CEPOVETT, employer brand
While the health crisis has led to radical changes in the organization of work, CEPOVETT employees have maintained their activities thanks to remote work.
More than ever, human resources teams had a role to play in managing the health crisis, preventing stress among telecommuting employees and preventing employee depression or burnout. In addition, the company has demonstrated its ability to engage its employees around a shared project and unifying values. Affirming its raison d'être, its missions and its post-Covid strategic vision, the company was able to maintain team cohesion despite the distance. The commitment of men and women is one of the major challenges of this post-Covid period and a prerequisite for the resumption of activities. The employer brand is a performance lever for the ambitious CEPOVETT 2022-23 recruitment plan, both for the company's attractiveness to new talent and for the growth of its own employees.
Telework, a factor of modernization of the information system
While telecommuting became widespread during the health crisis, CEPOVETT did everything possible to ensure that its employees were operational and efficient.
Equipped with an IT infrastructure capable of absorbing the increase in server connections, the group quickly deployed secure, collaborative and ergonomic tools. In this way, it has maintained the productivity level of its teams as well as the continuity of services for its customers. Video conferencing has made it possible to maintain contact with internal and external contacts from a distance. The IT teams were also mobilized to assist employees in learning how to use the tools and applications. Finally, data security was ensured by installing a virtual private network (VPN). Although satisfying, the experience revealed that to preserve social ties and team cohesion, new, more interactive solutions - such as instant messaging - should be tried out.
Well-being at work, the virtues of yoga
Well-being at work is a major issue for companies, which are aware that the quality of life at work has a real impact on absenteeism, the attractiveness of the company and its performance. Driven by a committed HR policy, initiatives are being put in place to improve the daily lives of employees, particularly through external collaborations.
Yoga is one of these solutions, offering employees a moment of relaxation and letting go in the workplace. For CEPOVETT, offering yoga sessions was an additional opportunity to create a bond between employees, outside the professional sphere.
This moment of sharing and exchange is particularly appreciated by the teams who have renewed their desire to continue to participate in these sessions, made possible by the company's support.

Better sharing of information

With a new interactive information sharing system, it has increased the ability of employees to better share in the life of the company and to interact with each other in a multi-site context. This digital display tool, which complements video-conferencing, allows teams to better communicate their daily activities.
