Organized by French TV channel, BFM Business, the Cercle de l'Entreprise et de l'Intérêt Général awards recompense companies that work for the common good. The goal of the Cercle is to foster new initiatives in 5 key areas that are important to French society: employment, education and training, health, security and the environment.
Founded by French social welfare group, Klesia, the Cercle de l'Entreprise et de l'Intérêt Général brings together entrepreneurs and business leaders who are committed to dealing with the issues that affect society today. It is composed of eleven men and women who embody the diversity of France's entrepreneurial landscape and who share the same vision of the crucial role that companies have to play in working for the common good.
For the 2017 edition, five programmes were broadcast in partnership with BFM Business and the Le Journal du Dimanche newspaper. The candidates chosen presented their entries and passed a "viva voce" exam during which they were interviewed by the members of the Cercle. The winning initiatives were chosen for each category and the awards presented at the closing ceremony on October 19.
