Questions about your employment and working conditions at CERN? Contact your nearest Staff Association representative!

One of the Staff Association's Infom-Action Commission’s responsibilities is facilitating direct communication between members of the personnnel and the Association.

With the aim of finding an efficient means to identify staff association representatives, the commission worked closely with the SMB department and using the GIS portal, set-up a platform for you to look up your representative and their physical location on the CERN Site.

Geneviève Guinot and diversity - in it for the long-haul

Geneviève Guinot welcomes to her office, glass of water in her hand and smiling, her eyes betray a lively spirit where ideas fuse. Passionate about her work, we discover the energy that drives her and the diversity of the missions she accomplishes.

Let’s talk about Diversity. A crucial subject for CERN and an ongoing struggle that she led over 4 years, spanning from 2014 to 2018.

Going for Gold!

On 8 June 2018, 55 CERN athletes travelled to Varese, Italy, to compete in the 16th Atomiade organised by JRC-Ispra over two days. The Atomiade are just one in a group of sports events organised by ASCERI (the Association of the Sports Communities of the European Research Institutes) which aims to contribute to a united Europe through regular sports meetings, bringing together members of public Research Institutes at European level) and are held every three years.

The CERN athletes joined over 1500 participants from 42 European Research Institutes, originating from 16 different countries in a range of tournaments and disciplines including athletics, football, golf, cycling and mountain biking, table tennis, tennis and volley ball. In some cases, the CERN teams were defending their title (tennis and volleyball) whilst other competitors were aiming for a record or a personal best, but all were united in their pride to represent CERN and their desire to (re)connect with old friends and new from the other participating institutes.

The Art of Reading Aloud Day celebrated for the First time in Switzerland

Once upon a time, in the CERN Staff Association Nursery School and crèche, something very magical happened.

Initiated by the ‘Institut Suisse Jeunesse et Media (ISJM) the first ever ‘Reading Aloud Day’ took place on 23 May 2018 throughout the whole of Switzerland.

The goal of this nationwide event is to promote and celebrate the art of reading aloud, not only a pleasure which can be shared, but also a primary and highly useful educational aid. The nursery School and crèche was amongst the hundreds of other public and private establishments to take part.
