Employees participate in a virtual room where they can discuss seated around a table, animating alter egos that reproduce their features. Virtual reality headsets track and replicate the gestures of owners, while in the environment notes can be taken and files from the computer can be transported.

For some time now, the Facebook group has launched into the virtual reality sector thanks to the takeover of the specialized company Oculus, and the many versions of the viewers offered on the market to date already offer a vast catalog of VR experiences for every taste. The last one was presented in these hours and is something special: a virtual meeting room in which colleagues from the same company can enter, converse and collaborate. Dubbed Horizon Workrooms, the app was featured on Oculus Quest 2 viewers and is aimed at employees and businesses in a smart work and remote work regime.

How Facebook VR Meetings Work

With Horizon Workrooms, users wearing the headset are projected into a meeting room where they can meet the virtual alter egos of their colleagues. Their appearance is that of Oculus avatars, configurable at will to recreate the traits of their owners. The hand gestures are picked up by the viewer’s cameras and automatically reproduced by your avatar to help all interlocutors express themselves even with body language, while the speech comes from the microphone which also generates the movement of the mouth reproduced by the characters in virtual reality. Users in the room can take quick notes on virtual sheets, using their hands as if they were writing with a pen on a surface. Your computer’s desktop and keyboard can also be followed by the viewer and transported to the virtual environment, so that they can be used for taking notes even during meetings; By connecting the appropriate desktop and laptop application to the viewer, it is also possible to bring files and screenshots from your device into the meeting, to show them to all participants.

The idea is to use a tool primarily dedicated to next-generation gaming and social interactions to create more immersive meetings than those currently taking place on video calling platforms such as Skype and Zoom. But obviously, the future imagined by Facebook will have many difficulties to settle: all employees who wish to attend a meeting in Horizon Workrooms will have to have an Oculus Quest 2 viewer, or be content to participate in a version in two. dimensions of the call, which removes all meaning from the experience.

The former senior executive of Schneider Electric studied the issue of ecological transition with pragmatism. ?I assembled my steering committee, and I told them that I had a new motivation: to save the planet! “, remembers the manager of the company of seventy-five employees, located in Champagne-au-Mont-d’Or (Rhône), north-west of Lyon.

It remained to convince the troops. ?We have always been committed to a very high quality approach to designing our products. I thought about applying the same rigor to reduce the carbon footprint of our company as a whole. The objective was to achieve carbon neutrality, not to multiply by five the turnover ?, says François Duchâteau, 61 years old.

Carbon neutrality is now 98% reached, that is to say, the balance between the C02 issued by the activity of the company and that saved or compensated. Examples of CO emission reduction2 : the development of teleworking reduced employee travel by 28%. The company promotes the purchase of clean vehicles through loans of 2,000 euros, without interest, from its employees, with a donation of 500 euros if the vehicle is used for the journey to work.

In terms of compensation, SLAT supplies electricity to its employees’ vehicles for their personal needs. Another key objective is to double the lifespan of products. The CEO now wants to divide carbon dioxide emissions by five. ?Carbon neutrality is a limited concept, which can be misleading. Let’s stop talking about money before considering the climate issue. It is my priority, and by doing that, I have the impression of progress, of preserving the activity of the employees, of thinking of their families ?, adds the entrepreneur.

[content] => Array ( [encoded] =>

The rise of the cloud tends to make people forget that a server still has its place in business. Whether it is to host business applications, store and share files, offer web services or even replace workstations.

Share data and printers

The most common use of a server is file sharing. User data is concentrated on the server, with data sharing possible between several people, according to rules defined by management and the business lines. Such a server also often performs printer sharing tasks, while serving as a receptacle for the scans carried out by the latter.

The trend is to bring all company data together on the file server, whether shared or not, allowing backup operations to be centralized. If necessary, the backups of the local workstations are also uploaded to the server. Coupled with a remote backup space (for example in the cloud), a file server can effectively protect data.

Note that the sharing of files and printers passes more and more often through microservers, even NAS (Network Attached Storage, network storage systems) which are specifically dedicated to this use.

Deploy business applications

One of the central uses of servers remains the deployment of business applications, such as an ERP. Users will access this application remotely, either through a local client installed on each machine, or – and this has become the most common case – by connecting to the application through a web browser.

This way of using applications is called client-server. It is sometimes assisted by the server-server, for example when the application installed on a first server accesses information from a database located on a second server.

Business software publishers tend to impose strict rules for the deployment of their applications, with the adoption of a server reserved solely for this use. However, the rise of the environmental problem and the generalization of virtualization are pushing together several uses within the same server. This consolidation of multiple applications and services on a single machine results in easier administration of the IT infrastructure.

Deploy web services

For a long time, servers were used to manage corporate email. With the rise of webmail, this use tends to disappear. However, the server remains an interesting intermediary between the Internet and the local network. It can thus filter and secure flows, but also accelerate transfers through cache systems.

The implementation of a LAMP or WAMP stack (Linux / Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP) allows the company to create and deploy business applications at low cost. Some SaaS applications can also be deployed on private servers, allowing companies to regain control over these services, and the data they manipulate.

Finally, the server can open up to the world, for example by hosting the organization’s website, or by making certain business applications accessible from the outside. The democratization of fiber and the allocation of fixed public IP addresses to companies facilitate this type of use. However, beware of security problems!

Group workstations

Thanks to technologies like RDP, a server can host the workstations of the company. Employees then connect to their work environment from a minimalist PC or a thin client. The applications and data being entirely stored on the server, the work of the IT department is greatly facilitated.

With good server security and a sufficient speed internet connection, it will also be possible to connect to your IT environment from a location outside the walls of the company. An asset for the world of teleworking.

In the first lockdown, we had learned to add books – a lot. Since the spring, the use of the wallpaper has become uniform, visios sometimes bring in contact people who have chosen the same (the white model in its chic and sober black frame, or the large glass open space for those who find their workspace too small).

As some management realized that you could promote your business remotely, the third lockdown saw the explosion of brightly colored backgrounds with the company name inlaid. This gives the Athos executive the air of Monsieur Sylvestre, of the World Company, as ?Les Guignols de l’Info? mocked it. For the start of the school year, we think about how to communicate with real backgrounds. “We should see, for example, a forest of models behind us”, suggests architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Our offices will look like the walls of sports sponsors during their press conferences.

Casting of stalagmites from folders

At the start of the school year, the use of false funds for internal discussions will be interpreted above all as an admission of absence from the office. It will happen that people wear a mask in front of a screen to make believe that they are on site. The ultimate will be to show an open closet door, or the gray squares of the false ceiling. Any detail that affirms that “I am not in Noirmoutier”.

?The Covid has been a huge accelerator in reducing storage space. »Karin Gintz, Vitra Sales Director

The stalagmites of files on the desks will continue to melt. As early as 1975, in an issue of Business Week dedicated to the workspace of the future, experts imagined the disappearance of paper. We were used to this not happening: as soon as a company ventured towards “zero paper”, we knew that the files were stashed in cupboards, lockers, even car trunks.

This time, there it is. The circulation of documents was reduced at the time when it was believed that the Covid-19 was essentially hand-carried. The suspended file which, from the 1980s, revolutionized office life, could disappear, and with it its plastic ruler with label impossible to put on. “The Covid has been a huge accelerator in the reduction of storage spaces”, acknowledges Karin Gintz, Vitra Sales Director. The office furniture specialist predicts a return of the locker, where you leave your things in the evening.

The Ombrelle brand has a single objective: “to protect all skin types from UV rays by offering everyday clothes in which you feel good”. (© Ombrelle)

It is in the middle of winter, on Tuesday February 23, 2021, thatOcéane Tobé-Loriot launched its daily anti-UV clothing brand called Ombrelle.

This former ISEG graduate from Toulouse (Haute-Garonne) and ex-project manager at Airbus, turned to the ready-to-wear industry in the summer of 2020 with the ambition to protect all skin types from the sun.

This project, I have matured for ten years. Since my mom was diagnosed with skin cancer. Its sun capital has fallen to zero and each exposure makes it take a risk. While accompanying her, I realized that in terms of clothing, she had the “choice” between protection or aesthetics but never both. As a result, she had to fall back on lycra clothes which are not always pleasant to wear, especially in summer. “

Océane Tobé-Loriot, founder of Umbrelle

Alone on the UV ready-to-wear market

During the first confinement the young woman makes a market research and quickly realizes that a niche is to be taken.

Today in France, the anti-UV market is in fact turned exclusively to sport or the beach, nothing in terms of everyday clothing. With this in mind, the Toulousaine took the plunge and created her business.

The brand is aimed at all women. Those in good health like those who suffer from skin problems and want to protect their skin from the sun. If the sun’s rays at low doses have beneficial effects on the skin, it can quickly become dangerous. We all have a sun capital and we must take care of it. “

UPF50 certified fabrics

For this, Ombrelle offers models made from UPF50 certified fabrics. A protection factor that you are used to seeing on your sunscreen tubes (20, 30, 50 +). Currently, UPF 50+ is the highest capacity achieved and means the garment protects covered areas up to 97.5% against UV A and UV B radiation.

The range of clothing and accessories includes a t-shirt in two colors, a blouse, pants, a long dress, a hat, two parasols and gloves.

Most of the pieces in the collection are designed to provide modularity. For example, the collar of the dress can come off to reveal the neckline. The sleeves can be rolled up on several levels. “

These parasol umbrellas protect both sun and rain with its anti-UV treatment (UV / P50) and waterproof fabric.

For more responsible fashion

More than design, Océane Tobé-Loriot’s challenge is to find aesthetic materials, éco friendly and above all effective against UV rays. To ensure this, the business manager works with an independent laboratory that tests the tissues.

The t-shirts are in Supima cotton. 45% stronger than regular cotton, it’s also lighter and softer. Then, to increase the protective performance of certain materials, treatments with zero substances harmful to the skin or the environment are used. “

Always in this approach of a more responsible fashion, the Toulousaine has bet on a 100% pre-order sales system. With this model: no physical point of sale, no waste, no stock and no unsold items. The purchase is made on the brand’s e-commerce site. Delivery time is included between 4 and 6 weeks.

?The first feedback is positive. We have had a lot of inquiries for children’s and men’s clothing. It’s super motivating! Prototypes are already in progress and we hope to release a collection intended for children soon. For men, it will be more for 2022, ?concludes Océane Tobé-Loriot with a smile.

For more responsible fashion

More than design, Océane Tobé-Loriot’s challenge is to find aesthetic materials, éco friendly and above all effective against UV rays. To ensure this, the business manager works with an independent laboratory that tests the tissues.

The t-shirts are in Supima cotton. 45% stronger than regular cotton, it’s also lighter and softer. Then, to increase the protective performance of certain materials, treatments with zero substances harmful to the skin or the environment are used. “

Always in this approach of a more responsible fashion, the Toulousaine has bet on a 100% pre-order sales system. With this model: no physical point of sale, no waste, no stock and no unsold items. The purchase is made on the brand’s e-commerce site. Delivery time is included between 4 and 6 weeks.

?The first feedback is positive. We have had a lot of inquiries for children’s and men’s clothing. It’s super motivating! Prototypes are already in progress and we hope to release a collection intended for children soon. For men, it will be more for 2022, ?concludes Océane Tobé-Loriot with a smile.

The control of the health pass, necessary since Monday, August 9 in a large number of establishments open to the public, suddenly exploded the demand for security agents: when their own employees do not have time, many establishments are have been turning for several weeks to this specialized staff, authorized to verify the famous QR code. “They are in great demand, there was already a shortage of agents on July 9 for the reopening of nightclubs”, comments Laurent Lutse, national president of the Cafés, breweries and nightclubs branch at the Union des métiers et des industries de l’hôtellerie (UMIH).

Hervé-Georges Bascou, lawyer in Nîmes, specialist in labor law and URSSAF control and litigation, explains everything about the establishment of the health pass in companies.

Objectif Gard: Before going into detail, can you recall the principles of the “sanitary pass” in companies …

Hervé-Georges Bascou: Yes, it consists of the digital (via the TousAntiCovid application) or paper presentation of health proof: vaccination, on condition of having a complete vaccination schedule; the negative result of a virological test dating less than 72 hours or the result of a positive RT-PCR or antigen test attesting to recovery from Covid-19, dating at least 11 days and less than 6 months. Finally, if not, the document attesting to a medical contraindication to vaccination can be presented instead of the aforementioned documents. The obligation to present a health pass for professionals working in the places concerned applies from August 30, 2021 except when their activity takes place in spaces not accessible to the public (eg: offices), outside of regular hours. opening to the public. For employees under the age of 18, this obligation applies from September 30, 2021.

What can the business manager do if employees refuse to be vaccinated or to present a health pass?

Before answering the question, I would like to remind you first of all that an employee is subject to the vaccination obligation or the production of the health pass only for places or activities falling within the scope defined by the Law (for example leisure activities, activities catering, fairs, seminars and trade shows, etc.). The suspension of the employment contract of an employee refusing to produce his supporting documents therefore only applies to places for which his supporting documents are required. The employment contract will thus be suspended until his situation is regularized. The employee can however ask his employer to set conventional days of rest or holidays. The employer cannot therefore require him to take any; this is therefore the sole initiative of the employee.

The law provides that at the end of the 3rd day of the suspension of the contract, the employer must organize an interview with the employee during which the means of regularizing his situation will be examined. How should he go about it?

Nothing is planned concerning the modalities of invitation to the interview (which is obligatory). However, I advise business leaders to be very careful with formalism. I recommend an invitation to an interview in LRAR with the aim of: “interview to discuss the means to regularize your situation”; a date of maintenance within a reasonable period of time (3-4 days after receipt of said registered letter, ie 5-6 days in practice). I also recommend that this interview be carried out by videoconference with a witness during the interview. It is also in the company’s interest to write a report after the interview.

Does the business manager have an obligation to seek a temporary assignment in a position not subject to the obligation to present a health pass?

It is an obligation of means and not of result. The company manager may, if he can, temporarily assign the employee to a position not subject to the obligation of the health pass or even offer 2 or 3 days per week of telework to the employee whose activity allows it. There is no doubt that the judges will verify whether the ?assignment search? has been respected and has been fair; it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t succeed. I think there will be a lot of litigation on this point. In fact, the two protagonists are at an impasse and the situation blocked. Since June, I unfortunately predict a very tumultuous return to the social plan. Employer-employee relations have deteriorated substantially since covid. The disputes are, I find, very violent. Some employees think that their ills come from the company or even from the employer. However, it is not. They are doing their best and trying to save jobs and their business. The media are also participating in this anxiety-provoking and deleterious situation.

What are the consequences of the suspension of the employee’s contract?

The answer is simple: no job, no salary. In addition, no acquisition on days off. The employee whose contract will be suspended may be legally replaced by another employee within the framework of a CDD having the health pass but this is not a solution. The situation will inevitably and quickly become unbearable for both parties. I think that the employer will have to consider an approved conventional termination for employees on CDI as soon as possible. I know that my advice will not please some employers who will refuse to pay a specific allowance but this will avoid some litigation and the situation will be more serene and clear. An employee will only resign if he finds a job, and again! For him, the severance pay is an ?asset?. In practice, I am convinced that some employees who do not plan to be vaccinated will simply take sickness in order to receive at least the daily allowance. This will further disorganize the company which does not need it today.

If the employee is a staff representative, is his mandate suspended like his employment contract?

No, of course, he continues to be a staff representative and as such he will be able to exercise his mandate, for example at a distance.

Regarding fixed-term contracts, does this suspension of the contract for lack of vaccination or representation of a health pass postpone the expiry of the contract?

The Ministry of Labor answers this question. There are two types of fixed-term contract: the date-to-date fixed-term contract (a start and an end of the contract). The contract will end on the scheduled date, without being extended by the duration of the suspension. If, on the other hand, the fixed-term contract has an uncertain term, it is the achievement of the object for which it was concluded that will constitute the term of the contract.

Can an employer require the employee to present proof of his vaccination or his health pass?

Yes, and if he does not do so he takes responsibility. If the employee refuses to present proof of his vaccination or his health pass in the activities which require it, the employer must refuse to make him work.
In conclusion, I think this Law risks creating new tensions. Caution is therefore required for business leaders who will have to demonstrate, once again, adaptability.

In Vire Normandie (Calvados), the handover during which the two craftsmen will have, with four hands, created a portal and restored a crown of wells (From left to right: Maud Guérin and Damien Picque; Patrick and Liliane Roger) (© La Voix Le Bocage)

Patrick Roger, ironworker, had started its activity in the Vaux de Vire Normandie (Calvados) in the mid-90s. He passed the torch.

Quickly, he forged a good reputation. With success, the premises quickly became cramped. With his wife Liliane, he seized in 2001 the opportunity to buy the old Gournay garage, route de Granville. A 1,800 m² hangar of which it will use 700 m² for its artistic ironwork activity. His wife Liliane will join the company in 2008 ?to develop supplier relationships but also in the oven? and in the mill,? she laughs. After forty years of hard work and passion, at the time of retiring, Patrick has just handed over to Damien Picque, a young colleague from Coursonnais.

Passion for the job

?I started at 17.5 years old with a CAP in metalwork and locksmithing. I had the chance to really learn the trade, on the job, with the elders. Today, I am happy to pass the business on to Damien and his wife Maud; young people to whom we wish, my wife Liliane and I, to have the same happiness as we had ?, reported Patrick Roger, not without a certain emotion. A handover during which the two men worked together for some time, in particular on the creation of an imposing portal and on the restoration of an exceptional ring of wells.

A new step for the buyer

For Damien Picque, this takeover is a new step in his professional career: after 15 years of salaried employment in various local companies, he now has access to entrepreneurship. This native of Saint-Sever, living in Courson with Maud, his wife, since 2014, is as passionate as his predecessor.

?I first obtained a BEP in 2005 and then a professional BAC in metal structures. But as I already liked working on the decorations, the meticulous finishes, all the artistic side, I then passed a CAP Ferronnerie d’Art. Becoming independent was a project and it was through word of mouth that I learned that Art du FeRoger was for sale. With Maud, we decided to get started ?.

Damien’s objective is twofold: to keep the company going with respect for tradition while adapting to changes in design and new trends; by bringing some new features such as, among others, the engine. Art du FeRoger becomes Sarl Picque Guérin Art du FeRoger.

Philip Morris International (PMI) has just perfected a new kind of vertical industrial concentration. The American manufacturer of Marlboro is on the verge of acquiring Vectura, a British pharmaceutical company which manufactures, among other things, asthma inhalers. From cigarettes, which cause respiratory illnesses, among other things, to treatment for the latter, the circle has come full circle.

On August 12, the board of directors of Vectura judged the offer to purchase from Philip Morris International at 1.1 billion pounds (1.3 billion euros) “Fair and reasonable” and recommends that its shareholders vote in favor of it. ?We are extremely shocked, reacts Sarah Woolnough, director of Asthma UK, a charity. It is completely absurd that PMI can make any money providing treatment to people that it makes sick itself. “

Beyond the ethical question, this acquisition is the latest in an avalanche of capital transactions in the United Kingdom. In the first seven months of the year, there have been nearly 2,500 acquisitions of British companies, the highest level since 1998, according to Refinitiv, a company that compiles financial data. In value, at 198 billion dollars (168 billion euros), this is the highest level since 2007, the year before the great financial crisis. The vast majority of buyers come from the United States.

A wave that affects all sectors

The trend continues in the height of summer. Morrisons supermarkets have been in the throes of a battle since June between the American investment funds Fortress and Clayton Dubilier & Rice, for an amount that will exceed 7 billion euros. Another fight is waged to get hold of Meggitt, a producer of components for planes and power plants. On Monday August 16, Ultra Electronics, a supplier to the Royal Navy (the British maritime armed force), was bought by its American competitor Cobham for 2.6 billion pounds.

In March 2021, the private security company G4S fell into the fold of the American Allied Universal for 3.8 billion pounds. The wave is affecting all sectors. “Many mid-sized companies are affected, which proves the good health of the UK mergers and acquisitions market”, notes Lucille Jones, analyst at Refinitiv.

According to Refinitiv, mergers and acquisitions across the world are at their highest in the first seven months of the year, amounting to $ 3.6 trillion, surpassing the previous 2007 record ($ 2.9 trillion). dollars).
