Recruitment in compliance with the rules of ethics and diversity


We are a member of Syntec Conseil in recruitment with a very active and continuous participation (since 1992) in the work of our professional association, on all the ethical and societal issues of our profession.

François Humblot, Founder and now Partner at Grant Alexander – Executive Search was a Director of Syntec Conseil en Recrutement from 1992 to 2016 and was its President from 1996 to 2001.

Our actions and contributions :

  • Creation of a charter of ethics in the 1990s, which has been revised several times and became the Responsible Recruitment Charter in 2014.
  • In 2007, a list of commitments “for discrimination-free recruitment” was signed with the Halde (now the Rights Defender).
  • Signature of the Diversity Charter.
  • Very active participation in the promotion of the Citizen CV (from 2012) aimed at promoting the valorisation of voluntary commitments in the CV of candidates.

The group is now involved in several commissions (Recruitment, Coaching and Outplacement, SD/CSR and Promotion and Communication on gender equality).




Improving relational quality


An initiative of AFQP (Association France Qualité Performance dite France Qualité), France Qualité is a grouping of three entities and aims to federate, lead and coordinate all the networks of French public and private players dealing with quality, progress and management systems.

Its objective is to foster dialogue and exchanges between its various members, to establish common positions and disseminate recommendations, to shed light on quality and operational excellence for public authorities and any external body, as well as to deploy a national communication strategy and to ensure a role of monitoring, alert and questioning.

The group is an active member of France Qualité. In 2020, François Humblot, Partner, contributed to the writing of a chapter dedicated to the onboarding of employees for “Le Livre Blanc de la Qualité” on the importance of soft skills. You can find his contribution here.




For a humanistic and innovative leadership


The Cercle du Leadership is a Think Tank for business leaders who want to promote innovative vision and action in management and leadership.

It organises an annual cycle of conferences around a theme (in 2020: Complexities and Diversities of Time, in 2021: Our Essential Energies) and publishes a collective work that summarises the work carried out during the year. It also highlights, at an award ceremony, leaders who have distinguished themselves through their exemplary leadership.

Grant Alexander has been a partner company since 2015 and actively participates in the work of the Circle. 



A commitment to gender equality


Since 2020, Grant Alexander has been a partner in the Professional Women’s Network (PWN), an international movement of women executives and leaders working for gender equality. In 2020, Kadia Moisson, Africa Development Director and Alban Azzopardi, Managing Director of Grant Alexander – Executive Interim, led a workshop at the movement’s annual congress on the theme “Talent hunting and gender diversity… What if we went further?” in order to identify concrete ways of improving the practices of recruitment players. In 2021, the women in the network were able to benefit from a course designed to introduce them to interim management and help them, through various webinars and workshops, in their first steps in the profession.
