Good Practice Information

The GE2A is a good example how companies can collaborate in insuring the recruitment, jobs, management and training of employees and thus can respond to a need for human resources sharing in the service field. The Groupement d’Employeurs Associatifs d’Auvergne (GE2A) is a structure that unites several companies active in the field of sports activities. It is a non profit association, which recruits staff to make them available for its members, in order to respond to durable occasional jobs, part time or for the season, depending on needs. GE2A offers a tripartite type of employment: the employees sign a contract with the GE2A and work in the different member companies that form the group.
These GE2A are instruments providing personnel to companies in the form of a voluntary association (association loi 1901) (non-profit making) or a cooperative company. A "GE" can be a response to a need for human resources sharing in the service field. The objective is to recruit shared employees who are then provided according to the needs of the GE2A members. The obligations of the members, users of personnel, are the same as for temporary work. But unlike the latter, the provision of the workforce is carried out internally. Finally, unlike temporary work, the groups of employers have the advantage of offering member companies a "qualification of employees".  

Evidence of success

The GE2A has 150 members, 24 000 hours of intervention and 80 qualified employees.
