Mobility Seminar: 5th edition of the encounter for employees on assignment in France and abroad

The 5th Petit Forestier Mobility Encounter was held in Marseille on 24-25 June.

Created 5 years ago by Eric Forestier, Managing Director of Petit Forestier International, this key annual event brings together the employees on assignment in the international network and increases cohesion among the teams.
The 2016 event drew 35 participants from 10 countries, including France, ranging from country managers to employees from our internal programmes (Mousquetaires*) to young people on V.I.E. (international business volunteering) contracts.

The seminar, which is a key driver for Petit Forestier's international development, provides an annual opportunity to take stock of the situation in the countries where we operate and exchange different perspectives.
The encounter brings together a wide range of cultures, ages, backgrounds (business school, engineering school, etc.), roles (sales, administration, branch managers, operations, etc.) and experiences, showcasing both the company's diversity and the wealth and common interest that Petit Forestier promotes in all of its countries, thanks to a shared "language" of customer relationships. The event also offers an opportunity for Petit Forestier to highlight its open managerial approach and its ability to turn individual employees' energy into a competitive advantage.

This seminar contributes to creating a common core which boosts our brand internationally.

Sustainable Development

A full time preoccupation

Looking resolutely to the future and concerned for the world of tomorrow, Petit Forestier attempts to integrate sustainable development into the daily life of the company and has responsible social, economic and environmental policies that take these challenges fully into account.

Our approach involves the implementation of corresponding practices and protocols in all areas of the business. We demand efforts by our suppliers and subcontractors, involve our employees and, in the eyes of public authorities and institutions, we represent a reliable partner. We respect and encourage regulations in the areas of the environment, labour and economic development, including in our international network. This strategy concerns all our services, products, purchases, properties, human resources…

The partnerships developed with manufacturers and institutions are just one illustration of our commitment. Our efforts also take the form of civic actions, initiating or participating in long term projects capable of producing benefits for the whole community.



For Petit Forestier, the choice of a supplier is based on ability, reliability and trust.
After signing an agreement, Petit Forestier issues a national listing for application in the French network and the international sites.

Petit Forestier favours loyal partnerships with its suppliers and, above and beyond a simple commercial arrangement, often works with suppliers in the early stages when launching new products.
