A resource for colleagues, interco and employees

[CC du val d’Amour (Jura) 24 communes • 9 100 hab.] Carried by the municipal community of Val d’Amor, third place in Chambal (425 inhabitants), affiliated with the Reliance D’Enterprise (1), Two double offices, three single offices, a meeting room for 20 to 40 people and a lounge, all equipped with WiFi, photocopiers and scanners. Opened in November 2019, it is 80% occupied, according to Interco.

The relevance of a peer-to-peer location in Chambly has been verified by the Relais d’entreprises study office. “We weren’t taking any risks, the building was ours,” said Remy Gauthier, general manager of Interco Services. At the beginning of the operation, the first tenants lived within a 10-kilometer radius of the village: “We had a web designer, an alternative medicine professional …” Remy Gauthier explained.

A psychologist, two lawyers, an engineer …

When it reopened in the spring of 2020 after the first captivity, the third place gained momentum. “We have regulars: a psychologist who started his career in June, two Parisian lawyers who come to their second home three weeks a month, a mechanical engineer from a Paris start-up, two people who make travel products and live there part-time, Remy. Gauthier explains: “Sometimes there are people who come one or two days a week: tourists from Essonne, Vendée or Switzerland do exclusive telework.”

There are still a few places left for occasional telecommuters and one or two regular occupants.

“I have to get out of my daily life.”

Cedric Lincoln, Mechanical engineer and permanent telecom worker

“I have been doing homework for a Paris-based company since 2017, and my boss accepted the offer. Several reasons led me to join a co-worker in Chambal, 2 km from my home: captivity and the difficulty of working with children at home, the crowd of my two 3D printers at home, the need to get out of my daily life and a social life. In addition, we were hiring someone who was not easy to train from a distance. In September 2020, I rented a double office for the two of us in a well-equipped co-op location with fiber.
