The mission of the ARCE consists of the following:
We offer creative workshops and summer camps for children from 4 years old
Study measures suited to your business
We conducted several surveys among companies and their employees to :
identify the difficulties of balancing work and family, to assess the needs of families, and to assess the number of spaces required for a company crèche.
We conducted this type of study for Firmenich SA Liebherr machines, Reuters, Sottas, TPG, and UCB SA Farchim.
In 2004, the following companies joined to Children Daycare service: Goldman Sachs & Co, Manufacture Roger Dubuis SA, Residence Jura and Sanofi. To date, more than forty companies have benefited from this service. We have since established a solid partnership with GEM member companies.
We offer an evaluation of existing services for the family (collective agreement, benefits, company bylaws, ect.), assistance in organizing childcare and a complementary selection of measures that are appropriate to your business running.
We also help companies under mandate on the implementation of measures for "work life balance", such as organising working time, job sharing. Exchanging experiences and good practices with members are also instructive.
Improvements in this field promote equality of opportunities between women and men in professional life, and as such, we have conducted projects with the financing departement of the federal Bureau of Equality.
