HOME CRISIS # FRANCE :: COMPANIES PROVIDE DWELLINGS TO THEIR WORKERS

France :: In front of the real estate crisis, companies get organized to help their employees to find accommodation. In some regions (Paris, South of France, …), home crisis has big economic consequences for companies : difficulties to recruit, staff turnover, stress and delays of the workers because of the  duration of the routes. Without forgetting the mobility.

> ” It is almost impossible to make confirmed executives to come in Paris. From 35 years, the workers go away somewhere else, where they find better conditions “, underlines Michel Clair, author of a report on the accommodation of the workers of Ile-de-France for the Chamber of Commerce and industry of Paris. The price of the housing environment and the structure of the Parisian park, mainly consisted of small housing, are deteriorated by the importance of the family reorganizations in the capital.

> “If I’m not working as a social worker, I’ll never get or keep qualified workers”, said another boss (from a famous hostel in south of France).

> The Post office invested, between 2011 and 2013, 20 million euros to accommodate his employees.
It is beyond the legal obligations :
TOTAL :: 2 800 POST-OFFICE EMPLOYEES’ FAMILIES ACCOMMODATED EVERY YEAR
> Another story ::

Loïc Rigault, boss of a hypermarket Leclerc in Saint-Nazaire, recognizes to be lacking information. ” We are guilty of this misunderstanding. But our job is the mass-market retailing, not social housing! “. Because of the lack of legal information and to save time, he preferred to build a building of 22 housing to accommodate his staff.
> For smaller companies, facing the same problems, the solutions are much more difficult to provide.
