A mission – a challenge
  • Allow to the person who is benefiting of the disability insurance or in social difficulties to improve its autonomy with a work and an adapted environment and doing so be integrated in the world of work and in the society.
  • Offer to our clients quality services and products in conformity with their requirements
  • Make all the partners fully satisfied

The foundation responds to the Polyval charter as well as to the honour code of INSOS (national branch Association for people with disabilities).


Social role

The Polyval Foundation offers a paid and adapted work depending of the health and the individual capabilities of people benefiting of a disability interest. In our different workshops, we offer them a large choice of industrial activities in outsourcing or own production.


After the signing of an employment contract, which is specific to their insured status, the employees are hired in the industrial workshops depending on their place of residence and / or their choice.


By the annual setting of personalized objectives, we promote the development or the maintaining of the competences of each person. Managers and social-instructors listen to them to help, reinsure them and give them advice in their professional workday.

Parallel, a social-professional manager works closely with the woprkshops, makes the link between the families and the social partners and ensures the wellness of the employees.
