The charter to encourage employment and territorial development
The Olympic venues and infrastructures, a lever for professional integration, employment and territorial development
On 5 July 2018, SOLIDEO’s board of directors adopted a Charter to encourage employment and territorial development for the construction projects linked to the organisation of the Games.
It implements the Social Charter for the Games signed by all social partners in an operational way, and also implements article 16 of the French law of 26 March 2018 relating to the organisation of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, which imparts responsibility to SOLIDEO to draw up an employment charter.
The Charter to encourage Employment and Territorial Development applies to all initiators of projects and public and private project managers contracted to SOLIDEO for construction operations relating to the organisation of the Games.
THE CHARTER TO ENCOURAGE EMPLOYMENT AND TERRITORIAL DEVELOPMENT
To support professional integration and economic development during the creation of the Olympic and Paralympic venues and infrastructures with 3 main objectives:
- 10% of hours worked are to be reserved for professional integration (unemployed people, young people in work- or vocational-study schemes or those living in disadvantaged neighbourhoods of the city)
- 25% of the value of the contracts are to be made available to very small businesses (VSB), small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and social and solidarity-based enterprises
- Socially exemplary sites: fight against illegal work, anticompetitive practices, discrimination, guarantee the quality of working conditions.
- Commitments from project managers in the context of the agreed objectives.
- Rigorous reporting
- Implementation using national processes and local players for employment, social integration and economic development.
SOLIDEO uses the collective mobilisation of all the stake holders in the venues and infrastructures to support the project managers in the implementation of the Charter.
