Ardian Foundation

OUR EMPLOYEES ARE COMMITTED
Today, more than 1 employee out of 4 is involved in the Foundation, notably as mentors (corresponding with children, mentoring students from modest backgrounds).

The aim is to give them confidence and promote their academic and professional social integration.
Why mentoring?
Because that's where Ardian can add value. Ardian employees help entrepreneurs develop their business on a daily basis. They have the skills to help young people reach their academic and/or professional potential.
The values of the Ardian Foundation clearly aligns with Ardian's:

- EXCELLENCE: Ardian is constantly searching for excellence in its practices and in the search for new talent. For the Foundation, excellence translates into enhancing everyone's potential by helping young people express their best and overcome the social barriers that curb their social mobility.

- LOYALTY: for Ardian, loyalty is expressed to customers, employees and partners of the company. For the Foundation, loyalty translates into solidarity with the local community and the generosity of Ardian employees who are committed to the causes defended by the Foundation and who make donations to the Foundation.

- ENTREPRENEURSHIP: Ardian accompanies entrepreneurs on a daily basis by participating in their development. For the Foundation, the entrepreneurial spirit is reflected in the commitment of the Ardian employees who created the Foundation in 2010 and enthusiastically support it through a number of ever-increasing initiatives.
