To promote these, several working groups were created comprising personnel representatives and management on the following themes: distance working charter, IT charter, annual negotiations, implementation of the economic and social database agreement on profit-sharing schemes, good disconnection practices, work life quality and an internal survey.


Training policy and initiatives

Work life quality

ecosystem is particularly mindful to employee working life. This is why employees work in WELL platinum-certified high environmental quality premises. Respecting privacy and listening to our employees contribute to work life quality.

During the 16th Work Life Quality Week that took place from 17-21 June employees were given the opportunity to participate in convivial workshops on the following: introduction to yoga, fruit bar, “Managing stress and feelings” workshop, the “Disconnect and switch your mobile phones off” challenge, etc.

SHREC, a group of engaged employees

Only after a year of existence SHREC (Harmonious, Responsible and Environmental Solutions in the Work Place) widely contributed to improving the work life quality of ecosystem employees. Created at their initiative, the group implemented the following:

  • Free access to organic/fair trade certified tea and coffee available to as all employees.
  • The implementation of zero-waste referenced tray meals.
  • New signposting for sorting bins in the 4th floor cafeteria in order to limit sorting errors to a maximum and respond to questions asked about the bins.
  • Raise awareness on switching off lights and electronic devices.
  • Various workshops (zero waste practices, games on the different labels that exist and what they mean, bike DIY and repair, etc.).
