Work, a factor of everyday economic and social integration, also contributes to human dignity, personal recognition and independence.Because no-one is unemployable, the Veolia Foundation supports initiatives and structures in places where Veolia is active that help people who have dropped out of mainstream society return to work or that strengthen social links.
"By creating a network of high-quality local services, we want to rehydrate the city through human contact. Being part of the network, the hub of which will be the concierge kiosk, will allow service providers to acquire a status and become better known in the neighborhood. We're on a social quest: we want to change this society that condemns so many talented people to enforced idleness. There's no such thing as a dead-end job: doing a good job with the aim of performing a service is something of great value and allows people to feel proud of what they do."
