People: improve quality of life

One of Edenred's missions is to improve the quality of life of its stakeholders with the following three ambitions: to be an employer of choice, to promote well-being through healthy eating practices, and to contribute to local development.

To be an employer of choice

Edenred seeks to support its employees throughout their professional lives. First, thanks to projects aimed at attracting diverse talents and allowing them to reach their full potential.

Among its initiatives, the Edenstep graduate program gives young graduates two years of access to positions of responsibility in an international environment.

Bringing together some 20 employees with 5-10 years of professional experience, Talent Week aims to develop the Group's young talents.

The Edenred Executive Academy is a program for more experienced employees. Those with high potential can pave the way for their future career progression by working on various topics such as leadership, business development and personal development.

 

Moreover, the Best place to work initiative allows Edenred to its employees’ job satisfaction and to improve the quality of their work life accordingly.

  

Edenred is a multi-local company, and proud of its multiculturalism. The Group is aware that the diversity of its employees brings strength and richness, while reflecting the diversity of its clients.

Finally, Edenred is committed to promoting its core values in respect for human rights, labor regulations and good environmental practices, as evidenced by its signing of the United Nations Global Compact.

 

To promote well-being through healthy and sustainable nutrition To promote well-being through healthy and sustainable nutrition 

Edenred helps companies take care of the health of their employees by encouraging good practices relating to healthy eating, exercise and well-being.

Edenred has also developed a new program in the United States, where the obesity rate is high. The aim is to encourage employees to eat healthily and to reduce health costs related to obesity. The NutriSavings program analyzes the nutritional quality of employees’ shopping and offers them rewards or reductions if they buy healthy products.

In Brazil, Ticket Fit is an accessible app providing a social network, dietary advice, discount coupons, training videos and other features that encourage regular physical activity.

Initiated in 2009 by Edenred, the European FOOD program (Fighting Obesity through Offer and Demand) is a public-private consortium aimed to provide answers to the growing problem of obesity. The program brings together public authorities, nutritionists, university researchers and nine Group subsidiaries to improve the nutritional quality of meals offered to employees during their lunch break.

Contribute to local development Contribute to local development

Edenred carries out solidarity projects aimed at forging strong ties with local communities. Thanks to its day of action to support these communities, Idealday, over 1,000 days of volunteering were given by Edenred employees in only one day on June 19th 2019.

Among the initiatives carried out during that day, Edenred India teamed up with different foundations in order to serve hot meals to orphans and children with special needs but also to provide information about menstrual health and hygiene to the dwellers of a local slum. Employees from Edenred Greece engaged in the clean-up of one of Athens’ most popular beaches while Edenred Brazil organized a number of mentoring sessions including an activity aimed at introducing the elderly to digital tools.

The Group's commitment is also reflected in the connected Edenraid sports challenge for the Make-A-Wish® association, launched in 2017. All Edenred employees are invited to run, walk, cycle, swim and even ski in order to make children’s dreams come true. In 2018, 327,000 kilometers were covered over the course of two months by 2,300 employees spread across 40 countries. The 3rd edition of the challenge will take place from September to November 2019.

In Brazil, Ticket Log has been supporting young people between the ages of 16-19 in difficult circumstances for the 10 past years via its Pescar project, which offers daily courses that provide them with professional training. Beyond its social ambition, Ticket Log’s objective is to identify promising young talents and to keep them in the company. Since 2009, 137 young people have been trained via the Pescar project.

For 15 years, Edenred France has been supporting actions dedicated to French Red Cross food aid, notably by offering "Ticket Restaurant" (restaurant coupon) holders the opportunity to donate their vouchers throughout the year. In 2018, the campaign was once again highly successful, raising over 1.1 million euros. In total, more than 4.5 million euros have been raised for the organization since 2002.

Techo, an NGO partner of Edenred Mexico for 10 years, builds houses for families living in extreme poverty. Thanks to the support of Edenred Mexico, 78 families have benefited from a new home, and 14,268 hours of volunteering have been carried out by over 600 employees.

In all, 184 non-profits in host countries around the world were supported in 2018, with 1,008 eight-hour days devoted to volunteering activities
