can share their expertise and skills with six of the associations supported by the program.
Since 2008, Vivendi Create Joy has been supporting associations providing assistance to young people in difficulty and fighting for equal opportunities and the promotion of diversity. Vivendi intends to strengthen its support for the partners of its solidarity program and enhance employee skills while responding to their quest for meaning.
The various workshops of this “day of engagement” will be supervised by ProBonoLab, an organization specialized in engagement through the sharing of skills.
Vivendi is also launching a platform to connect associations with Group employees. To meet the objectives of this platform, Vivendi now offers all its French employees one day of engagement per year.
