IN THE SHADE OF LIGHT
A family led group founded in Paris in 1921, Chabé today is established throughout France and operates around the world, continuing to develop across the globe. Expert in bespoke transport, the group has ten subsidiaries. Its historic expertise with luxury hotels has diversified over the last thirty years. Many companies today trust Chabé with the daily travel arrangements of their executives. Chabé also works with a growing number of public and private organisations and luxury businesses, managing the customised travel arrangements for their different events and needs.
The group has 250 salaried chauffeurs and 70 other employees working in operations, finance, sales, digital, technical maintenance and human resources. Chabé’s expertise is reflected in the collaboration between chauffeurs and the front- and back-office teams.
Our four values represent our purpose and are the essence of how our teams operate. The customer experience stems from our expertise and upholding our four values.
At Chabé we enjoy a challenge. We like demanding projects, discerning customers and unique situations. With experience and over time, we have learned how to do things we have never done before.
Our primary concern is to please our customers, anticipate their needs and go beyond their expectations. We do everything to make sure there are no “buts” because kindness is the only difference between a high-quality service and an exceptional one.
As customer schedules and deadlines can be stressful, we do everything to make sure that our services take out the worry and tension, whatever the situation or context is.
When success comes down to delivering the finest details, an organisation is only as strong as every player in the team. Chabé’s culture is deeply rooted in collaboration and team work; the whole is more than the sum of its parts.
In 2019, Chabé launched an ambitious and voluntary CSR initiative. The adopted action plan prioritises environmental protection and job sustainability.
Chabé is offsetting all the carbon emissions generated by its services through the Good Planet Foundation. Chabé will replace all of its fleet with the lowest emission vehicles possible – as soon as they are available on the market.
All our chauffeurs are trained in eco-driving techniques in our in-house training school. All our teams recycle consumables wherever possible (ink cartridges, wastewater, water bottles, etc.).
We seek to digitise our business wherever we can replacing the need for paper. Today the order process is digitalised (from the creation of an order to the transmission of data to the chauffeurs). The is same is true for all of training materials that are delivered on line and accessed through mobile devices.
We prioritise permanent positions for professional chauffeurs. Over 75% of full-time Chabé chauffeurs have permanent contracts. All our chauffeurs are paid fairly, significantly above the legal minimum.
