In addition to these conferences, which will help staff find ways to think and act differently, there will also be a number of events and workshops in our offices worldwide devoted to wellbeing, teamwork and personal efficiency:

  • Smoothies & juice bars, 
  • Introduction to the Japanese Do-In technique, breathing practices and yoga, 
  • Events with naturopaths and dieticians,

Work-life quality is a key priority at Natixis

Natixis launched its “Work & Life at Natixis” initiative in early 2016, aimed at stepping up moves to promote wellbeing, health and work-life quality for its staff. 

In addition to the charter of 15 pledges to promote work-life balance, Natixis also signed a company-wide agreement aimed at further fostering work-life quality, which is a real source of efficiency, sustainable performance and commitment.

This agreement is based on four key areas:

  • Working conditions: enable all staff members to produce high-quality work (comply with charters on e-mail best practices and best practices for meetings, improve access to information and digital tools, participatory approach, discussion groups on work, etc.).
  • Relationships and cooperation: strengthen our teamwork and enhance our social connections in an increasingly digital workplace (community and quality of relationships, development of management skills, new trends in workspaces, etc.).
  • Wellbeing at work: bolster programs to prevent health risks and promote work-life balance (information platform for parents, concierge service, childcare, continued roll-out of remote working, promotion of involvement in associations and solidarity initiatives, etc.).
  • Support for transformation: take steps to better address the personal impact of transformation programs for staff and increase consideration of the human dimension in change management.

Natixis was also awarded the “Top Employer France” certification for the second year in a row in 2018, hailing the quality of our HR policies and our commitment to creating a high-quality working environment.
