Orif and iXion Services SA sign a partnership agreement

Every day, by combining training, support and integration, we are simultaneously immersed in the heart of social cohesion and the economic fabric. With this dual positioning, this mission and our commitment, Orif and iXion Services SA have launched an exclusive collaboration.

After careful reflection, iXion Services SA and Orif, guided by a desire to make a decisive contribution to a "better way of life" for vulnerable populations, at risk of exclusion, and for society to "live together", have decided to bring their skills centres together.

Together, we have agreed on a partnership aiming to develop specialised dual mode-based "Service Desk" training, bringing together the theoretical aspects and the practical aspects of the profession.

This is a matter of validating, in addition to the "IT help" AFP or the 3-year "IT engineer" CFC that will succeed it, a high-quality specialisation relating to user support/Service Desk, to promote the professional integration of people suffering from health problems and to meet the staffing needs of IT environments.

At the end of their training, apprentices (if successful in their exams) will receive a certificate of vocational training (AFP/CFC) with certification from Orif iXion Services SA in User Support/Service Desk.

Vincent Scheidegger, CEO: "As a training company, it is important for me to be able to help motivated and skilled people. Especially in this current context that is marked by a chronic shortage of computer scientists in the market, it is a duty to provide opportunities for retraining people with a real chance of successful reintegration. »

Stéphane Francey, Director of Orif Pomy: "The training and professional integration of each person is about rights and equal opportunities, but is only made concrete by the companies themselves. By taking part in an initiative to integrate people with health problems represents an opportunity for companies, which not only benefit from their professional skills, especially within a field that needs new employees, but also benefit from the skills these people have acquired in the face of adversity. Our partnership can only be a win-win solution.
