THALÈS SUPPORTS PSE

The Thalès group has become our first partner in wage rounding! The 37,000 employees of Thalès can choose PSE and its project to fight school dropouts as the beneficiary of their centimes of wages rounded to a euro each month. This is made possible thanks to Microdon.org (rounding of cash, rounding wages, ...) in which PSE is a registered charity. Do not hesitate to propose to your company that they set up a system of “microdon”!
