The new deal in local development and employment public policies lead more and more to a territorial organization.
USGERES wishes to endow the employers of the social economy with a new method for a labor-management dialog, answering the objectives of satisfaction of the beneficiaries of the activity, but also the individual development of the employees.
A process, called social barometer, was experimented. It is based on qualitative and quantitative inquiries, analyzed by a steering committee. It allows building new actions for the quality of the employment and the development of activity, and also introduces a new dynamics of professional and local animation.

In the 70s, then a educator in a shelter center, Jean-Guy Henckel becomes a “social entrepreneur” by founding a carpentry shop with some colleagues for insertion of excluded people. He creates the first “Jardin de Cocagne” which combines the principle of short distribution channels, that of work integration for persons in great difficulty and the specifications of organic farming. The network currently has more 100 gardens (jardins de Cocagne), which employs 3,000 people, half of them find a job or vocational training of their choice. It provides weekly to 20,000 families of members-consumers a basket of organic vegetables.
The social and solidarity economy (SSE) brings together a wide range of economic initiatives which comes within neither the public sector nor the capitalist field. Claude ALPHANDERY, honorary president of France Active, has launched as part of the Laboratory of Economic and Social Solidarity, with support from the Fondation Charles Leopold Mayer for the Progress of Man, a broad reflection in this perspective that led to the report “50 proposals to change course”.
Jean-Guy HENCKEL will summarize:
- From reflection to a development alternative fueled values and best practices from the ESS and which affirms the centrality of man rather than the state or capital
- From 50 operational proposals to shift the economy as a whole.
