The city is home to numerous architectural gems and landmarks that have been recognized by UNESCO and many of which have become listed as a World Heritage Site.

Lyon is divided into nine municipal districts or arrondissements, each of which has its council, town hall, and Mayor. The district councils manage many local facilities, including daycare and nursery schools, stadiums, gymnasiums, and parks. The City Council comprises 73 members, each elected for six-year terms and presided over by the Mayor. Currently, the Mayor is Grégory Doucet (member of the Europe Ecology – The Greens). He was elected on 4 July 2020, and he was preceded by Gérard Collomb (member of the French Socialist Party), who was the Mayor of Lyon in the 25 March 2001 – 17 July 2017 period.

Economy of Lyon

Lyon is France’s second-largest business center after Paris and one of France’s most important economic powerhouses. According to Adderly (the Lyon area economic agency), in 2018, the Lyon metropolitan area GDP was estimated at €89.5 billion. Across the wider Rhône-Alpes region (€270 billion), the GDP was 3 times higher than other European areas. The Rhône-Alpes regional GDP is also the 5th highest in Europe.

Lyon’s tertiary sector is its most prominent, followed by industry and agriculture. The city’s primary industries are consumer services, finance, real estate, business services, tourism, and retail. Notable sectors of excellence include the Bio-industry, Cleantech, Information Technology, and Fashion and Design. High Tech industries, in particular, are all experiencing rapid growth, with the city becoming a burgeoning center for software development, game design,

As the second touristic destination city, after Paris, Lyon’s tourism also plays a vital role in the local economy. The city attracts around 6 million of visitors per year (primarily for business purposes). There is also the leading international train station in France: Part-Dieu train station: 125,000 daily passengers (2018) and over 28 million passengers annually (est. 2019).

Infrastructure of Lyon

Strategically situated at an important international crossroads, Lyon has a modern infrastructure that links to other major cities and neighboring countries via well-maintained, toll-free motorways and railways.

The city is located at the convergence of three major motorways, including the A6, A7, A42, and A43 allowing for rapid access to all major conurbations in the country.

Downtown Lyon operates a fast and efficient public transport system that consists of a metro system, tramways, and buses. The city has two major railway stations, the Gare de Perrache, which handles regional rail services, and the Gare de la Part-Dieu, which handles France’s high-speed rail service – the TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse). Operated by SNCF Voyages, the service maintains railways stretching for around 4000 kilometers in the region and some 1000 daily trains that run to major domestic and international destinations.

The metro system has four main lines that link 39 stations with trains running as frequently as every two minutes, while the tram system boasts four lines that take passengers around the city center and surrounding suburbs.

Lyon is served by Saint Exupéry Airport, located some 25 kilometers east of the city center, and is France’s fourth busiest airport. The airport operates international flights all over Europe and beyond, moving an estimated 11,739,450 passengers per year and over 30, 120 tonnes of freight.

Workforce in Lyon

Lyon enjoys the second largest labor pool in France, with the latest figures estimating that the wider Rhône-Alpes region had a workforce of around 2.5 million. Three-quarters of the working population is employed by the tertiary sector, while a quarter is in the public sector. The most significant proportion (35%) of workers are in the consumer services, including health, education, social services, and administration, followed by 21% in business services, 17% in industry, 14% in commerce, and 6% in construction.

The city benefits from a highly skilled and educated workforce that results from an excellent education system, which the government invests a significant proportion of its GDP into each year. Schooling is compulsory and accessible to all children from 6 through to 16 years old. The system is financed through taxation and is divided into four levels, Preschool, Primary, Secondary and Higher education.

As the second-largest education hub in the country, Lyon is home to around 30 universities and higher education institutions that educate an estimated 10% of France’s higher education students (including some 15,000 international students). Lyon’s renowned institutes and research facilities turn out countless qualified students, researchers, and employees each year. The most known university is the University of Lyon, founded in 1896. There are more than 120,000 enrolled students, and over 16, 000 academic & administrative staff.

Business Costs in Lyon

From 2022, the standard corporate tax rate is 25% on all profits. Individual taxes are based on both a progressive and share system, from 0% to 45%. The amount payable depends on the amount earned and the number of people part of the family (living in the same household).

The value-added tax rate in France is 20%.

A wage pact is known as the Salaire Minimum Interprofessionnel de Croissance (SMIC), which ensures workers are paid at least €10.52 per hour, or €1.539,42 EUR a month on the standard 35-hour workweek. Labor costs are relatively high for a European country – even higher than the United Kingdom’s minimum wage of £5.80 per hour, which converts to €6.63 per hour.

Lyon offered competitive location costs versus other major European cities, with an average office rental cost of €260/sq.m per year. Both Paris CBD and Paris La Defence have significantly higher rental costs at €700/sq.m and €550/sq.m per year, respectively.

WordPress Maintenance Packages in Lyon – Why Do You Need It?

To keep your WordPress website performing well after its online publication, your website still needs to be managed and technically maintained. It is not prudent to just publish your website and walk away thinking “job-done”.

Search engines such as GoogleYahoo!, and Bing are constantly evolving using artificial intelligence and changing their algorithms (the way they evaluate your website) to finely hone their user’s search experience. Therefore, properly managing and technically maintaining a website ensures it stays in tune with changing search engine technology and software environment.

After the publication of your website, I can continue to be the webmaster for your website, providing website technical support and carrying out any website maintenance required.

The WordPress Maintenance Packages in Lyon are renewable monthly or annually, and, depending on your specific case, it can include the renewal of hosting space and domain name, maintaining website security, monitoring website traffic, search engine re-submissions and tracking changes, as well as recovering your website in case of disaster.

Nowadays, many people simply forget to backup their enterprise website: Maybe the stress of running their business, the lack of knowledge, or any other reasons.

Some of the bad scenarios when you need a site backup:

  • Hacked site recovery – In case you need to recover your business website very fast, and in the same way it was, you need a backup.
  • WordPress updates break your website – It happens. Every time you make a theme or plugin update, make sure you do a backup before. Most people put those updates on “auto” mode, meaning your WordPress site can go down while your potential clients are surfing on it. That’s bad!
  • Cheap hosting – One of the biggest problems with those cheap hosting providers ($1/month, $5/month, $15/month) with UNLIMITED traffic, UNLIMITED domains, and other misleading offers may disappear after a few weeks you just bought their plan(s). Guess what?! Your website will disappear, too. In order to keep your website online, you need someone (person or software) to take care of it, and take prompt action in case of any problems.

In any case, you need a fresh and well-structured backup of your website. But these WordPress site maintenance services aren’t only about backups. I also provide Security protection for your site and implement the last réglementation in the matter of WordPress security.

Why is WordPress website maintenance important?

WordPress is the most successful CMS (*content management system). Due to its heavy use worldwide, however, it is also a popular target for hackers. Similar to an operating system on the computer, WordPress must be updated regularly. Functionalities are expanded and security gaps are closed. Once regularly updated, WordPress is stable and secure. However, WordPress installations that are rarely updated or not updated at all are vulnerable and run the risk of being infected by malicious code.

I take care of all the necessary details to make your WordPress website more secure and regularly update the WordPress core system and all plugins used. In the first step, I carry out a basic check of your WordPress website. I check the WordPress core data, plugins, and themes used. I check the performance and carry out the first security checks. Your system is checked for security gaps and for viruses, malware, or Trojans. I am interested in the general condition of your website and the associated immunity of the system. As soon as the basis is right, all further work follows.

I keep your WordPress website up to date with regular updates

For the operation of a professional WordPress website, it is necessary to ensure regular updates of the system and the installed plugins and themes. Regular updates are the basic work for a safe and stable WordPress website. I carry out these essential tasks and constantly stabilize the immune system of your website. At the same time, we check the compatibility of the individual plugins and the functionality of the entire website after each update.

I create backups of your WordPress website

Your website is important to your business and often the focus of many marketing efforts. A successful website puts a lot of time and energy into it. This business area can be temporarily paralyzed by WordPress problems such as incompatible plugins or themes. This is not yet about hacker attacks or other infections. That’s why regular backups are the reinsurance of your website. Thanks to a WordPress backup, we can quickly restore the normal operation of your website in an emergency. I take care of your WordPress security and create regular data backups on external servers and secure your business sustainably.

I check your WordPress website after each update

In addition to the necessary updates to the WordPress core version and the plugins used to keep your website stable and up-to-date, a subsequent check of your website for functionality is mandatory. Since plugins are offered by different developers and companies, incompatibilities can never be ruled out. Especially when using many plugins, the risk increases, and problems can occur. Therefore, a function test of the website after each update should be routine. I offer you this routine and can also carry out an analysis of the plugins you use to determine whether they are necessary.
