The OFII signs a citizens’ charter for integration through employment with companies in Limousin and New Aquitaine

The French Office of Immigration and Integration is committed to the integration of migrants through employment as part of its mission.

The Territorial Directorate of the OFII in Limoges works with companies in Limousin and New Aquitaine regions in the context of job placements for its refugee users. In order to provide a framework for these recruitments and to strengthen cooperation with companies for the sustainable and effective professional integration of refugees, the OFII wished to set up a deontological charter of “good conduct”.

A citizens’ charter to strengthen OFII’s partnership with businesses

This charter bears witness to a desire to innovate and renew the OFII’s partnership with the region’s businesses in the common respect of republican values and a human, supportive vision of work.

20 OFII partner companies and organisations signed this charter, during a meeting chaired by Joëlle SOUM, Secretary General of OFII.

A continued commitment to the integration of migrants through employment

This signing ceremony is the first step in OFII’s strong commitment to the integration of refugees through employment. From now on, any company wishing to work with the Territorial Directorate of OFII in Limoges must adhere to this citizens’ charter.

Following on from the successful information sessions on “intercultural management” for businesses, this partnership charter demonstrates the ongoing work of the OFII’s Limoges Territorial Office to provide the best possible support to users and partners involved in helping refugees access employment and ensure their sustainable inclusion in businesses.
