Whether it is for the BOY’S DAY / GIRL’S DAY or the International Women's Rights Day, Arkopharma continues to act for gender equality.
- BOY’S DAY /GIRL’S DAY
For 3 years in a row, Arkopharma has opened its doors to the BOYS’DAY / GIRLS’DAY on the 7th February 2020.
This day is driven by the association « Alter Egaux » in partnership with the Region, prefecture and Local Education Authority. It allows young people to discover a large panel of jobs, widen their professional ambitions and meet women and men working in fields with low gender diversity.
This way, 8 high school ambassadresses from Henri Matisse and Thierry Maulnier schools had the opportunity to discover Arkopharma’s actions for gender equality and talk with one of our female employee.
- INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'RIGHTS DAY
The International Women's Rights Day was the 8th March. On this occasion, Arkopharma has set up a display to sensitize everyone on inequalities and discriminations Women still endure nowadays in the world. Because Women’s Rights are everyone’s business.
For 6 years in a row, the Capital magazine in association with STATISTA Institute have published the ranking of « 2020 Best employers* in France »
This year, Arkopharma Laboratories are in 9th place for the « Health and Pharmacy » sector (out of 63 companies in this sector), and in the 147th place of the general ranking out of 2100 identified companies.
This ranking is the result of a study performed on 20 000 employees, through an online, completely anonymous and independent survey, whose purpose was to measure their satisfaction regarding their employers.
This is an excellent performance!
* Companies of more than 500 employees.
This year again, on Friday April 7, 2017, Bouillides Stadium hosted the 10th edition of the Inter-Company Solidarity Race of Valbonne Sophia Antipolis, organized by Special Olympics France.
The race was run by more than 220 participants from 32 companies in the region. The purpose of this charity event is to promote the development of persons with intellectual disabilities by practicing sports, recreational activities, and good health habits. It allowed the association to collect 39,200 euros, which will serve to finance the sports activities proposed by Special Olympics to persons with intellectual disabilities.
After a very respectable third-place finish in 2016, our Arkopharma team was even more ambitious this year and came in at second place in the mixed team ranking.
Our warm congratulations to Manuel Martins, Jean-Yves Rosnarho, Annabelle Ajas-Cousinou, and Fabrice Lopez for their excellent performance!
Arkopharma was present at Infarma, a trade show that welcomed more than 30,000 people over three days (March 21, 22 and 23). On this occasion, 380 exhibitors came to present their latest products as well as trends in the pharmaceutical sector.
Conferences were given on current topics and issues such as services provided by pharmacies, drugs prescribed by hospitals, and illness prevention through dietary supplements.
Arkopharma was present, showcasing its new 100% natural products and offering a unique experience by presenting a real observation beehive in order to raise public awareness of the importance of beekeeping.
Each year, bees are steadily disappearing from the face of our planet due to climate change and incendiary fires. Arkopharma Laboratories is particularly attentive to this problem and is working with the Spanish organization Ecocolmena. Together, they have protected more than 40 million bees to date.
As part of the 7th edition of Industry Week, on March 24, Arkopharma opened its doors to students and job seekers in order to share its expertise and present its various professions.
In the morning, a visit followed by a discussion session was organized for fourth-year bioengineering students at Polytech Nice. It provided them with an opportunity to talk with Arkopharma experts—some of whom graduated from the same course—in fields such as quality, regulations, or development, and to get a practical idea of these key professions in the pharmaceutical industry.
The afternoon visit, organized in partnership with the Nice Local Mission and the Local Employment Plan (PLIE) teams, was dedicated to young job seekers from the region. During a visit of the production facilities, they were also able to speak with Group employees and learn about production jobs.
