Driving forward innovative, meaningful projects for the company and its stakeholders.
The Foundation is a fully-fledged player in Decathlon’s CSR strategy, and also spearheads projects that extend beyond the scope of philanthropy.
Since 2005 it has been helping employees keen to get involved in social inclusion projects, using sport as a vehicle for integration. In 2015, the Foundation’s mission began to place greater emphasis on integration within the employment market.
Decathlon project leaders are now tasked with enabling Foundation beneficiaries to discover the joys and advantages of sport, as well as providing practical support in terms of getting them back into work (help writing CVs, conducting mock interviews, and presentations on business sectors/roles, with a view to internships, training placements, and temporary and permanent contracts) within an organisation of their choice.
This is how the Decathlon Foundation encourages diversity, both outside the company and within its teams.
