ENTREPRISES PARTENAIRES

ESSEC has built numerous partnership around disabilities' issues. 


Natixis (Scholarships, PHARES, awareness)
Natixis is a financing, management and financial services bank, created in 2006. It is a subsidiary of the group BPCE, which was born from the fusion of the groups Caisse d'épargne and Banque Populaire. 

Natixis has been committed since 2011 in a proactive policy in favor of recruitment, inclusion, and support of people with disabilities. Carried by the Mission Handicap and its referents' network in the different professions, it translated into two agreements, a reinforced collaboration with managers and concrete results : in five years, the employment rate of disabled people has more than tripled at Natixis, more than 450 employees with disabilities have a professional occupation. 

This policy hinges on four commitments : 
- Making the access to work and the hiring easier : involvement in specialized careers fairs, partnerships with schools and universities, development of recruiting grounds. 
- Supporting people with disabilities thanks to concrete measures : adjustment of post offices and job times, help in transportation, financing of specific equipments. 
- Developing the use of protected and adapted work's sector : diversification of services and referenced partners (digitization, printing, consulting and IT)
- Making minds evolve and breaking stereotypes about disabilities : annual information campaigns, training workshops, awareness of people around. 

Natixis's support can also take the shape of scholarship's financing and lectures to students. 

"Within Natixis, we wish to build a working environment, which is respectful and inclusive takes advantage of its talents diversity and in which each one can be heard, highlighted, and have an impact." Christelle Room, Diversity & Inclusion Manager
