Our network of welfare assistants

This network is responsible for listening to, advising and supporting any INRAE staff who apply, and can assist them with administrative tasks and finding solutions to professional or personal problems:

  • Professional problems:
    - adaptation to a workstation;
    - difficulties in the working environment;
    - integration following a move or recruitment;
    - preparation for retirement;
    - readjustment following lengthy leave for illness;
    - social rights.
  • Personal problems:
    - difficulty balancing the budget;
    - issues related to illness, disability or an accident;
    - accommodation;
    - individual and family law (separation, divorce, birth, death, etc.).

When both a staff member and a parent or partner is affected, problems can be addressed in a global manner that covers all aspects of life. The welfare assistants can help to solve problems alongside other INRAE networks and external partners, in an atmosphere of trust and neutrality.

Welfare assistants work with staff members within an ethical framework based on an obligation to respect professional confidentiality. They are present for sessions in all INRAE Centres.

Exceptional credits

In a critical or unpredictable situation, an exceptional, non-reimbursable credit can help staff members to deal with certain problems.

Working with the applicant, the value of this credit is determined by the welfare assistant in your Centre and/or by the Coordinator of Welfare Services.
