They have joined our network of Partner Companies, being part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility.
Conscious of the social vocation of Sekoia, and wishing to make a commitment to corporate social responsibility, they have made the choice to employ marginalized individuals.
For this, they sought our services and were able, if they so desired, to welcome into their businesses interns who are the recipients of social aid measures.
In these cases, these recipients (interns) remain under the administrative responsibility of Sekoia Services SA for the entire time of their external internship. Sekoia supports its Partner Companies in integrating and managing these interns.
We kindly thank our Partners for their commitment and participation in our mission of professional reintegration.
Located on the campus of the University of Lausanne and EPFL, the Fondation d’Accueil de l’Enfance du Campus L (FAECL) welcomes more than 200 children from birth to compulsory school entry and in a UAPE 1-2 Harmos.
Between 70 and 80 people work at the Centre de Vie Enfantine (CVE) “Le Polychinelle” and at the UAPE “Polykids-Unimômes”.
We collaborated with Sekoia Services SA, specialized, among others, in the field of Human Resources, for :
- Updating of the Staff Regulations
- Establishment of an employee guide
- Optimization of staff administration
- HR Recommendations
We are very pleased with this active and respectful collaboration, which continues today under the best auspices.
Service Equipement Wescher SA
Our company, Service Equipement Wescher SA, a partner company with Sekoia, regularly welcomes interns in the context of professional redevelopment programs. We are very pleased with this collaboration, which is carried out under excellent conditions. Sekoia Services SA takes care of the interns’ interests and respects our entrepreneurship requirements. Moreover, they are very proactive in all other circumstances. We are content with the relationships we have built; the majority of these internships were very positive both for the intern in terms of their professional redevelopment and confidence, as well as for our company that welcomes motivated people whose fresh and often interested look at our business activity benefits us. We would encourage other small to medium businesses to be open to this step that promotes social inclusion and solidarity, which is enriching for everyone involved.
Thanks to Sekoia, I was able to hire a trustworthy employee to whom I could assign a great number of my tasks, freeing up my time for other projects.
The professionals at Sekoia were able to find a trustworthy and reliable person, with great conscientiousness, by efficently filtering through applications.
Sekoia also really helped us train personnel and we are very pleased with that.
ID Quantique (IDQ)
ID Quantique is a company with strong growth, which has seen its team go from a dozen people to more than 50 employees.
Because of this development, the HR processes that were created internally had reached their limits. Sekoia helped us assess the situation, establish processes and then adapt them to the development of the Company.
We really appreciated the professionalism of the Sekoia team, as well as the ability to propose practical solutions adapted to us.
As a Partner Company of Sekoia Services SA, we regularly welcome interns in our various departments. Whilst it is true that this requires somewhat of an investment of time in the beginning for our business that often must train or review their abilities, in most cases, it turns out to be very beneficial; we are able to count on motivated interns, making an effort to re-enter professional life and who are able to provide real support to our teams.
Some of them were offered permanent positions at the end of their internship. It’s a good way for us to validate recruitments with employees who have already been placed in the position, whose attitude and abilities have been demonstrated.
The oversight and support of Sekoia for the entire term of these internships largely facilitates these interns’ reintegration, while entirely freeing us from overseeing social insurance requirements. This also offers us the possibility of maintaining a neutral and impartial employer-employee relationship, without having to get into the details of health issues of our interns. Hence, medical information is kept confidential, which allows our interns the freedom to talk or not talk about their situation.
Godetproduction – Publicium
Sekoia contacted my company to establish a partnership for the professional redevelopment of an emotionally affected person. I agreed on an internship of six months.
This person was overseen for several months by the Sekoia team before being assigned to us and is now entirely integrated in our organization structure. She has several tasks assigned to her every day, that she carries out with diligence and ease. It is clear that in the near future, this person will become completely independent, and I think that the Sekoia team has perfectly mastered their human missions.
Thanks again for your confidence in us.
SCS consulting solutions
I like to define SCS consulting solutions as a “boutique for putting projects in place”. Our teams of consultants work mainly in the field of health and finance.
As an employer of choice, I’m conscious of my social responsibility and when Sekoia Services SA proposed that I welcome into our business an intern undergoing professional redevelopment to allow this person to assess their new carrer, I immediately accepted.
Over several months, we saw this motivated intern improve their skill set and we are pleased to see them today as a real colleague.
This first experience is reassuring in the fact that we helped an intern move towards a new profession or even helped him regain confidence after an absence from professional life, and it was truly a beneficial experience for all.
From now on, I would be happy to have the possibility of welcoming other interns to help us with our growth.
