An Incentive agency that takes its clients to the four corners of the world.

2016 – Sag 4.0 and the SagBoard!

Sagarmatha initiates an innovative, collaborative governance model led by four Managing Directors, Sylviane Girardo, Alban Hugonnet, Manuel Solé and Stéphane Polisset: the SagBoard.

This is a larger decision-making body bringing together 12 elected employees and managers, which meets twice a year to discuss strategic topics and take collective decisions about the life and future of the agency.

The SagBoard won the 2017 Managerial Innovation Award at the MR21 Forum (Association for the Development of Responsible Management).

We’re proud of this collective adventure!
