In 1977, Gérard Mulliez decided to open up the group’s capital to employees.
The Valauchan Investment Fund was created on 2 December that year. Today, more than 98% employees hold shares in the company.


To make it possible for each shareholder / employee to:

  • Understand the rationale of a sound business management mode,
  • Know the performance levers of a commercial business 
  •  Become familiar with performance improvement strategies


All AUCHAN France sites have a training tool – « how to understand the trading account and incentives »
This half-day training session, which was launched in 2009, is based on simulation exercises to enable every trainee to view in real time the consequences of his/her actions – from trade to results.
After this training session, every employee can better identify levers which he/she can apply.
