For several years, the Cegos Group has taken concrete measures in corporate social responsibility, both in regard to its employees and all its other stakeholders.
As a leading, dedicated player in its sector, Cegos signed the CSR charter of the French federation of professional training (FFP) in early 2014.

Both within the company and for its clients, Cegos has taken a number of measures that reduce its impact on the environment, mainly in terms of the resources it uses.
- Cegos has widely digitised its documentation and taken drastic measures to reduce paper consumption, which has gone from 12 tonnes (23 kg per person) in 2012 down to 6.6 tonnes (14 kg per person) in 2015.
- The Group also has an active Green IT policy to halve electricity consumption and CO2 emissions (e.g. by encouraging video-conference meetings).
- Lastly, to encourage environmentally-friendly modes of transport, Cegos is working in partnership with the rental company Arval. This way, 81% of the Cegos vehicle fleet emits less than 135 g of CO2.
Cegos has made training more accessible to more people for a number of years. It has done so by helping educate groups of people in the least-developed countries alongside several NGOs.
- Since 2012, Cegos has been a corporate “Friend of Unicef” and helps fund renovation of schools in Africa (Mozambique, Niger, etc.).
- For ten years, Cegos has supported the Planète Urgence association: over one hundred humanitarian missions have been led by Cegos teams worldwide through voluntary-service leave, and the Group has provided 30,000 school kits for young children Africa.
- In its support for the charity LINGOs (Learning In NGOs), Cegos has made its e-learning modules available to 45 major international NGOs (Save the Children, Care, WWF, etc.) and to underprivileged groups of people. Over 36,000 humanitarian workers and charity-sector professionals enjoy access to Cegos e-learning modules through two programmes led by the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation.
- Cegos has also made its training modules available to the Social Entrepreneur Academy created by Accenture and the NGO 1001 Fontaines to help train entrepreneurs in developing countries (India, Cambodia, Madagascar, etc.).
PEOPLE ARE AT THE HEART OF OUR DEVELOPMENT
With 1,000 employees and 3,000 partners worldwide, Cegos is a people-friendly firm.
At Cegos, it is people and teams that make a difference through high-level expertise and embodiment of the Group’s three values: Commitment, Agility, Sharing.
There is real diversity in the Group, whether in regard to the clients we support, the services we provide (individual training, team training, transformation projects, international training projects, digital learning, outsourced management of training, etc.), the business activities we represent or the candidates we choose to recruit.
Skills development is in our DNA. Each employee receives support so they can progress in their business line and develop professionally, from their initial integration to training courses they are offered each year.
Through a strong culture of cooperation (participation in cross-disciplinary projects and Group-wide priority projects) and innovation (collective curiosity, creativity and initiatives are highly encouraged), each employee can constantly cultivate their talents. This capacity to innovate and adapt is often recognised throughout the world.
As an independent company, Cegos belongs to its directors and employees. This approach based on employee shareholding encourages personal dedication and means that each worker is valued.
