Epta France among the winners of the mieux vivre en entreprise award

Epta France is one of the five winners of the 13th edition of the Mieux Vivre en Entreprise (Live Better in the Company) Award thanks to the project which has envisaged the installation of the #EPTABricks refrigerated cabinets at the French premises of Hendaye. The award was launched in 2009 by the IMVE Club and organised in association with RH&M GROUP. The goal is to recognise companies and teams which implement innovative and exemplary programmes, geared to increasing “sustainable wellness in the company”.


Jean Marc Abbadie, HR Manager of Epta France declares “Epta France has been pursuing an active policy for some time geared at improving the Quality of the Life at Work and aims at becoming a point of reference for companies of the region that wish to develop in this direction. Each year, we carry out numerous actions finalised at improving the working conditions of the 550 employees of the Hendaye site. Thanks to our most recent project it is now possible to shop directly at work thanks to our #EPTABricks refrigerated cabinets. This initiative of corporate social responsibility comes from the desire to merge the improvement of worker wellness with the reduction of CO2 emissions and of electricity consumption”.


The #EPTABricks refrigerated cabinets are installed at the exit of the Hendaye site and are available, as well to the #EptaPeople, also to all the people residing in the vicinity. This service allows to pick up the online purchases of non-food products and fresh, frozen and dry foods, 7 days a week 24 hours a day. It has been operational since September 2021 and presented to employees with a dedicated communication campaign.


This initiative is a further step towards strengthening the Quality of Life at Work also in virtue of its environmental impact. #EPTABricks reduce the CO2 emissions from travel to make purchases to zero, as the shopping is done directly at work eliminating the need to make additional car journeys. Furthermore, thanks to the solar panels, the system is self-sufficient in terms of energy. The goal of the project is to promote a new model to produce electricity, from renewable sources, connected to the network and based on self-consumption, on the digitalisation of the flows and storage of energy.
