France: two Accor employees from Lyon give a talk about the world of business

On 9 April, Les Jardins de Lucie organised a business breakfast, supported by Solidarity Accor, as part of an insertion workshop project.

Sophie Verdier, Room Division Manager at Novotel Lyon Nord, and Carole Cursio, Regional Recruitment Manager Rhône Centre-Est, both came to talk to Les Jardins de Lucie employees about the Accor Group and the possible professions within the company.

The breakfast meeting was a perfect opportunity for participants to speak with the two women, learn more about the various activity sectors and see the company in a different light. The 11 employees who participated were able to ask any questions in a casual, relaxed ambiance.

Sophie and Carole spoke about their personal experiences, giving attendees a chance to see that jobs in the hotel and restaurant industry were completely within their reach.


The meeting was a great success, helping to enlighten not only the jobseekers but Sophie and Carole as well. Up next: organising visits of the hotels and initiation workshops.
