Es’tête - a SCOP (Cooperative Enterprise).
Since it was founded in 2003, Es’tête has distinguished itself as an independent consultancy firm that is proud of its robust values promoting close client relationships, pro-activeness and commitment – both to clients and candidates – with a key focus on “People”. As an organisation, Es’tête is first and foremost a close-knit team based on an organisational model that focuses on collaboration and equality. This model fosters the growth of all its staff as well as encouraging them to contribute their ideas and suggestions. Our core strategy involves training our teams to continue offering our partners top-quality advice and services, while promoting collective development as well as the professional fulfilment of every team player.
Given this analysis of our identity, the idea to transform Es’tête into a cooperative enterprise originated within the team itself and was quickly embraced by all our staff members. Satisfied that the seven principles* of cooperation aligned with the vision shared by all Es’tête staff, we enthusiastically decided to fully become a SCOP entity (Cooperative Enterprise) so we could passionately defend the commitments and values that are dear to us.
