To improve companies' practices


Cancer@Work: a request from employees with cancer and managers

Both share the same observation: living and working with cancer has become a reality but society and companies are not prepared for it.

Based on her professional skills and her life experience, that of cancer in 2011, Anne-Sophie realizes that the subject is not or not very well addressed. Like many people, being confronted with cancer has made her evolve and has given her the audacity to undertake and act for a cause that makes sense to her: the employment of people confronted with the disease.

With a determination equal to the challenge, she mobilized 6 "Pioneer" companies and created Cancer@Work in November 2012.


A project developed by Anne-Sophie TUSZYNSKI ...

... supported by a company director: Philippe SALLE

The challenge offered to managers by Cancer@Work is new and unique in the world: to integrate the disease into their companies for and with their employees and make it a real strategic issue. It was therefore natural for Anne-Sophie to ask a major executive to speak on the subject and in 2013 she asked Philippe SALLE, then CEO of the ALTRAN group, to do so.

Convinced that the company represents one of the most powerful factors of integration of the Society, Philippe SALLE sees in Cancer@Work a real opportunity to change mentalities and practices in companies and accepts the presidency of the association, which he still holds today.


To support the integration, job retention and quality of life at work of people with illnesses.

To be the key player in making the inclusion of illness at work a shared reality.

Reconciling illness and work is a source of human and economic value creation. It is a matter of corporate social responsibility. However, the reality is quite different. Let's mobilize and act together.


A network of committed companies

For all the actors of the working world

Founded on the values of social innovation and sharing, Cancer@Work organizes its actions around 4 missions.

  • MOBILIZE COMPANIES ABOUT THE CANCER@WORK CHARTER: gather more and more companies around the Charter and raise awareness among a growing number of employees thanks to a methodology resulting from the experimental program "Pioneers" and on a collaborative intelligence approach between directors, managers and employees.

More than 10% of the French working population is represented.
  • COMMIT THEM TO ACT AND SHARE GOOD PRACTICES: offer companies and players in the world of work a place to share good practice, reflection and exchange through annual thematic meetings: symposium, co-construction workshop.

Every year: a symposium, co-construction workshops and many other times of sharing

  • MEASURE THE EXPECTATIONS OF EMPLOYEES AND THE IMPACT OF ACTIONS AT THE COMPANY AND SOCIETY LEVEL: qualify, quantify and monitor the evolution of the integration of cancer in the company through impact measurement tools: Barometer and Cancer@Work Label.

Since 2019, 25 member companies have been certified.

  • SUPPORT SOLIDARITY IN MAINTAINING EMPLOYMENT FOR SICK PEOPLE: develop solidarity actions to maintain employment for people weakened by cancer or a chronic illness.

More than 400 patients and former patients accompanied and 600 professionals mobilized.

Promoting the integration and retention of people affected by cancer or chronic illness in the workplace means enabling all employees to live and work better together. When accompanied, in a simple, coherent and integrated way, the crisis imposed by the disease

turns out to be a factor of creation of human, social, economic and societal value for the individual, the company and society.

The first step in your commitment to your employees

As a responsible and proactive act, signing the Cancer@Work Charter is a concrete expression of your commitment

Signing the Charter is the first act as a member of Cancer@Work: it commits the manager and all the company's employees.

By signing the Cancer@Work Charter, the company shows its willingness to implement concrete actions in favor of the inclusion and maintenance in employment of people directly or indirectly affected by the disease.

Under the Charter, you undertake to:

  • EVOLVE KNOWLEDGE AND REPRESENTATIONS RELATED TO CANCER AND CHRONIC DISEASE IN THE COMPANY: by raising awareness among human resources managers and managers of the issues involved in taking better account of cancer for teams and their loved ones and by informing all employees of the commitments made by the company.

  • SUPPORTING THE CREATION OF A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR PEOPLE AFFECTED BY CANCER OR CHRONIC DISEASE: by facilitating the maintenance of employment and the return to work, by supporting the teams and by adapting working conditions.

  • PROMOTING MANAGERIAL BEHAVIORS AND PRACTICES: by respecting the application of the principle of non-discrimination in terms of health in the workplace, as well as the integration and professional development of employees affected by the disease.



Managers and employees committed together

Whether you are a patient, a caregiver, an operational manager, a colleague, a human resources and occupational health department, a CSR or "disability mission" manager or a director, you too can take up the Cancer@Work challenge.

ALTRAN, AXA, ELIOR, NOVARTIS, ROCHE and SNCF were the first six companies in the world to make a formal commitment to their employees. Since then, others have joined the Club. It is by acting together faster, further and stronger that we can make the subject of integrating illness into the workplace grow. Join us!
