The CSR commitment at Synchrone is concrete

Social and environmental responsibility.

Synchrone makes practical and measurable social and environmental responsibility commitments on the ground.

Each year, an action plan lays out the objectives. The cross-functional CSR division ensures its deployment, in conjunction with the departments concerned in the company, and measures the results of past actions. Each employee is invited to participate so they can respond in their own way to various social, ethical, and environmental challenges.

With complete awareness and transparency, we view our commitment as a guarantee of progress and durability, the key to shared growth that benefits the company, its employees and partners, and more widely, civil society and the environment in which we develop and grow.

Driven by an ambition for continuous improvement and performance, Synchrone is formalizing a new CSR governance and strengthening its policy on two priority issues: a low-carbon strategy and a responsible digital approach. The next objective is to validate its commitment with one or more labels, affirming its effectiveness in the sector.

employee awareness

Three examples of concrete actions involving the Synchrone teams’ solidarity efforts and benefits for people with disabilities.

Each year, a unique activity is offered to our teams during the European Week for the Employment of People with Disabilities.

It’s a fun and original way for employees to get involved and show concern for disabled people in the workplace who are often not recognized.

In 2021, the serious game: “80%, the agency of unique talents.”

Mission: discover as quickly as possible the identity of the hidden fifteen celebrities to create the best agency cast, and unlock the six prizes until the valuable “Invisible Disabled Person” door opener!

To raise awareness about the situations of vulnerable communities, Synchrone performs various solidarity actions throughout the year.

One emblematic event occurring each year is the Pink Month movement, which benefits the fight against breast cancer.

For the event, Synchrone seeks out numerous runners for its running team to participate in charity runs organized throughout October with the Odyssea Run being at the major event.

In March and April of 2022, Synchrone participated in the H-Games, a large inter-company competition supporting people with disabilities as part of its sports and well-being program, United Heroes x Synchrone.

All of the employees got involved over three weeks to support athletes with disabilities, which helped to generate a Synchrone donation to the Fédération Française Handisport.

Cécile Hernandez, médaille d'or

Cécile Hernandez, Olympic para-snowboard champion, is an athlete sponsor of Synchrone.

Since 2017, Synchrone has provided support to Cécile Hernandez, Olympic para-snowboard champion, who has impressed us with her strength of conviction, her humanity.

As the company’s athlete sponsor, she stands as an example of resilience and commitment, and regularly assists us in our events to offer us a different view of life, tolerance, openness, and the fighting spirit.

In her efforts to have her disability admitted into the 2022 Beijing Paralympic Games, Cécile showed that tenacity can help you win the greatest victories with her gold medal win in snowboard-cross at the games.

Hats off to you!
