Social insertion at the heart of the Metz congress center

It was on the occasion of the traditional end of structural work lunch organized by EC Grand Est on 12th May that the main actors of the Robert Schuman Congress Center realized a step-by-step on actions to promote VSEs And SMEs and access to employment through insertion on this project.

The Congres Center design, construction, maintenance and maintenance contract (CREM) includes a commitment to the employment of 30,000 hours of insurable persons throughout the studies and works phases.
Social clauses are a genuine tool in the service of vocational integration. They allow a return to employment for people who are far away from it, where they find it difficult to find them (young people under 26 with no work experience, long-term unemployed, Seniors, handicapped workers, etc.) in several trades: carcass, carpentry, carpentry, painting, electricity, plumbing, partition, administrative secretariat, etc.
The members of the Steering Committee dedicated to the Insertion on site, and the mission manager of the social clauses of the City of Metz and Metz Métropole in particular, accompany the integration process throughout the operation, Information to companies on the different possibilities of implementation of the clause and the mobilization of employment partners for the search of candidates.
As of 30 April 2017, 74% of the 30 000 contractual hours had already been entrusted to persons in integration, of which nearly 10% were women and 30% were under 26.
The CREM contract also includes a contractual commitment to mobilize TPE-SMEs and craftsmen, up to 30% of the total amount of works contracts.
As of May 1, 2017, the target is exceeded and reaches 156%, of which 50% is entrusted to small and medium-sized businesses in the Greater East region. To date, 82 VSE-SMEs have been entrusted with a mission within the site of design and construction of the Congress Center.
