The Solidarity AccorHotels endowment fund celebrates its 10th anniversary during Solidarity Week 2018!

10 years of action to demonstrate solidarity, with a mission that has grown stronger year after year: to combat the economic and social exclusion of disadvantaged and vulnerable people, by means of training and aiding integration into work.

10 years of commitment on the ground

Solidarity AccorHotels, it’s 340 projects supported financially around the world, thanks to the involvement of over 20,000 AccorHotels employees! Precious help for organizations and for developing new training programs, but also, and especially, for the 172,800 direct beneficiaries who have regained their independence and stability in or through their return to employment.

10 years of continued support, close ties and human connections

Conducted by consultancy firm Kimso, a study was conducted to analyze the initiatives undertaken over the past ten years and understand their effects.

70% of the projects provided some form of support in relation to professional integration. The beneficiaries of the organizations supported are predominantly disadvantaged people (living below the poverty line for 80% of the organizations), who are often young, unemployed and stigmatized. 

The study also highlighted the standout feature of Solidarity AccorHotels’ efforts, namely a commitment that goes beyond just financial support and incorporates the human connection.

Solidarity Week

Since 2008, Solidarity Week has grown within AccorHotels properties and headquarters around the world. Each year, over the course of a week in December, it encourages employees to participate in charity initiatives, providing a practical response to the needs expressed by local organizations.
