The Extians are committed

Committed : a key term to define Extians. At Extia, we start from the individual #firstwho to best support them in their projects, both professional and personal, #thenwhat. Our CSR* approach is no exception. We are convinced that the commitment of our employees can be mobilized to serve the environment, breakthroughs, and social progress.

*Corporate Social Responsibility

The Initiative project

Small streams make big rivers. Each individual initiative can be applied for the collective good, in order to have a positive footprint on our environment. The Initiatives project was born out of this observation.

Our role: to structure this approach to support Extians in their ideas and unite them around a shared vision. Therefore, three projects were launched: an environmental axis, a social axis, and a societal axis. Each of them is driven by a group of willing collaborators eager to build a better world.

A sustainable adventure

We share a common responsibility towards the world around us. IT has a growing environmental impact, hence our commitment on this matter.

Taking care of the environment

Extians are going for it! Several clean-up and waste collection sessions were organized by employees within the vicinity of Extia's sites. We also encourage employees to use public transport, and refund 100% of the associated costs.

Reducing waste

Each of the agencies is organized to limit its environmental impact as much as possible. Eco-citizen reflexes have been adopted at the Extians initiative: digitization of HR processes, zero paper approach, reusable dishes on all our sites, specific waste collections for eco-organizations or associations, etc. We work with responsible providers. We favour low-impact and "eco-label" products the best we can for our cleaning products or office supplies orders. For our events, we work with anti-waste companies to distribute leftover food. Finally, we have set up partnerships with organic and local producers to offer our employees fruits and vegetables deliveries to our agencies.

A strong societal impact

We believe that everyone has a role to play in making the world around us more just, viable, and equitable. Companies have human, material, and financial resources, which can usefully be mobilized for solidarity commitments. While acting on its own scale, Extia aims to raise awareness, empower and support Extians in their societal initiatives.

Putting our skills in our partners hands

Since 2015, Extia has been providing associations with its technical and business expertise. We support our partners projects pro bono through our skills sponsorship system. From websites creation to application development and training, Extia is involved with more than fifty organizations. Over the past 4 years, more than 150 employees have been involved with 52 associations. Would you also like to benefit from Extia's support for one of your projects?

Acting locally

Small things matter. Extia regularly acts as a "collection point" in its branches for various associations. Whether it is to recycle clothes, children's toys, small appliances or collect food, we involve Extians in a supportive dynamic. Extia also provides material support to associations in which Extians are involved.

Supporting causes that are important to us

Every year, Extia provides financial support to associations. These are directly selected by the Extians according to the causes for which they work, through participatory surveys. In 2020, a donation to the "Planète Urgence" NGO made it possible to plant 5,000 trees in Indonesia, Madagascar, and Cameroon. In 2019, financial support was given to the associations "Rêves", which works to fulfil the wishes of seriously ill children.

A responsible employer

Being a good company to work for means guaranteeing a healthy, stimulating, and fair working environment for all employees. Extia is committed to social responsibility through the integration and promotion of Human rights, international labour standards, and corruption fighting.

Supporting gender equality

Digital and engineering professions are still predominantly male. With that in mind, Extia is proud to have a Gender Equality Index of 83 out of 100. In our last Great Place to Work© survey, 94% of employees said they were treated fairly regardless of their gender.

Acting for diversity

We are also committed to diversity, because the #who remains at the heart of our concerns. Today, over 47 nationalities are represented at Extia. 96% of Extians feel that they are treated fairly, regardless of their ethnic origin. At the same time, we have implemented a policy dedicated to disabilities conditions in the workplace, with specific support measures. Every year, we raise the awareness of our employees on that matter. 95% of Extians consider that employees are treated fairly, regardless of their possible disability.

Nurturing employability

Our ambition is to allow everyone to learn and develop their skills throughout their career at Extia. The development of skills and know-how is a major challenge for us. For several years, we have maintained a 60% access rate to training.

What about tomorrow?

At Extia, we believe that everyone has the power to make this world a better place. Don't wait any longer and share your ideas with us.
