Sherbrooke OEM, a company specializing in custom-made recycling equipment, is receiving financial assistance of $950,000 from Ottawa to enable it to pursue its growth. It was the Minister of Sports and Minister responsible for Canada Economic Development Pascale Saint-Onge who made the announcement on Monday.

The Boulevard Industriel company wanted to acquire an automated laser cutting system for recycling. Due to the labor shortage, the possibilities of expanding the business were limited according to entrepreneur Jérémy Ouellet.

We are evaluating replacing five to seven people who will go and do other tasks to carry out this growth, he believes. This type of system will open the door to new markets, particularly in the field of building construction.

Jérémy Ouellet explains that the company will also be able to save money by reducing its losses during steel processing, and on the type of steel used.

Sherbrooke OEM Sherbrooke has finalized the installation of the machine. Training for the use of this new machine has also been completed.

Support green businesses

Nearly $40 million will also be announced in February to support 20 green economy business and organization projects.

We are determined to support them so that they can prosper. We want them to position themselves in this green economic transition. These are projects that aim to reduce the environmental impact, mentioned Minister Pascale Saint-Onge, who also stressed that it was an important economic engine.

« SMEs like Sherbrooke OEM are the engine of innovation, sustainable development and job creation. »

The Poitevin site of the distribution company Adrexo has been on strike since the beginning of February over problems with working conditions and bonuses. Other sites in France are now joining the movement.

In Poitiers, 26 of the 31 employees of the Adrexo company have been on strike since the beginning of February. And no way out seems possible quickly.

The employees of this delivery company, whose head office is in Aix-en-Provence (Bouches-du-Rhône), denounce their working conditions. To find a solution, the labor inspectorate visited the warehouses to draw up an inventory. She then demanded the installation of ergonomic work tables to facilitate the sorting of parcels. But nothing was done, the employees had to make themselves more suitable tables with pallets and adhesive film.

The strikers are also asking for a meal bonus. The management had announced that it would be paid quickly, but according to the movement’s spokesman, Guillaume Chevreau, “nothing has been paid.”

The Poitevin management of the establishment does not have the hand to satisfy these claims, it is the headquarters of Aix-en-Provence which alone can do so. Result, the strike continues and the packages are not delivered “there are hundreds of packages in the warehouse waiting to be delivery“explains the director, Philippe Viroulet.

This Tuesday, striking employees will gather at the Place du Maréchal Leclerc in Poitiers with the CGT between 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. before starting a demonstration in the streets of the city.

Other Adrexo sites have also decided to go on strike in France, this is the case in Blois, Angers, Brest, Toulon and Saint-Étienne from Tuesday morning.

Management in Aix-en-Provence could not be reached on Monday.

Only 22% of companies would have enabled MFA authentication on Azure Active Directory accounts. A more than worrying figure…

Identity is at the heart of Zero Trust approaches and the main battleground for cybercriminals. It is by stealing and usurping identities that cyberattackers penetrate corporate networks, steal confidential data, introduce ransomware and other advanced threats (APT).

However, companies are still too lax in protecting the identities of their users if we are to believe the first Cyber ​​Signals report published by Microsoft. Surprisingly, Internet users seem – as individuals – more advanced than companies when it comes to the adoption of multi-factor authentication (MFA) and biometric authentication. A recent Duo Labs report thus revealed that in the USA (and the United Kingdom), 78% of Internet users had opted for two-factor authentication (mainly an identity check by SMS or email).

But according to Microsoft, only 22% of Azure AD customers would have enabled MFA protection !

However, the Cyber ​​Signals study simultaneously shows that Azure AD’s defense infrastructure detected and blocked more than 25.6 billion identity theft attempts (by Brute Force attacks, exploiting stolen password databases) in 2021!

Between November 26 and December 31, 83 million attacks against corporate user accounts were countered.

The report also reveals that Microsoft Defender for Endpoint in 2021 blocked more than 9.6 billion pieces of malware targeting both employees and Internet users. And Microsoft Defender for Office 365 has blocked more than 35.7 billion phishing emails and other malicious emails!

Finally, the report gives some prices practiced in the world of cybercrime. Thus access to a ransomware generation kit would cost on average 66 dollars plus 30% of the profit made with the payment of ransoms. Other information, a hacked mobile is more expensive than a hacked PC: $2.78 against $0.89. An account stolen through a phishing attack is traded between $100 and $1,000 on the Dark Net. Incidentally, Microsoft recalls that 98% of attacks could be stopped simply by applying the rules of hygiene of information systems.

How a Large Financial Services Company Protects Against Data Leaks with Lookout Secure Email Gateway

Regardless of industry or organization, corporate email is the leading cause of unauthorized and accidental data leaks. Employees constantly send emails to external parties that may contain sensitive company data, personally identifiable information, trade secrets and other intellectual property. Reducing the risk of exposure of sensitive data through corporate email can be tricky, especially when a company moves from on-premises email to a cloud-hosted email service, such as Gmail. and Microsoft Exchange Online. Integrating these on-premises devices with cloud-based email services creates complexity and inefficiency. A large financial services company became aware of this problem when it moved its email service to Microsoft Exchange Online and associated it with the Microsoft Outlook client. To complicate matters, their old email security solution from Symantec was running on-premises, which made their workflow much more complicated. To simplify their network design and ensure the efficiency of this new cloud model, they turned to Lookout Secure Email Gateway (SEG).

Lookout SEG is cloud-hosted and deployed as an SMTP-based mail transfer agent gateway inline with cloud-hosted customer outbound email from Exchange. Unlike the proxy-based approach employed by others, their SEG does not require any additional software components. Because it’s built on their integrated platform, it uses all the built-in data protection elements, including modern DLP and enterprise digital rights management (EDRM), to protect the information inside and outside the organization’s perimeter.

The challenge of data protection in e-mail

This high-profile client processes volumes of sensitive data every day for its financial markets clients. This data can be shared with up to 5,000 trusted web domains, often through an email exchange with multiple recipients at the same time. To operate effectively, the company needed to secure sensitive data without increasing complexity or limiting productivity. But the switch to Microsoft Exchange Online with the Microsoft Outlook client was not without problems.

Message traffic backhauling: clumsy and inefficient

While a cloud-hosted email solution offered many benefits, pairing it with Symantec’s on-premises email security solution was both clunky and ineffective. All incoming/outgoing email messages now had to pass from Microsoft Exchange Online in the cloud to a central on-premises data center where security policies were enforced. Only then could the message be sent back through the cloud and then onto the internet. You don’t have to be a network engineer to realize that this traffic backhauling approach puts a strain on expensive network elements.

Securing email traffic with Lookout Secure Email Gateway

Cloud-hosted Lookout SEG was deployed as an inline SMTP-based MTA gateway with customers’ cloud-hosted inbound/outbound email from Exchange. With the move to cloud-hosted messaging, one of the great appeals of Lookout SEG was that it eliminated backhauling and greatly simplified the customer’s network design. As part of the Lookout Security Service Edge (SSE) platform, it also allows customers to apply unified DLP policies across every application or platform used.

Core features include:

· Advanced data recognition and classification

The first step in securing email is to identify and classify the sensitive data contained in the message. This is where Lookout really outshone its competitors. As one of the most advanced DLP solutions on the market, it supports nearly 300 file types, embedded content and multiple languages.

The platform deeply scans attached files to extract attachments and other objects. Consider the case of an Excel spreadsheet embedded in a zipped Word file. In this example, the sophisticated DLP software examines the zipped file, reads the Word document, analyzes it, finds and reads the Excel data, and analyzes it. It is also capable of inspecting various types of images such as JPEG, BMP, PNG, and SVG, as well as scanned documents such as PDFs for detecting sensitive data using this Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software ). In short, the built-in DLP acts as a safeguard that identifies sensitive data before it is unintentionally exposed.

Automatically block unauthorized recipients

One of the main concerns for this client was the accidental transfer of sensitive data to unauthorized third parties. To solve this problem, the SEG allows IT security teams to define and apply policies based not only on content inspection, but also on contextual analysis. While content awareness involves breaking into the message to inspect the actual data being sent, context includes external factors such as sender and recipient, message header, message size and format, which can be used to get more information about the content. The ability to combine message content and context was another value proposition over competing solutions. Now, when an employee mistakenly sends an email to an unauthorized party, SEG automatically removes that recipient before the message is sent, without affecting other authorized parties. Suspicious messages can be moved to a quarantine area for further analysis.

Support secure productivity with a wide range of remediation options

Accurately identifying the sensitive data the customer needed to secure was only half the problem. The ability to take corrective action was a key requirement for finding the right balance between productivity and safety. Lookout SEG offered a wide range of data remediation options, including:

Authorize and save

Write

Block email

Apply data classification labels

Quarantine

Encrypt

Add a disclaimer

- Delete recipients

Integrate email security into every HSE solution

While the customer reviewed several vendors as part of their evaluation, the Lookout SSE solution was chosen because of its native data protection capabilities that extend to messaging through the use of SEG. By implementing Lookout SEG, the customer was able to remove their on-premises email gateway appliance with confidence. Now, its entire messaging workflow resides in the cloud. With business information flowing freely between employees and partners, the number of places where sensitive files can spread increases, making it increasingly difficult to ensure a secure information boundary. This client was able to reduce the likelihood of a data breach and therefore the business risk associated with it.

Created and established in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 1922, the General Company Malta Forrest (EGMF), specialized in the sectors of public works, civil engineering, construction, crushing, prefabrication of famous concrete products, this year (2022), its centenary (100 years) of activity and uninterrupted presence in the country.

Based in Lubumbashi, capital of the province of Haut-Katanga, the EGMF extends its activities throughout the national territory and rightly has offices in other cities of the country, namely: Kinshasa, Kalemi (Tanganyika ) and Kolwezi (Lualaba).

The EGMF is, nowadays, the oldest private company in the DRC especially for having preserved its identity (name) as well as its family structure since its creation. Moreover, it has now established itself as a privileged partner of private and public companies in the DRC, with which it collaborates for the construction and renovation of infrastructures.

“The fact that we are celebrating our 100th anniversary is not only a testament to a century of know-how, innovation and successful investment, but it also testifies to the confidence that our customers and the authorities of the countries testify to the General Company Malta Forrest (EGMF) and to the companies of the Forrest Group”, says Georges Arthur, president of the Forrest International Group, together.

The EGMF has recognized know-how in the fields of civil engineering, roads and even construction. It has built hundreds of kilometers of roads, road infrastructure, built engineering structures, buildings and even airfields. In 100 years, several achievements are to be credited to this company, which employs nearly 2,000 people, the vast majority of whom are Congolese. Some of EGMF’s most recent achievements in the DRC include:

– Renovation and extension of the runway at Kalemie airport so that it meets international standards;

– Construction of the Nyemba bridge, a major economic axis connecting the east to the west of the Province of Tanganyika;

– Construction of a 26 km long bypass road for the city of Kolwezi, intended for mining and industrial traffic;

– Complete rehabilitation of the presidential site of Mount Ngaliema;

– Transformation and modernization of the main axes of the city of Lubumbashi: roads to international standards in terms of safety and quality, equipped with solar lighting;

– Construction of the Peaceful Alternation bridge in Kolwezi or even

– Rehabilitation of the Jason Sendwe General Hospital in Lubumbashi.

A source of satisfaction for Malta David Forrest, CEO of the Forrest Group: “We can be proud of the long list of achievements and efforts over the past 100 years. At the dawn of a new century, we are enthusiastic and confident in the future, ready to take up with optimism the new challenges that await the Democratic Republic of Congo”.

Engagements

EGMF has been investing on the African continent since 1922. This longevity is the result of a vision of the role of the company, in this case the duty to be a positive player in the society in which it operates. It combines requirements such as: contribution of added value and technologies in the countries concerned; compliance with environmental standards similar to those applied within the EU; compliance with the laws, in particular social and fiscal, of the states in which it invests; contribution to the human development of local populations.

In the DRC, EGMF is one of the first companies to have associated a social component to its activities. Since its creation, the company has developed initiatives for the benefit of its employees, their families and the local population as a whole. She is one of the main sponsors of the Rachel Forrest Foundation. The latter develops projects in the areas of education, early childhood, health, culture, sport, infrastructure and the environment.

About the EGMF

Entreprise Générale Malta Forrest was created in Kolwezi (DRC) in 1922 by Malta Victor Forrest, a young man from New Zealand, barely 15 years old. Originally a transport company, EGMF turned towards mining (copper, manganese, gold) in 1933 and, in the early 1950s, developed its own civil engineering and public works activity. However, since 2018, EGMF and Groupe Forrest have stopped all activity in the mining sector.

Created and established in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 1922, the General Company Malta Forrest (EGMF), specialized in the sectors of public works, civil engineering, construction, crushing, prefabrication of famous concrete products, this year (2022), its centenary (100 years) of activity and uninterrupted presence in the country.

Based in Lubumbashi, capital of the province of Haut-Katanga, the EGMF extends its activities throughout the national territory and rightly has offices in other cities of the country, namely: Kinshasa, Kalemi (Tanganyika ) and Kolwezi (Lualaba).

The EGMF is, nowadays, the oldest private company in the DRC especially for having preserved its identity (name) as well as its family structure since its creation. Moreover, it has now established itself as a privileged partner of private and public companies in the DRC, with which it collaborates for the construction and renovation of infrastructures.

“The fact that we are celebrating our 100th anniversary is not only a testament to a century of know-how, innovation and successful investment, but it also testifies to the confidence that our customers and the authorities of the countries testify to the General Company Malta Forrest (EGMF) and to the companies of the Forrest Group”, says Georges Arthur, president of the Forrest International Group, together.

The EGMF has recognized know-how in the fields of civil engineering, roads and even construction. It has built hundreds of kilometers of roads, road infrastructure, built engineering structures, buildings and even airfields. In 100 years, several achievements are to be credited to this company, which employs nearly 2,000 people, the vast majority of whom are Congolese. Some of EGMF’s most recent achievements in the DRC include:

– Renovation and extension of the runway at Kalemie airport so that it meets international standards;

– Construction of the Nyemba bridge, a major economic axis connecting the east to the west of the Province of Tanganyika;

– Construction of a 26 km long bypass road for the city of Kolwezi, intended for mining and industrial traffic;

– Complete rehabilitation of the presidential site of Mount Ngaliema;

– Transformation and modernization of the main axes of the city of Lubumbashi: roads to international standards in terms of safety and quality, equipped with solar lighting;

– Construction of the Peaceful Alternation bridge in Kolwezi or even

– Rehabilitation of the Jason Sendwe General Hospital in Lubumbashi.

A source of satisfaction for Malta David Forrest, CEO of the Forrest Group: “We can be proud of the long list of achievements and efforts over the past 100 years. At the dawn of a new century, we are enthusiastic and confident in the future, ready to take up with optimism the new challenges that await the Democratic Republic of Congo”.

Engagements

EGMF has been investing on the African continent since 1922. This longevity is the result of a vision of the role of the company, in this case the duty to be a positive player in the society in which it operates. It combines requirements such as: contribution of added value and technologies in the countries concerned; compliance with environmental standards similar to those applied within the EU; compliance with the laws, in particular social and fiscal, of the states in which it invests; contribution to the human development of local populations.

In the DRC, EGMF is one of the first companies to have associated a social component to its activities. Since its creation, the company has developed initiatives for the benefit of its employees, their families and the local population as a whole. She is one of the main sponsors of the Rachel Forrest Foundation. The latter develops projects in the areas of education, early childhood, health, culture, sport, infrastructure and the environment.

About the EGMF

Entreprise Générale Malta Forrest was created in Kolwezi (DRC) in 1922 by Malta Victor Forrest, a young man from New Zealand, barely 15 years old. Originally a transport company, EGMF turned towards mining (copper, manganese, gold) in 1933 and, in the early 1950s, developed its own civil engineering and public works activity. However, since 2018, EGMF and Groupe Forrest have stopped all activity in the mining sector.

["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(4287) "

The Latin American real estate leader La house completed its first housing transaction paid for in bitcoin (BTC) in Colombia. This is confirmation of what he announced last November when he revealed that he would start accepting payments in BTC to access intellectual property.

A first cryptocurrency transaction

La house finally realized his first operation in bitcoin (BTC) some time after making the promise to its customers. According to Jehudi Castro Sierra, Vice President of Innovation and Future of La house, “This is a transaction that broke geographic boundaries and was carried out in accordance with the necessary validations to ensure the security of the transaction and the people involved in it.”

Mr. Sierra also claimed that “the fact that this type of transaction only took a month to complete in Colombia testifies to the unmet need that existed. We strive to provide this type of alternative to the rest of the country, so that payment methods and investment methods are not an obstacle to accessing residential property”.

This new transaction was carried out at a decisive moment in the history of Colombia. Indeed, according to a new resolution, individuals and companies carrying out cryptocurrency transactions are obliged to report them to the Financial Information and Analysis Unit, as soon as transactions are over $150 or $450.

The property sold for 2.45 BTC

The property marketed by La house is part of the Natura City real estate project, located in the city of Santa Marta. It was sold with bitcoin (BTC).

Jehudi Castro declared: “The transaction represents a down payment for a condominium in Natura Metropolis. A complex of exclusive apartments belonging to Títulos y Desarrollos Inmobiliarios, which is being built in the Bellavista sector, in Santa Marta, in the north of Colombia”.

Mr. Castro also added that the apartment cost about $98,000 in total, or about 2.45 BTC. The buyer, a woman residing in the city of Medellín, has paid 0.03 BTC as a deposit and can make additional payments in BTC until the development of the condominium is completed, which should happen in 2025.

In Colombia, it is now possible to make purchases of real estate properties using bitcoin (BTC). For this, it is enough to go to the specialists in the sector who accept transactions on the basis of digital assets. This is the case of La house who just sold a property for around $98,000, or 2.45 BTC.

How was this residency project born?

Christine Beurcq. It is an initiative of Zébra3, a Bordeaux association for artistic production, with which we had already collaborated on the occasion of the first Master Toiles artistic support grant. The structure had indeed noted our growing interest in helping and making known artists, obviously because of our proximity to this environment linked to our production. The first contact with Nicolas Degrange took place at the end of 2020, and even if he lives in Paris, he had already known the region by carrying out part of his studies at the Beaux-arts de Bordeaux.

What has this residency brought to Master Toiles?

First of all from a technical point of view, it questioned us. With, for example, the specific creation of round canvases in the shape of openwork discs, 1.5m high, which was a real challenge with the artist. And as obviously we had to proceed with a system of trial and error, we progressed. On a human level, there was an involvement from the start of our eight employees. In addition to the pleasure of seeing the creative process, staff have gained more self-confidence and have become aware of the value of their products, they now see the purpose of their work better. As for Nicolas, this immersion and these meetings with the staff also enriched him, he discovered a new universe.

How do you see the future of this type of sponsorship?

We launched our first Master Canvas competition in 2020, with a grant to support artists, followed by a second edition last year and a call for projects for 2022. We are therefore trying to perpetuate our action and this first residence can call others. This is an opportunity for us to work differently and develop our image, while opening up to our territory, with local collaborations such as with the city of Barbezieux, the community of municipalities of 4B or with the Chabram² association of Touzac which partly hosted Nicolas. And obviously we hope one day to offer an exhibition within the company itself, to bring visitors to discover it, which for example we have already done in partnership with the Barbezieux tourist office.

“Field Recording” until March 4 at Espinoa

“I can only express my pleasure at finally seeing the community cultural space come back to life after two and a half years of inactivity. We even welcome a nice audience for the opening of the “Field recording” exhibition, confided this Friday, February 4 to Espinoa, Michel Dubojski, mayor of Baignes and vice-president of the CDC 4B. Indeed, if around fifteen works by Nicolas Degrange populate the ground floor and mezzanine, a central creation on a base some 2.50m high, A hole in the sky through captures the visitor, even showing the rather surprising back of its circular frame with keys. “I discovered a region, a Barbezilian company, Master Toiles, and I was able to record for three months everything that passed in front of me, recognizes the young Parisian painter-sculptor. I grasped there all the true correlation between my painting and the daily work of the worker, precise gestures, mechanical know-how, meticulousness at every moment. »
In his creations, where he happily plays with going from 3D to flat tints, Nicolas Degrange likes to divert objects, to freeze the work of sunlight or even lunar light on the material at a given moment. Old parasol canvases collected, packaging of chocolate boxes come to stretch on the frames as if to scramble the counters between the techniques. “By moving my Parisian studio to the heart of the Master Toiles company, I was able to begin a rich research project on the deconstruction of the classical painting. », admits the artist. He concluded by noting the provision by the CDC of this cultural space where an impression of floating bathed in light helped the installation of the exhibition, but also by underlining the support and partnerships of the Drac and Zebra3, Bordeaux association which organized the residency.

["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(5496) "

In the business world, the success of a company depends on a plurality of factors. Among these, management occupies an essential place. Indeed, when a company is led by a good manager, the chances of it experiencing remarkable success are considerable. Today, many managers are struggling to ensure efficient management of their companies. If you are at the head of a company and wish to illustrate yourself as an excellent manager, implement the 5 tips below. This article also provides an overview of the essential qualities for a good business manager.

Take care of your appearance

It is common knowledge that the habit does not make the monk. However, you should know that the garment allows you to recognize the monk. For a manager corporate, taking care of the appearance is a necessity. Like words or the voice, clothing is a communication and marketing tool that must have a positive impact on the relational. As a business leader, you must send a good image of yourself to your employees. This is largely based on your presentation, which must be impeccable. In terms of clothing, certain elements must receive special attention. Generally, these are elements that immediately capture attention. Such is the case with shoes and watches. Regarding the latter, you can make an excellent choice on https://www.montre-en-main.fr/. This platform provides you with high quality watches designed to reveal your charisma.

Pay particular attention to the well-being of employees


In general, it is crucial for a company to have staff who feel good at work. This is a major issue that has a considerable impact on the company’s results. Thus, the good manager is the one who makes sure that his staff members are doing well. Concretely, for example, it will have to dwell on working conditions. Indeed, the malaise within a society generally starts from the difficult working conditions. When employees find themselves performing their tasks in inadequate conditions, unease sets in immediately. For this reason, the good manager must take appropriate measures that can avoid a situation of this nature. Are you wondering how to get there? The fundamental key enabling employees’ difficulties to be detected early is discussion. Take the time to chat with collaborators in order to understand their needs and the difficulties they face.

The hapiness manager: the employee’s dream manager

In France, a new concept has appeared and is making its way. It’s about hapiness manager, a term that designates the manager who creates pleasant working conditions for his employees. In various ways, the happiness manager is responsible for:

  • Create and implement a positive corporate culture capable of arousing the enthusiasm of employees at work;
  • Create the conditions that can allow each employee to integrate harmoniously with the staff;
  • Make decisions that promote team cohesion within the company.

Demonstrate productivity

In business, employees generally view the manager as a leader. As a result, they naturally tend to imitate it. For this reason, you must set a good example as a leader. You must indeed refrain from giving only directives without ever getting your hands dirty. Be the model that your collaborators will be able to imitate without hesitation. This posture is also illustrated as the best, since it allows you to enforce your directives without any difficulty.

Remain accessible to employees


In fact, it is accepted that the employees prefer to work under an approachable manager, a leader who does not rigidify the relationship between superior and subordinate. A manager loses both his credibility and his authority when his collaborators prefer not to approach him in the face of current needs. Within your company, you must do everything possible to remain accessible to your teams. Offer them the possibility of submitting all their professional concerns to you in the face of all situations. The survival of the company as well as its performance are largely based on these factors.

Furthermore, the good manager must know how to communicate. You must be able to communicate easily, especially to assign specific objectives to your teams.

We knew Tony Parker talented, gifted in the exercise of moving the lines to reach his target. But until then, we only talked about basketball, balls and titles.

The eternal playmaker has indeed wished to attribute to him the news of the day, namely the evolution of the club towards the very special status, “of a company with a mission”. With a social mission, in this case, the women’s club wanting to complement its sporting performance with a deep commitment to the benefit of women and their achievement.

“We want every woman to gain self-confidence”

“ASVEL Feminine puts its passion at the service of society so that every little girl, every woman, can realize her dreams and become the captain of her life”, now advocate the Lionesses. Champions of France in 2019, the latter therefore have the new mission of “committing to the fulfillment of women in society by supporting and implementing initiatives to combat stereotypes and promote singularities”.

A first, for a high-level sports club, proof again of the desire of the Lyonnaises to land. We want to support women to give them the keys to fulfillment,” supported Marie-Sophie Obama, a life-size illustration of this inclusion through sport. Promoted to the upper echelons of French basketball by her friend Tony Parker, the former player never lost the idea of ​​returning the ball.

Here it is now at the heart of the game. With a strategy: to multiply the testimonials, to promote professional training or even to promote certain trades. On this point, everyone seems to win. Women first !

Here it is now at the heart of the game. With a strategy: to multiply the testimonials, to promote professional training or even to promote certain trades. On this point, everyone seems to win. Women first !

Hand on the wheel, the motorist suddenly sees a banner appear on the edge of the national 7, in Solterre: “The company Simon is recruiting a confirmed mechanic [et/ou] an apprentice mechanic in Bac or BTS”, proclaims the standard. Émilie and Danny Simon took over the agricultural machinery activity in Pressigny-les-Pins three years ago. “At the beginning, we had put the banner in front of our company; but as we are at an impasse, it only affected our customers. We changed it location to impact more people“, explains Emilie Simon.

Under-resourced technical professions

With this banner, installed in October 2021, the couple hopes to overcome their difficulties in recruiting staff.

“Agricultural mechanics only interest young people who have been immersed in the environment and who intend to take over the family business.”

The small family business weighed the pros and cons before going through an Internet service provider to make its banners. It is necessary to count a budget of 200 euros excluding taxes per banner, and to prepare to replace them every six months before the material succumbs to bad weather.

In Nogent-sur-Vernisson, the investment did not cause any procrastination for the public works company Colas.

“We installed our banner between August and September to collect a maximum of CVs. We are struggling to recruit companions.”

Faced with the needs, “with a banner we rake wide”

The company thus hopes to find profiles different from those offered by more institutional channels, such as Pôle Emploi and temporary employment agencies.

“With a banner, we rake wide and we meet people to explain to them what we are looking for and see if it corresponds to their professional choice and our requirements. It’s a two-way agreement.”

Near Orléans, in Saint-Cyr-en-Val, the recruitment banner placed near the branch of the Colas company made it possible to garner a dozen contacts.

That of the Simon company brought back two people, but the fact that it was a position of “pure mechanics” repels some, while others do not have sufficient skills. Yet the need is there. Danny and Émilie had taken under their wing an apprentice who had to interrupt his studies due to a road accident. “We are a family business that pampers its staff to keep them. We train them, they know how we work and know what is expected of them, but we remain open to new things..”

A permanent contract promised by some employers

Ditto for the Colas company: “It is not a question of having a one-time reinforcement. If we offer a permanent contract, it is to build something with our employees.” Employers sometimes come up against employees who prefer to stay in the temporary work system because they do not feel the need for a stable job. Not to mention the image of the profession, not or little valued.

Today you have to “hit up” young people. These are tough jobs. But we explain to them that they can have responsibilities, they are very fond of that“, explains Stéphane Gourdeau. Colas thus organizes in-house training to develop other skills, such as mastering the operation of construction machinery.

Strong demand in the industrial sector

Michel-André Chasseing is director of the Pôle Emploi branch in Montargis. He observes needs in the health sector, but the candidate must still hold the appropriate diploma. Like the profession of caregiver: it remains accessible after training offered by Pôle Emploi and benefited 1,800 jobseekers in 2021. Jobs in the building sector are also to be filled as well as IT jobs. which have developed with the advent of teleworking. But the strongest demand in the Montargois remains in industrial trades. “On these technical jobs, we would have people likely, via a rather short adaptation period, to meet the needs of employers, but few are those who offer it.” Before specifying that the qualification rate is particularly low in the Montargis basin, where 14,000 job seekers are listed for 26,000 employers, not all of them looking for candidates.
