An example of action with the Foudation "La France s'engage"
My name is Véronique Charlot and I am in charge of the Total’s employee volunteering program.
My name is Christine Roumeas, and I have been a geophysicist at Total for 9 years, and I study seismic data to find new oil fields.
How does Total’s commitment take shape?
In 2018 Total launched a program called “Action!”. Action! is a program that gives the possibility for each Total employee to devote up to three days of their working time every year to citizenship initiatives which are in four priority areas of the Total Foundation.
Total made a recent promotional campaign on Total Foundation, and I found this partnership interesting.
What is the connexion between Total and La France s’engage Foundation?
La France s’engage Foundation is an association that Total has been supporting since the initiative was launched in 2014. We provide financial support, but not only. Through the program Action!, we give to each employee the possibility to support the Foundation La France s’engage.
What is your role today?
Today, I’m instilling applications so today I’m one of the 20 Total employees who proofread the applications forms. It’s always impressive to see the very broad scope of people’s commitment, it’s impressive and beautiful.
My role is to facilitate deliberations at my table we are in charge of making sure that methodology is correct, that the evaluation criterias are the right ones and to discover if there are disparities in character for example, if one person is more talkative or more shy than others. We want to make sure that everyone can express themselves equally and fairly.
Your final world?
The day is not over but so far it’s been a good experience.
Thank to “La France s’engage” for this beautiful partnership, we will continue to be by your side as we have been since 2014 and we will continue to support with you associations that deserve to be supported.
We thank our partner for the involvement of their employees.
