Since 1975, the Groupe IGS has been contributing to discussions about the workplace and future jobs by gathering academics and practitioners to address the issues of employment in its research laboratories. Research and projects, conducted in partnership with companies, support the programs provided by the Group through a thorough analysis of the professional world and its evolution.


Research objectives:

Increase knowledge

Research enables people to develop new skills, create new ways of thinking, as well as devise and circulate tools meant for companies and economic and social stakeholders.
