Delivering health and safety

In 2016, a survey conducted by Decathlon Pro revealed that “keeping fit” was the most important motivation factor for those doing sport, ahead of “decompressing and de-stressing”.

Because Decathlon’s purpose is to make sport accessible to as many people as possible, thereby contributing to their well-being, the company considers health and safety at work as one of its key responsibilities with regards to its teammates.

« Decathlon’s “numéro bleu” (blue number) »

In 2016, a year after Decathlon launched its “numéro bleu” helpline in France, in partnership with an external body, 200 calls were registered, with this initiative benefitting 134 teammates and leading to almost 90 social welfare cases.

This solution was developed as a way of supporting any teammate, on condition of anonymity, who finds themselves in a challenging personal or professional situation (housing, finances, family, stress, etc.).
