What is Newbridges ?

NewBridges is the alliance between two employee relations experts who have decided to join forces to help companies understand emerging international employee relations issues and risks and to develop solutions, anchored in social dialogue, to answer.


These actors have a unique international network in multinational companies, in international organizations (European Union, ILO, OECD, etc.), among French and international trade union organizations. They have extensive knowledge of the conditions of social dialogue in the main countries where French groups operate.

What does Newbridges offer ?

  • Inform company management on international issues as well as on emerging risks (legal, reputational, investor and employer brand risks) resulting from social practices in the countries where they operate, vis-à-vis their employees direct or those in their value chain.


  • Share the best practices of companies operating on an international scope to respond to major international social issues and their developments.


  • Support the management of companies on the social aspect of their transnational projects (MA, global restructuring….) And on the development of a global strategy for social dialogue.

  • Train the Corporate Social Relations teams, international staff representatives and directors on these international subjects.
