Crédit Agricole continues commitment to ending workplace illiteracy

| 12.09.2018 | Crédit Agricole Group

To mark France's fifth National Anti-Illiteracy Week, which will take place from 8 to 15 September, Crédit Agricole is reasserting its commitment to combating illiteracy in the workplace.

Since September 2017, Crédit Agricole has been a partner of #STOPILLETTRISME ("STOP ILLITERACY"), an association of businesses offering illiterate or semi-literate employees eight months’ professional training leading to a qualification.
In this context, Crédit Agricole S.A. and its subsidiaries have developed a mentoring programme designed to provide support and guidance to the employees of cleaning companies working at the Group’s three sites in the Greater Paris region. One hour of mentoring per week provides these workers with personalised additional support on top of their training, and invaluable help in achieving their professional qualification.
In total, 94 volunteers from the Crédit Agricole workforce have supported 34 tutees via the mentoring programme at the Montparnasse, Montrouge and Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines sites.

Crédit Agricole will also be taking part in the conference “Illiteracy in the workplace: from taboo to action” on 13 September, organised by the Groupe ADP Foundation, the National Anti-Illiteracy Agency and the association #STOPILLETTRISME.

At the event, the Crédit Agricole group will sign the #STOPILLETTRISME charter, a set of commitments made by companies and organisations to take tangible steps to address these issues.
